C|H|E|M|3|8|1 COMMUNICATIONS Homogeneous Catalysis of Transition Metals with Nanoparticles Shayan Khan Department of Chemistry, McGill University, 801 Sherbrooke Street West, H3A2K6 Received December 4th, 2015; E-mail [email protected] Abstract – Nanotechnology is a technology, science, and engineering that is conducted by creating and modifying the properties of particles in the range of 1-100 nm. The field has explored the traditional fronts of chemistry and brought them forward to completely new horizons. Homogeneous catalysis is another domain of conventional chemistry that has been explored using transition metal nanoparticles (NPs). Usage of nanoparticles in the...

support the continuation of the US implementation of Nuclear Power

Student Professor Course level Date Support the continuation of the US implementation of Nuclear Power Nuclear power is sourced from the core of atoms of specific elements. The core of an element is also called nucleus, which is held together by a lot of energy. Once the nucleus of an atom has split the energy used to bind it is released and tapped to provide electricity that is used for domestic and commercial purposes. USA is the world number one producer of nuclear energy, with over 100 nuclear reactors power plants across the USA. Based on 2014 statics from the nucleus energy institute, it was noted 19% of total energy spend across America was sourced from nuclear energy that had produced 798...

Nanotechnology and catalysis application

Au Nanoparticles: Catalyzing Cancer Research Au Nanoparticles: Catalyzing Cancer Research Introduction Metallic nanoparticles are quite widely used in different applications including catalysis, drug delivery, and cancerous tumor treatment. Among the noble metals, gold (Au) nanoparticles have exceptional properties to be used for cancer therapy and diagnosis. In this domain, special areas of interest include enhancing molecular therapeutics understanding for cancer because the conventional approaches to solving the problem are inadequate with the lack of specificity of normal and cancerous cells. It also deals with the very domain of severe toxicity and degradation of the quality of life...
