Researchers find rust can power up artificial photosynthesis

Chemists at Boston College have achieved a series of breakthroughs in their efforts to develop an economical means of harnessing artificial photosynthesis by narrowing...

Nanoparticles deliver healing drugs directly to bone cracks

A novel method for finding and delivering healing drugs to newly formed microcracks in bones has been invented by a team of chemists and...

Scripps Research chemist devises new method to quantify protein changes

JUPITER, FL, January 5, 2011 -- A scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute has devised a new method of analyzing and quantifying changes in proteins that result from a common chemical process. The new findings could provi...

CCNY chemists design molecule that responds to stimuli

The venus flytrap plant captures its prey when it senses the presence of an insect on the tips of its leaves. An amphiphilic molecule designed by chemists at The City College of New York acts in a similar manner by changing its structure when heate...

Researchers find a stable way to store the sun’s heat

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Researchers at MIT have revealed exactly how a molecule called fulvalene diruthenium, which was discovered in 1996, works to store and release heat on demand. This understanding, reported in a paper published on Oct. 20 in the j...

Scripps scientists develop test providing new pathway for identifying obesity, diabetes...

La Jolla, CA, September 15, 2010 -- Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have designed a new molecular test that will allow researchers to look for potential drugs targeting a human metabolic enzyme believed to stimulate the appetite and pl...

Edible nanostructures

Sugar, salt, alcohol and a little serendipity led a Northwestern University research team to discover a new class of nanostructures that could be used for gas storage and food and medical technologies. And the compounds are edible. The porous crys...

Bochum’s researchers discover proton diode

Biophysicists in Bochum have discovered a diode for protons: just like the electronic component determines the direction of flow of electric current, the "proton diode" ensures that protons can only pass through a cell membrane in one direction....
