Researchers Observe Molecular Russian Nesting Dolls for the First Time

Researchers Observe Molecular Russian Nesting Dolls for the First Time

Scientists at the University of Chicago have experimentally observed a quantum phenomenon known as geometric scaling in ultracold, triatomic three-atom molecules. The gigantic three-atom molecules fit inside each other like a set of Russian nesting dolls. [More]
Metal-Free Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization Process Uses Organic-Based Photocatalyst

Metal-Free Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization Process Uses Organic-Based Photocatalyst

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara and The Dow Chemical Company have collaborated to develop an innovative atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) process that may help overcome the hurdles that have so far prevented common use of controlled radical polymerization. The new process does not utilize metals. It uses an organic-based photocatalyst instead. [More]

Nitric Oxide Gas Stably Gift-Wrapped Within Metal-Organic Frameworks

Nitric Oxide Gas Stably Gift-Wrapped Within Metal-Organic Frameworks

A group of scientists led by researchers at the Université de Versailles' Institut Lavoisier in France has worked out how to stably gift-wrap a chemical gas known as nitric oxide within metal-organic frameworks. Such an encapsulated chemical may allow doctors to administer nitric oxide in a more highly controlled way to patients, suggesting new approaches for treating dangerous infections and heart conditions with the biologically-active substance.

Efficient Photocatalytic Water Purification Technology from Panasonic

Efficient Photocatalytic Water Purification Technology from Panasonic

In India, approximately 70 per cent of the population uses water not from taps but primarily that from under the ground. Leaching into it are harmful substances such as agrochemical residues, the arsenic of Himalayan ore veins, and hexavalent chromium produced from leather tanneries. This contamination has come to be seen as a societal problem, having caused health problems for as many as 50 million people. [More]
