New research reveals plausible degradation pathways of metallic gold into nanoparticles through unforeseen corrosion!
Thermoelectric materials can convert heat into electricity, which gives us the possibility of charging smart devices as we wear them. The latest research is working to make these lightweight and flexible so make it cheaper and easier to power wearable electronic devices.
Researchers at the University of Montpellier develop a diagnostic test for Parkinson’s disease with a glass pipette and electric current that’s quick, accurate and inexpensive.
Carbon dioxide can be converted into useful materials using electrochemistry. This is doubly advantageous, since we can stop carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere and also produce something useful that usually comes from fossil fuels.
The use of molecular docking techniques aid investigation of molecular mechanisms and development of novel antifreeze peptides for applications in the food industry.
A active material for redox flow batteries was synthesized from fungi to create a renewable feedstock.
A hand-held device to detect antibiotic resistant bacteria? Some researchers in Singapore made this idea a reality.
Researchers use shipwreck containing plastic pellets as a natural experiment for plastic degradation.
Researchers explore the best options for extracting nitrogen mustards, a chemical warfare agent, from sand.
The most basic reactions are movements of hydrogens — protons — from one molecule to another. Insuati et. al. explored hydrogen tunneling in a dimer of a common organic molecule to look at the very fundamentals of reactivity.
SARS-CoV-2 attaches to human cells by binding its spike protein to ACE2 receptors — but could other receptors be involved in this process?
New reactions could explain the organic molecules on meteorites may give us a hint as to how organics are created and destroyed on icy moons.
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.
