In the movie "Transformers," cars morph into robots, jets or a variety of machinery.
Tiny fibrils derived from plants have gained considerable attention. Such nanomaterials have exhibited great potential in outshining plastics, and even substituting them.
Cohesion, the ability to keep things together, from the scale of nanoparticles to building sites is inherent to these nanofibrils, which can act as mortar to a nearly infinite type of particles as described in the study.
When a tumor enters in the stage of regression and the patient is considered as healed, there often remains the fear of recurrence, a disease that unfortunately has a certain incidence.
Since Robert Hooke's first description of a cell in Micrographia 350 years ago, microscopy has played an important role in understanding the rules of life.
A team of researchers from Empa, ETH Zurich and Zurich University Hospital has succeeded in developing a novel sensor for detecting the new coronavirus. In future it could be used to measure the concentration of the virus in the environment -- for example in places where there are many people or in hospital ventilation systems.
As instances of antibiotic resistance increase in the medical field, scientists are reexamining natural materials for their potential use in medicine. Honey has been used for thousands of years, from the time of Pharaohs for their effectiveness in treating wounds and burns.
A new technology studied by researchers at Kazan Federal University could be beneficial for the hair cosmetics industry and drug delivery.
Cellulose nanofibers derived from spent coffee grounds were carefully analyzed by scientists from Yokohama National University (YNU), who have identified them as a viable new source of raw material.
Porvair Sciences has introduced Microlute™ SLE 96-well plates and cartridges to enable you to quickly and easily extract a wide range of acidic, basic and neutral analytes from samples with greater reproducibility.
