Development of natural HEMP fibre sheet mould composites (NF- SMC)
The use of natural fibres as reinforcement in polymer composites has generated much interest in recent years due to environmental legislation and improvements on natural fibre performance and process-abilities. This research ...
Development of low cost ceramic moulding composites as fire barriers
This paper investigates the fire barrier and heat insulation properties of newly developed low cost ceramic mouldable composites using a modern small scale testing method which exposes testing panels to the fire on one ...
Characterisation of copper oxide nanoparticles for antimicrobial applications
Copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles were characterised and investigated with respect to potential antimicrobial applications. It was found that nanoscaled CuO, generated by thermal plasma technology, contains traces of pure ...
Influences of nanoparticle zinc oxide on acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons
The effects of zinc oxide nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) on the properties of voltage-dependent sodium, potassium currents and evoked action potentials were studied in acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons at ...
Action potential changes associated with the inhibitory effects on voltage-gated sodium current of hippocampal CA1 neurons by silver nanoparticles
Nano-sized materials are now being used in medicine, biotechnology, energy, and environmental technology. Although a wide and growing number of applications for nanomaterials exist, there are limited studies available on ...
