Water leads to chemical that gunks up biofuels production (9/2/2014)

Water leads to chemical that gunks up biofuels productionTrying to understand the chemistry that turns plant material into the same energy-rich gasoline and diesel we put in our vehicles, researchers have discovered that water in the conversion process helps form an impurity which, in turn, slows down key chemical reactions. ...> Full Article


Seeing a molecule breathe (9/1/2014)

For the first time, chemists have succeeded in measuring vibrational motion of a single molecule with a femtosecond time resolution. The study reveals how vibration of a single molecule differs from the behavior of larger molecular groups. ...> Full Article


Turning waste from rice, parsley and other foods into biodegradable plastic (8/31/2014)

Your chairs, synthetic rugs and plastic bags could one day be made out of cocoa, rice and vegetable waste rather than petroleum, scientists are now reporting. The novel process they developed and their results, which could help the world deal with its agricultural and plastic waste problems, appear in the ACS journal Macromolecules. ...> Full Article

Bubbling down: Discovery suggests surprising uses for common bubbles (8/29/2014)

Bubbling down: Discovery suggests surprising uses for common bubblesIn a finding with scientific and industrial applications, Princeton researchers find that bursting bubbles can push tiny particles down into a liquid as well as up into the air. ...> Full Article


Organic photovoltaic cells of the future (8/29/2014)

Organic photovoltaic cells of the futureOrganic photovoltaic cells -- a type of solar cell that uses polymeric materials to capture sunlight -- show tremendous promise as energy conversion devices, thanks to key attributes such as flexibility and low-cost production, but have complex power conversion processes. To maneuver around this problem, researchers have developed a method to determine the absolute value of the charge formation efficiency. The secret of their method is the combination of two types of spectroscopy. ...> Full Article

Scripps Research Institute chemists uncover powerful new click chemistry reactivity (8/27/2014)

Scripps Research Institute chemists uncover powerful new click chemistry reactivityChemists led by Nobel laureate K. Barry Sharpless at The Scripps Research Institute have used his click chemistry to uncover unprecedented, powerful reactivity for making new drugs, diagnostics, plastics, smart materials and many other products. ...> Full Article


Novel chip-based platform could simplify measurements of single molecules (8/26/2014)

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have developed a new approach for studying single molecules and nanoparticles by combining electrical and optical measurements on an integrated chip-based platform. In a paper published July 9 in Nano Letters, the researchers reported using the device to distinguish viruses from similarly sized nanoparticles with 100 percent fidelity. ...> Full Article


Engineer turns metal into glass (8/25/2014)

Materials scientists have long sought to form glass from pure, monoatomic metals. Scott X. Mao and colleagues did it. Their paper, 'Formation of Monoatomic Metallic Glasses Through Ultrafast Liquid Quenching,' was recently published online in Nature. ...> Full Article


Copper foam turns carbon dioxide into useful chemicals (8/24/2014)

Copper foam turns carbon dioxide into useful chemicalsScientists at Brown University's Center for Capture and Conversion of Carbon Dioxide have discovered that copper foam could provide a new way of converting excess carbon dioxide into useful industrial chemicals. ...> Full Article


Foam favorable for oil extraction (8/24/2014)

Therapy for ultraviolet laser beams: Hydrogen-treated fibers (8/23/2014)

Therapy for ultraviolet laser beams: Hydrogen-treated fibersScientists have known for years that hydrogen can alter the performance of optical fibers, which are often used to transmit or even generate laser light in optical devices. Now NIST researchers have put this to practical use to make optical fibers that transmit stable, high-power ultraviolet laser light for hundreds of hours without damage. ...> Full Article


Researchers prove stability of wonder material silicene (8/23/2014)

An international team of researchers has taken a significant step towards understanding the fundamental properties of the two-dimensional material silicene by showing that it can remain stable in the presence of oxygen. ...> Full Article
