The Incredible Applications of Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology refers to the science and technology that create single-atom and single-molecule substances. It studies the properties, and uses of materials with a structure size ranging between 1 to 100 nanometers. The process of studying the composition of substances has led scientists to discover that many atoms and molecules can be isolated at nanometer scale. This technology is called nanotechnology. Now, I will show you three amazing uses of nanotechnology.
A new nanoparticle type helps people lose weight effectively
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts Institute of Technology collaborated to create a new nanoparticle that can aid in weight loss. This nanoparticle can deliver weight loss pills directly to adipose. In just 25 days, obese rats lost 10% of body weight after being treated with nanoparticles.
Researchers have found that weight-loss drugs work by turning white adipose into brown. This is not a new pill. This new nanoparticle was created by the research team to transport medications and accumulate them in adipose, which avoids side effects on other tissues.
More than a quarter of Americans are overweight, according to statistics. Obesity was responsible for 20% of the 600,000. American cancer deaths last year. There are many people who need to lose weight. You might think that weight loss is just about dieting and exercise. A recent study found that many people have become obese again due to their efforts to lose weight via exercise. Scientists have long sought to combat the obesity gene.
This method of losing fat uses nanoparticles to deliver drugs directly to specific adipose tissues, transform damaged fat cells, then achieve the goal of burning fat. This makes weight loss simple and faster.
Nanoparticles: Make germs "nowhere hide"
Staphylococcus Aureus and Escherichiacoli can be found all over the world. These bacteria are a health problem. Escherichiacoli is capable of causing food poisoning symptoms, including diarrhea, vomiting and fever.
Dong Wenfei's Suzhou Medical Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences team has recently developed a magnetic mesoporous, nanoparticle that can be applied to bacteriostatic substances to make Gram negative Escherichiacoli disappear and Gram positive Staphylococcus ausreus disappear. The surface of nanoparticles is positively charged and that of bacteria is negative charged. The purpose of electrostatic action is to capture and separate Escherichiacoli from Staphylococcusaureus.
Magnetic nano-platforms possess remarkable properties for separating, capturing, and removing bacteria. Multifunctional platforms such as these can be used to greatly improve clinical diagnosis, environmental testing, and food safety.
Application of nanoparticles to environmental governance
The rapid growth of industry has resulted in a lot of pollution being released into the environment. This has created many environmental problems like soil, water and air pollution. These pollutants have been a danger to both the ecological environment as well as human health.
With the rapid development of nanotechnology in recent years, many nanomaterials were widely used for the disposal of environmental pollution. Nanomaterials offer many advantages over traditional materials. They have large specific areas and many active sites and can be used to handle many pollutants.
There are many environmental nanomaterials available at the moment. They can be classified into two types: synthetic and natural. There are many minerals with nanostructures found in nature, such clay minerals and iron or manganese oxide nanoparticles. Clay minerals are most popular in environmental governance. Synthetic nanomaterials have superior performance and composition to natural nanomaterials.
