How about BioNanoelectronics and Artificial Intelligence?

http://bionano.univalle.edu.co/english/english_index.html

BIONANOELECTRONICS

The Bionanoelectronics is considered as the biological or biomedical applications of the Nanoelectronics (science and technology of electronic devices and systems at nanometric scale, less than 100nm). Then, in order to achieve the above applications, the Bionanoelectronics is an interdisciplinary research and development field that includes principles and fundaments of chemistry, biology, physics, medicine, electronics, materials science and nanotechnology.

In this context, the Bionanoelectronics will affect the biomedical industry through the development of advanced bioMEMS-bioNEMS, biomedical nanodevices, biosensors, biochips, bio-artificial organs and bionanorobots. Therefore, the Bionanoelectronics is a technology addressed to improve the quality of human life, that is, the Bionanoelectronics will be used in areas as diverse as gene therapy, personalized and targeted drug delivery, treatments for degenerative diseases, regenerative medicine, novel analytical and diagnostic techniques and novel drug discovery techniques, which will generate the next life sciences technology, the Bionanomedicine.

Also, the Bionanoelectronics will affect other industries, in special the electronics and computing industries through the development of biomaterial-based electronic circuitry, which will generate the next generation of computers, that is, the Bionanocomputers or Nanobiocomputers.

Abstract
Environmental issues in polymer processing can be related to materials/energy balances in terms of volatile emissions generated during manufacture and selection of appropriate material/energy recovery options for the manufactured product. This review presents information related to the types of volatiles emanating during the processing of commodity thermoplastics and reinforced thermosets along with analytical methods for their measurement. The identification of volatiles and the development of analytic techniques for measuring their concentration in the workplace are of paramount importance to establish or revise threshold limit values that would minimize exposure to hazardous chemical substances. With respect to material/energy recovery options applicable to fabricated polymer-based parts, this article reviews methodologies based on life-cycle analysis principles to establish an approximate hierarchy of energy recovery potential. It is shown that the overall energy requirements for most secondary (melt reprocessing) or tertiary (chemical) recycling alternatives are well below those of landfilling (highest energy consumption) and for some alternatives closer to those of reuse (lowest energy consumption). © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

The PHB biodegradable plastic that I am producing in my technology is really an excellent material for nanotechnology development, for it to be more useful in its many biomedical applications including controlled drug release and implantable devices. Hence, I am now on a tight pursuit of getting angel investors so that I could roll the project on and produce the plastic. You are in nanotech as well, so may I encourage you to be with me? Would you?

Regarding the PAASE membership, last year I attended it at Cebu at University of San Carlos, also I did a lecture on bioinformatics after the PAASE to the USC, together with the other PAASE members. Maam Gie and Seville (my two Advisees in my PhD program) already asked me to be a member. But I have not really followed it up nor they remember about it. It is a good thing you asked about it, hence I am sending you my updated CV for your perusal. Thanks and hope to see you here in the Philippines.

A PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION ON THE SYNTHESIS OF CARBON NANOTUBES ON GOLD-COATED SILICON SUBSTRATE
BY CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are new technological materials that have numerous novel and useful properties. They are now considered as the strongest engineered material in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Their unique structural and electronic properties have generated great interest for use in a broad range of potential nanodevices. CNT is a cylindrical carbon molecule that is a member of the fullerene structural family which comes in a variety of diameter and length. Depending on the growth process, the length can be approximately 100 nanometers to several microns and the diameter varies from 1 to 20 nanometers. There are primarily three main methods to grow carbon nanotubes: arc discharge, laser ablation and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The first two methods are high temperature processes (2500oC) that yield high quality but poor density of carbon nanotubes while the third method is considered the cheapest way to grow CNTs and the highest yield. Several researchers nowadays focused on developing CNT of various morphologies by searching for new catalyst, substrates and carbon sources for CVD. In this study, using gold (Au) as catalyst will be a new parameter in CNT growth because most authors use iron (Fe), nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co).

The aim of this research was to conduct a preliminary investigation on the synthesis of carbon nanotube by CVD using Au-coated silicon (Si) wafer substrate. This involved the flowing of hydrocarbon precursor such as ethanol or methanol into a heated CVD chamber containing Au-coated and etched Si-substrates. The heating/annealing conditions and etching parameters on the substrates were varied. The quality of CNTs produced from this technique was characterized by optical microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy and Energy Dispersive X-ray.

Based from the results of the study, synthesis of carbon nanotubes by CVD using gold as a catalyst was possible using hydrocarbons such as methanol and ethanol. Processing parameters such as 240 seconds etching time of the Au-coated Si substrate and annealing at 750oC for 30 minutes resulted to CNT growth during CVD. Surface morphology confirmed that methanol was a better precursor because it had produced long CNTs than ethanol. Likewise, EDX analysis showed that higher carbon atom percentage in carbon nanotubes were obtained using methanol than ethanol. But besides carbon nanotubes, other fiber-like structures of micron-sized were found during the SEM analysis. A phenomenological behavior of CNT growth using Au-coated Si wafer substrate was also developed. It illustrated that CNT growth was propagated when the dissolved carbon from the dissociation of the hydrocarbon precursor precipitates out the base of the gold tip pushing itself horizontally resulting to a tubular carbon nanotube.

ABSTRACT

This study aims to investigate the electrical, chemical and thermo-mechanical properties of recycled polycarbonate/organo-montmorillonite nanocomposites at various clay loadings. Polycarbonate from post-consumer wastes was recovered by mechanical abrasion process and chemical stripping. Nanoclays, such as organo-montmorillonites (organoclays), are layered silicate clays that were modified with quaternary alkylammonium ions to make it hydrophobic and oleophilic. Formulations of 1, 3, 5 and 10% clay loading in the recycled polycarbonate (RPC) matrix were conducted. Imported organoclay (FLUKA) was used in comparison with the local organoclay (o-MMT). The two roll mill was used to mix and anneal the RPC with clay and the nanocomposites were formed into square plates using the compression molding machine. The developed RPC/o-mmt nanocomposite systems were characterized using the Thermo-Mechanical Analyzer (TMA), Dynamic-Mechanical Analyzer (DMA), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR), high potential tester, and insulation tester.

The changes in the absorption bands of the FTIR spectra of the nanocomposite systems confirmed the miscibility of the nanofiller in the RPC matrix. Electrical characterization of the local RPC/o-MMT systems showed an increase in electrical resistance with the increase in clay loading. The size of the particles, filler concentration, processing technique, and filler/matrix interactions were significant factors affecting the electrical resistance. The dielectric strength decreases with the increase in clay loading. This indicates that the RPC with dispersed clay in the polymer matrix had terminated the regular long chain of the polymer, and so became random and shorter. The glass transition temperature decreases with the increase in o-MMT loading. This behavior indicates that the o-MMT nanofiller may have acted as a plasticizer to the polycarbonate. Dimensional stability, thermal stability and modulus of elasticity were improved at higher clay loadings. The local o-MMT showed better compability with the RPC matrix than with FLUKA. The development of this type of nanocomposites will help lower formulation cost of engineering thermoplastics and enhance the functional properties of recycled polycarbonate for the growing plastics industry.
