First machine-generated chemistry book published

Cooperation between Applied Computational Linguistics lab of Goethe University and Springer Nature

16-Apr-2019

Springer Nature published its first machine-generated book, compiled using an algorithm developed by researchers from Goethe University. This collaboration broke new ground with the first machine-generated book to be published by a scholarly publisher. The book is available as a free download ...

Is there something up with stinky inflatable pool toys?

Potentially hazardous substances identified in four inflatable toys

21-Apr-2017

Inflatable toys and swimming aids, like bathing rings and arm bands, often have a distinctive smell which could indicate that they contain a range of potentially hazardous substances. Some of these compounds, which include carbonyl compounds, cyclohexanone, phenol and isophorone, might be ...

The secrets of vibration-enhanced conductivity in graphene

13-Mar-2017

Graphene, the one-atom-thick material made of carbon atoms, still holds some unexplained qualities, which are important in connection with electronic applications where high-conductivity matters, ranging from smart materials that collectively respond to external stimuli in a coherent, tunable ...

Smart multi-layered magnetic material acts as an electric switch

02-Mar-2017

The nanometric-size islands of magnetic metal sporadically spread between vacuum gaps display unique conductive properties under a magnetic field. In a recent study published in EPJ Plus, Anatoliy Chornous from Sumy State University in Ukraine and colleagues found that the vacuum gaps impede the ...

How water can split into two liquids below zero

Possibility of two coexisting liquid states in sub-zero water

27-Jan-2017

Did you know that water can still remain liquid below zero degrees Celsius? It is called supercooled water and is present in refrigerators. At even smaller temperatures, supercooled water could exist as a cocktail of two distinct liquids. Unfortunately, the presence of ice often prevents us from ...

Ruby red improves in the microwave oven

07-Mar-2016

Researchers from India’s CSIR - Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT) have tested a new way to improve the colour, clarity and lustre of rubies: microwaves. Rubies are among the world’s most popular precious gemstones, and are also used in high power switches and sensors. Most ...

Conductor turned insulator amid disorder

07-Dec-2015

Some materials that are inherently disordered display unusual conductivity, sometimes behaving like insulators and sometimes like conductors. Physicists have now analysed the conductivity in a special class of disordered materials. Martin Puschmann from the Technical University Chemnitz, Germany, ...

Trapping climate pollutant methane gas in porous carbon

07-Dec-2015

As talks of global warming are once again making headlines, scientists have renewed their efforts to understand how to best limit its effects. For example, sequestrating short-lived climate pollutants, such as methane and black carbon, yields much faster reductions in global warming compared to ...

Liquid foam: Plastic, elastic and fluid

02-Dec-2015

What differentiates complex fluids from mere fluids? What makes them unique is that they are neither solid nor liquid. Among such complex fluids are foams. They are used as a model to understand the mechanisms underlying complex fluids flow. Now, a team of French physicists has gained new ...

Surfing over simulated ripples in graphene

22-Sep-2015

The single-carbon-atom-thick material, graphene, featuring ripples is not easy to understand. Instead of creating such ripples physically, physicists investigating this kind of unusually shaped material rely on a quantum simulator. It is made up of an artificial lattice of light - called ...
