New look for antiques

Paintings and gilt surfaces can be effectively and gently restored with water-based microemulsions

02-Nov-2009

In the past, restoration of paintings and other old artwork often involved application of acrylic resins to consolidate and protect them. One of the most important tasks for modern restorers is thus to remove these layers, because it turns out that acrylic resins not only drastically change the ...

Is trash the solution to tackling climate change?

Waste-based biofuel could cut global emissions by over 80 percent

02-Oct-2009

Converting the trash that fills the world's landfills into biofuel may be the answer to both the growing energy crisis and to tackling carbon emissions, claim scientists in Singapore and Switzerland. New research published in Global Change Biology: Bioenergy, reveals how replacing gasoline with ...

Carbon nanotubes and aptamers: New biosensor detects extremely low bacteria concentrations quickly, easily and reliably

23-Jul-2009

Bacterial diseases are usually detected by first enriching samples, then separating, identifying, and counting the bacteria. This type of procedure usually takes at least two days after arrival of the sample in the laboratory. Tests that work faster, in the field, and without complex sample ...

Biomass as a source of raw materials

New process for obtaining alkanes from bio-oil

19-May-2009

For the protection of the environment, and because of the limited amount of fossil fuels available, renewable resources, such as specially cultivated plants, wood scraps, and other plant waste, are becoming the focus of considerable attention. Processes such as pyrolysis or liquefaction allow the ...

Progress toward artificial tissue?

Soft and tough like biological tissue: DNA-wrapped carbon nanotubes

19-May-2009

For modern implants and the growth of artificial tissue and organs, it is important to generate materials with characteristics that closely emulate nature. However, the tissue in our bodies has a combination of traits that are very hard to recreate in synthetic materials: It is both soft and very ...
