Tags: nanoparticles


In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. It is further classified according to size: in terms of diameter, fine particles cover a range between 100 and 2500nanometers, while ultrafine particles, on the other hand, are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers. Similar to ultrafine particles, nanoparticles are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers.

  1. Use Of Nanotechnology In Cosmetics

    25 Jan 2018 | Posted by Ivan Serrano

    Nanotechnology science is the manipulation of atoms and molecules to become one-billionth of a meter. That is smaller than the human hair by 80, 000 times. This unit is known as a nanoscale. It...

  3. Multiscale Modelling of Nanoparticle Suspensions

    12 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pietro Asinari

    In the present work a multiscale modelling approach is implemented to relate the nanoscale phenomena to the macroscopic bulk properties of nano-suspensions. Specifically, Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations and Brownian Dynamics (BD) are synergistically integrated to understand the mechanisms...

  4. Semi Glass Concrete : An innovative nanoconcrete

    13 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: QUSI ALQAWASMEH

    Concrete is considered as the most omnipresent material in the world which has many properties exist in different scales; nano, micro, and macro scale. Each property for a certain scale strongly depends on the same property for the nearest smaller scale. In fact, the nanometer- to...

  6. How to Engineer Human Microbiomes?

    02 Mar 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mohit Verma

    We are developing tools based on nanotechnology, bioengineering, and analytical chemistry to understand causal relationships between microbiomes and their hosts, and to manipulate microbiomes for desirable outcomes, e.g. to shift patients from unhealthy to healthy states. One of these tools uses...

  7. Nanoparticle Pollutants

    17 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Darren Hayes, Nancy Healy

    Many plastics are in our oceans due to pollution, including ocean dumping and land runoff. Sunlight and alkaline ocean water break these plastics down into small particles, many are nanoscale in size. These nanoparticles can easily enter our cells. Students examine if and how  these...
