  • Dutch scientists create plastic that emits light when pulled

    Scientists at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands for the first time succeeded in creating a plastic that emits light when pulled. The researchers can make the plastic emit red, yellow, blue and green light. The results were published in Nature Chemistry.The researchers inco more

  • Atmospheric Measuring Device for Understanding Smog Formation

    Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a new tool for quantitatively measuring elusive atmospheric chemicals that play a key role in the formation of photochemical smog. Better measurements will improve scientists' understanding of the mechanisms more

  • Novel technologies for molecular diagnosis and early detection of cancer

    Relab AG’s GeneStick® platform is a unique Biochip format that was specially developed for diagnostic applications. Up to 400 different biomolecules such as DNA are immobilized covalently as capture probes on the front end of the novel plastic stick, thus allowing a massive number of parameters (e.g more

The Chemistry of Glow Sticks

Everyone’s familiar with glow sticks, but it’s likely that fewer are familiar with the chemistry behind their glow. You may have wondered what happens when you snap a glow stick to activate it; by doing this, you’re actually kicking off a chemical process that eventually leads to the production of t more

Crime Scene Chemistry

Anyone who’s watched CSI or similar shows knows that, whenever the investigating team are on the scene of a gruesome and bloody murder, luminol solution gets sprayed liberally over absolutely everything. The result is a pale blue luminescence whenever the solution meets blood, which itself is a cons more



Chemiluminescence producing a large amount of light. Chemiluminescence (sometimes "chemoluminescence") is the emission of light (luminescence ) without emission of heat as the result of a chemical reaction. Given reactants A and B, with an ex ... more
