Enantioselectivity has been recognized in the fields of life science, pharmacology, modern medicine, and chemistry. The increasing release of chiral persistent organic pollutants (POPs) into the environment in recent decades has led to an increase in scientific research into their ...
Chinese scientists have combined interfacing dark field microscopy (DFM) with capillary electrophoresis (CE) and used it to “see” single gold nanoparticle (AuNPs) movement visually and in real time. The study also served to confirm the separation rules and fundamental theories of CE.
It may soon be easier to protect consumers from dangerous condiments thanks to an electrochemical method developed by Chinese scientists that can spot the toxic azo dye, Orange II. They were able to spot the dye at nanomolar concentrations in ketchup and chilli products using the ...
A graphene inspired electrode material that could help batteries hold more power has been developed by Chinese scientists. The large surface area of these cobalt oxide nanosheets is key to their electrochemical performance. As technology advances, the search is on for batteries that can pack ...
Wacker Chemie AG officially ramped up its new production plant for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions at its Nanjing site (Jiangsu province, China). With the additional 60,000 metric tons from the second reactor line, the local VAE dispersion capacity is doubling to total ...
Researchers in China have shown that the organic component of mother of pearl can help repair damaged teeth, by acting as a template for the mineralisation of tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is made up of rod-like crystals of hydroxyapatite, a calcium phosphate mineral. It is the hardest tissue in ...
LANXESS has started up on schedule a leather chemicals plant in Changzhou Yangtze Riverside Industrial Park. With a capacity of up to 50,000 metric tons per year, the plant is the largest of its kind in China and will strengthen LANXESS’ position as a sustainable leather chemicals provider in ...
Chinese chemists have developed a new nacre-like material which is stronger than natural nacre (mother of pearl). Nacre is a naturally occurring composite formed from calcium carbonate and biopolymers which create a brickwork structure. It is also nearly a thousand times stronger than any of ...
Scientists have discovered a phenomenon whereby granular material climbs up a vertically vibrating tube that is partially inserted in a granular silo. The final height to which the material climbs is found to depend on the strength of the vibrations and the depth to which the tube is ...
A novel zinc oxide microwire optical resonator with parallelogram-shaped cross section has been made by chemists. The material can effectively control light in two dimensions, and could play the part of a building block in the development of optoelectronic devices.
