Self-Organization Makes for Efficient Separation

Press Releases

Separation technology is at the heart of water purification, sewage treatment and reclaiming materials, as well as numerous basic industrial processes. Membranes are used to separate out the smallest, nanoscale particles and even molecules and metal ions. Prof...

The nanoFate Model Assesses the Risk of Engineered Nanomaterials in the Environment

Press Releases

While there is currently no evidence that engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) pose a significant threat to the environment, many gaps in our knowledge remain with regard to ENM ecotoxicity. The lack of evidence should by no means be interpreted to imply that environmental damage cannot occur (read more: Nanotechnology and the environment – Hazard potentials and risks)...

Better Living Through Pressure: Functional Nanomaterials Made Easy

Press Releases

Using pressure instead of chemicals, a Sandia National Laboratories team has fabricated nanoparticles into nanowire-array structures similar to those that underlie the surfaces of touch-screens for sensors, computers, phones and TVs. The pressure-based fabrication process takes nanoseconds. Chemistry-based industrial techniques take hours...

All-Printed Thin-Film Transistors from Networks of Liquid-Exfoliated Nanosheets

Press Releases

Researchers in AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland-funded materials science research centre hosted in Trinity College Dublin, have fabricated printed transistors consisting entirely of 2-dimensional nanomaterials for the first time. These 2D materials combine exciting electronic properties with the potential for low-cost production...
