Nanotechnology in Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics

The first developments in Flexible Electronics extend back to the 1970s, when the first developments in a-SI technologies began. This technology allowed the use of electronic circuits that have special properties related to their mechanical stability, since they are lightweights, rugged, bendable and rollable ...

Agglomeration Tendency in Dry Pharmaceutical Granular Systems During Blending: De-Agglomeration Modeling Approaches

Efficient blending of powders is of critical importance in the manufacture of a wide variety of industrial products, including pharmaceuticals, foods, plastics and agrochemicals [1, 2]. This study determined the influence of geometry of blenders (double cone blender and V-blender), blending speed and time. ...

Lipoprotein Nanoparticles and Their Role in Cardiovascular Disease Management – A Review

Two key lipoprotein nanoparticles, high density lipoproteins (HDL) and low density lipoproteins (LDL), are associated with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). HDL is smallest lipoprotein (~10nm) and considered as good cholesterol where as LDL (20-27nm) is considered as bad cholesterol. ...

Ten Years After: Ethical Legal and Social Impacts of Nanotechnology

In 2016 nanotechnology was proclaimed yet again as a "revolution" for science and industry. Costs and benefits of applying this novel technology have been debated in detail throughout the past decade before many legislatures. Ethical and social implications of those costs and benefits have reached the level of debate the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council ...

Application of Simulation Molecular and Artificial Neuronal Networks in the Analysis of Adsorption of PMMA in Polyurethane/Graphene Nanocomposites

There has been an increasing amount of interest in the design and preparation of new biomaterials that can be used in the fabrication of medical devices for artificial prostheses or implant applications. The remarkable properties of graphene provide essentially infinite possibilities for various applications. One such area is the biomedical applications ...

Nano-Theranostics – Innovative Synergy of Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Prognosis and Continuous Monitoring Using Multifunctional Nanomaterials

Theranostics is a new promising medical paradigm that synergistically utilise therapeutic and diagnostic capabilities of agents for diagnosis, drug delivery or therapy and therapy response recording. This field is further evolving fast into the nanotheranostic field which is immensely benefitted by multifunctional ...

Review of the Patented Electrostatic Air Filter-Materials and Designs Controlling Technology

Nano particles play a major role in research and high-end applications including composite [1–4], functional surfaces [5,6], analysis [7,8] and new materials [9]. However, controlling the nanoparticles is critical since nanoparticles itself could a significant health concern. Many patented efforts have been contributed looking approaches to developing a new material to control the particles including nanoparticle. ...

A New Grand Challenge for Nanotechnology: The Mom Project; Public Comments for NNI

Nanotechnology is increasingly moving from laboratories into commerce and has become "ubiquitous" in the global economy, according to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) created by the US Congress to Advise the President of the United States about major issues in science. ...

Crystalline Structure of Functionalized MWCNTs/Poly(L-lactide) Biodegradable Polymer Nanocomposites

In this paper, well dispersed Multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT)s were prepared by grafting of Poly (L-lactide) (PLLA) biodegradable polymer from the sidewall of aminated MWCNTs using oligomeric L-lactide (LA) (MWCNT-PLLA). After preparation of MWCNT-PLLAs/PLLA composites, the effect of MWCNT-PLLAs on crystallinity ...

Thermo-Acoustics and Rheological Properties of Various Heat Transfer Fluids Blended with Cuo Nanoparticles

The purpose of the present investigation is to study the effect of adding copper oxide nano powder to the conventional heat transfer fluids for their thermal and acoustics properties. CuO nano powder was synthesized and subsequently different nanofluids were prepared in various base fluids such as water, ethylene glycol (EG), tri-ethylene glycol ...

Diabetes Mellitus and Nanotechnology: Treatment in the 21st Century

Diabetes is a burden both nationally and internationally: it is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States; and afflicts 25.9% of U.S. seniors over 65, 9.3% of Americans overall, and8.5% of individuals, worldwide. This paper reviews current ...

Advanced AuNMs as Nanomedicine'scentral Goals Capable of Active Targeting in Both Imaging and Therapy in Biomolecules

The stability and dispersity of AuNMs in solution play a key role for the many applications. Most inorganic nonmaterial's are not well dispersed in physiological buffers and require functionalization by thiols or surfactants to offer the stabilization forces. Furthermore, sufficient blood circulation ...

Nanosurgery Myth or Miracle A Review

To perform nanosurgery, precise molecular incisions need to be made at a level that is about a billion times smaller than most surgical instruments. Not long ago nanosurgery on the human genome seemed intangible, inaccessible and a therapeutic of the distant future. With the discovery ...

A Performance Comparision of Nanofluids Using Solar Flat Plate Collector and Flow is Simulated in Computational Fluid Dynamics (Cfd) Analysis

Flat Plate Collector (FPC) is widely used for domestic hot-water, space heating/drying and for applications requiring fluid temperature less than 100°C. Nanofluids are one of the combination of fluid and Nano-sized solid particles which are relatively used for some advanced applications .The mixture of Nanofluids and water to increase ...

Nano-systems for Cosmetic, and their Nanotoxicity and Regulatory Issues

Nano-systems can help penetrate or absorb cosmeceuticals actives within epidermal layers and/or in the dermis in a controlled way to achieve burst or/and sustain release of actives. A variety of nanomaterials have been developed and used in cosmetics. ...
