Forecasting air pollution
Forecasting air pollution Air quality is not a local problem. Like clouds moving through the sky, pollution is transported from one location to another by wind patterns in the atmosphere .
Nanodiamonds: a cancer patient’s best friend?
Nanodiamonds: a cancer patient’s best friend? Diamonds are sometimes considered as a girl’s best friend. Now, this expression is about to have a new meaning. Indeed, nanometric scale diamond particles could offer a new way to detect cancer far earlier than previously thought.

Gold nanoparticles enhance cancer diagnostics
Gold nanoparticles enhance cancer diagnostics Gold nanoparticles ( AuNPs ) present the many advantages of displaying relative biocompatibility, high light absorption and strong optical scattering properties. They are therefore good candidates to be used as probes for cancer imaging .
