NanoHex introduces it's first project NanoVid, 'Discovering Nanofluids'.

Including interviews from project partners Professor Mamoun Muhammed of The Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and Professor Yulong Ding of the University of Leeds and Dispersia Ltd, we discusses the cooling benefits of nanofluids and potential data centre and and automotive applications.

Liquids incorporating nanoparticles could be more effective than standard coolants in applications from locomotives to data centres, electric vehicles to wind turbines. A new European research project aims to develop and produce suitable nanofluids and demonstrate their technical and commercial viability. By Lorna Sharpe

Nigel Wordsworth features NanoHex in the June Isse of Rail Engineer
Nanotechnology sounds like something from science fiction. After all, weren’t Seven of Nine and the Borg created by Nanites? (if you don’t understand, you aren’t a Star Trek fan!) So the thought of nanoengineering is perhaps a bit scary to some.

The Economist talks to NanoHex Partner Mamoun Muhammed from Sweden's
Royal Institute of Technology.

NANO-THIS. Nano-that. Nano-the-other. A nanometre is the name given by the scientific-measurement system to a billionth of a metre, and the idea that making things so small you measure their dimensions in nanometres will unlock advantages denied to larger objects has
been around for well over a decade. Long enough, in other words, for sceptics to wonder when something useful will actually come of it.
