The second issue of Journal Nanotechnology Progress International (JONPI) would come out very soon. Among others, this issue would discuss Nanonergy; solar and fuel cells. There would an excellent review and a ground breaking article on this very crucial field. The abstracts include:

Editorial Review: Nanoenergy; nanosolar cell, Ejembi Onah
Capturing solar light at UV-Visible by organic photovoltaic (polymer based solar cell) at efficiencies of 10-30% is an ideal that is crucial to alternative energy. This type of solar cell would be cheaper, lightweight, flexible, durable, etc as compared to commonly used silicon based solar cells that are expensive, fragile, heavy, etc. The subject of this editorial review is to discuss architectures that can create such efficiencies thereby reducing the cost of energy to about 2 cent per watts instead of $4-$5 per watt by silicon solar cell compared to $1 from fossil.

Nano-composite Polymer Electrolyte Membranes containing Nano-tubular Titania for Fuel Cells, Harinder Missan etal
Nano-composite polymer electrolyte membranes containing in-lab synthesized nano-tubular and particulate titanium dioxide have been developed based on fluoride backbone copolymer (polyvinylidenefluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene) (PVdF-HFP) for fuel cell applications. Nano-tubular titanium dioxide has been synthesized from titanium dioxide particles of varying size using hydrothermal method. The effect of time on the growth of titania nanotubes have been studied and is found to be maximum for 5 days. Nano-tubular structure has been confirmed using XRD and SEM spectroscopy. The developed nano-tubes are further used to synthesize nano-composite polymer electrolyte membranes and various properties have been studied. High ionic conductivity, good mechanical stability, good thermal stability has been observed for these membranes. High conductivity of the order of 10-3 S/cm has been observed for electrolyte membranes containing nano-tubular titania. The conductivity of nanocomposite membranes is almost one order higher than the membranes without any nano-tubular phase.

Educating the next generation of scientists and engineers:
Nanotechnology in the K-16 science curriculum, Aldrin Sweeney

Nanoscience and nanotechnology represent the most rapidly developing areas in contemporary scientific discovery and innovation. Nanoscience involves exploration and understanding of the fundamental behavior of structures having at least one dimension between 1 and 100 nm. Nanotechnology may be defined as the understanding and application of phenomena at the atomic level, leading to the design, construction and utilization of functional structures, again with at least one characteristic dimension measured in nanometers. Continuing advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology will impact all levels of science and engineering education.

JONPI is regarded as the #1 nano journal in scope and coverage with 5 Nobel Laureates as editors among others.
