Graphene for Healthcare


A new report published by Del Stark Technology Solutions and JE Science reviews potential applications of graphene to healthcare, including drug delivery, tissue engineering, cancer treatments and bio-sensing. The report highlights some of the latest research taking place around the globe (a review of 107 journal papers) and comments on the patent landscape (86 separate patent applications are profiled).

 

 

The report also presents views from experts regarding graphene’s future place in the healthcare market and tackles questions such as:

- How close are we to these applications being realized?

- In terms of biocompatibility, what should be considered for clinical use and patient care?

- Will graphene-based devices and therapies outperform those currently on the market?

- Can healthcare companies take advantage of graphene just now?

- What else should companies take into account when considering graphene for healthcare applications?

About the authors: Del Stark Technology Solutions is a nanotechnology consultancy and JE Science provides expert written content for science and technology companies and organizations. They have recently joined forces to produce and publish a series of authoritative technology briefings on the nanotechnology sector, containing up-to-date information on research, patents and business activity.

Graphene: Graphene has been heralded “a wonder material” that has the potential to revolutionise many different technologies including electronics, batteries and solar cells. Articles appear in the press on a daily basis showcasing advanced products based on graphene, such as flexible mobile communication devices and next-generation coatings and printing inks. Nanotechnology experts believe that companies should be looking at graphene and identifying applications that will create future value. Nevertheless, despite all the attention in the media and recent Government funding, not much consideration has so far not been afforded graphene’s impact on the healthcare industry. That is until now: order a copy of the Graphene for Healthcare Report and learn about these advancing business opportunities.

 

Recycling Nanomaterials - Recovery, Life Cycle Analysis and transforming waste into high-value applications


 

This report highlights recent academic research papers published in 2013 which could be of interest to companies interested in developing new technologies for the recycling of nanomaterials. The report also focuses on aspects of recovery, life cycle analysis and transforming waste into high-value applications which have appeared in 2013. A patent search was conducted to determine what research is being commercialised and what applications are being considered in industry. Experts were asked for their views on the commercial viability of recycling and recovery of nanomaterials.

It is reasonable to extrapolate that globally, many nano enable products are entering the marketplace, being bought and sold by companies and the general public and then, at the end of their use, these products need to be recycled. The question posed is whether there is scope to recover/recycle the nanomaterials embedded in these products and transforming waste into high-value applications giving some companies a new business opportunity and new income streams.

Can materials such as TiO2, ZnO, Ag, CNTs, Fe2O3 be recovered from products at the end of their useful life? Also, what about graphene and two-dimensional materials such as molybdenum disulfide and silicence? This is of particular interest as the Graphene Flagship – one of Europe’s first ten-year, 1,000 million Euro flagships in Future and Emerging Technologies was recently launched.

Can waste be a valuable feedstock for future nanomaterial development?

To further investigate the notion that nanomaterials can be recycled and waste can be transformed into high-value applications, academic, industrial and waste management experts were asked the following questions:

  • In terms of Life Cycle and aging – what should be considered for Recycling and Recovery?
  • Is the recovery/recycling of nanomaterials and NPs from nanocomposites / waste commercially viable?
  • Can companies take advantage of this process for improving products and products?
  • What else should companies take into account when transforming waste into high-value applications?

Also, key government, legislative and trade organisations were asked for position statements on recycling/recovery.

Molybdenum Disulfide – an inorganic analogue of Graphene and other interesting inorganic nanomaterials for the future


 

The technology scouting services arm of Del Stark Technology Solutions has published a new technology briefing on Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2), which can be described as an inorganic analogue of Graphene.  Molybdenum Disulfide has demonstrated exciting properties including a low coefficient of friction, robustness and a direct electronic bandgap.  This has excited the research community and industry as future electronic circuits and components could be made from MoS2.  


Why is this of interest? Graphene is currently grabbing the headlines and is the topic of many papers and patents including composite materials, conductive and transparent coatings and touch screen displays, but Graphene needs to be modified in order to create a bandgap and MoS2 exhibits a bandgap naturally.    Molybdenum disulfide has been used for many years as an industrial lubricant and many scientists believe it can be used as a 2-D platform for electronic devices.  MoS2 could radically impact the electronics industry and its growing area of research and product development in producing the next generation of transistors.  


The report highlights academic research published in 2012 that could be of interest to companies developing new technologies that involve inorganic nanomaterials.  The report also highlights companies and research organisations that are patenting.

Silicene, Graphyne, Graphdiyne and Graphane - a Technology Briefing and Scouting Report that looks beyond Graphene


 

The technology scouting services arm of Del Stark Technology Solutions has published a new technology briefing on Silicene, Graphyne, Graphdiyne and Graphane to look at materials beyond Graphene.  This 106 page report provides access to news, patents, academic research findings and also highlights universities and institutes working in the field, as well as, companies and research organisations that are patenting.

Silicene has been described as the graphene equivalent for silicon and has attracted tremendous attention as it could have a wider impact on the future developments in expanding areas of spintronics and nanoelectronics.

Silicene has a tunable band gap and displays interesting physical, magnetic, and electronic properties and structurally it has been described as a honeycomb configuration. These features have been highly contrasted in the literature against graphene, demonstrating that silicene has a richer structure. This structure can be used for functionalisation and developing future electronics and electro-magnetic correlated devices. The possible compatibility of silicene with current silicon-based micro-/nano technology will be of huge industrial interest.

Some expert views from the report:

“Silicene is one of hot materials and promising as a material used for device applications.” - Noriaki Takagi, Department of Advanced Materials Science Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo

 

“Silicene is expected to enter industry in a big way because the Silicon technology is very well developed and much of that may be used to develop Silicene based electronics.” - Dr.Gautam Mukhopadhyay, Institute Chair Professor in Physics, Physics Department, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay,

 

The report also looks at Graphyne, Graphdiyne and Graphane.
