Exploring Nanotechnology’s Daily Applications

Nanoparticles are, by definition, tiny: Collections of molecules or even just atoms, less than 100 nm wide – smaller than 1/100th the size of a grain of sand. These nanoparticles offer a surprising range of properties that can be different from larger quantities of the same substance – typically enhanced strength, chemical reactivity, or electrical conductivity.

The public may perceive nanotechnology as a new field, but there are many examples of established uses. For example, diagnostic immunoassays using gold nanoparticles have been available since the 1960s.1 Many nanotechnology products mimic naturally occurring biological processes or structures, which makes sense when you consider that evolution has had a 3 billion-year head start on humans for designing and testing manipulations at nanoscale. During the past 30 years,  however, increased interest and funding in nanotechnology has led to rapid developments in all areas of science and engineering, including chemistry, materials, energy, medicine, biotechnology, agriculture, food, electronic devices, and consumer products.2

Nanospheres provide an important pathway for drug and gene delivery into tumors and as contrast agents in imaging.

The average person already encounters nanotechnology in a range of everyday consumer products – nanoparticles of silver are used to deliver antimicrobial properties in hand washes, bandages, and socks, and zinc or titanium nanoparticles are the active UV-protective elements in modern sunscreens.3 The contents of your bathroom cabinet may contain micellar or liposomal products that use nanospheres to trap dirt or deliver medicines or skin care. Carbon nanotubes are one hundred times stronger than steel and are lighter, making them ideal for sports equipment such as bikes or tennis racket.3 The average office worker has improved display screens on desktops, portable and handheld electronic devices, and memory chips with increased density thanks to unseen nanotechnology. Those lucky enough to have an office in a glass tower may enjoy a view out through a self-cleaning window, and in their breaks enjoy a super-fizzy drink from a nanocomposite plastic bottle, designed to stop carbonated beverages from going flat. And no need to worry if they spill it on their suit because it’s probably coated with nanoparticles of silica to make it water and stain repellent.

For the librarian, nanotechnology presents exciting possibilities for information storage, in a branch of nanotechnology that goes way beyond microprocessors and physical storage devices. Researchers are looking at ways to use DNA to store information, in a process called Nuclear Acid Memory (NAM).4 Recent breakthroughs saw the storage and retrieval of archival-quality versions of music and a short GIF in DNA form. This development is incredible when you consider that, in the right conditions, DNA will keep for thousands of years and takes up very little space.4

As with any new scientific developments, nanotechnology is not without concerns, with key issues being health, safety, and environmental aspects.2 Sharing research and data in nano fields will help to further our understanding and advancement.

But if we get that right, where can this tech take us?

In 2010, researchers at the University of Manchester in the UK received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on graphene – a sheet of carbon just one atom thick, which they first isolated six years previously.5 Graphene is the first two-dimensional material. But it is also the strongest and most conductive material known to man. Some experts predict that applications of graphene could have an impact on the scale last seen with the Industrial Revolution. 5 That seems like something worth watching quite closely.

The Science Behind Cephalopods

The cephalopod family includes squid, cuttlefish, and the octopus – a group of exclusively marine animals with a prominent head and a set of arms. These intelligent and complex creatures have fascinated biologists for years, but now they are coming to the attention of the tech industry, thanks to some of their remarkable abilities – most notably the ability to change color.

Color changes are achieved by a combination of leucophores, iridophores, and chromatophores on the skin;1,2 the first two bodies act to scatter and reflect light, and the third can contract or expand to expose or cover pigment on the skin’s surface. Uniquely, cephalopods can also alter the physical form and shape of their skin,1 resulting in a sophisticated three-dimensional display of camouflage or courtship rituals. Also, some types of squid possess a structure on their underside called the light organ that houses luminous bacteria and a stack of tiny reflecting plates that control the luminescence, allowing the squid to manipulate the intensity to match any light coming from above, thus masking the creature from potential predators. Any of one of these adaptations alone would be a marvel, but deployed together; they allow the cephalopods to be shape-shifters – able to blend almost perfectly into their environment – both physically and temporally.

Octopuses have an amazing ability to blend with their environment. This octopus (Octopus cyanea) has the ability to change from blue to brown in a coral garden. It can also change the pattern and texture of its skin.

Wearable color- and shape-changing technology have clear applications for the military, but it could also be used in the leisure industry, and may even provide health benefits by allowing the wearer to regulate their thermal comfort or by giving direct continuous monitoring of vital signs.1 Many cephalopods also can squirt ink, a form of almost pure melanin (composed of polymerized networks of 5,6-dihydroxyindole).2 For many years, it was assumed that melanin was also involved in skin pigmentation, but recent research in cuttlefish has discovered that the pigments in the chromatophore are reflectin and crystallin proteins, and ongoing research in squid suggests there may also be ommochromes involved – a set of redox-active substituted phenoxazinones derived from tryptophan.3,4

We know that coloration changes in cephalopods are controlled by both chemical and mechanical stimuli,1 and this helps to guide how we approach our cephalopod-inspired tech. By using reflectin on a graphene sheet, researchers have been able to create color-changing films that respond to pH and artificial elastomers that respond to electrical stimuli. These pave the way for true camouflage fabrics, especially when different films are stacked to give different optical functionality, with clusters of pixels able to generate a range of colors.1 The three-dimensional plasticity of cephalopod skin is a source of inspiration for designers of systems that need reconfigurable shapes and textures.1,5 Research is ongoing to develop these futuristic materials. Reflectin has also been investigated in the field of bioelectronics, where a project is underway to develop devices and materials that are compatible with biological systems – an idea that could revolutionize medicine.6

Besides their unique skin properties, cephalopods also offer up new worlds in pharmaceutical research. In particular, the venom from some species represents a largely unexplored source of novel proteins, some of which may be derived from endosymbiotic bacteria.7 This is the case with tetrodotoxin, a potent neurotoxin found in the saliva of the southern blue-ringed octopus.7 This sodium channel blocker is currently undergoing clinical trials for cancer-associated pain treatment.8

Given that octopus and squid are a traditional part of the human diet in many parts of the world, looking at these creatures for new technological and medical advancements may mean a new lease of life for by-products from the food industry.
