Carbyne: Officially the strongest material in the world

Posted on

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 […]

In the musical scale, the approximate ratio of frequencies of successive notes is the twelfth root of 2, which is roughly equal to 1.059463094. The powers of the twelfth root of 2 are rough irrational approximations of the natural musical intervals which are simple rational numbers. Physically, sound waves are vibrations. The higher the amplitude, […]

Nanomedicine – What are the risks?

Posted on

There are many arguments against nanomedicine due to the issue of toxicity. Elements  at a microscopic level have different properties than they have at their standard conditions and every nano particle is completely unique so they each have different properties. These leads to the possibility of the nanoparticles having a serious effect on our health. […]
