Paper-Based Supercapacitor Could Power Wearables

Using a simple layer-by-layer coating technique, researchers from the U.S. and Korea have developed a paper-based flexible supercapacitor that could be used to power wearable devices. The device uses cellulose fibers in the paper coated with metallic nanoparticles, creating supercapacitor electrodes with high energy and power densities-and the best performance so far in a textile-based supercapacitor.

Experimental ‘nano-chemo’ particle to treat bladder cancer

Working with mice and rats, researchers have developed a way to successfully deliver nano-sized, platinum-based chemotherapy drugs to treat a form of bladder cancer called nonmuscle-invasive that is found in the lining of the organ and has not invaded deeper into bladder tissue. The tiny drug-infused particles, they say, potentially offer a less toxic clinical alternative to standard chemotherapy delivered intravenously or through a catheter inserted into the bladder.
