At the beginning of 2013 a greyish-brown blanket of smog lay over large areas of China for several months. The fine particle pollution was higher by 1 to 2 orders of magnitude than the levels normally measured in Western ...
Scientists are testing the 'stickiness' of hundreds of organic compounds to improve the detection of the microscopic water bugs that cause millions of cases of vomiting and diarrhoea each year.
EcoVerde removes odor and other contaminants through a biological process based on bacteria that feed on hydrogen sulfide
Despite significant reduction in smog-producing toxins, the Greater Toronto Area still violates ozone standards
Despite a significant reduction in smog-producing toxins in past decade, GTA still violates Canada's ozone standards
The development of new methods for preparing organic compounds is a fundamental aspect of research on new drugs and advanced materials. In many cases, the three-dimensional spatial arrangement of atoms in the synthesized ...
Eureka – it's Europa! And a brand-new image of it, too! (Well, kinda sorta.)
For billions of years, bacteria move along using cilia. These propeling organelles are ubiquitous and they are even found in almost any human cell. Following the natural paragon scientists at the Kiel University constructed ...
Green spaces in towns and cities need extra consideration as they may be damaging buildings in the area, according to new research from the Universities of Southampton and Surrey.
Green-chemistry researchers at McGill University have discovered a way to use water as a solvent in one of the reactions most widely used to synthesize chemical products and pharmaceuticals.
The inhabitants of Central Europe spend about 80 percent of their lifetime in buildings. With elaborate ventilation systems, researchers have provided a pleasant climate in homes and offices.
