Nanotechnology can be described as the science of and technology for creating substances from single molecules or atoms. It is concerned with the applications and properties of materials with different structure sizes, from one nanometer to 100 nanometers. When studying substances’ compositions, scientists discovered many new characteristics. A technology which uses these properties to build devices with particular functions is called nanotechnology. These are just three of the amazing applications that nanotechnology can have.
People can lose weight with a new kind of nanoparticle
Scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts Institute of Technology collaborated on a new nanoparticle to help people lose weight. This nanoparticle delivers weight-loss medications directly to adipose. Treatment with nanoparticles resulted in obese rats losing 10% of body weight within just 25-days.
Researchers use weight-loss medicines to change white adipose material into brown. This medication is not novel. It is not new. The researchers have invented a type of nanoparticle which transports medicines into adipose, where they accumulate in the body.
A third of Americans, statistics show, are obese. Overweight was the cause of 20% in the US’ 600,000 cases of cancer. It is essential that many people lose weight. Weight loss can be viewed as a matter of dieting and exercise. Many people become more obese when they stop exercising after trying to lose weight. This is why scientists have worked for years to eradicate the obesity gene.
This is a method to lose weight that uses nanoparticles. It delivers drugs to specific areas, transforms damaged fat cells, as well as achieving the goal of burning fat. It’s more powerful and faster, making weight loss simple.
Miniparticles: Germs are “nowhere for to hide”
Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichiacoli have long been known to cause infections. Escherichiacoli is capable of causing food poisoning symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, and fever.
Dong Wenfei’s Suzhou Medical Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed an improved magnetic mesoporous Nanoparticle. It can be combined with bacteriostatic materials in order to eradicate Gram-negative Escherichiacoli from its surface and make it disappear. The surfaces of the Nanoparticle and bacteria have a positive charge. You can use electrostatic motion to capture and seperate Escherichiacoli or Staphylococcus ausreus.
Magnetic nano-platforms can capture, separate and remove bacteria with remarkable results. These multi-functional platforms could greatly aid in clinical diagnosis, environmental testing, or food safety.
Nanoparticles and environmental governance
Due to rapid industry development, large quantities of pollutants end up in the environment. These pollutant have caused numerous environmental problems like soil, water, air, and even health. Their presence has been harmful to our environment as well as human health.
It has been common to use various nanomaterials in environmental pollution disposal over recent years. Nanomaterials, which have many more active sites and a larger surface area than other materials, are considered excellent for the disposal of many pollutants.
There are many forms of environmental nanomaterials, and they are divided into both natural and synthetic. You can find many minerals in nature with nanostructures such as clay minerals, iron oxide nanoparticles and manganese oxid nanoparticles. Clay minerals are among the most used in environmental governance. Synthetic materials are less likely to be contaminated by natural nanomaterials. They also have more variety in structure and performance.
