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.
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.
