Fungal compound deodorizes skunk smell

29-Jul-2019

Being sprayed by a skunk is no fun for people or their pets, and the strong, stinky secretions can serve as a nasty reminder of the wildlife encounter for days or weeks. Available "de-skunking" formulas often either don't work well or can irritate the skin and eyes. Now, researchers reporting in ...

Self-organizing molecules: Nanorings with two sides

26-Jul-2019

The tiny rings that chemists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) create in the laboratory are as small as a bacterium. Self-organized, individual polymer chains form the flexible structures that can even squeeze themselves through cell membranes. ...

ELSI scientists discover new chemistry that may help explain the origins of cellular life

Chemists find simplest organic molecules can self-assemble to give cell-like structures under early Earth conditions

25-Jul-2019

Before life began on Earth, the environment likely contained a massive number of chemicals that reacted with each other more or less randomly, and it is unclear how things as complex as cells could have emerged from such chemical chaos. Now, a team led by Tony Z. Jia of the Earth-Life Science ...

Water solutions without a grain of salt

Monash University researchers have developed technology that can deliver clean water to thousands of communities worldwide

25-Jul-2019

An estimated 844 million people don't have access to clean water, while every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by lack of safe water and an unclean environment. Seawater desalination and wastewater recycling are two ways to ease the problem of water shortage, but conventional ...

Towards a light driven molecular assembler

Chemists at Kiel University built the first artificial molecular machines that performs synthesis

25-Jul-2019

Chemists usually synthesize molecules using stochastic bond-forming collisions of the reactant molecules in solution. Nature follows a different strategy in biochemical synthesis. The majority of biochemical reactions are driven by machine-type protein complexes that bind and position the ...

Scientists from Samara Polytech learned to control the oil lens

24-Jul-2019

Reconstruction of factories (the construction of modern parks and the removal of communications on racks) significantly prevents the penetration of petroleum products into the ground. However, wastes, accumulated as a result of the activities of oil refineries, continue to have a negative impact ...

Lots of lead in the water? Maybe manganese is to blame

Researchers have found the naturally occurring mineral can speed up the production of lead dioxide under certain circumstances

24-Jul-2019

Manganese is not a particularly toxic mineral. In fact, people need a little in their diets to remain healthy. Research at Washington University in St. Louis has shown however, that in conjunction with certain other chemicals, naturally occurring manganese can lead to big changes in the water in ...

Search for new semiconductors heats up with gallium oxide

24-Jul-2019

University of Illinois electrical engineers have cleared another hurdle in high-power semiconductor fabrication by adding the field's hottest material - beta-gallium oxide - to their arsenal. Beta-gallium oxide is readily available and promises to convert power faster and more efficiently than ...
