'Invisible' Protein Structure Explains the Power of Enzymes

July 3, 2015 — A research group has managed to capture and describe a protein structure that, until now, has been impossible to study. The discovery lays the base for developing designed enzymes as catalysts to new ... read more

June 29, 2015 — Making carbon-carbon bonds continues to be an important strategy to synthesize useful pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and organic materials. Chemists have now expanded the scope of a Nobel ... read more

The Quantum Spin Hall Effect Is a Fundamental Property of Light

June 25, 2015 — Scientists have demonstrated that the quantum spin Hall effect -- an effect known to take place in solid state physics -- is also an intrinsic property of ... read more

June 25, 2015 — On average, the mother liquor or solvent and its constituents occupy about 50 percent of a macromolecular crystal. Ordered as well as disordered solvent components need to be accurately accounted for ... read more

June 25, 2015 — An interdisciplinary team has made a semiconductor crystal with a variable band gap. Among other potential uses, this variable semiconductor could lead to solar cells that absorb more energy from the ... read more

June 24, 2015 — It took marine sponges millions of years to perfect their spike-like structures, but research mimicking these formations may soon alter how industrial coatings and 3-D printed objects are ... read more

What Your Clothes May Literally Say About You

June 24, 2015 — Researchers have designed a responsive hybrid material that is fueled by an oscillatory chemical reaction and can perform computations based on changes in the environment or movement, and potentially ... read more

June 24, 2015 — Building self-assembled 'molecular straws' from bis-urea macrocycles, a research team has developed a new nanotube system that can be used to directly compare single-file diffusion dynamics ... read more

New Technique to Accurately Detect 'Handedness' of Molecules in a Mixture

June 24, 2015 — Scientists have demonstrated for the first time the ability to rapidly, reliably and simultaneously identify the 'handedness' of different molecules in a ... read more

June 23, 2015 — The development of new methods for the chemical synthesis of proteins is highly significant to access a range of proteins inaccessible by conventional approaches. Chemists have succeeded in the first ... read more

June 23, 2015 — Engineers have demonstrated a bacterial method for the low-cost, environmentally friendly synthesis of aqueous soluble quantum dot nanocrystals at room ... read more

June 23, 2015 — Physicists have found a way to control the length and strength of waves of atomic motion called polaritons that have promising potential uses such as fine-scale imaging and the transmission of ... read more

June 23, 2015 — Researchers have developed a new approach for forming 3-D shapes from flat, 2-D sheets of graphene, paving the way for future integrated systems of graphene-MEMS hybrid devices and flexible ... read more

June 23, 2015 — A growing interest in thermoelectric materials -- which convert waste heat to electricity -- and pressure to improve heat transfer from increasingly powerful microelectronic devices have led to ... read more

June 23, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new technique to rapidly create multi-layered, self-assembled grids could transform the manufacture of high-tech coatings for anti-reflective surfaces, improved solar ... read more

Destructive Power of Bubbles Could Lead to New Industrial Applications

June 22, 2015 — Cavitation bubbles can kill fish and damage boat propellers. Researcher say learning more about them could harness that power for industrial uses, like safer cleaning ... read more

June 22, 2015 — It may be significantly easier to design electronic components in future. Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a compound of niobium and phosphorus increases enormously when ... read more

June 22, 2015 — A new technique which enables researchers to visualize the activity of individual ions inside battery-like devices called supercapacitors, could enable greater control over their properties and ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Using X-rays, scientists measured the ultrafast response of DNA nucleobases to UV light. They found that the UV excited state in the nucleobase thymine decays rapidly, harmlessly dissipating the ... read more

June 22, 2015 — It’s possible to vary (even dramatically) the sliding properties of atoms on a surface by changing the size and “compression” of their aggregates, according to new ... read more
