July 20, 2016 — Scientists have come up with a new chemical reaction for the synthesis of low-dimensional polymers that can be rationalized as phthalocyanine ... read more

July 15, 2016 — A study that a new material made of carbon nanotubes supports the growth of nerve fibers, bridging segregated neural explants and providing a functional re-connection. The study also observed ... read more

July 15, 2016 — Combined experimental and theoretical work opens a unique capability for studying mechanical activation and processing at the single-molecule level, elementary reactions that are involved in many ... read more

July 14, 2016 — "Rivet graphene" has enhanced electronic properties and the ability to be transferred from one surface to another without contaminating polymers, according to ... read more

July 14, 2016 — A new strain of bacteria that spins out extremely thin and highly conductive wires made up of solely of non-toxic, natural amino acids has been developed by scientists. They say the wires, which ... read more

July 14, 2016 — Pour some water into your glass of ouzo or pastis, and the beverage will change from transparent to milky: this is the well-known 'Ouzo effect'. But what will happen if you simply place a ... read more

July 14, 2016 — A series of luminescent compounds has been developed that change emission colors upon mechanical stimuli. Although such compounds have attracted much attention with hopes of various applications, it ... read more

July 13, 2016 — Proponents of clean energy will soon have a new source to add: osmotic power. Or more specifically, energy generated by a natural phenomenon occurring when fresh water comes into contact with ... read more

July 13, 2016 — Plastic packaging might seem impenetrable -- and sometimes nearly impossible to remove -- but water molecules can still pass through. And this permeability to moisture can limit the lifespan of a ... read more

July 12, 2016 — A lightweight telescope that a team of NASA scientists and engineers is developing specifically for CubeSat scientific investigations could become the first to carry a mirror made of carbon nanotubes ... read more

July 12, 2016 — One scientist would like to put sand into your computer. Not beach sand, but silicon dioxide nanoparticles coated with a high dielectric constant polymer to inexpensively provide improved cooling for ... read more

July 12, 2016 — Researchers provide an overview of existing paths to 3-D materials, but the ultimate goal is to create and customize material at the atomic scale. Material would be assembled atom by atom, much like ... read more

July 12, 2016 — A technique that allows humanmade DNA shapes to be placed wherever desired -- to within a margin of error of just 20 nanometers -- now removes a major hurdle for the large-scale integration of ... read more

July 12, 2016 — Researchers are bringing their idea for a 'Window to the Brain' transparent skull implant closer to reality through the findings of two recent ... read more

July 12, 2016 — A team of Korean scientists has recently found a way to make building flexible pressure sensors easier -- by mimicking the suction cups on octopus's ... read more
