Bottom-up synthesis of tunable carbon nanoribbons provides a new route to enhance industrial, automotive reactions.
Measuring 32 atoms, Canadian scientists have created a maple leaf 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
Building transient electronics is usually about doing something to make them stop working: blast them with light, soak them with acid, dunk them in water.
A team of researchers has found a way to detect trace gases down to concentrations at the parts-per-quadrillion level using a new variation on the photoacoustic effect, a technique that measures the sound generated when light interacts with molecules.
Coating of individual bacterial cells with an electron-conducting polymer provides for a high-performance anode for microbial fuel-cell applications.
Scientists have, for the first time, imaged molecular structures vital to how a major class of viruses replicates within infected cells.
For the first time ever, astronomers say they’ve been able to observe and measure the orbital motion between two supermassive black holes hundreds of millions of light years from Earth – a discovery more than a decade in the making.
A diagnostic technique that can detect tiny molecules signalling the presence of cancer could be on the horizon.
The silver nanowires are held together in the polymer so that they touch, and as long as the polymer doesn’t dissolve, the nanowires will form a path to conduct electricity similar to the traces on a circuit board.
Materials scientists and bioelectrochemical engineers may have created an innovative, cost-competitive electrode material for cleaning pollutants in wastewater.
