South Dakota State University assistant professor Anamika Prasad is making history.
Cups, cartons and food wrappers made of paper might seem like they would be biodegradable, but many contain a plastic coating that can't be composted.
Lee Solomon, Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and his collaborators are developing a blood substitute made from a novel peptide material which binds heme B-;the same protein cofactor found in human hemoglobin.
The natural ability of wood has been harnessed by researchers to slightly glow to develop a new sustainable phosphorescent material. This material can possibly be utilized in various applications, right from medical imaging and optical sensing to “glow in the dark” dyes and paints.
New solvent mixtures developed by researchers from the Institute of Science and Engineering at Kanazawa University help break down the hard structure of plant cellulose for bioethanol production.
Mayo Clinic researchers and colleagues at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a rapid-sealing paste that can stop bleeding organs independent of clotting.
Michael Kessler has worked with polymers that repair themselves when they crack. And he's worked with polymers made from vegetable oils. Now he's working to combine the two technologies.
Scientists of the MIPT Cell Signaling Regulation Laboratory have developed a new low cost reproducible system for the co-cultivation of cells.
Carbon dioxide is regarded as one of the primary contributors to climate change, which implies that CO2 emission needs to be controlled in the future. Scientists from Fraunhofer are projecting a potential method to reduce these emissions.
Green manufacturing is currently transforming into a highly vital process among industries, fueled by increasing awareness of adverse health and environmental impacts linked with conventional practices.
