Bisphenol A In Food Containers Has Adverse Effect On Brain Tissue

...ts in fetus. BPA molecules are linked to form polymers used in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins but these chemical linkage are unstable and the BPA leaches into the food that comes in contact with the plastic. The problem now associated with this low-dose effect is that deteriorating effect of ...

Food packaging with Bisphenol A damages the brain

...ctive functions,' 'BPA molecules are linked into polymers used to create polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins that are widely used in many products,' said Dr. Belcher. 'While plastics are typically thought of as being stable, scientists have known for many years that the chemical linkage between BPA mole...

PFCAs Detected in the Artic

Polymer Molecule Layered On Carb Molecule to Increase Sensitivity

...e in and come into contact with the enzymes." "The polymers trap the enzymes in place," Liu said. "You can go up to five or six layers to improve the sensitivity of the detector, but after that, the more enzyme layers" inhibit diffusion of the glucose. Now that the glucose enzyme biosensor has passed the te...

Solitons Could Power Molecular Electronics, Artificial Muscles

...harge through organic materials such as conducting polymers at the molecular level. "These extra electronic states will have an effect -- we just don't know right now if it will be for better or worse," he said. Li and his longtime collaborators from MIT published their findings in a recent issue of the ...

"The polymers that Kathryn Uhrich and her team have pioneered and developed are unique in that they can serve as barriers while also repressing any inflammatory response, setting the stage for nature to not only heal these areas, but also to regenerate the tissues...

Synthetic DNA Makes Better Hydrogels for Drug Delivery

...urposes are usually made from organic or inorganic polymers (molecules that form long chains), such as alginate from seaweed. Some have been made from proteins but none entirely from ordinary DNA. So far, all these processes have used organic solvents or acids or involve high temperatures, making conditions t...

Seal and his team created a specialized cerium oxide nanoparticle and bound it with a compound that has been shown to block the activity of an enzyme (hCAII) believed to play a central role in causing glaucoma. The dis...

Attempt to Build Artificial Muscles from Carbon Nanofibres in the Offing
