May 29, 2015 — An international research team’s theoretical simulation of the synthesis of single-walled carbon nanotubes has revealed important details of the mechanisms at play. This could lead to better ways ... read more

May 29, 2015 — Researchers have developed a waste-free and cost-effective approach for preparing complex organic molecules and revealing the physical nature of the processes that control the direction of chemical ... read more

May 26, 2015 — A unique, high performance foam has been developed that can be used to make safer athletic gear and medical equipment, among other things. The developers anticipate an immediate benefit to the ... 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 — A broad and strikingly inexpensive method for synthesizing "amines," a class of organic compounds prominent in drugs and other modern products, has been discovered by a group of chemists. ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers have developed a process to make a thermoset that can be reshaped and reused. The new plastic is a shape-memory polymer, so named because the material can “remember” its original ... 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 21, 2015 — Researchers have developed an electrode consisting of a single-atom-thick layer of carbon to help make more durable artificial muscles. They are hoping to make a robot that can walk and jump on water ... read more

May 20, 2015 — Scientists have successfully developed a nanoporous gold material with a regular, uniform pore arrangement using polymers as a ... read more

May 20, 2015 — Researchers have developed an inexpensive way to manufacture nanofibers. The new method, dubbed 'magnetospinning,' provides a very simple, scalable and safe means for producing very large ... 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 19, 2015 — A new process has been developed for spontaneously incorporating and assembling carbon nanotubes and oxygen-scavenging nanoparticles into chloroplasts, the part of plant cells that conduct ... 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

Organic Nanoparticles, More Lethal to Tumors

May 18, 2015 — Carbon-based nanoparticles could be used to sensitize cancerous tumours to proton radiotherapy and induce more focused destruction of cancer cells, a new study shows. Radiotherapy used in cancer ... read more

May 18, 2015 — A new metal oxide was discovered whose atomic structure includes highly ordered arrays of missing oxygen atoms. This structure allows oxygen ions to move through the material quickly and easily at ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Only recently has nanotechnology made it possible to reach the scale required to test the theoretical model known as the Tomonaga-Luttinger theory. Now, a team of researchers has succeeded in ... 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

May 13, 2015 — Lignocellulosic biomass can be successfully converted into pure BTX chemicals: benzene, toluene and xylene, research demonstrates. The aim of this research is to enable the use of wood-based ... read more
