A deeper understanding of spintronics enables the generation of new technologies using chiral molecules.
Enzymes and bacteria can be used to degrade plastics into chemicals useful for antibacterial coatings
Avocado peels and uprooted invasive plants can become a source for anti-inflammatories. I’ll toast to that!
Carbon dioxide and biomass combinations can reduce the carbon emissions of polyurethane production, but has negative effects on other environmental parameters.
What technology is currently in use to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere? What technologies lie ahead to help us catch up to our emissions?
Sometimes we see a paper heading and freak out, put the paper away and never return to it. But don’t worry if that’s the case, we’ve got you…
OLEDs are earth-friendly, energy-efficient, all while being ultra-thin, flexible, and lightweight. They are the future of ultra-efficient lighting. Researchers are now coming up with new techniques to fabricate such sustainable and efficient OLEDs.
Antibiotics are all something we have all taken at one point or another – but how many of us wonder about what happens to those antibiotics next? When we stop and think about it, we might start to realise how our actions are unintentionally impacting the environment around us.
Copper concentration in pesticides can be decreased by combining copper with lignin, a waste product from paper manufacturing.
Developing new ways to produce clean alternative energy sources is of paramount importance. Let’s find out how researchers are using reactions within droplets to produce hydrogen gas, a clean energy source.
A new way to have incompatible reactions occur in spatially separate regions of a liquid to create methanol from methane.
The earthy smell of soil originates from the bacteria that live there. But why do they produce this particular scent?
The power of levitation isn’t just for magicians anymore. Learn about a new way of examining water droplets as they float in midair using just sound!
Scientists can now identify plastic in coastal water from pictures taken by European Space Agency (ESA) satellites
Researchers use a naturally crystalline protein to act as a cage to hold another enzyme. This assembly can then be used to turn waste cooking oil into biodiesel.
Lead pipes still exist in older infrastructure, but chemical water treatment can prevent (or increase!) the release of lead from the pipes to drinking water.
Antibiotics are lifesaving, but current practices don’t keep them from accumulating in the environment where they can damage nature and human health. A new antibiotic design aims to solve this problem.
Thermochemical degradation of plant matter can create a great plant fertilizer called hydrochar. But what effect does this hydrochar have on the soil ecosystem?
Archaeologists in Herculaneum, in the south of Italy, discovered a black, glassy material that turned out to be… a human brain.
