Quick clean-up: New process turns decades into hours for mining-water purification

14-Dec-2015

Cleaning up the water left over from mining operations can literally take generations - 25 to 50 years on average - leaving billions of gallons of the precious resource locked up and useless. Now, a University of Florida researcher has figured out how to trim that time dramatically - to just two ...

Non-toxic flame retardants

25-Jul-2013

Synthetic materials made from organic polymers usually burn very well due to their high carbon content; when turned into foams, they ignite even more easily -- and, depending on their chemical compositions, they produce toxic gases such as hydrogen cyanide or carbon monoxide. For this reason, ...

Tooth enamel restoration inspired by mother of pearl

17-Apr-2013

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 the ...
