Israeli researchers at one company, ApNano Materials Inc. in New York, have shown off a breastplate of nanometals said to be five times as strong as steel.
Bottom line, they are "virtually invisible" when applied to the skin - far moreso, Zhang says, than the nanometals are.
Moreover, ivy's nanoparticles are more selective at screening out UV rays than are the nanometals, which in this case means that ivy's don't block visible wavelengths.
The grant was awarded under the commission's Energy Innovations Small Grant program (EISG) and will fund the one-year development of an algae biogasification process that utilizes nanometals as catalysts for the purposes of turning vegetation and similar biomass materials into methane, hydrogen, or other synthetic gases that can be used for transportation and other energy needs.
Earlier today, the Federal Register carried a notice regarding the 4 day consultation meeting of the FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel concerning the assessment of hazard and exposure associated with nanosilver and other nanometals in pesticides, previously announced in the FR for
But three Johns Hopkins University researchers affiliated with the Institute for NanoBioTechnology hope to gain some insight on those effects by studying the ability of nanometals to access lung tissues, their potential to trigger pro-inflammatory reactions by cells that line the lung airways, and even the extent to which workers are exposed in a nanomaterials manufacturing setting.
Mechanochemical technology is being applied in many industrial fields: powder metallurgy (synthesis of nanometals, alloys and nanocompounds), building industry
