Smart AI makes all kinds of shapes on its own

Artificial neural network system recommends plastic molding process conditions

20-Aug-2020

Plastic is light, cheap, and can be made into any shape if heated, making it a "gift from the 20th-century god." The key is to maintain its uniform quality but its sensitivity to process conditions makes processing autonomy difficult. It also takes long to change the process once it is set and ...

Seeing chemical reactions with music

Audible sound enables chemical coloring and the coexistence of different chemical reactions in a solution

12-Aug-2020

Albert Einstein once said, "I see my life in terms of music." Perhaps inspired by his words, scientists at the Center for Self-assembly and Complexity (CSC), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, South Korea) now see chemical reactions in the presence of music. The IBS research team has ...

A novel strategy to generate useful chiral compounds

Newly designed ligands for a catalytic reaction to synthesize drugs and useful compounds

01-Jul-2020

Currently, various therapeutic compounds in the market, such as proteins, enzymes, and amino acids, are "chiral compounds"--molecules with two structures that are "mirror" images of each other but cannot be superimposed. Although the two variants of the molecule, also called "enantiomers," are ...
