  • Nanometre gaps can crystallise liquids

    Very narrow gaps make liquids crystallise partially. X-ray investigations at DESY show that in gaps just a few molecule diameters wide both, liquid and crystal properties of a material can exist at the same time. The observation of this coexistence is important for all liquids in very small cavities more

  • Frustrated materials under high pressure

    People are not the only ones to be occasionally frustrated. Some crystals also show frustrations. They do so whenever their elementary magnets, the magnetic spins, cannot align properly. Cesium copper chloride (Cs2CuCl4) – or CCC for short – is a prime example of frustrated materials. In this crysta more

  • How to Freeze Heat Conduction

    Physicists have discovered a new effect, which makes it possible to create excellent thermal insulators which conduct electricity. Such materials can be used to convert waste heat into electrical energy. Every day we lose valuable energy in the form of waste heat - in technical devices at home, but more

Understanding Crystallography - Part 1: From Proteins to Crystals

How can you determine the structure of a complex molecule from a single crystal? Professor Elspeth Garman take us on a journey into the world of crystallography - from protein production and purification to growing the right type of crystals.In her laboratory at the University of Oxford Elspeth ... more

Understanding Crystallography - Part 2: From Crystals to Diamond

How do X-rays help us uncover the molecular basis of life?In the second part of this mini-series, Professor Stephen Curry takes us on a journey into the Diamond Light Source, one of the UK's most expensive and sophisticated scientific facilities.Generating light brighter than the sun, and hostin ... more

Pulling Apart Titanium Oxide Surfaces

Researchers slowly pull apart tiny bits of a titanium oxide mineral called rutile. The red dots near the top show the starting point. As the bottom half is pulled down, the top half stays attached by van der Waals forces -- until, that is, the pull becomes too great. The tips are about a thousan ... more

The Shapes of Snowflakes

In the Northern Hemisphere at least, the idealised vision of Christmas involves snow. Whilst no one snowflake is exactly the same as another, at least on a molecular level, scientists have none-the-less devised a system of classification for the many types of crystals that snow can form. This graphi more

Lead Iodide & ‘Golden Rain’

Kicking off an occasional new series of graphics with today’s post, which’ll be looking at common chemical reactions encountered in schools. Today kicks off with one of my favourite reactions, the ‘Golden Rain’ demonstration, which involves the synthesis and recrystallisation of lead (II) iodide, an more
