Efficient catalyst for the light-driven methanation of CO2

Recycling carbon dioxide (CO2), especially through conversion to methane (CH4), is compelling while anthropogenic CO2 emissions are still rising. A useful process for this transformation is photothermal methanation, in which ...

Lighting hydrogels via nanomaterials

Hydrogels are commonly used inside the body to help in tissue regeneration and drug delivery. However, once inside, they can be challenging to control for optimal use. A team of researchers in the Department of Biomedical ...

Turning up the heat on antibacterial-resistant diseases

Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a proposed treatment for diseases like antibacterial-resistant infections and cancer, but despite over a decade of research, scientists have been unable to find a safe and effective chemical ...

Researchers demonstrate chemically sensitive LiDAR method

Researchers have developed a new laser-based technique that can simultaneously perform LiDAR and remote chemical measurements. LiDAR, which stands for light detection and ranging, uses a laser to measure distances, or ranges. ...

Scientists develop synergistic antibacterial carbon dots

The use of antibiotics helps fight bacterial infection, but the abuse of antibiotics has resulted in the emergence and widespread prevalence of "super bacteria," making the treatment of infectious diseases a worldwide problem ...
