For its proponents, transhumanism – the idea of using technology to redesign humans beyond our biology – is just common sense. Who doesn't want to live a healthier, happier and wealthier life? And wouldn't it be great to live such an “enhanced” life indefinitely? For nearly as long as we have written record, humans have rebelled at the limits of the human condition but, with the development of modern science and technology, we have become increasingly able to overcome what once seemed like absolute limits.
Dr Nupur Bahadur, Assistant Professor at Amity Institute of Nanotechnology has developed this treatment process for decolorization and photocatalytic removal of organic pollutants and dyes present in real effluent of textile and dyeing industry. Amity Institute of Nanotechnology has developed a waste water treatment technology to test and treat waste water generated from textile and dyeing industry.
The handedness of individual chiral nanoparticles made of metallic dumbbells can be determined by their optical properties alone. So say researchers in Texas in the US and Donostia-San Sebastian in Spain, whose new work could help in the development of highly efficient miniaturized nanoscale sensors for studying the structure of chiral molecules and biomolecules like proteins.
