A large amount of experimental data on the characteristics of nanomaterials can be obtained by use of these techniques. But these data should be generalized, represented in the form of a knowledge base.


Knowledge Base is the tool of generalization of experimental data, the tool of uncovering hidden patterns; the tool for creation of multifactor computational models. These computational models are able to predict the properties and characteristics of nanomaterials of the uninvestigated compositions or for previously unstudied modes of technological processes.

The purpose of our project is to create a knowledge base by means of Data Mining.

The project will use a Russian side analytical platform that contains all tools of Data Mining. It are able to meet the challenges of the project at the advanced level.

Examples of our studies deal with the project are presented in our report: http://www.nanopaprika.eu/group/nanoindiadays/page/nid2012-201


So, Dear Dr. Sanjeev Srivastava, we suggest to add our possibilities for your  Micro and Nano Characterizations Facility.

Great job...Thanks a lot for the information

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
