Question The future of cancer diagnosis and treatment through nanomedicine. Is a personalised approach via nanoparticles achievable? Abstract Cancer is one of the major factors contributing to global mortality rates, contributing to one out of six deaths world wide. Traditional methods for diagnosis and treatment are often not precise enough to accurately map out the […]

Carbyne: Officially the strongest material in the world

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Chemistry, Engineering, Nanotechnology, Physics

Scientists in Vienna have successfully created a stable form of carbyne, the world’s strongest material. Carbyne is a linear acetylenic carbon – an infinitely long carbon chain. It can be considered as a one-dimensional allotrope of carbon. Carbyne has a chemical structure with alternating single and triple bonds: (−C≡C−)n. This structure of carbon gives an […]
