Mimosa pudica Flower Extract Mediated Green Synthesis of Gold Nanoparticles

Krishnaprabha Mapala and Manjunatha Pattabi
The use of Mimosa pudica flower extract in the synthesis of highly stable gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) is reported here. On treatment of aqueous chloroauric acid with crude aqueous extract of Mimosa pudica flowers, rapid reduction of Au3+ ions at room temperature was observed without the need of any additional reducing or stabilizing agent.

Magnetophoresis of Superparamagnetic Nanoparticles Applied to the Extraction of Lanthanide Ions in the Presence of Magnetic Field

Fernando Menegatti de Melo, Sabrina da Nobrega Almeida, Antonio Domingues dos Santos and Henrique Eisi Toma
Magnetic migration (magnetophoresis) and extraction of Dy3+ ions by magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles functionalized with diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (MagNP@DTPA) were probed, using an analytical balance and an external weighing device comprising a miniature neodymium (Nd2Fe14B) magnet and a Lego® system.

Adsorptive Removal of Phenol from Aqueous Solution by Using Carbon Nanotubes and Magnetic BioChar

N. M. Mubarak, N. Sazila, Sabzoi Nizamuddin, E.C. Abdullah and JN Sahu
The effectiveness of phenol removal from aqueous solution by different adsorbents was experimentally studied. Results revealed that the pH and adsorbent dosage to be the main factors in this adsorption study. It is found that functionalized carbon nanotubes (CNTs) give the highest removal of 88% followed by 82.3% and 82.2% for magnetic biochar and raw CNTs respectively.

Magnetotactic Bacteria – Trends for the Future Research

Denis Grouzdev, Veronika Koziaeva, Boris Kuznetsov and Konstantin Skryabin
Magnetotactic bacteria (MTB) are interesting for their ability to produce size-narrowed and chemically pure magnetic nanoparticles, which are the promising new nanomaterial useful for a number of biotech applications – drug delivery, cell sorting, DNA/RNA extraction, etc. The only difficulty hampering the practical recruitment of bacterial magnetosomes is the low level of their production by bacteria.

Hydrolysis of Hydrazine Borane for Chemical Hydrogen Storage by Highly Efficient Poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone)-protected Rhodium Nanoparticles

Bayram Abay, Nihat Tunç and Murat Rakap
The employment of poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone)-protected rhodium nanoparticles (3.8 ± 1.2 nm) as highly efficient catalysts in the hydrolysis of hydrazine borane for hydrogen generation is reported. The catalyst is prepared by reduction of rhodium metal ion in ethanol/water mixture by an alcohol reduction method and characterized by TEM analysis, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

Scope, Aims & Topics

NanoWorld Journal (NWJ) is a quarterly peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, reviews, letters to editor, and technical notes on the solutions through Nanotechnology and Nanosciences to the problems facing the world in the key sectors of energy, environment, space, hardware and cancer in order to achieve significant progress with the involvement of overall society in a dedicated sixth section of the Journal. The scope of the NWJ is centered in the key sectors from which depends human progress and survival, with the aims to enhance worldwide cooperation in Research and Development. With the NWJ we aim to provide the highest coverage to these fields in order to achieve the scope to help to overcome problems too frequently underestimated and growing from energy to environment and natural disasters, from cancer to hardware and space.

NanoWorld Journal Review Process

Corresponding authors submitting the manuscript must explicitly indicate the specific area of expertise among the five ones published on our website under the Editorial Board by each of the five Associate Editors (AE) and if none of the five Associates is appropriate the author must indicate both under which one of six sectors of NWJ (Energy, Environment, Space, Hardware, Cancer, Science and Society as indicated on Scope and Aims) is falling his/her paper and under which one of the remaining Editorial Board Members (EBM) is falling the expertise for his/her submission. If none of the Editorial Board is indicated, the paper will be submitted by the Managing Editor (ME) to the Editor in Chief (EIC) along with a ranking based on four indicators, namely the number of SCI best articles (10 over 10 deciles) as first author and as last author, the total H-index and the total number of Science Citation Index publications regardless the number of deciles, whereby if this last indicator is zero the paper will not be considered for further review.
