Industrial pollution particles found in brains of city dwellers

Industrial pollution particles found in brains of city dwellers The team found high levels of nanoparticles made of a mineral called magnetite.More importantly, they found evidence that these nanoparticles were taken up from air polluted by industrial processes.

Microscopic magnets could revolutionize drug delivery

Microscopic magnets could revolutionize drug delivery In theory, superparamagnetic particles can be ideal for drug delivery because an external magnetic field could essentially drag them around the body.The development of larger superparamagnetic crystals could allow doctors to create special crystals for drug delivery.

Nanotubes rear their tiny heads again, this time as a stamp for electronic inks

Nanotubes rear their tiny heads again, this time as a stamp for electronic inks A team at MIT has developed a high-tech stamping process that involves a “forest” of carbon nanotubes, capable of printing electronic inks onto almost any surface, whether rigid or flexible.When densely packed, nanotubes can act as nanoscale print heads for electronic inks.
