The longest carbon nanotubes you've ever seen

... the new substrate--a catalyst made of alternating metal and ceramic layers atop an oxidized-silicon wafer base--which served as the foundation for growth. "This process is revolutionary because it allows us to keep the catalyst 'alive' for a long period of time thus, providing fast and continuous trans...

Study warns deep-sea mining may pose serious threat to fragile marine ecosystems

... growing rapidly, and along with the sharp rise in metal prices, we have seen the depletion of metal-rich terrestrial mines," says Halfar. "For mining companies and their investors, undersea mining offers high concentrations of ore at relatively low production costs." The mining operations will use a st...

Progress toward artificial photosynthesis?

... needed to split them. To date, only a few special metal catalysts are known to be capable of breaking the C–O bonds in CO2. In contrast to most previous approaches, Antonietti’s team worked with metal-free catalysts, turning toward plants for inspiration. Photosynthesis in modern green plants involves ...

Putting an old drug to a new use

...of its iron to make red blood cells. A lack of the metal can lead to dangerous anemias, but also too much iron can be detrimental as iron promotes the formation of toxic radicals leading to tissue damage. Iron overload is the consequence of one of the most common genetic disorders in Europe, hereditary hem...

Study to explore using magnets to correct 'sunken chest'

...to open and rebuild the chest and the insertion of metal struts to hold the chest in place while it heals. Complications can occur because the struts are under significant pressure, and the painful recovery can take months. "The problem with present techniques is that they attempt to reshape the chest w...

Trojan horse strategy defeats drug-resistant bacteria

...o accomplish this, the researchers used gallium, a metal very similar to iron. "Gallium acts as a Trojan horse to iron-seeking bacteria," said Singh. "Because gallium looks like iron, invading bacteria are tricked, in a way, into taking it up. Unfortunately for the bacteria, gallium can't function lik...

Researchers uncover protection mechanism of radiation-resistant bacterium

...sitive bacterial cells had significantly different metal concentrations, pointing to high levels of manganese and low iron levels as possible influences on cellular recovery following irradiation. The team showed that the most resistant bacterial species contained approximately 300 times more manganese and...

Ultrasound upgrade produces images that work like 3-D movies

...irst generated stereo ultrasound images of a small metal cage. They then advanced to ultrasound images in living animals of a heart valve and blood vessels and needle biopsies of the animals' brains and esophagi. The researchers have since recorded ultrasound images of a model human fetus that is tradit...

In presence of fragrant cleaning products, air purifiers that emit ozone can dirty the air

...particles and electrostatically attracting them to metal electrodes. Ozonolysis purifiers emit ozone at higher levels on purpose with the ostensible goal of oxidizing volatile organic compounds in the air. This research appeared online this morning in Environmental Science and Technology. "The public...

Research to spotlight carbon monoxide benefits

Carbon monoxide is an anti-inflammatory, and they want to explore its potential in treating high blood pressure, heart disease and possibly cancer. The project builds on...

'Hidden-hero' microbes in soil, water may help naturally clean toxic sites

"It affects not only the U.S. but in particular, also Eastern Europe, Canada and South America, and the cos...

Widely used iron nanoparticles exhibit toxic effects on neuronal cells

...noparticles with DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid), a metal binding agent that polymerizes on the particles' surface. This coating keeps the particles from clumping together in an aqueous solution, and facilitates their engulfment by the PC12 cells via an inward pouching of the cell membrane called endocytosi...

Researcher examines polymers created with poultry feathers

New UD technology removes viruses from drinking water

...ch more efficiently than those that didn't contain metal oxides. "We knew that iron had been used to treat a variety of pollutants in groundwater, but no one had tested iron against biological agents," Chiu said. So the two researchers decided to pursue some experiments. With partial support from the...
