Nanomedicine to treat diabetic foot

"Nanomedicine" is a new word, but it is heard more and more. It is based on the administration of drugs by very small particles. They act directly on the specific site of the body, hence they are more effective. Using this methodology, Catalan researchers have found a new way to treat ulcers as the so-called "diabetic foot".

Conflicting evidence for ferroelectricity

Researchers from ICMAB (CSIC)/CIBER-BBN, in collaboration with others from the Universities of Liège, Mons, Grenoble-Alpes, Parma, Augsburg, Girona and CNR-IOM (SISSA), have published in the journal Nature (G. D'Avino et al., Nature, 547, E9-E10, 2017) an article where they question the presence of ferroelectricity at room temperature in organic transfer crystals generated by supramolecular techniques, which was previously published in the same journal (Tayi et al, Nature, 488, 485-489, 2012), by a team led by Prof. J. Fraser Stoddart (Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2016) and Prof. Samuel I. Stupp of the University of Northwestern.
