A fundamental discovery that alters our current understanding of how metals solidify and form crystalline patterns may help lead to better control of casting and welding processes. It also explains how snowflakes and many mineral patterns form naturally. Reexamining data from his 20-year-old NASA ex more
The waves at the bottom of old window panes are a reminder that solid glass behaves like a very slow-moving liquid. Now a new study challenges the notion that the atomic structure of glass is indistinguishable from that of a liquid - at least for a certain kind of glass called "amorphous ice" that more
An international team of scientists has set a new record for creating ice crystals that have a near-perfect cubic arrangement of water molecules--a form of ice that may exist in the coldest high-altitude clouds but is extremely hard to make on Earth. The ability to make and study cubic ice in the la more
"A little splash of liquid nitrogen hasn't hurt anybody" - this happens to be a widespread opinion in many laboratories. The real dangers connected to cryogenic gases many people had to learn firsthand, unexpected and painful. Skin irritation, cell a more
Ice cream is a mainstay of summer – for many, a trip to the beach would be incomplete without one. Despite its seeming simplicity, ice cream is a prime example of some fairly complex chemistry. This graphic takes a look at some of the ingredients that go into ice cream, and the important role they p more
I scream, you scream, we all scream for the chemistry of ice cream! Rich Hartel returns for his fourth webinar to explain the chemistry of everyone’s favorite summer treat. Tune in to learn about ice cream's microstructure (ice crystals, air cells, fat globules/clusters) and why some brands don't se
Food, usually of plant or animal origin and containing important nutrients, is usually modified and made fit for consumption. Thermal analysis allows the of study physical and chemical effects related to temperature changes that occur during the normal food processing cycle, such as boiling, freezin
Biopharmaceuticals are frequently stored in the frozen state to avoid rapid degradation. Moreover, therapeutic proteins are frequently made into a dried form to provide long-term storage. However, both freezing and drying stresses can result in protein unfolding and aggregation. Thus, a proper formu more
Molecular dynamics (MD) computer simulations are used to study the structure of hard-core Yukawa systems confined between two parallel hard walls. States around the coexistence between a fluid and a body-centered cubic (BCC) crystal are considered. In all cases a pronounced layering in the vicinity more
The photophysics and photostability of 12,13-dihydro-5H-indolo[3,2-c]acridine (IA), a rigid bifunctional indole derivative with proton donor/acceptor functionalities, can be drastically changed by the environment. The formation of hydrogen bonds with alcohols leads to a significant decrease of the t more
