Scientists in Switzerland have developed a protective coating for seeds that poisons pests with cyanide when they bite into it.
The coating is a system of two layers and only becomes toxic when the layers are mixed, eliminating the problem of environmental contamination that is associated w ... more
Scientists in France have produced hematite using a bacterial pathway for use as an electrode material in Li-ion technologies.
Currently, most commercial electrode materials for Li-ion technologies are prepared using the ceramic method, which requires long heating periods at high temperatur ... more
An international research team has shown that that the power conversion efficiency of sea tangle extract is comparable to platinum in solar cell electrodes.
Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) are quickly becoming a widespread and affordable alternative to photovoltaic solar cells. The electr ... more
