Nanoethics on the World Wide Web is a centralized resource for teaching materials on social and ethical issues related to nanotechnology. This site features original case studies and white papers as well as a compilation of existing materials from around the web.
Nanoparticle research - simulating the Invisible (w/video), These animations, resulting from molecular dynamics simulations, illuminate what happens, atom-by-atom, when two nanoparticles collide.
Questions arise on the stability of graphene as a platform for photocatalysis, Ever since its discovery in 2004, graphene has been considered a relatively stable, high surface area platform to anchor nanostructured catalyst materials for various electrochemical and photocatalytic applications. The emergence of solution-based graphene in the form of graphene oxide has enabled new wet-chemistry approaches to the creation of graphene-based nanocomposites. A new study raises questions about the long-term stability of reduced graphene oxide in an aqueous environment where hydroxyl radicals can be present as part of the photocatalytic reaction cycle.read more
