Using Recovery Methods, Oil Production in Mexico Would Increase by Nearly 800 Thousand Barrels Per Day

May 25, 2015 — Mexico has a wide range of oil fields; however, most of them are mature which makes it difficult to maintain oil production. Given this, advanced and improved recovery methods should be implemented ... read more

On-Demand X-Rays at Synchrotron Light Sources

May 26, 2015 — Researchers have developed an 'X-rays on demand' technique in which ALS users can have access to the X-ray beams they want without affecting beams for other ... read more

May 26, 2015 — The thinnest possible linear thread that still retains a diamond-like structure was created by the extreme compression and decompression of the common chemical benzene. The threads may have ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Scientists have devised a way of directly detecting and visualizing biomolecules and their changing association states in solution by measuring their size and charge characteristics while confined in ... read more

May 20, 2015 — Scientists have succeeded in developing porous particles (mesoporous particles) consisting solely of phospholipids, a biological component, that are suitable for use as a drug delivery ... read more

May 20, 2015 — Researchers have made the first measurements of thermoelectric behavior by a nanoporous metal-organic framework (MOF), a development that could lead to an entirely new class of materials for such ... read more

Nature Inspires First Artificial Molecular Pump

May 19, 2015 — Using nature for inspiration, scientists have developed an entirely artificial molecular pump, in which molecules pump other molecules. The machine mimics the pumping mechanism of proteins that move ... read more

May 20, 2015 — Unexpected shapes of mesoscale atoms -- structures built of microdroplets encapsulated within microdroplets -- have now been created. The discovery was possible with a new method for precise control ... read more

New Portable Device Could Test How 'Squishy' Cancerous Tumors Are

May 20, 2015 — A new device will test a tumor's squishiness (Young's modulus), providing clinicians insight into how best to treat it. Preliminary testing has found that in general, more aggressive tumors ... read more

More Cycling With E-Bikes

May 20, 2015 — Electric bikes make people cycle longer and more often, a new study concludes, adding that the effect is best on women. A new study focused on how people use the electric bike and how the electric ... read more

Fresh Milk, Off the Grid

May 19, 2015 — Milk preservation depends upon refrigeration and boiling, but in developing countries these methods are costly and often impractical due to the sporadic availability of continuous electricity. New ... read more

May 18, 2015 — Chemists have helped develop a family of new chemical catalysts that are expected to lower the cost and boost the sustainability of the production of chemical compounds used by a number of ... read more

May 18, 2015 — Flexible, wearable electronics may benefit from graphene microsupercapacitors infused with boron and made with a common ... read more

May 18, 2015 — Nanomaterials commonly used in sunscreens and boat-bottom paints are making sea urchin embryos more vulnerable to toxins, according to a new study. The authors said this could pose a risk to coastal, ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new way to store energy that also offers a solution to a growing environmental ... read more

Revealing Breast Cancer Using Nanoscale Polymers

May 14, 2015 — A biocompatible polymer selectively targets and lights up cancer tumors for a noninvasive imaging system, investigators report. Generating photoacoustic signals requires an ultrafast laser pulse to ... read more

Eenvironmental Risk Assessment of Sub-Seabed Carbon Dioxide Storage

May 15, 2015 — A research project of carbon dioxide in the offshore sea bed is often discussed as a means to reduce further the increase of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. The project has developed ... read more

May 14, 2015 — Researchers realize highly confined transport of light energy over long distances using networks of gold ... read more

May 15, 2015 — One of the barriers to using graphene at a commercial scale could be overcome using a new method. Graphene, a material stronger and stiffer than carbon fiber, has enormous commercial potential but ... read more

May 15, 2015 — A new porous material exhibits high electrical conductivity as a bulk material that is potentially tunable and has unusual temperature dependence, suggesting new fundamental ... read more
