Structure of a Molecular-Scale Circuit Component


At the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, researchers have determined the structure of an experimental, organic compound-based circuit component, called a "molecular electronic junction," that is only a few nanometers (billionths of a meter) in dimension. This study may ...

New testing strips for detecting heavy metals


Many heavy metals are toxic to the environment or to humans. Legal limits for these pollutants in drinking water and run-off are thus correspondingly low. Rapid on-the-spot analysis and routine water quality tests demand a rapid, cost-effective method that doesn't require complex instruments. ...


PPG to install membrane technology, eliminate use of mercury at Lake Charles, La.


PPG Industries will install membrane cell technology for the manufacture of chlor-alkali products at its chemicals plant in Lake Charles, La., replacing the facility's mercury cells by mid-2007, company officials announced. "Today's announcement represents a significant investment in the ...


Tandem ions may lead the way to better atomic clocks

NIST detects 'ticks' in aluminum, with help from intermediary atom


Physicists at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have used the natural oscillations of two different types of charged atoms, or ions, confined together in a single trap, to produce the "ticks" that may power a future atomic clock. As reported in the ...


Worlwide lead-free certification for electronics launched by IECQ


With legislation in the US on hazardous substances, including lead, in electronics already in place, and similar laws set to take effect in China and Europe shortly, how can electrical and electronic manufacturers be sure that their products meet the new limits being set? A new specification ...

An Exceptionally Effective Lead-Detection Protein

Results may inspire new treatments for lead poisoning


Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and the University of Chicago have discovered that a member of a well-known protein family is better at detecting lead than any other known substance. Learning more about the protein's structure and lead-detection ...


Spectroscopy for the Real World

New system used to analyze environmental, biological phenomena in their natural state


A team of scientists used a first-of-its-kind spectroscopy system at the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to obtain the first direct observations of negatively charged ions accumulating on the surfaces of salt solutions. Their work ...


Thermo Electron EstablishesNew Center of Excellence for Elemental Speciation Analysis at Pau University in France


Thermo Electron Corporation has concluded a collaboration agreement with the Biogeochemistry, Ultra Trace and Isotopic Analysis group at the University of Pau in France in order to create a Center of Excellence for speciated analysis techniques. This collaboration will establish, promote, ...


Akzo Nobel closes down chlorine production in Bohus, Sweden


Akzo Nobel has decided to stop production of chlorine at the Bohus site in Sweden, as of the end of 2005. The closure will affect about 150 jobs on the site. Akzo Nobel will negotiate the reduction of the workforce with labor unions. The dominant user of chlorine from the plant in Bohus is ...
