Filters made of graphene - the thinnest feasible membrane

Filters made of graphene - the thinnest feasible membrane | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Researchers led by Hyung Gyu Park of the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich have produced a stable porous membrane that is thinner than a nanometer. This is a 100,000 times thinner than the diameter of a human hair. The membrane consists of two layers of the much exalted graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb-like film made of carbon atoms, through which the researchers shot tiny pores of a precisely defined size. The membrane can thus permeate tiny molecules. Larger molecules or particles, on the other hand, can pass only slowly or not at all...more...

Making graphene work for real-world devices

Making graphene work for real-world devices | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and next-generation energy devices.
One particular challenge concerns the question of how graphene sheets can be utilized in real devices...more...

Innovation: How Disciplined Is Your Company? | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

The Innovation Enterprise. Most manufacturers would tell you that innovation is one of their most important activities. Without innovation, growth is stymied, the future becomes uncertain. Yet, according to a new Manufacturing Leadership Council poll on innovation- primarily focused on small and medium-size companies-most manufacturers approach innovation less than rigorously and sometimes with a surprising informality.

Nanoparticle-delivered local anesthesia

A technique using anesthesia-containing nanoparticles -- drawn to the targeted area of the body by magnets -- could one day provide a useful alternative to nerve block for local anesthesia in patients, suggests an experimental study in the April issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia ("Nanoanesthesia: A Novel, Intravenous Approach to Ankle Block in the Rat by Magnet-Directed Concentration of Ropivacaine-Associated Nanoparticles"), official journal of the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS).
"We have established proof of principle that it is possible to produce ankle block in the rat by intravenous injection of magnetic nanoparticles associated with ropivacaine and magnet application at the ankle," write Dr Venkat R.R. Mantha and colleagues of University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. With further study, the nano-anesthesia technique might allow more potent doses of local anesthetics to be delivered safely during local anesthesia in humans...more

Graphene - The World's Thinnest Material | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

The two dimensional material was first isolated by Professor Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov at The University of Manchester. It is the thinnest material known and yet also one of the strongest. It conducts electricity as efficiently as copper and outperforms all other materials as a conductor of heat. Graphene is almost completely transparent, yet so dense that even the smallest atom helium cannot pass through it.
