The World’s First Anti-Coronavirus Surgical Mask by Wakamono

The World’s First Anti-Coronavirus Surgical Mask by Wakamono In December 2019, a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was first detected in Wuhan, in China’s Hubei province. On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledged and characterized the condition as a pandemic owing to the rapid spread of the virus across the globe infecting millions of […]

Comparisons of the effectiveness of WAKAMONO Medical Mask and current facemasks in blocking SARS–CoV-2

Comparisons of the effectiveness of WAKAMONO Medical Mask and current facemasks in blocking SARS–CoV-2 WAKAMONO Medical Mask – the antiviral surgical mask The antiviral surgical mask is a single-use, disposable surgical mask for occupational use to cover the nose and mouth of the wearer to protect from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids and particulates […]

Can Nanotechnology and Materials Science Help the Fight against SARS-CoV-2?

Can Nanotechnology and Materials Science Help the Fight against SARS-CoV-2?   Abstract Since 2004, we have been developing nanomaterials with antimicrobial properties, the so-called nano antimicrobials. When the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged, we started investigating new and challenging routes to nano antivirals. The two fields have some important points of contact. We would like […]

Nanoparticles in the clinic

Nanoparticles in the clinic   Abstract Nanoparticle/microparticle‐based drug delivery systems for systemic (i.e., intravenous) applications have significant advantages over their nonformulated and free drug counterparts. For example, nanoparticle systems are capable of delivering therapeutics and treating areas of the body that other delivery systems cannot reach. As such, nanoparticle drug delivery and imaging systems are one […]

Intelligent nanomaterials for medicine: Carrier platforms and targeting strategies in the context of clinical application

Intelligent nanomaterials for medicine: Carrier platforms and targeting strategies in the context of clinical application   Abstract Nanomedical approaches are a major transforming factor in medical diagnosis and therapies. Based on important earlier work in the field of liposomal drug delivery and metallic nanomaterials, the last decade has brought a broad array of new and improved intelligent nanoscale platforms which […]

Nanotechnology in reproductive medicine: Emerging applications of nanomaterials

Nanotechnology in reproductive medicine: Emerging applications of nanomaterials   Abstract In the last decade, nanotechnology has been extensively introduced for biomedical applications, including bio-detection, drug delivery and diagnostic imaging, particularly in the field of cancer diagnostics and treatment. However, there is a growing trend towards the expansion of nanobiotechnological tools in a number of non-cancer applications. In this […]

Nanotechnology Research: Applications in Nutritional Sciences

Nanotechnology Research: Applications in Nutritional Sciences “Nanotechnology” is the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through the manipulation of matter at a length scale of ∼1–100 nm. At such a scale, novel properties and functions occur because of size (1). This emerging field is becoming important in enabling breakthroughs of new and effective tools […]

NANOTECHNOLOGY: A New opportunity in Plant Sciences

NANOTECHNOLOGY: A New opportunity in Plant Sciences Trends The field of nanotechnology has great potential within plant sciences and plant production systems. The agronomic application of nanotechnology has thus far received comparatively little interest relative to the application within human systems. We review the potential applications and future opportunities of nanotechnology in plant sciences, thereby […]

TETRAHYDROCURCUMIN

TETRAHYDROCURCUMIN Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC) is a semi-synthesized product from Curcumin, it exhibits many of the same physiologic and pharmacological activities as curcumin but at higher levels of effectiveness.   In general, THC is an antioxidative substance, anti-inflammatory element and antimicrobial. According to many studies, THC is much more effective than Curcumin in the same purpose of use, […]

CURCUMIN AND NANO CURCUMIN

CURCUMIN and NANO CURCUMIN In the past, Tumeric (Curcuma longa) had been known as popular spice as well as traditional medicine which helps in medical treatments of illnesses such as dermatologic diseases, infection, stress, and depression.     Scientists revealed that Curcumin, a polyphenol and a main major component in turmeric undertakes the ability of […]

WHAT IS NANOTECHNOLOGY?

WHAT IS NANOTECHNOLOGY? Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are the study and application of extremely small things and can be used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering. How it Started The […]

NANOTUBES IN ELECTRONICS

NANOTUBES IN ELECTRONICS Nearly 10 years ago Sumio Iijima, sitting at an electron microscope at the NEC Fundamental Research Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan, first noticed odd nanoscopic threads lying in a smear of soot. Made of pure carbon, as regular and symmetric as crystals, these exquisitely thin, impressively long macromolecules soon became known as nanotubes, […]
