Food security

After years of effort

After years of effort, we were able to obtain environmentally friendly nanoscale silver particles in the laboratories of, without the need for silver nitrate. We prepared these particles at high concentrations, reaching up to 2000 parts per million, allowing us to use this silver internally and externally. We hope to continue our work to make the most of this technology in the field of nanoscale silver applications, both nationally and internationally, where it can be utilized in various applications. In the following figure, we present a comparison of the UV absorbance for the nanoscale silver we prepared and the nanoscale silver from Merck, which we consider as a reference for comparison.


The Basics

Let's restart by establishing a fundamental understanding of nanotechnology. At its core, nanotechnology is about controlling and manipulating materials at the nanoscale. This has led to the development of a wide range of applications, many of which have already become part of our daily lives. Nanotechnology impacts industries across the board, from advanced materials to electronics and medicine

Niels Bohr

The person on the left is the Danish theoretical physicist Niels Bohr, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 for his contributions to quantum mechanics. As for the person standing at the blackboard, that is his son, Aage Bohr, who also received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1975 for his work in quantum physics. The young boy in the picture attempting to emulate them is their grandson, Thomas Bohr, currently a physics professor at the Technical University of Denmark. The passion for science is passed down through generations, transcending the boundaries of grandfather, father, and grandson....

Navigating the Nanotechnology Landscape: Bridging Basics to Profound Applications
Nanotechnology and the Fourth Industrial Revolution
In the grand scheme of things, nanotechnology is often considered the foundation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We'll investigate its role in shaping the future of industries, its impact on economic growth, and its relevance on both national and individual levels.

Throughout our exploration of nanotechnology, we aim to bridge the gap between the basics and complexities, providing readers with a comprehensive understanding of this transformative field. Stay tuned as we uncover the incredible potential and opportunities that nanotechnology brings to the table and how it intertwines with the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Together, we'll embark on a journey through the fascinating world of nanotechnology, where innovation knows no bounds.



Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field of science, engineering, and technology that involves manipulating matter at the nanoscale, typically at dimensions less than 100 nanometers "Dimensions ranging from a few atoms to several hundred atoms" At this scale, materials exhibit unique and often improved properties compared to their bulk counterparts, opening up a wide range of applications across various industries. Nanotechnology encompasses the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of nanomaterials, structures, and devices.




What is the medicinal plant Inula Viscosa?

Inula viscosa is a medicinal plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. 

It is also known as sticky fleabane, false yellowhead, or yapışkan andız otu in Turkish .

It is a perennial shrub that grows in the Mediterranean region. 

It has spreading branches, toothed leaves, and small yellow flowers .

Inula viscosa has been used in traditional medicine for various purposes, such as treating cancer, diabetes, hypertension, bronchitis, tuberculosis, wounds, skin diseases, infertility, lung and gastro-duodenal disorders .

Some of its bioactive compounds include isocostic acid, kaempferol, and inulinase. These compounds have shown promising effects in antiproliferative, antioxidant, antibacterial, and enzymatic activities .
