Scientists develop probes to detect acute kidney failure early

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a type of imaging probe that allows for earlier detection of acute kidney failure, a rapidly-developing condition that can be fatal.

The chemistry that could feed life within Saturn's moon Enceladus

Saturn's 502km-diameter icy moon Enceladus has fascinated scientists since it was first seen up close by NASA's Voyager probes in the 1980s. The moon is venting plumes of ice particles into space including traces of methane, ...

A 'frozen reaction' as key to eco-friendly chemical catalysis

Enzymes are naturally existing biocatalysts of great potential for application in sustainable chemistry. Yet, controlling enzyme reactions at atomic level is still a challenge in biology. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute ...

Comet probe Rosetta detects the 'most wanted molecule'

ESA's Rosetta spacecraft has made the first measurement of molecular nitrogen at a comet, providing clues about the temperature environment in which Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko formed.
