    ABSTRACT: Nanoneurology and nanopsychiatry are today promising, rapidly growing disciplines, and many research efforts have so far been focused in design of nanoparticle-based biosensors and drug delivery systems that would be an addition to conventional diagnostic methods and therapeutic strategies. Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are especially important in these research areas since it has been shown that they can successfully alter physical and chemical properties of many medications, as well as other substances applicable in neuroscience research. This concise article focuses on experiments and theoretical assumptions regarding application of AuNPs in neurosciences performed during the past 10 years in in vitro conditions and animal experimental models. Issues such as AuNP - mediated detection of brain neurotransmitters, and transport through blood brain barrier are also discussed, as well as association of AuNPs with medications commonly applied in modern neurological and psychiatric practice.

    ABSTRACT: Periodontal diseases are characterized by alveolar bone absorption and destruction of periodontal ligament and cementum and are the main causes of tooth loss in adults. This series of diseases is harmful to both human oral and body health. Although periodontitis is under control because of the implementation of conventional treatment modalities, regenerating damaged periodontal tissues remains a major challenge because of the complex periodontium structure. Scientists in this field have recently focused on biomaterials that promote periodontal tissue reconstruction and regeneration. This review updates the knowledge of biomaterials for periodontal regeneration and their roles in clinical application.

    ABSTRACT: Since last few decades, polymer based outdoor insulation materials are being increasingly used in the power industry. Polymeric insulation materials present attractive advantages such as light weight, resistance to vandalism and best performance under contaminated conditions. However, their electrical, mechanical and thermal properties could not meet the requirements of high voltage outdoor insulation applications. These properties are commonly improved by filling the base polymer with huge loadings (< 50 wt.%) of micron sized fillers. This huge filler loading makes the process ability of the polymer composite complex due to substantial rise in the viscosity of the material and outside a certain limit, the plasticity of the product also suffers. These process limitations and the recent failures in the field recommend the necessity for an alternate material with enhanced properties even at lower filler loadings. Recently nanocomposites are emerging as capable alternatives which can present the vital properties at lower filler loadings without sacrificing the plasticity in the end product as well as ease of processing. As the development of polymer nanocomposites for high voltage outdoor insulation applications is still at its immaturity, it is necessary to investigate their preparation and characterization properties desired for outdoor applications and to comprehend the various mechanisms accountable for the unique behavior of the nanocomposites. This paper presents an overview of nanocomposites as outdoor insulation at the present.

    ABSTRACT: Smart biomaterials are designed to act as an 'on-off' switch for various applications from macro- to nanometer scale which self-heals or responds to the changes in the environment when one of its property changes by the external conditions like temperature, light, pressure or electricity. This change is reversible and can be repeated for several times. When used for healthcare, it improves its performances in medical devices thus promoting desired biological responses like healing, tissue growth etc. Smart materials can deliver therapeutics to the designated site of the body. It is a challenging task to sketch out the classification of smart materials due to its different approaches and quantity of publications related to this topic, is almost impossible to provide a comprehensive review. There are various types of smart materials namely piezoelectric materials, shape memory polymers or alloys, temperature responsive polymers, photomechanical materials, self-healing materials, thermoelectric materials etc. The current review has been focused on smart biomaterials primarily on auxetic materials which are automatically adjustable with strength and thickness in response to the applied forces as they have memorial ability to return to its original state on dissipation of the stresses. Here, the main emphasize is on biomedical applications of auxetic materials which comes under the category of 16 smart materials of the twenty first century having a great impact in biomedical area. The information provided through this review may be beneficial for the future development of biomedical devices and their clinical applications consequently improving the quality of patient's life.

    ABSTRACT: The article describes significant role of catalyst in the deposition of various materials on different substrates surface via Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. CVD is a complex process of depositing thin coatings on a substrate surface via chemical reactions of gaseous materials. It is a useful process to produce materials of high purity, density and strength. It has emerged as a novel manufacturing technique in industrial sectors such as semiconductor and ceramic industries. Catalyst Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (CECVD) is an enhancement method, used for the synthesis of nanomaterials on thermally sensitive substrates in the presence of appropriate metal catalysts. Such catalysts not only ensure the deposition to be carried out at considerably low temperature but they also produce films of high purity. The article provides the published data about nanomaterials synthesis by CECVD process. Catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD) is another efficient and low-cost method for the mass production of highly pure carbon nanotubes (CNTs). In this process, CNTs are produced by the catalytic decomposition of hydrocarbon vapors. Cobalt, Iron, Nickel and their alloys are the most widely used catalysts in CNTs production through CVD process. This idea has been explained in detail with appropriate examples from recent literature.

    ABSTRACT: Graphene has attracted much attention in recent years due to its extraordinary electronic, optical, magnetic, thermal, and mechanical properties. Despite continuing theoretical and experimental success, the unique physical properties of graphene remain underused and underappreciated. The key challenge in harnessing of the unique properties of graphene is the difficulty of reliable manipulation of well-dispersed graphene which due to the surface properties of graphene. In this review, the recent developments of surface properties of graphene are summarized, where tailoring of these surface properties via surface treatments and the effects on the graphene-polymer matrix interface is highlighted. Moreover, the surface testing technique is also commented on briefly. We believe that the future prospects of research emphasis on preparation of modified graphene with special surface properties which would lead to better composites taking into account the desired cradle-to-grave lifecycle of reinforced materials with high performance. Finally, we expect that this review can contribute to a better knowledge of the physicochemical surface properties of graphene.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we reviewed the applications of hydrophilic and hydrophobic ionic liquids including their mixtures particularly between ionic liquids and chemical compounds for preparation of advanced polymer blends and composites. In the preceding researches we have found that ionic liquids and their mixtures could be effectively used as environmentally friendly solvent, plasticizer, coupling agent and compatibilizer. These materials have the ability to improve properties of polymer blends and composites that consisted of natural and synthetic polymers. On the other hand, we also included our previous and other studies that consumed the mixture of ionic liquids and chemical compounds for preparation of polymer blends and composites in the form of aerogels, films, composite films and biocomposites.

    ABSTRACT: Kaolins can satisfy the world demand for filler, paper and ceramic industries. If kaolin thermally activated, it converts to a pozzolan material named metakaolin (MK). MK can be used in traditional paste, mortar and concrete to improve their properties. In addition, MK can be used as a source of cementing materials without Portland cement (PC) named geopolymer. This literature presents an overview of the pervious works carried out on the effect of MK on the fresh properties and mechanical strength of traditional cementitious materials based on PC in which MK was used as cement replacement. In addition, the optimum content of MK which exhibited the highest 28 days compressive strength was reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments in many areas of nanotechnology show significant promise in addressing many challenges. Researches and developments have shown that the application of nanotechnology can improve the performance of traditional construction materials, such as concrete. Noteworthy improvements in concrete strength, durability and sustainability are being achieved by using different types of nanoparticles such as nano-TiO2 (NT). This paper presents an overview of the previous works carried out on the effect of NT on some properties as heat of hydration, workability, setting time, chemical shrinkage, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, fire resistance, freeze/thaw resistance, water absorption, chloride penetration and permeability of the traditional plain or blended cement systems. In addition, this survey presents a comparison of some properties of the matrix containing NT versus that containing other nano particles. This overview can be considered as a short guide for Civil Engineer.

    ABSTRACT: This paper explains the method used by researchers to improve Light Emitting Diode (LED) extraction efficiency. It also summarizes the works of different researchers on the improvement in light extraction efficiency (LEE) of an LED. In current practice, a commonality was observed where many researchers tried to improve LEE through the use of micro repeating structures (MRS). MRS comes in the shape of pyramid, lens, cylinder, perforated holes or a combination of a few random shapes. The LEE of an LED could be improved by placing a uniformly aligned or abruptly patterned MRS onto the LED surface in the desired area of projection. This review looks at the possibility of using mesoporous thin film (MTF) with ordered pore to improve LEE due to the presence of uniform MRS (a structure which consists of silica and air array).
