Playground paints should be monitored to reduce potential danger to public health


Playground equipment should be monitored more regularly to ensure toxic metals contained within paints do not present a danger to public and child health, a study recommends. Environmental scientists from Plymouth University analysed the metallic content of paints on equipment at almost 50 ...


A nanoscale look at why a new alloy is amazingly tough


Just in time for the icy grip of winter: A team of researchers led by scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has identified several mechanisms that make a new, cold-loving material one of the toughest metallic alloys ever. The alloy is made of chromium, ...

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


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 ...

New NIST metamaterial gives light a one-way ticket


The light-warping structures known as metamaterials have a new trick in their ever-expanding repertoire. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a silver, glass and chromium nanostructure that can all but stop visible light cold in one direction while ...


Authorisation to use a substance of very high concern


The application, from Rolls-Royce plc., is for specific uses of DEHP (Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate) within the manufacture of aero engines. This is the first application for authorisation to use an SVHC to be processed by ECHA. Industry can apply for authorisation to use an SVHC listed on the REACH ...

Disorder creates rust protection

A material’s nanostructure is decisive in determining how resistant it is against corrosion


Corrosion eats away 75 billion euros of economic output annually in Germany alone. But it may soon be possible to better assess which steels and other alloys will be affected, and how to limit the damage: An international team led by scientists from the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH ...


Troubling levels of toxic metals found in lipstick


A new analysis of the contents of lipstick and lip gloss may cause you to pause before puckering. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley's School of Public Health tested 32 different lipsticks and lip glosses commonly found in drugstores and department stores. They detected lead, ...


ECHA launches public consultation on restricting chromium (VI) in leather articles


A public consultation of the restriction proposalon chromium (VI) in leather articles has been discussed in ECHA's Committees for Risk Assessment (RAC) and Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC). RAC adopted its opinion concluding that there is currently a risk from chromium (VI) in leather articles. ...
