Decomposition of textile products in the ground

Laboratory tests help with evaluation of environmental compatibility

11-Feb-2013

Like all organic materials, textiles will decompose under the influence of water and microorganisms in the ground. Under comparable environmental conditions, it depends mainly on the raw materials used whether the decomposition process takes place over the course of months, years, decades or even ...

A Bright Future for Silicon

Ordered nanocrystal arrays may provide a new platform to study and tailor the light-emitting properties of silicon

23-Nov-2012

US scientists at the University of Texas at Austin and Cornell University have fabricated the first ordered arrays of silicon nanocrystals reported to date. Brian A. Korgel and colleagues developed a new chemical method to generate tiny silicon crystals—or quantum dots—with precisely controlled ...

Turbo-Packed RNA

Turbo Reagent Allows Precise Synthesis of tRNA Nucleosides

08-Nov-2010

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a biologically important molecule that is very similar to DNA, the blueprint of life. Naturally occurring RNAs, such as transfer RNA (tRNA), contain modified building blocks (“nucleosides”), which are involved in decoding genetic information. Deazaguanosine nucleosides, ...
