Chitosan-based nanoparticles for controlled release of Bromacil
Herbicides are the most widely used method for weed control. However, the agricultural industry worldwide is facing several challenges including the environmental pollution problems (soils and water) caused by the unsuitable ...
Synthesis, characterization and antibacterial properties of pure and Li doped ZnO nanoparticles for alternative water disinfection methods
As a consequence of growing water demand and pollution, water borne disease outbreaks are on the rise and current disinfection methods have shown to be ineffective in inactivating all pathogens during water treatment. Zinc ...
Synthesis and characterization of flexible zinc oxide-based composites
An organic flexible optoelectronic device (f-OLED), composed by a conductive polymeric substrate (PEDOT:PSS) and a composition-controlled semiconductive layer of ZnO was designed based on the industry’s requirements of ...
Composition- and size-controlled synthesis of Mn-Zn ferrite nanocrystals for potential magnetocaloric applications
There are presently many applications using nanofluids in thermal engineering. Some examples include the use of nanoparticles in conventional coolants to enhance heat transfer rate by increasing its thermal conductivity. ...
