  • LED-ing the way: A clean and convenient method to oxidize plastic surfaces for industry

    Polypropylene (PP) is everywhere, being one of the most widely used plastics in human life. A versatile material, its naturally inert surface can be modified for specific applications. Researchers at Osaka University have now developed a convenient light-driven process for oxidizing PP without harmf more

  • How ice particles promote the formation of radicals

    Certain molecules with fluorine, chlorine or bromine, together with water, can release harmful substances into the atmosphere. The production of chlorofluorocarbons, which damage the ozone layer, has been banned as far as possible. However, other substances can also tear holes in the ozone layer in more

  • Radical approach for brighter LEDs

    Scientists have discovered that semiconducting molecules with unpaired electrons, termed 'radicals' can be used to fabricate very efficient organic-light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), exploiting their quantum mechanical 'spin' property to overcome efficiency limitations for traditional, non-radical mater more

  • Interesting Health Promoters

    There is barely a class of compounds among the secondary metabolites of plants that is so prominently represented in our lives as that of the flavonoids. They are found in ­numerous food substances in various oxidation states, and principally as glycosides (Fig. 1). By consuming fruit, vegetables and grains, we take in significant quantities of these compounds, which are characterised by phenolic structural elements, every day. more
