A research group jointly fabricated molecular motors on a metal substrate using supramolecules, and successfully reversed their rotation by rearranging bonding between molecules that constitute a supramolecule.
Rising temperatures may shift the gender balance of Mediterranean weevils in favour of females, said a study Wednesday into a bizarre consequence of global warming.
Swans and geese are the envy of aeronautical engineers. Even plump geese can perform remarkable aerial acrobatics – twisting their body and flapping their powerful wings while keeping their head completely still.

Treatments for cystic fibrosis (CF) have added years to the lives of thousands of Americans. But they can be difficult to administer, and most don't fix the underlying cause. Scientists have now found that a small molecule, ...
A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Indiana University combined two techniques to determine the structure of cyanostar, a new abiological molecule that captures unwanted negative ions in solutions.
Rice University chemists who developed a unique form of graphene have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles that turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications.
