Nanosilver in textiles – friend or foe?
Nanosilver in textiles – friend or foe? Silver has been used as biocide for medical purposes since the 1930s. Today nanometric size silver particles are used to prevent unpleasant odour caused by bacteria in sport shirts or socks .

Nanotechnological innovations can improve water purification
Nanotechnological innovations can improve water purification Membranes for water purification are used in many applications and different types of membranes are being developed at the moment. No membrane can filter and purify water entirely, but improvements using novel kinds of membranes are made.
Uncertainties surrounding nanoparticles aimed for medical use
Uncertainties surrounding nanoparticles aimed for medical use Researchers are trying to find out more about the relationship between different NPs’ shapes, sizes and surface chemistries and how they behave in the human body.
Nano Filtered Water
Nano Filtered Water The filter could be used to recycle sewage on a space station, but the main focus is the use of ultra pure water in the fabrication of semiconductors.
The Magic Touch
The Magic Touch The “ nano wrap ” that is being developed to be fitted around an amputee’s upper arm nerve bundle is the ambitious other part of the Smarthand’s robotic hand project.
