More sustainable recycling of plastics

Plastics are among the most widely used materials, and they are vital components of all modern technologies. So far, it has been possible to recycle these valuable materials only to a limited extent. In order to offer novel ...

Supercomputer models describe chloride's role in corrosion

Researchers have been studying chloride's corrosive effects on various materials for decades. Now thanks to high-performance computers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego and the Texas Advanced Computing ...

New method uses artificial intelligence to study live cells

Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign have developed a new technique that combines label-free imaging with artificial intelligence to visualize unlabeled live cells over a prolonged time. This technique ...

Driving water splitting to create chemical fuels

The sun is an abundant source of renewable energy, which can be captured and converted into usable electricity. However, because the sun doesn't always shine, the supply of energy is not continuous. We need a way to store ...

Disposed PPE could be turned into biofuel, study shows

Plastic from used personal protective equipment (PPE) can, and should, be transformed into renewable liquid fuels—according to a new study, published in the peer-reviewed Taylor & Francis journal Biofuels.

Scientists develop way to track salmonella infection in real time

When bacteria like salmonella infect and sicken people, they hijack a person's cell proteins to develop a defense against an immune response. Understanding how that works and developing methods for defending against these ...

New study could revolutionize the way we recycle

Researchers from the University of Surrey together with colleagues from Germany, Spain and France are set to start work on a novel technique to tackle plastic waste, potentially revolutionizing the way we recycle. Engineered ...

Supercapacitors turbocharged by laxatives

An international team of scientists, including a professor of chemistry from the University of Bristol, has worked out a way to improve energy storage devices called supercapacitors, by designing a new class of detergents ...
