Upconversion nanoparticles convert infrared light into ultraviolet and visible light

Researchers from the department of bioengineering at the national university of Singapore’s school of engineering have developed a new technique that can convert infrared light into ultraviolet and visible light using nanoparticles, paving the way for non-invasive treatments for deep tumors, physicists group reported. The technique, which claims to inhibit tumor growth and control gene expression, is the world’s first non-invasive photodynamic therapy to treat deep tumors with nanoparticles. The paper appears in a recent issue of the journal [...]

What is the difference between hexagonal boron nitride and cubic boron nitride

There are four types of boron nitride, hexagonal boron nitride, rhomboid boron nitride, cubic boron nitride and wurtzite boron nitride. It’s easy to confuse hexagonal boron nitride with cubic boron nitride. What’s the difference between hexagonal boron nitride and cubic boron nitride? The difference between hexagonal boron nitride and cubic boron nitride lies in their different physical structures and USES. Boron nitride is a kind of white crystal, stable chemical property, high temperature resistance, melting point up to 3000 degrees Celsius, [...]

Special ceramic materials

Properties of special ceramic materials are determined by two factors. First, the structure of the material, the main bonding properties, the crystal structure. They determine the properties of ceramic materials, such as high temperature resistance, semiconductor and insulation. Secondly, microstructure, including distribution, grain size, shape, pore size distribution, impurities, defects, etc. Ordinary ceramics with clay, feldspar, quartz as raw materials, made by preparation, sintering. This kind of ceramic is hard, no oxidation rust, corrosion resistance, non-conductive, high temperature resistance, [...]

Industrial use of vanadium

Add a few percent of vanadium in steel, can make the elasticity of steel, strength increase, anti – wear and anti – crack very good, both high temperature resistance and anti – cold, no wonder in the automobile, aviation, railway, electronic technology, defense industry and other sectors, everywhere can be seen to trace vanadium. In addition, vanadium oxide has become one of the best catalysts in the chemical industry, including “chemical bread” Mainly used in the manufacture of high-speed cutting [...]

Research on flame retardant nano magnesium hydroxide process

China’s plastic flame retardant material is mainly based on decabromodiphenyl ether, but decabromodiphenyl ether in combustion will produce toxic carcinogenic polybrominated dibenzofuran and other substances, and make it some countries to resist the use of. Therefore, flame-retardant materials also develop towards the direction of high efficiency, low toxicity and low smoke. It is necessary to develop nontoxic flame retardant with excellent performance. Inorganic materials used as flame retardants include Mg(OH)2, AL(OH)3, Sb2O3, etc. These inorganic flame retardants not only [...]

The difference between industrial grade lithium carbonate and battery grade lithium carbonate
