New solvent a solution for low-cost electronics?

Researchers at USC have created a solvent that will dissolve semiconductors safely and cheaply, allowing them to be applied as a thin film that...

Gold nanoparticles give an edge in recycling CO2

By tuning gold nanoparticles to just the right size, researchers from Brown University have developed a catalyst that selectively converts carbon dioxide (CO2) to...

New catalyst could cut cost of making hydrogen fuel

A discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison may represent a significant advance in the quest to create a "hydrogen economy" that would use this...

Chemists develop liquid-based hydrogen storage material

University of Oregon chemists have developed a boron-nitrogen-based liquid-phase storage material for hydrogen that works safely at room temperature and is both air- and...

Nanonets give rust a boost as agent in water splitting’s hydrogen...

CHESTNUT HILL, MA (2/9/2011) -- Coating a lattice of tiny wires called Nanonets with iron oxide -- known more commonly as rust -- creates an economical and efficient platform for the process of water splitting, an emerging clean fuel scienc...

Scientists synthesize long-sought-after anticancer agent

New Haven, Conn. -- A team of Yale University scientists has synthesized for the first time a chemical compound called lomaiviticin aglycon, leading to the development of a new class of molecules that appear to target and destroy cancer stem cells. ...

Stretching the truth: JILA biophysicists help unravel DNA stretching mystery

Using a new experimental test structure, biophysicists at JILA have unraveled part of a 15-year mystery in the mechanics of DNA -- just how the molecule manages to suddenly extend to almost twice its normal length. The new test structure should supp...

New method takes snapshots of proteins as they fold

People have only 20,000 to 30,000 genes (the number is hotly contested), but they use those genes to make more than 2 million proteins. It's the protein molecules that domost of the work in the human cell. After all, the word protein comes fro...

Listen up — U-M experiment records ultrafast chemical reaction with vibrational...

ANN ARBOR, Mich.---To watch a magician transform a vase of flowers into a rabbit, it's best to have a front-row seat. Likewise, for chemical transformations in solution, the best view belongs to the molecular spectators closest to the action. ...

New infrared light may open new frontier in fighting cancer, Tay...

A "game-changing" technique using near infrared light enables scientists to look deeper into the guts of cells, potentially opening up a new frontier in the fights against cancer and many other diseases. University of Central Florida chemists, led...
