Flame Retardant Breakthrough Is Naturally Derived, Nontoxic

Oct. 5, 2015 — A new flame retardant has been created to replace commercial additives that are often toxic and can accumulate over time in the environment and living animals, including ... read more

Oct. 2, 2015 — A team of researchers has developed an elegant process for coating fragile perovskite layers with graphene for the first time. Subsequent measurements show that the graphene layer is an ideal front ... read more

Oct. 2, 2015 — Novel and scalable technology and production process has been developed combining algal biomass cultivation, harvesting and concentration as well as extraction and fractionation of fatty acids from ... read more

Organics Energize Solar Cell Research

Oct. 1, 2015 — Scientists are using a new supercomputer to advance next-generation solar energy technologies by probing the functional interfaces found in organic and hybrid solar ... read more

Real-Time Analysis of Metabolic Products

Oct. 1, 2015 — A method that, for the first time, makes it possible to measure concentration changes of several hundred metabolic products simultaneously and almost in real time has been developed by researchers. ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — In an effort to help develop a domestic supply of rare earth elements, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute have developed a novel method of chemically separating these materials -- ... read more

The Danish Nitrogen Budget in a Nutshell

Sep. 30, 2015 — To get a clearer overall picture of the sources and sinks of nitrogen, scientists have developed a national nitrogen budget for Denmark for the years 1990 to 2010. The budget shows inputs and outputs ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — Success of the energy turnaround will depend decisively on the extended use of renewable energy sources. However, their efficiency partly is much smaller than that of conventional energy sources. The ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — Chemical molecules strongly interacting with light generally disintegrate very rapidly. In new research, the main mechanism conducive to this destruction has been determined. This knowledge makes it ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — A novel way to count white blood cells without a blood test, simply by applying a small device on the fingertip, is being developed by a team of young bioengineers. The technology, that combines an ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — The oceans seem to produce significantly more isoprene, and consequently affect stronger the climate than previously thought. This emerges from a new study of samples of the surface film in the ... read more

Sep. 30, 2015 — Scientists have been exploring new ways to 'smell' signs of cancer by analyzing what's in patients' breath. In a new study, one team now reports new progress toward this goal. The ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Condensed matter theorists used nearly 10 million Titan core hours to calculate the electronic and magnetic structure of plutonium using a combination of density functional theory calculations and ... read more

Nanomachines: Pirouetting in the Spotlight

Sep. 29, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new class of molecular motors that rotate unidirectionally at speeds of up to 1 kHz when exposed to sunlight at room temperature. This unique combination of features opens ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Researchers have developed tools that could allow neuroscientists to put aside the fiber optic cable, and use a glowing protein from coral as the light source instead. A variant on the optogenetics ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Neurons thrive and grow in a new type of nanowire material developed by researchers. In time, the results might improve both neural and retinal implants, and reduce the risk of them losing their ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Resistive memory cells or ReRAMs for short are deemed to be the new super information-storage solution of the future. At present, two basic concepts are being pursued, which, up to now, were ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Artificial microflowers have been developed that self-assemble in water and mimic the natural blooming process, an important step for advances in frontier-edge ... read more

Researchers Create First Entropy-Stabilized Complex Oxide Alloys

Sep. 29, 2015 — Materials researchers have created the first entropy-stabilized alloy that incorporates oxides -- and demonstrated conclusively that the crystalline structure of the material can be determined by ... read more

Sep. 28, 2015 — Knowing the detailed shape of biomolecules such as proteins is essential for biological studies and drug discovery. Modern structural biology relies on techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance ... read more
