  • Molecular switch detects metals in the environment

    An international team, led by researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, has designed a family of molecules capable of binding to metal ions present in its environment and providing an easily detectable light signal during binding. This new type of sensor forms a 3D structure wh more

  • Soil bugs munch on plastics

    Thin mulch films made of polyethylene are used in agriculture in numerous countries, where they cause extensive soil contamination. Researchers at ETH Zurich and Eawag have now identified an alternative: films made of the polymer PBAT biodegrade in soils. Our world is drowning in a flood of plastic. more

  • New model makes us wiser on cocktail effects

    The ability of chemical combinations to precipitate a cocktail effect is acknowledged. We can also calculate the impacts of various chemical products ranging from shampoos to pesticides. However, critical exceptions add uncertainty to these calculations. One group of chemicals, known as synergistic more

Ocean Acidification:

Ocean acidification is often referred to as ‘the other carbon dioxide problem’. We’re all quite rightly concerned about the effects that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels may have on climate, and the potential consequences of climate change are well documented: more frequent instances of extr more

  • DIN/ISO Compliant Calibrations

    Today Analytical Chemistry is embedded in a strictly regulated environment and it has to be ensured that verifiable and officially authorised methods are used. How can this be achieved in a reproducible and unequivocal way? Here we approach this question with respect to the problem of establishing and interpreting calibrations in Instrumental Analysis. more
