The Impact of Nanotechnology on Nanoart to Create Artwork: An Analytical Study (Published)

Nanotechnology is the ability to restructure and control matters at molecular levels. They are manipulated or arranged at the nanoscale form to provide better coatings, composites, or additives to create new materials with fundamentally new properties and functions. When the size of a particle changes, it can change colour. That is because, in Nanometer-scale particles, the arrangement of atoms reflects light differently. Gold, for example, can appear dark red or purple; silver can appear yellowish-Coloured. For the principle of teaching decorative design curricula in the technical education department (TED) in the State of Kuwait, the importance of the artistic values of visual art is for monitoring and sampling some of the creative Nano artwork collections. The present research discusses how Nanoparticles are classified on their application, utilising the engineering technology technique in response to Nano artwork visualised with a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and painted for innovative artwork.

Applicability of Carbonized Coconut Shell and Silicon Carbide Nanoparticles in the Synthesis of Hybrid Aluminium Matrix Composites (Published)

The synthesis of agro-waste reinforced metal matrix composites is now very common among researchers because of their cost effectiveness, excellent properties and wide industrial applications. This study synthesized a hybrid aluminium 6061 matrix composite with particulates of silicon carbide, SiCp and carbonized coconut shell, CCSP as reinforcement combined in the ratio 1:1, determined the effect of combining SiCp and CCSp reinforcements of different sizes and weight fractions on the density, hardness, strength properties and microstructure of the developed composite. The hybrid aluminium matrix composites were developed using the stir casting method. Several samples of the composites consisting of AA6061 alloy with 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15% by wt. each of each of the combined CCSp and SiCp with different particle sizes were produced and characterized. Also, mathematical models were proposed for predicticting hardness and tensile strength of the nano-composite and validated by comparison with results of the physical experiment and those of other authors.  The results obtained showed that addition of CCSp and SiCp reinforcement to the alloy decreased its density but increased the hardness and tensile strength of the composite. The nano-particulates reinforced composite presented maximum improvement in hardness and ultimate tensile strength values and decreased density value. The microstructures of the developed composite materials revealed uniform distribution of reinforcing particles in the base matrix and excellent bonding between the base matrix and reinforcements after casting. The proposed models were in excellent agreement with experimental data. The developed composite should be suitable for high strength/light weight applications required in the automobile and aerospace industries.

The Potential Hindrance of Sars-Cov2 Spike Proteins, Prions Misfolded Proteins and other Infected Proteineous Molecule Incorporating Toxic Genomes of Pathogenic Microbes from Gaining Access into the Human Body Cells. Through the Use of a New Biomimetic Nanoparticle Coated Cell Membrane (Published)

This research study paper advocates for a new bio-mimetic nano coated cell membrane, to help in fighting infections and other related diseases in the human body system. As pathogenic microbes, (bacteria, fungi, viruses etc.) have carefully studied and mastered how to trick and evade body immune defense protein and antibodies in the human body system, by generating special protein organelles or manipulating protein molecules to delude the human immune system in other to gain access into the human body cells. Every living organism is composed of four basic components, namely (DNA or RNA or both, proteins, Cells and Cell membrane). This paper reviews these four basic components in their respective sub headings. Also, this article advocates for the use of nanoparticles to create the new cell membrane. The reasons for suggesting nanoparticles is because nanomaterials are dynamic, easily manipulated, and have proofed to be a very effective tool in modern medicine. The research focused more on viruses, as it is the most implicated amongst microbes. The human existence is undergoing significant challenges because of the outcome of the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. Therefore, this research work gives a brief detailed study of the infectious process of coronavirus, and how it uses its spike proteins to bind and infect the human cells. Special attention should be given to the conceptual frame work of this research paper as it holds the potential key on how to hinder viruses especially SARS-COV2. The conceptual framework of this research argues and explains why we need to introduce a new bio-mimetic cell membrane, the limitations of the normal cell membrane in the body, and how this new cell membrane will overcome these shortcomings or limitations and provide a more robust working efficiency, the functions and working mechanism of the new cell membrane, which is impenetrable to viruses and other pathogenic microbes. The theoretical framework of this article is composed of two different theories. The first reviews  the cytokine storm theory and the second reviews the fluid mosaic model and the functions of cell membrane in the body.  The Related empirical Research study reviews the existing work related with the use of nanoparticles in fighting the SARS-CoV-2 CORONAVIRUS, in addition x-raying the progress in    creation of new cells and cell membrane by modern research scientist. Finally, the article highlights potential research recommendations and research for further research study points.
