About 175 thousand #nanotechnology#patent applications have been published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) from 2002 to 2021, which shows an average annual growth rate of 9.8%.
Chinese institutions dominate the fastest-rising ranks in #nano-related output. The country leads the field in the #Nature_Index, with a Share of 4,521.61 in 2021, almost double that of the United States, in second place.
As in previous years, #nanocomposites had the largest number of publications in 2021, while #Mxene had the most significant increase in publishing articles in 2021, with a more than 72% annual growth rate.
For the first time, the number of #graphene patents exceeded #nanotubes in 2021! Carbon nanotubes always had the highest number of patents among different #nanomaterials in previous years. The third place belongs to #quantum_dots.
Carbon #nanotube (CNT) #market size reached USD 876.8 Million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3,027.4 Million in 2030. Increasing application of #CNT in electric vehicles is a major factor driving industry demand.
The global #market of #nanotechnology-enabled #products stood at approximately US$1.6 trillion in 2014. In one estimate, the industry could generate 6 million jobs and account for 10% of global #GDP by 2030.
The #NSF 2022 budget request includes funding for the discovery and development of fundamental knowledge pertaining to new phenomena in the physical, biological, and engineering sciences that occur at the #nanoscale.
StatNano's #policy database contains a total of 180 evaluation reports of #nanotechnology from various countries. USA, Russia, Australia, Iran, and the UK possess the highest number of nanotechnology #evaluation reports.
A new, low-cost wearable #nano_engineered device employs #thermoelectric generators to convert the body’s internal temperature into electricity. Researchers predict devices could appear on the market in five to 10 years.
Researchers created a transistor-like #nanocomputr using a #rapamycin-sensitive domain and a #light-sensitive domain, that can control the function of a particular protein involved in cell movement and #cancer metastasis.
Binding of multidentate ligands to the surface of lead halide #perovskite#nanocrystals suppresses the formation of surface defects that result in halide segregation, yielding materials with efficient and color-stable red #emission.
#Nanobodies have the potential to be developed into treatment and immunity against #SARS_CoV2 and its novel escape mutant. Thanks to their small size they can bind to the virus in more places than regular #antibodies.
