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

Turning Sewage Sludge Into Concrete

Aug. 28, 2015 — Dried sewage sludge could be an alternative cement material for concrete, researchers have ... read more

Aug. 26, 2015 — Patients suffering from aneurysms that extend from their chest into their groin may be helped by a new stent graft, thanks to collaborative research. Mechanical engineers fluid flow modeling ... read more

Introducing the Single-Cell Maze Runner

Aug. 19, 2015 — New findings on somersaulting single-cell organisms could impact the study of how the containment affects the behavior of organisms, used in a wide variety of engineering and scientific ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — Soft machines and robots are capable of moving, jumping and gripping objects thanks to soft, inflatable segments called fluidic actuators. These actuators require large amounts of air or water to ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — Researchers have observed droplets spontaneously fling themselves from thin fibers. The phenomenon occurs so long as the fibers are small enough relative to the coalescing droplets and moderately ... read more

Eliminating Water-Borne Bacteria With Pages from The Drinkable Book Could Save Lives

Aug. 16, 2015 — Human consumption of bacterially contaminated water causes millions of deaths each year throughout the world -- primarily among children. An inexpensive, simple and easily transportable ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Researchers have developed a model system for so-called soft colloids. The model gives us a better understanding of correlations between the atomic structure of colloids and their perceptible ... read more

Aug. 13, 2015 — Researchers have developed technology to squeeze materials with a million times the pressure of Earth's atmosphere while studying them with neutrons. When they bombard these materials with ... read more

Sediment Dwelling Creatures at Risk from Nanoparticles in Common Household Products

Aug. 13, 2015 — Biologists highlight the risks posed to aquatic organisms when nanoparticles 'transform' on contact with water and as they pass from water to sediment and then into sediment dwelling ... read more

New Hydrogel Stretches, Contracts Like a Heat-Driven Muscle

Aug. 10, 2015 — A new hydrogel that works like an artificial muscle -- quickly stretching and contracting in response to changing temperature -- has been developed by researchers. They have also managed to use the ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Researchers show that magnetic nanoparticles encased in oily liquid shells can bind together in water, much like sand particles mixed with the right amount of water can form ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Researchers have succeeded in clearly identifying why droplets on soft, squishy surfaces react differently than on hard surfaces. A water droplet, for example, moves very differently over jelly than ... read more

Aug. 4, 2015 — New discovery about how surface gradients influence droplet behavior may enable novel surfaces with anti-icing capabilities for a tremendous range of ... read more

Aug. 4, 2015 — A novel process configuration has been developed for producing clean middle-distillate fuels from coal with minimal ... read more

Aug. 3, 2015 — For the first time, researchers have directly calculated the rate at which water crystallizes into ice in a realistic computer model of water molecules. Understanding ice formation adds to our ... read more

Aug. 1, 2015 — After debuting the world's first solar air battery last fall, researchers have now reached a new milestone. They report that their patent-pending design -- which combines a solar cell and a ... read more

July 31, 2015 — Using ultracold atoms trapped in light crystals, scientists have observed a novel state of matter that never ... read more

July 30, 2015 — By analyzing the natural mechanics of the water strider that enable it to launch off water's surface scientists have emulated this extreme form of locomotion in novel robotic ... read more

July 30, 2015 — Two key physical phenomena take place at the surfaces of materials: catalysis and wetting. A catalyst enhances the rate of chemical reactions; wetting refers to how liquids spread across a surface. ... read more
