Elemental Boron is an effective photothermocatalyst for the conversion of carbon dioxide
A "self-heating" boron catalyst that makes particularly efficient use of sunlight to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) serves as a light harvester, photothermal converter, hydrogen generator, and catalyst in one. Researchers introduce a photothermocatalytic reaction that requires no additives beyond ...
Physicists evaluated the quantum delayed-choice experiments for the first time
Physicists around Anton Zeilinger have, for the first time, evaluated the almost 100-year long history of quantum delayed-choice experiments – from the theoretical beginnings with Albert Einstein to the latest research works in the present. Since the 17th century, science was intrigued by the ...
The electromagnetic radiation discharged by electronic equipment and devices is known to hinder their smooth operation. Conventional materials used today to shield from incoming electromagnetic waves tend to be sheets of metal or composites, which rely on reflection as a shielding mechanism.But ...
A Chinese-U.S. research team is exploring the use of metamaterials -- artificial materials engineered to have exotic properties not found in nature -- to create devices that manipulate sound in versatile and unprecedented ways. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, the team reports a simple ...
A paper-based device that mimics the electrochemical signalling in the human brain has been created by a group of researchers from China. The thin-film transistor (TFT) has been designed to replicate the junction between two neurons, known as a biological synapse, and could become a key component ...
A self-protecting zeolite catalyst that degrades the carcinogens in cigarette smoke has been reported by scientists. The zeolite – which is prepared in a one-step hydrothermal crystallisation without any post treatment or shape direction – selectively breaks down tobacco specific nitrosamines ...
Scientists in China have made polymer gels that behave like artificial tongues. By measuring how the gels swell, bend and fluorescence, the researchers found that the gels selectively respond to and can distinguish between sourness (citric acid and gluconic acid), sweetness (glucose), saltiness ...
New computer simulations may help in the design of efficient molecular wires
Two types of trends can be identified in the length-dependent conductance of molecular wires, according to Chinese scientists. In an article published in ChemPhysChem, Jianwei Zhao and colleagues describe different length–conductivity relationships in molecular wires depending on the structures ...
Chemists at New York University and China's Nanjing University have developed a two-armed nanorobotic device that can manipulate molecules within a device built from DNA. The device is described in Nature Nanotechnology . "The aim of nanotechnology is to put specific atomic and molecular ...
