For 2-D Boron, It's All About That Base

Sep. 2, 2015 — If two-dimensional boron can be made at all, the material's substrate will have a significant impact on its final form, according to ... read more

Sep. 2, 2015 — A group of scientists using computer generated simulation have predicted the existence of a new two-dimensional carbon material, a ... read more

Sep. 2, 2015 — The medium is the message. Scientists have now given new meaning to this maxim: An innovative method they have now demonstrated for getting nanoparticles to self-assemble focuses on the medium in ... read more

Sep. 2, 2015 — Scientists discovered a material that exhibits an unprecedented mechanism for carbon dioxide capture-and-release with only small shifts in temperature. The material’s structure closely resembles an ... read more

Sep. 2, 2015 — Researchers have shown that coccolith disks made of calcium carbonate in <em>Emiliania huxleyi</em>, one of the promising biomass resources, potentially perform roles in reducing and ... read more

Sep. 1, 2015 — A major international collaboration is laying the technical groundwork for taking individual, atomic-scale portraits of intact viruses, living bacteria and other microscopic samples using the ... read more

Sep. 1, 2015 — A drop of water self-heals a multiphase polymer derived from the genetic code of squid ring teeth, which may someday extend the life of medical implants, fiber-optic cables and other hard to repair ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — Hard, complex materials with many components are used to fabricate some of today's most advanced technology tools. However, little is still known about how the properties of these materials ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — Experimental and theoretical physicists and a polymer scientist have teamed up to use much thinner sheets than before to achieve seeking to encapsulate droplets of one fluid within another. Thinner, ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — Researchers have found that molecular machines can be easily manipulated using very small mechanical energy, taking advantage of the property that they aggregate on the surface of ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — A group in Japan has developed tissue adhesive porous films that promote angiogenesis without using growth factors. This new technology may contribute to medical cost reduction making expensive ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — A suppression of strange quark production relative to up and down quark production had previously been noted; for the first time, the result has been verified when a single pair is ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — Extremely water-repellant surfaces were fabricated that can withstand pressures that are 10 times greater than the average pressure a surface would experience resting in a room. The surfaces resist ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Good news for those interested in accurately modeling combustion engines, scientists can now discriminate between previously unidentified radicals found in the early stages of the combustion process ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — A new solar fuel generation system, or artificial leaf, safely creates fuel from sunlight and water with record-setting efficiency and ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Researchers have developed the first nano/micro-textured highly slippery surfaces able to outperform lotus leaf-inspired liquid repellent coatings, particularly in situations where the water is in ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — In all organisms, water's pH has a profound effect. Because the interaction of carbon dioxide and water explains the natural acidity of water and all accompanying reactions, it is considered a ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Turning carbon dioxide from certain power plants into a more valuable chemical would reduce emissions while creating a revenue return. Scientists have now derived a metal-free catalyst that does the ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Scientists have developed a method, using a double layer of lipids, which facilitates the assembly of DNA origami units, bringing us one-step closer to DNA ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Researchers have for the first time created and used a nanoscale vehicle made of DNA to deliver a CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool into cells in both cell culture and an animal ... read more
