In a study that used inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry to mimic respiratory droplets that can carry viruses, researchers demonstrated a mechanism that enables multiple mask materials to be protective.
A University of Nebraska–Lincoln researcher is one step closer to developing a new kind of transistor chip that harnesses the biological responses of living organisms to drive current through the device.
A research study important for the world science has been conducted by scientists of South Ural State University (SUSU) jointly with their colleagues from other research institutes.
At the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, a group of researchers has shone new light on molecules that tend to alter their shape in response to light.
Scott Chambers creates layered structures of thin metal oxide films and studies their properties, creating materials not found in nature.
If the properties of materials can be reliably predicted, then the process of developing new products for a huge range of industries can be streamlined and accelerated.
Analytical chemists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a rapid way to measure isotopic ratios of uranium and plutonium collected on environmental swipes, which could help International Atomic Energy Agency analysts.
Toxic chemicals hit upon during Sensitive Site Explorations (SSEs), Improvised Explosive devices (IEDs) or powerful synthetic opioids (e.g., fentanyl) can be lethal threats to the lives of first responders and military personnel.
Researchers have developed a new technique for revealing defects in nanostructured vanadium oxide, a widely used transition metal with many potential applications including electrochemical anodes, optical applications, and supercapacitors.
One can easily see with the naked eye that leaving an old nail out in the rain causes rust.
