Hierarchical self-assembly of supramolecular muscle-like fibers

The macroscopic movement of our muscles is caused by the collective movement of "biomolecular motors". Scientists and engineers have long been trying to imitate this process. French scientists have now come a good way closer ...

Smart supercapacitor fiber with shape memory

Wearing your mobile phone display on your jacket sleeve or an EKG probe in your sports kit are not off in some distant imagined future. Wearable "electronic textiles" are on the way. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Chinese ...

Bengamide antitumor agent displaying antiproliferative potency

Scientists from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Germany have identified a terrestrial myxobacterium as a promising source for the bengamide class of natural products, which were originally thought to be secondary ...

Enzymatic micromotor-driven CO2 sequestration in water

Rapid decontamination of an aqueous solution by a freely moving microscrubber: this scenario has been realized by American scientists for the sequestration of CO2 from water. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, they introduce ...

Simple separation process for neodymium and dysprosium

Rare-earth metals are critical components of electronic materials and permanent magnets. Recycling of consumer products is a promising source for these rare commodities. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, American scientists ...
