Los Alamos scientists establish brand-new nanotech for biofuel cell layout

Plantations International Information Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists and external collaborators have actually synthesised as well as qualified a brand-new DNA-templated gold nanocluster (AuNC) that might settle a crucial methodological obstacle for efficient biofuel cell design. Ligands, particles that bind to a main metal atom, are essential to develop secure nanoclusters. For this study, the scientists chose single-stranded DNA as the ligand, as DNA is an organic nanoscale product having top affinity for metal cations as well as can be utilized to assembly the collection to various other nanoscale material such as carbon nanotubes. Saumen Chakraborty, a scientist on the project, [...]
