Electricity allows fine reaction control in molecular recognition events
How can we use mass spectrometry to predict if grapes exposed to wildfires will produce smoke-tainted wine? This article explores detection of various chemicals associated with low-quality wine.
Fungus, as it turns out, can be beneficial, and scientists have found that fungus in the gut could improve cognition and so, might help as a treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists showcase a new, large-scale method to convert harmful greenhouse gases into commercially lucrative chemicals.
Research in wearable electronics brings us closer to personalized medicine with plasmonic materials.
Development of novel microchamber with graphene-based electrochemical sensor provides a portable and commercial method for sulfite quantification in wine.
One of the most abundant South Asian and Sub-Saharan African legumes is the hardy, nutritional grass pea. However, the vegetable naturally produces a paralyzing neurotoxin, and the exact mechanism has long eluded scientists – until now.
The enzyme responsible for photosynthesis is over 2.5 billion years old. How has billions of years of evolution changed its efficiency? Scientists resurrected an ancient version of the enzyme to find out.
With the continued prevalence of Covid-19, development of new and improved detection methods of the virus is an important step forward in simplifying diagnosis and treatment. This article explores the use of DNA aptamers as a viral detection tool.
Development of a new, non-invasive and topical sampling method uses low molecular weight, skin cancer biomarkers for better detection for early stages of skin cancer diagnostics.
A deeper understanding of spintronics enables the generation of new technologies using chiral molecules.

Earth’s atmosphere didn’t see oxygen until over 2 billion years ago. New techniques help confirm an old hypothesis about exactly when the planet’s oxygenation happened.
An overwhelming majority of scientists are in agreement—and that never happens—something must change before we reach the so-called “point-of-no-return”. The onset of the industrial era (and the associated benefits) encouraged a system that pollutes our environment in search of the largest possible profits. More recently, our voices have gotten louder, and large groups of society have dedicated themselves to uncovering the solutions to these problems. Perhaps, in this regard, Mother Nature still has lessons to offer.
Some pesticides function similarly to the nerve agent sarin, and their ubiquitous use makes them a constant health hazard if unmonitored. Chemists designed a dual-microbe sensor to selectively and sensitively determine when the hazardous chemicals are nearby.
Development of novel fluorogenic probes provide valuable insights regarding the polarity of cancer cell membranes.
Many students learn about how to use the persnickety micropipette while performing other,critical reactions. However instructors at Montmouth College designed a unique teaching exercise to instill confident micropipette usage using color wheels.
Treating those with active COVID-19 requires antiviral drugs such as molnupriavir. However, the drug’s synthesis is lengthy and low yield – can enzymes be used to optimize both time and the end result?
Carbon isotopes measured by the Mars rover Curiosity reveal that the ancient organic carbon found in Martian rocks originates from three possible sources: Galactic dust storms, solar irradiation or microbial methane.
How can we use compounds produced by cannabis as tools against COVID-19? This article discusses the identification of three cannabinoids which decrease the infection rate of SARS-CoV-2.
