Czech Republic – The E15.cz portal shows that Czech scientists have found a method of cheap production of irradiated nanodynamics and other materials that are useful for very sensitive cancer diagnosis.
A scientific article was published at the Institute of Natural Sciences, Petri Cígler (Department of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry) and Martin Hrubý (Czech Academy of Science's Macromolecule Chemistry).
According to the portal, these nanodynamites are used for diagnostics and nanomedies and are made synthetically graphite at high pressures and temperatures. However, pure nano-diamine can not be used for these purposes. For this reason, the crystal lattice must first be damaged in order to generate special faults that allow for optical reading.
This damage was most often caused by a malfunctioning method – by irradiating the nanodynamite with high ionic particles in particle accelerators. However, the team of Czech scientists has developed a new irradiation method in a nuclear reactor, where neutron-borne atoms break down helium and lithium into light and fast-flying ions.

This type of irradiation has high density and high capacity. Therefore, as the portal suggests, tens of grams of rare nanomaterials may be cheaper and more expensive, almost a thousand times more expensive than those produced by radical accelerators. However, this newly discovered method has not succeeded in creating grid fractions of nanomaterials, but also works with silicon carbide. According to the researchers, this method could work broadly and widely.
