It’s a small world, after all

Mikrobecher aus Nanopapier gibt es dank des Forscherfleißes der Menschen um Z. Ryan Tian, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry am Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences der University of Arkansas. (via Slashdot).

University of Arkansas researchers have created assemblies of nanowires that show potential in applications such as armor, flame-retardant fabric, bacteria filters, oil cracking, controlled drug release, decomposition of pollutants and chemical warfare agents.

This two-dimensional „paper“ can be shaped into three-dimensional devices. It can be folded, bent and cut, or used as a filter, yet it is chemically inert, remains robust and can be heated up to 700 degrees Celsius.

Aber jäder nor einen wänzigen Schlock!
