Bio-Inspired Biomimetics Can Outperform Natural Coenzymes

Feb. 1, 2016 — Researchers have developed a range of synthetic biomimetic compounds to replace the relatively expensive natural NADH and NADPH coenzymes in enzymatic conversions of industrial relevance. They show ... read more

Feb. 1, 2016 — When cold milk is poured into a hot cup of tea, a temperature equilibrium is reached very quickly. The milk droplets and the tea particles interact, and after a few moments they all have the same ... read more

Spin Dynamics in an Atomically Thin Semi-Conductor

Feb. 1, 2016 — The mechanisms for spin motion in molybdenum disulfide, an emerging two-dimensional (2D) material, have been established by researchers. Their discovery resolves a research question on the properties ... read more

Jan. 30, 2016 — A new simple, cost-effective approach that may open up an effective way to make other metallic/semiconducting ... read more

New Elements Recently Added to Periodic Table

Jan. 30, 2016 — A physicist lays claim to being instrumental in the discovery of four new super-heavy chemical elements—atomic numbers 113, 115, 117, and 118—recently added to the periodic ... read more

Jan. 30, 2016 — Researchers assumed that tiny objects would instantly blow up when hit by extremely intense light from the world’s most powerful X-ray laser. But to their astonishment, these nanoparticles ... read more

Jan. 29, 2016 — The iron Fe2+ atom embedded in a semiconductor exhibits a single non-degenerate ground state of zero magnetic moment. A team of scientists has demonstrated that by using sufficiently large strain it ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Getting the interfaces between the two liquids into different shapes unlocks new kinds of behaviors and applications. And thanks to new research, one special kind of emulsion is becoming easier to ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Scientists have been trying for years to make a practical lithium-ion battery anode out of silicon, which could store 10 times more energy per charge than today's commercial anodes and make ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Imagine a polymer with removable parts that can deliver something to the environment and then be chemically regenerated to function again. Or a polymer that can contract and expand the way muscles ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Physicists have made a surprising discovery that the arrangement of atomic nuclei spins helps bring about superconductivity in ytterbium dirhodium disilicide, one of the most-studied materials in a ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Chemists have revealed the chemistry behind how certain diseases, from anthrax to tuberculosis, replicate. The key lies in the function of a gene absent in humans, called thyX, and its ability to ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Innovative molecule helps palladium catalyst create complex ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — In the production of margarine, millions of tons of unsaturated fatty acids are converted from vegetable oils using hydrogen. While searching for improved catalysts for these so-called hydrogenation ... read more

Harnessing the Oxidizing Power of Air

Jan. 28, 2016 — Researchers report the catalysis of a highly specific chemical reaction where oxygen from the air is one ingredient and the other, an organic molecule, is selectively 'oxidized'. A simple ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — For the first time, researchers have shown that a very efficient vertical charge transport in semiconducting polymers is possible by controlled chain and crystallite orientation. These pioneering ... read more
