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.
The first complete iodine measurements in the middle atmosphere detected higher levels than expected.
Filters are one of the best ways to trap and remove pollution and small particles from the air. Let’s learn how spiderweb-like networks can be made from polymer into incredible filters.
A research team in Saudi Arabia developed solar panels that clean the sea water whilst producing electricity.
How can researchers eliminate false positives from their research on energy efficient production of ammonia?
Ever wondered how researchers are making solar energy conversion more efficient and affordable? In this article, learn about nanoscale architectural designs assisting in trapping and managing light for better solar efficiency!
We use lithium-ion batteries in our electronics every day, but getting the materials to build them isn’t very environmentally friendly. Let’s learn about a new way to recover one of these materials from burnt plants!
Can we clean oil spills with a block of wood? Researchers have made an oil sponge out of wood for just this purpose.
Modern technology is evolving at a mind-blowing rate, but what should we do with all of the obsolete hardware? Researchers are finding clever ways of recycling the old material – check it out!
