Discovery and development of new herbicides
BASF and Evogene Ltd. announced the signing of a three-year collaboration for the discovery and development of novel herbicides. Under the terms of agreement, Evogene will utilize its biology-driven computational discovery approach to identify potential candidate chemicals for novel herbicides. ...
Self-assembling nanoparticles take their cues from their surroundings
The medium is the message. Dr. Rafal Klajn of the Weizmann Institute's Organic Chemistry Department and his group have given new meaning to this maxim: A method they have now demonstrated for getting nanoparticles to self-assemble focuses on the medium in which the particles are suspended; these ...
Merck announced that it is acquiring the remaining stake in Qlight Nanotech Ltd., Jerusalem, Israel, and will hold 100% of the company. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. “The acquisition of Qlight Nanotech perfectly fits into our innovation strategy. We have set the basic ...
Tel Aviv University researcher's groundbreaking sensor detects miniscule concentrations of hazardous materials in the air
Security forces worldwide rely on sophisticated equipment, trained personnel, and detection dogs to safeguard airports and other public areas against terrorist attacks. A new electronic chip with nano-sized chemical sensors is about to make their job much easier. The groundbreaking ...
A measuring device for superconductors breaks world records
Weizmann Institute scientists have taken a quantum leap toward understanding the phenomenon known as superconductivity: They have created the world’s smallest SQUID – a device used to measure magnetic fields – which has broken the world record for sensitivity and resolution. Superconductivity is ...
Merck announced that it has increased its stake in the Jerusalem-based company Qlight Nanotech, which develops products for advanced displays and energy-efficient lighting. The Israeli start-up was formed as a spin-off of Yissum, the technology transfer company of Hebrew University of Jerusalem. ...
Researchers at the Blechner Center have developed a revolutionary process to convert carbon dioxide and hydrogen into a green feed that can be refined into renewable liquid fuels
A replacement for oil hasbecome a burning need in the 21st century. Ben-Gurion University ofthe Negev researchers have invented a process to make a green feed alternativefor crude oil out of two of the most common substances on Earth – water andcarbon dioxide, which is a greenhouse gas ...
Research reports a novel and extremely simple method for synthesising 18O-labelled alcohols using commercial boronic acids and a reagent prepared from elemental fluorine. Alcohols labelled with 18O are very valuable as biological probes for a variety of studies which are often limited by the ...
Gold nanoparticles capped with mercaptocarboxylic acids, followed by silver precipitation, have been used to develop latent fingerprints on paper as high quality negative images. Scientists say that the effect stems from hydrogen bonding between the carboxylic group and the paper ...
Weizmann Institute researchers suggest one can affect an atom's spin by adjusting the way it is measured
One of the most basic laws of quantum mechanics is that a system can be in more than one state – it can exist in multiple realities – at once. This phenomenon, known as the superposition principle, exists only so long as the system is not observed or measured in any way. As soon as such a system ...
