Captain Birdseye’s robotic nose


The Captain can’t freeze smelly fish that’s past its best – and Icelandic scientists can now help him out by detecting the levels of stench-making bacteria faster than ever before. The research in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Journal of Environmental Monitoring reports a new method to detect ...

Photoluminescent well-organised films


Takayoshi Sasaki and colleagues at the National Institute of Materials Science, Tsukuba, and co-workers from the University of Tsukuba, Japan have prepared rare earth hydroxide films by trapping micrometer-sized crystals at a hexane-water interface and then transferring them to a substrate. The ...

Hawaiian scientists take their test tubes surfing


Chemists have traded their white coats for swim shorts at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu – they've shunned the lab so they can swim out to the breakers with a test-tube built into a boogie-board. The glorious sunshine and the Pacific Ocean provide the perfect conditions for Robert Liu and ...

Marine natural product synthesis


Ian Paterson and Natalie Miller from Cambridge University have developed an 18 step synthesis, which incorporates a Jacobsen hetero Diels-Alder reaction as the key step. This produces the marine product in an overall 5.8% yield. Neopeltolide is a structurally complex marine natural product that ...


Halo should be new name for collider, says public

The one Ring to find them all


After massive, worldwide public response, with its media office deluged by thousands of entries, the RSC has chosen the winner of its competition to suggest a new, inspiring name for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN: Halo. Fed up with the contrived acronyms that plague the world of science, the ...

New synthetic route to oxindoles


Peter Kündig and colleagues from Geneva University, Switzerland and Stephen Marsden and co-workers at the University of Leeds, in the UK, have developed an asymmetric Pd/N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) - catalysed intramolecular -arylation of amide enolates, containing heteroatom sustituents. This ...


Electronic tongue tastes wine variety, vintage

Rapid, portable detection of wine composition could preserve quality and stop fraud


You don't need a wine expert to identify a '74 Pinot Noir from Burgundy - a handheld "electronic tongue" devised by European scientists will tell you the grape variety and vintage at the press of a button. Designed for quality control in the field, the device is made up of six sensors which ...


Arsenic-containing lipids in fish oil


Scientists have identified a novel group of arsenic-containing compounds in fish oil that may have an unusual biosynthetic origin. Kevin Francesconi at Karl-Franzens University, Graz, Austria, and colleagues found three arsenic-containing lipids in the oil from capelin fish found in the North ...


Multicolour lights in a single solid


Chinese researchers have developed multicoloured lights in a single solid as an alternative to traditional tricolour mixing approaches. Guangshe Li and colleagues at the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, in China, have successfully prepared novel core/shell CaWO4 micron ...


New Micro Fuel Cell: Scientists from Hong Kong have made a micro fuel cell using a zeolite membrane


Siu Ming Kwan and King Lun Yeung from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have made an inorganic zeolite proton-exchange micromembrane and assembled it into a workable micro fuel cell. Yeung explains that this is the first time that a nanoporous zeolite membrane has been studied ...
