The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2010 given to three scientists

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2010 to Richard F. Heck, Ei-ichi Negishi and Akira Suzuki "for palladium-catalyzed cross couplings in organic synthesis"


Organic chemistry has developed into an art form where scientists produce marvelous chemical creations in their test tubes. Mankind benefits from this in the form of medicines, ever-more precise electronics and advanced technological materials. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2010 awards one of the ...


New nano-tool synthesized at Scripps Research Institute

'Ouroborand' molecular switch resembles a tail-eating lizard


Two chemists at The Scripps Research Institute have synthesized a new nano-scale scientific tool — a tiny molecular switch that turns itself on or off as it detects metallic ions in its immediate surroundings. Featured on the cover of the International Edition of the journal Angewandte Chemie, ...

Enzyme design with remote effects

Chemists in Mülheim devise a new way of optimising enzymes for industrial applications


Engineers are unlikely to tinker with the cooling system if they want to increase the size of an engine. Yet chemists at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research have adopted an approach similar to this in their efforts to optimise an enzyme for practical applications. They substituted two ...


Tiny test tube experiment shows reaction of melting materials at the nano scale


Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have conducted a basic chemistry experiment in what is perhaps the world's smallest test tube, measuring a thousandth the diameter of a human hair. The nano-scale test tube is so small that a high-power electron microscope was required to see the ...

Fitting pieces for biosensors


Research and industry are increasingly exploiting the potential of aptamers. As well as their application in research, medical diagnosis and treatment, aptamers are also interesting as a basis for biosensors for use in environmental analysis because their characteristics enable them to identify ...

Hawaiian scientists take their test tubes surfing


Chemists have traded their white coats for swim shorts at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu – they've shunned the lab so they can swim out to the breakers with a test-tube built into a boogie-board. The glorious sunshine and the Pacific Ocean provide the perfect conditions for Robert Liu and ...


New rapid technique detects food bacteria

CU researchers announce new technique for rapidly detecting illness-causing bacteria in food


Cornell University scientists have developed a rapid, less costly and sensitive new technique for detecting group A streptococcus, the bacteria that cause scarlet fever. Details will be announced today at the Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Food Expo in New Orleans. The ...
