Probing the magnetic properties of solid oxygen

(PhysOrg.com) -- "Many scientists, like me, have an interest in the simplest molecules," Stefan Klotz tells PhysOrg.com. "These simple molecules, like water, nitrogen and oxygen, are in quite of the lot of stuff around us, ...

Developing a new approach for building quantum computers

Quantum computing, though still in its early days, has the potential to dramatically increase processing power by harnessing the strange behavior of particles at the smallest scales. Some research groups have already reported ...

How some tissues can 'breathe' without oxygen

Humans need oxygen molecules for a process called cellular respiration, which takes place in our cells' mitochondria. Through a series of reactions called the electron transport chain, electrons are passed along in a sort ...

A major addition to chemists' toolkit for building new molecules

Chemists at Scripps Research have solved a long-standing problem in their field by developing a method for making a highly useful and previously very challenging type of modification to organic molecules. The breakthrough ...

Untangling a key step in photosynthetic oxygen production

Photosystem II is a protein complex in plants, algae and cyanobacteria that is responsible for splitting water and producing the oxygen we breathe. Over the past few years, an international collaboration between scientists ...
