Results may inspire new treatments for lead poisoning
Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and the University of Chicago have discovered that a member of a well-known protein family is better at detecting lead than any other known substance. Learning more about the protein's structure and lead-detection ...
Studies may help identify best materials for variety of future electronics applications
Organic materials are particularly attractive for potential applications such as flexible displays, or so-called "electronic paper," because they are inherently flexible. "Imagine a computer screen that you could crumple or fold like a sheet of plastic film," says Vladimir Butko, a scientist from ...
Thin films made of so-called thermoelectric materials could be used to convert heat directly into electric energy, or vise versa, for a variety of applications, including micro-chip-based chemical and biological sensors and more-efficient ways to cool computer chips. Thermoelectrics also hold ...
Technique may also help assess, improve effectiveness of pain medication following fetal surgery
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory demonstrate a new way to assess the potentially damaging effects of prenatal drug exposure -- a technique that could also be used to monitor a fetus's response to therapeutic drugs -- using sophisticated, non-invasive ...
A new phase of the element carbon, a superhard compressed graphite, has been identified by a research team that includes a scientist from the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. The findings appeared in the October 17, 2003 ...
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have used a new way to isolate and study an important intermediate in the epoxidation of olefins such as ethylene: They run the reaction in reverse. By starting with the final products (epoxides) and placing them on the ...
