Israeli scientists, the world's first synthesized artificial gold. Metal 99 samples were obtained in the result of nanotechnology experiments. Laboratory gold has unique properties.
The word "gold" pupils dilate, pulse quickens. This is a unique gold, has inconceivable properties and perfect crystalline structure. However, it can only be seen in the electron microscope at the University of Haifa. The largest crystal has a size of from 50 to 100 MECTRON.
Unique gold ideal structure and properties of rare here, still creating, translating classic Aurum by biomineralization and use of nanoparticles. But Haifa gold still has a secret, one that was hidden until the time in the eyes of sea stars, which are located at the tips of their elegant rays. It is, in fact, round crystals, absorbing, refracting and concentrating are necessary for the life of this creature sunlight. This is the same biomimetics - the science that borrows from nature ideas and solutions.
Practical invisible balls perfect gold. Scientists surprised considering their porous surface. This is not just a noble, rather, vysokopoligonalnye metal will soon work in optical systems, and bioreactors in the complex of physical devices and electronics. But most important of all implants, as gold, moreover, is not rejected by the human body. Its almost perfect crystal structure will be able to deliver in affected areas the same molecular nanolekarstv that will change our understanding of pharmacology.
