A technique that enables biologically active enzymes to survive the rigors of inkjet printing presents a promising alternative to routine blood screening finger jabs for diabetic blood sugar levels. The KAUST-led team used ...
Helpful microbes inhale carbon dioxide through a porous cylindrical electrode and exude useful chemicals
Microbes could become key allies in global efforts to curb carbon emissions and avoid dangerous climate change. A group of microbes called chemolithoautotrophs consume CO2 through their natural metabolism, spitting out small ...
Ultrafast video capture of droplet cloud formation should help minimize the risk of gas-leak explosions.
A more accurate way of resolving spatial patterns in weather could lead to better predictions of climate change
A divide and conquer approach, combined with some mathematical gymnastics, has helped KAUST researchers Ying Sun and Yuxiao Li to come up with a fast and flexible statistical scheme for improving the accuracy of climate-change ...
An inexpensive hydrogel-based material efficiently captures moisture even from low-humidity air and then releases it on demand.
A compound made from the glycerol by-product of biodiesel production could promote cleaner burning in vehicle engines.
The textbook directions for characterizing the wetting properties of solid surfaces are likely to change as KAUST researchers demonstrate that conventional tests can be misleading.
