Nanoparticle-based drug is less harmful to fertility

From nanoparticles in new drugs and novel therapeutics, to imaging at the cellular level and understanding how bacteria work, nanotechnology is at the heart of many biotechnology advances

New nanoparticles research

A Wayne State University researcher has successfully tested a technique that can lead to more effective use of nanoparticles as a drug delivery system.

New catalyst of platinum nanoparticles

Scientists have discovered a catalyst and catalyst-support combination that could make fuel cells more stable, conk-out free, inexpensive and more resistant to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Freeze Drying of Nanoparticles

The major obstacle that limits the use of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems is the physical instability that is frequently found when such systems are stored for an extended time period.

Nanoparticles target and kill cancer cells

Another weapon in the arsenal against cancer: Nanoparticles that identify, target and kill specific cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.

Magnetic nanoparticles multitask duties

Whether it's magnetic nanoparticles (mNPs) giving white blood cells directions to invade or the use of mNPs to target specific nerve channels and induce nerve-led behaviour, mNPs have come a long way in the past decade.

Controlling the structure of nanoparticles

Scientists have learned how to consistently create hollow, solid and amorphous nanoparticles of nickel phosphide, which has potential uses in the development of solar cells and as catalysts for removing sulphur from fuel.
