Big step for next-generation fuel cells and electrolyzers

Big step for next-generation fuel cells and electrolyzers | NanoTech | Scoop.it
A big step in the development of next-generation fuel cells and water-alkali electrolyzers has been achieved with the discovery of a new class of bimetallic nanocatalysts that are an order of magnitude higher in activity than the target set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for 2017. The new catalysts, ...

Nanomotors are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells (w/ video)

Nanomotors are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells (w/ video) | NanoTech | Scoop.it
For the first time, a team of chemists and engineers at Penn State University have placed tiny synthetic motors inside live human cells, propelled them with ultrasonic waves and steered them magnetically. It's not exactly 'Fantastic Voyage,' but it's close. The nanomotors, which are rocket-shaped metal ...
