Nanocomposite Science and Technology

The authors provide an in depth therapy of varied facets of nanocomposites. They describe various fabrication tools, like a thermal spray method, or mechanical alloying. Plus, unsurprisingly, tips to use carbon nanotubes as a foundation for composites. one other huge team of equipment revolves round utilizing polymers.

DNA is composed of four 2 0 -deoxynucleotides connected into a polymer via 5 0 –3 0 phosphodiesters, where the sequence of the nucleotides allows the encoding of genetic information.

Nanotubes formed from DNA tile lattices have been used as metallization templates for the formation of conductive nanowires. Utilizing DNA molecules as scaffolds for making functionalized nanowires offers certain advantages such as site-specific alignment and massive, parallel self-assembly for future electronic nanodevices. It has also been pointed out that DNA nanotubes, by analogy with cellular microtubules, might be useful as tracks along which artificial bionanomachines might transport molecular cargo [10, 12].
