Most of what we taste we actually smell. The only sensations that we pick up in our mouth are sweet, sour, bitter, umami and salty. Without its smell, coffee would have only a sour or bitter taste due to the organic acids. ...
Research from the University of Kentucky Department of Chemistry will help batteries resist overcharging, improving the safety of electronics from cell phones to airplanes.
"Bendy" light-emitting diode (LED) displays and solar cells crafted with inorganic compound semiconductor micro-rods are moving one step closer to reality, thanks to graphene and the work of a team of researchers in Korea.
The smell of cut grass in recent years has been identified as the plant's way of signalling distress, but new research says the aroma also summons beneficial insects to the rescue.
At the beginning of 2013 a greyish-brown blanket of smog lay over large areas of China for several months. The fine particle pollution was higher by 1 to 2 orders of magnitude than the levels normally measured in Western ...
Scientists are testing the 'stickiness' of hundreds of organic compounds to improve the detection of the microscopic water bugs that cause millions of cases of vomiting and diarrhoea each year.
EcoVerde removes odor and other contaminants through a biological process based on bacteria that feed on hydrogen sulfide
Despite significant reduction in smog-producing toxins, the Greater Toronto Area still violates ozone standards
Despite a significant reduction in smog-producing toxins in past decade, GTA still violates Canada's ozone standards
The development of new methods for preparing organic compounds is a fundamental aspect of research on new drugs and advanced materials. In many cases, the three-dimensional spatial arrangement of atoms in the synthesized ...
Eureka – it's Europa! And a brand-new image of it, too! (Well, kinda sorta.)
