Reconfigure Electronic Microchips May be a Reality

Reconfigure Electronic Microchips May be a Reality

Will it be possible one day to reconfigure electronic microchips however we want, even when they are in use? A recent discovery by a team at EPFL suggests as much. The researchers have demonstrated that it is possible to create conductive pathways several atoms wide in a material, to move them around at will and even to make them disappear. Their research is the subject of a recent article appearing in Nature Nanotechnology. [More]
Novel Transition Metal-Complexed CPPs Hold Promise for Constructing Unprecedented Nanocarbons

Novel Transition Metal-Complexed CPPs Hold Promise for Constructing Unprecedented Nanocarbons

Chemists at the Nagoya University in Japan have synthesized novel cycloparaphenylene (CPP) chromium complexes and have shown the possibility of using them for obtaining monofunctionalized CPPs, which could help construct nanocarbons with unprecedented structures. [More]
Negatively Charged Molecules Control the Where, When, and How of Calcium Carbonate Formation

Negatively Charged Molecules Control the Where, When, and How of Calcium Carbonate Formation

Nature packs away carbon in chalk, shells and rocks made by marine organisms that crystallize calcium carbonate. Now, research suggests that the soft, organic scaffolds in which such crystals form guide crystallization by soaking up the calcium like an "ion sponge," according to new work in Nature Materials. Understanding the process better may help researchers develop advanced materials for energy and environmental uses, such as for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. [More]
