Researchers design treatment to protect bones during cancer therapy

 Nanotechnology News
 26 September 2022
University of Central Florida material sciences engineers Melanie Coathup and Sudipta Seal have designed a cerium oxide nanoparticle—an artificial enzyme—that protects bones against damage from radiation. The nanoparticle has also shown abilities to improve bone regeneration, reduce loss of blood...

New nanocomposite films boost heat dissipation in thin electronics

 Nanotechnology News
 26 September 2022
The last few decades have witnessed a tremendous advance in electronics technology, with the development of devices that are thinner, lightweight, flexible, and robust. However, as the devices get thinner so does the space for accommodating the internal working components. This has created an issue...

Solving stability problems of relevant graphene derivatives

 Nanotechnology News
 26 September 2022
In the last decades, a new synthetic approach has been developed, generally termed as "on-surface synthesis" that substantially departs from standard wet-chemistry. Instead of the three-dimensional space of solvents in the latter, the environment of the reactants in this new approach are...

DNA nets capture COVID-19 virus in low-cost rapid-testing platform

 Nanotechnology News
 23 September 2022
Tiny nets woven from DNA strands can ensnare the spike protein of the virus that causes COVID-19, lighting up the virus for a fast-yet-sensitive diagnostic test—and also impeding the virus from infecting cells, opening a new possible route to antiviral treatment, according to a new study....
