3-D-printed corals could improve bioenergy and help coral reefs

Researchers from Cambridge University and University of California San Diego have 3-D printed coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. Their results, reported in the journal ...

Engineered enzyme able to break down PET in ten hours

A team of researchers from TBI, Université de Toulouse, CRITT Bio-Industries and Carbios, Biopôle Clermont Limagne, has engineered a commonly known enzyme to efficiently break the chains that hold the building blocks of ...

Unwinding the mystery of degraded reel-to-reel tapes

Crooner Bing Crosby knew a thing or two about sound. In 1947, recognizing that recorded music sounded better on magnetic reel-to-reel tape than on vinyl records, he invested in a company to develop equipment to record his ...

Team develops foldable and washable luminescent film

Infrared radiation, which is invisible yet highly utilizable, is used in various fields and for various purposes, such as for coronavirus detection (i.e. through thermal imaging cameras and biosensors). A Korean research ...

Adulterated argan oil uncovered through new analytical method

Researchers from the Quadram Institute have developed a new way to test the authenticity of argan oil, one of the world's most expensive edible oils. In recent years, it has become sought after as an ingredient in cosmetics ...

Film photosensitizer: Highly efficient singlet oxygen generation

Photosensitized generation of singlet oxygen has attracted a great deal of interest reaching applications in various fields owing to its high biological activity and strong oxidation, including organic synthesis, wastewater ...

Tiny polymer springs give a boost to environmental cleanup

A study from Sujit Datta's lab, led by graduate student Christopher Browne, found that a promising class of cleaning solutions behave in ways that both confound traditional fluid models and explain their usefulness to remediation ...

Transforming wastewater byproducts into sustainable green fuels

A huge quantity of organic waste from various sectors either ends up in landfills or gets incinerated, further increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and soil and water pollution. To address this issue, it's crucial to ...
