Progress in self-assembling nanomaterials

Progress in self-assembling nanomaterials
Mimicking how the biological world arranges itself could help advance the next generation of nanomaterials. This is the message from a review in the Science and Technology of Advanced Materials journal, which has argued that collaboration between material scientists, biologists and chemists could advance the development of self-assembling nanomaterials, called nanoarchitectonics.

Gold nanorods could help develop smaller mercury sensors

Mercury is harmful even in small amounts. Detecting it currently requires expensive equipment. Researchers are working on a faster and cheaper alternative: a portable sensor that can perform a rapid analysis in the field. The key is finding something small and accurate enough to do the job. For many years, scientists have studied tiny gold nanorods for making smaller mercury sensors.
