Researchers from EPFL and the University of Lausanne have examined the characteristics of biocement formation using a chip that was initially created for environmental science. In some instances, this material could take the place of conventional cement binders in civil engineering.
A paper recently published in the journal Biomaterials Advances demonstrated the effectiveness of a novel near-infrared (NIR) photothermal injectable hydrogel with anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation properties in treating skin defects.
In an article recently published in the journal Biomaterials, researchers discussed the development of hydrogel microcapsules containing modified microbes for long-term protein drug synthesis and release.
CO2 photoreduction into a transportable fuel like formic acid (HCOOH) is an excellent strategy to combat growing CO2 levels in the environment.
Scientists from the US have presented research into the use of hydrogen blended with natural gas as a bridging energy to achieve long-term carbon neutrality. This strategy could potentially help meet net-zero targets whilst still ensuring energy security in the short term. Their review study has appeared in the journal Energies.
