- Can nanoparticles save historic buildings?
- 8 November 2022
Read the latest Nanopinion guest column by Dr. Joanna Dziadkowiec and Prof. Markus Valtiner on how unique properties of nanomaterials could be used to preserve historic buildings.
Nanomaterials and health
Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
Nanomaterials are not only used in consumer products, but also in new and innovative medical treatments. Research has shown that nanoparticles can be used to damage and even destroy cancer cells from within.
