3D carbon nanostructures’ thermal transport abilities. Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University engineers. Materials scientist Rouzbeh Shahsavari and alumnus Navid Sakhavand first built atom-level computer models of pillared graphene – sheets of graphene connected by covalently bonded carbon nanotubes – to discover their strength and electrical properties as well as their thermal conductivity.
Novel 3-step pretargeted radioimmunotherapy offers safe, effective treatment. In this study with a mouse model, researchers achieved a 100% cure rate -without any treatment-related toxic effects. Until now, radioimmunotherapy (targeted therapy) of solid tumors using antibody-targeted radionuclides has had limited therapeutic success. “This research is novel because of the benchmarks reached by the treatment regimen, in terms of curative tumor doses, with non-toxic secondary radiation to the body’s normal tissues,” explains Steven M...Read More
Dendritic fibrous nanosilica (DFNS) attracted a great deal of attention in a large number of scientific disciplines such as catalysis, solar energy harvesting (photocatalysis, solar cells, etc...Read More
ESA and NASA mission SOHO – Solar and Heliospheric Observatory – got a visit from an old friend this week when comet 96P entered its field of view on Oct. 25, 2017. The comet entered the lower right corner of SOHO’s view, and skirted up and around the right edge before leaving on Oct. 30. SOHO also spotted comet 96P in 1996, 2002, 2007 and 2012, making it the spacecraft’s most frequent cometary visitor.
