Answering a century-old question on the origins of life

A team of Japanese scientists found the missing link between chemistry and biology in the origins of life

04-Oct-2021

The missing link isn’t a not-yet-discovered fossil, after all. It’s a tiny, self-replicating globule called a coacervate droplet, developed by two researchers in Japan to represent the evolution of chemistry into biology. “Chemical evolution was first proposed in the 1920s as the idea that life ...

A clue to generate electric current without energy consumption at room temperature

05-Jan-2016

A group of researchers in Japan and China identified the requirements for the development of new types of extremely low power consumption electric devices by studying Cr-doped (Sb, Bi)2Te3 thin films. At extremely low temperatures, an electric current flows around the edge of the film without ...

Draw out of the predicted interatomic force

01-Sep-2015

Liquid Bi shows a peculiar dispersion of the acoustic mode, which is related to the Peierls distortion in the crystalline state. These results will provide valuable inspiration to researchers developing new materials in the nanotechnology field.Studies of the atomic dynamics in liquid Bi have ...

Ultra-thin, all-inorganic molecular nanowires successfully compounded

10-Jul-2015

Nanowires are wired-shaped materials with diameters that are tens of nanometers or less. There are many types of nanowires, including semiconducting composite nanowires, metal oxide composite nanowires, and organic polymer nanowires, and they are typically used in functional materials and devices ...

The Trap Snaps Shut

Researchers isolate the substance that causes Venus flytraps to close

11-Nov-2010

The Venus flytrap is a carnivorous plant luring insect prey with drops of liquid. The trap snaps shut like a steel jaw when an insect touches one of the very fine hairs within. The prey is caught – digestion begins. Minoru Ueda and a research team from the Universities of Tohoku, Hirosaki, and ...

How do your crystals grow?

16-Sep-2010

Because one of the main bottlenecks in determining the structure of protein molecules is producing good isolated single crystals, improved crystallization techniques would be useful in a wide range of genomics and pharmaceutical research. Research reported in The Journal of Chemical Physics uses ...
