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 — Scientists have developed an environment friendly version of building concrete called green-mix ... 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

Revolutionary Therapeutic Dental Adhesives With the Aptitude to Remineralize the Resin-Dentine Bonding Interface Through Biomimetic Processes

May 25, 2015 — Dental health researchers report that clinical minimally invasive treatments require the elimination of dental caries-infected tissues in order to stop the progression of bacteria to the pulpal ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Extremely small batteries built inside nanopores show that properly scaled structures can use the full theoretical capacity of the charge storage material. The batteries are part of assessing the ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Where do electronics go when they die? Most devices are laid to eternal rest in landfills. But what if they just dissolved away, or broke down to their molecular components so that the material could ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers created thin, flexible electronic devices that efficiently harvest the mechanical energy from natural motions of the human body. In addition to advances in materials processing to enable ... 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 — Most people see defects as flaws. A few researchers, however, see them as opportunities. Twin boundary defects may present an opportunity to improve lithium-ion ... read more

Simulations Predict Flat Liquid

May 21, 2015 — Computer simulations have predicted a new phase of matter: atomically thin two-dimensional ... 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

Development of Gold Nanoparticles That Control Osteogenic Differentiation of Stem Cells

May 20, 2015 — Scientists have successfully developed gold nanoparticles that have functional surfaces and act on osteogenic differentiation of stem ... 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 — 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 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 — A new study has shown that just as exposure to gamma radiation transforms Bruce Banner into fictional superhero the Hulk, exposure to alpha-particle radiation can transform thermoelectric materials ... 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
