Survey finds silver contamination in North Pacific waters

...ur," Luoma said. In San Francisco Bay, silver and copper from industrial discharges reached such high levels in the 1970s and early 1980s that clams stopped reproducing and some species of invertebrates disappeared from mudflats, he said. At that time, silver concentrations in the bay were 100 times higher...

NASA probe could reveal comet life, scientists claim

... include organic matter, they suggest. The mainly copper projectile will hit the comet at 25,000 miles per hour and will penetrate 15-20 metres into the surface before exploding. The comet will remain intact despite losing a huge amount of material ?100,000 tonnes from a 100 metre diameter crater, and the ...

Proteomics brings researchers closer to understanding microbes that produce acid mine drainage

...08 degree Fahrenheit runoff containing zinc, iron, copper and arsenic. "This system is a very tightly coupled biogeochemical system, and we are just trying to find out how it works," she said. "This microbial community is thriving at the extreme edge," added co-author Bob Hettich, a member of ORNL's Chemi...

Old drug shows new promise for Huntington's Disease

... is, it binds metals in body tissues, particularly copper and zinc, and removes them when it is excreted. Massa and other researchers believe that this chelation effect may interfere with production of the mutant huntingtin protein in some way. "But there are still a couple of explanations we need to rule o...

Health benefits of a Christmas brandy

...ants contained in the brandy that come mainly from copper during the distilling process, Dr Troup said. He said a shot (30mls) of brandy would give the equivalent antioxidant potential to the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. "The antioxidants only make up only a small percentage of substances found ...

Researchers: Treated wood poses long-term threat

...niversity examined arsenic leaching from chromated copper arsenate, or CCA-treated wood, from a real deck as well as from simulated landfills. Their conclusion: The deck wood leached high levels of arsenic into rainwater runoff and the soil -- and treated wood only continued leaching arsenic while sitting ...

Nanotubes used for first time to send signals to nerve cells

... as dense, able to conduct electricity better than copper or to substitute for silicon in semiconductor chips, carbon nanotubes have been proposed as the basis for everything from elevator cables that could lift payloads into Earth orbit to computers smaller than human cells. Thin films of carbon nanotube...

Researchers create artificial enzyme that mimics the body's internal engine

...organic molecule called phenol, an iron atom and a copper atom. Working together, these three centers provide the four electrons necessary to transform oxygen into water. "How all four electrons are added to oxygen has always been mysterious," Collman said. "Very few people study it. It's quite complex, and...
