Aerogels: all you need to know

Aerogels belongs to a class of solid porous materials that shows a long array of extreme material properties. Aerogels are so amazing that almost everyone who see this material for the first time will simply be astonished by it. The name “aerogel” would indicate towards its character. The adjective “Aero” mean air and the “Gel” … Continue reading

5 leading nanotechnology water purification methods

Clean drinking water is a basic human need. The pity is after so much of advancement in science and technology, 780 million people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water even today. To put it in to a context, this number is slightly higher than the population of all European countries … Continue reading

Scientists roll up and inject brain implants using a syringe (just like a drug)!

The day has come! Scientists now can just inject the electronics in to living things (and the subject lives) just like any other drug. Amazingly, they picked the most complex place to begin with; brain. The work was truly groundbreaking in its field and described in Nature Nanotechnology journal two months back. The research was … Continue reading

Nanofiber air filters can even stop a virus from getting through

Nanofibers have a very special place in nanomaterials world. Among other things, most important character of nanofibers is their extremely high aspect ratio, or in other words, the ratio between the length of the fiber to diameter of the fiber. Scientists can now make nanofibers from number of different types of materials. They have number … Continue reading
