Maternal exposure to chemicals linked to autistic-like behaviours in children

31-Mar-2021

A new study by Simon Fraser University's Faculty of Health Sciences researchers found correlations between increased expressions of autistic-like behaviours in pre-school aged children to gestational exposure to select environmental toxicants, including metals, pesticides, polychlorinated ...

It's snowing plastic

New technique detects minute particles of plastics in snow, rain and even soil

22-Mar-2021

The snow may be melting, but it is leaving pollution behind in the form of micro- and nano-plastics according to a McGill study that was recently published in Environmental Pollution. The pollution is largely due to the relatively soluble plastics found in antifreeze products (polyethylene ...

Discovery of 'knock-on chemistry' opens new frontier in reaction dynamics

New experimental findings cast in doubt 90-year-old theoretical model of the transition state in chemical reactions

18-Mar-2021

Research by a team of chemists at the University of Toronto, led by Nobel Prize-winning researcher John Polanyi, is shedding new light on the behaviour of molecules as they collide and exchange atoms during chemical reaction. The discovery casts doubt on a 90-year old theoretical model of the ...

One step closer to creating organic batteries

10-Mar-2020

York University researchers have discovered a way to make Lithium-powered batteries more environmentally friendly while retaining performance, stability and storage capacity. Lithium-ion batteries use toxic, heavy metals which can impact the environment when they are extracted from the ground and ...

Shaping the rings of molecules

Boon for the making of pharmaceuticals and electronics

25-Feb-2020

Macrocycles are molecules made of large rings of atoms. Despite being relatively big and flexible, the molecules don't always stay "floppy" -- they can actually lock themselves into specific shapes and geometries. In manufacturing, controlling the three-dimensional shapes of macrocycles is ...

New quantum switch turns metals into insulators

05-Feb-2020

Most modern electronic devices rely on tiny, finely-tuned electrical currents to process and store information. These currents dictate how fast our computers run, how regularly our pacemakers tick and how securely our money is stored in the bank. In a study published in Nature Physics, ...
