Obtaining structural information about a sample on an atomistic or molecular level under conditions that mimic natural conditions underground, in the deep ocean, and in chemical reactors is now possible, thanks to an innovative ...
This week, an international group of scientists is reporting a breakthrough in the effort to characterize the properties of graphene noninvasively while acquiring information about its response to structural strain.
In a great example of "less is more," Rice University scientists have developed a powerful method to analyze carbon nanotubes in solution.
Metabolism is essential for the maintenance of life, in organisms ranging from yeast to humans. To deepen understanding of metabolism and its role in diseases such as type 2 diabetes, Yale researchers have developed a new ...
Rice University scientists led a project to "see" and measure the space in porous materials, even if that space is too small or fragile for traditional microscopes.
Dr Elfrida Carstea discusses the FLUORO-BOOST project's findings on the potential of fluorescence spectroscopy for improving the energy efficiency of wastewater treatment works.
Scientists have caught a glimpse of the elusive toxic form of the Alzheimer's molecule, during its attempt to bore into the outer covering of a cell decoy, using a new method involving laser light and fat-coated silver nano-particles.
A major advance in solution phase soft-x-ray spectroscopy has been achieved utilizing a new liquid flatjet system, paving the way for novel steady-state and time-resolved experiments.
