  • A new method for the functionalization of graphene
    An international research team involving Professor Federico Rosei of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has demonstrated a novel process to modify the structure and propertie...




  • Accelerating analysis for designer drugs
    Designer drugs - drugs that are similar in effect, but slightly different in structure, to existing drugs - are an increasing problem for regulators and lawmakers, and a real threat to society. The...
  • Surprising new behaviour in gels
    "Imagine putting a brick next to a stone and finding that the brick was moving into the stone, and vice versa" - this is how Professor David Smith of the University of York describes his latest pie...
  • On the trail of chemical bonds
    Professor Paul Popelier is a computational and theoretical chemist at the University of Manchester. He spoke about a chemical concept called bond order, and explains how his research in this area w...
  • A new way to detect bacterial activity using gold nanoparticles
    "Bacteria exist everywhere in an average person's daily life, and they usually develop into biofilms - a society of bacteria," explains Dr Huangxian Ju, director of the State Key Laboratory of Anal...
  • Caging greenhouse gases
    Porous materials could be used in everything from drug delivery to capturing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. A new study looks at how to make these materials even more efficient, bringing the...
  • Insight into catalysis through novel study of X-ray absorption spectroscopy
    An international team has made a breakthrough at BESSY II. For the first time, they succeeded in investigating electronic states of a transition metal in detail and drawing reliable conclusions on ...
  • Nanoscale solution to 'produced water' problem
    Oil and water tend to separate, but they mix well enough to form stable oil-in-water emulsions in produced water from oil reservoirs to become a problem. Rice University scientists have developed a...




  • Harnessing the possibilities of the nanoworld
    The laws of thermodynamics govern the behaviour of large, bulk materials in the macro world, while quantum mechanics describes behaviour of particles at the other extreme, in the world of single at...
