The Scottish-born winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry took a jab Wednesday at US presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has bragged that he was "smart" to avoid paying taxes.
Molecular machines, which earned their inventors the Nobel Chemistry Prize on Wednesday, are a fraction of the width of a human hair but strong enough to move things 10,000 times their size.
A University of Cincinnati scientist has engineered an environmentally friendly technology to zap outbreak-causing viruses and bacteria from public drinking water.
It was the Softenon disaster that made the pharmaceutical industry fully aware of the importance of knowing the enantiomeric purity and chirality of drugs and their metabolites. This disaster involved the chiral drug Thalidomide ...
Researchers from University of Copenhagen have reviewed the use of NIR spectroscopy to detect food fraud in a special issue of the scientific journal Current Opinion in Food Science, which reports on food science innovation.
An interdisciplinary team of engineering and pharmaceutical researchers at the University of Alberta has invented a device that can rapidly identify harmful bacteria and can determine whether it is resistant to antibiotics.
Blood testing is the standard option for checking glucose levels, but a new technology could allow non-invasive testing via a contact lens that samples glucose levels in tears.
Researchers at the University of Bristol have designed a synthetic community of artificial cells that collectively displays a simple form of predatory behaviour.
A team of Whitehead Institute and Stanford University scientists are redefining what it means to be a prion—a type of protein that can pass heritable traits from cell to cell by its structure instead of by DNA.
Perovskites are promising materials that can be used in solar cells. TU Delft researchers have shed more light on what apparently makes these perovskites so suitable as solar cell material. They published their findings on ...
