A powerful new material developed by Northwestern University chemist William Dichtel and his research team could one day speed up the charging process of electric cars and help increase their driving range.
A well-known family of natural compounds, called "terpenoids," have a curious evolutionary origin. In particular, one question relevant to future drug discovery has puzzled scientists: exactly how does Nature make these molecules?
Hokkaido University researchers have synthesised a uniquely structured platinum-based superconducting material.
When we reach the end of a ketchup bottle, there's always a little left, stuck to the sides. A Colorado State University lab offers a fix: a nontoxic, nonstick coating that lets loose every last drop.
Researchers at Hiroshima University, CNRS, and Université de Strasbourg synthesized crystals with magnetic properties that can change continuously and reversibly, a world first. The study was highlighted as a cover article ...
Thanks to a reaction that resembles a sort of proton pinball game, a thin layer of moisture on the surface of a catalysts can improve the efficiency of fuel cells, devices used to transform chemical energy (a fuel like hydrogen, ...
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued one of the world's most intricate measurement standards: an exhaustively analyzed antibody protein that the biopharmaceutical industry will use to help ...
Rice University scientists who analyze the properties of materials as small as a single molecule have encountered a challenge that appears at very low temperatures.
The old rules don't necessarily apply when building electronic components out of two-dimensional materials, according to scientists at Rice University.
Rice University researchers have developed gas biosensors to "see" into soil and allow them to follow the behavior of the microbial communities within.
