Neutron beams reveal how antibodies cluster in solution


Scientists have used small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and neutron spin-echo (NSE) techniques for the first time to understand how monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), a class of targeted biopharmaceuticals used to treat autoimmune disorders and cancer, dynamically cluster and move in high ...


Using bacteria to make electrodes


Scientists in France have produced hematite using a bacterial pathway for use as an electrode material in Li-ion technologies. Currently, most commercial electrode materials for Li-ion technologies are prepared using the ceramic method, which requires long heating periods at high temperatures ...

X-rays reveal an unexpected property of widely used nanoparticles


A new chapter has been opened in our understanding of the chemical activity of nanoparticles says a team of international scientists. Using the X-ray beams of the European Synchrotron ESRF they showed that the electrons absorbed and released by cerium dioxide nanoparticles during chemical ...


New European database launched


A new public database of Europe’s finest scientific research facilities has been launched today to better inform policy makers about the deployment of science funding and to help scientists locate and access the most appropriate equipment and services to support their research. This new tool is ...


Nano-tattoos for bespoke surface design


Research reports a new strategy for using atomic force microscopy (AFM) coupled with homogeneous catalysis to carry out chemical reactions that have been ‘tattooed’ onto a material surface. Researchers in France immobilised a homogeneous transition metal catalyst onto an AFM probe and used it to ...


Carbios signs a €7 million strategic collaboration with INRA


Carbios, a green chemistry company that specializes in innovative biological and industrial processes for recovering plastic waste and is developing competitive production processes for biosourced plastics and biopolymers, announced the signature of a pivotal €7-million collaboration with the ...


Multi-coloured photonic materials with a ‘woodpile’ structure


High quality photonic materials possessing a ‘woodpile’ structure have been fabricated using a single prism holographic lithography technique. The multicolored materials, which comprise of 160nm rods stacked in alternating piles, show enhanced fluorescence due to their large surface area and the ...


A new type of sunscreen


Researchers from France have developed a new type of sunscreen. The sunscreen is made from latex that traps a UVB filter chemical within its structure. The team designed the sunscreen to protect wounded skin, which conventional sun creams are ineffective for. The sun-shielding films were able to ...


Newly discovered organisms to help clean up nuclear waste


The nuclear industry generates radioactive toxic waste, which needs to be decontaminated inside the facilities themselves and of the effluents released into the environment. Radionuclide decontamination is currently performed using physico-chemical methods and while they work well, they are ...


An experimental approach to understanding the fire hazard involved when handling ionic liquids


Ionic liquids (ILs) have been embraced as the green solvent of the future and are noted for their operational safety in part due to their non-flammable nature as compared to conventional solvents. In fact, existing regulations for measuring the flammability of solvents do not take into account ...
