Paper documents self-healing membrane for fuel cell applications Fuel cells, which offer a cleaner, more efficient alternative to the combustion of gasoline and other fossil fuels, are an important enabling technology for the nation’s energy portfolio.
Freiburger Forscher zeigen, wie eine molekulare Fassstruktur unterschiedliche Funktionen in Mitochondrien ausübt Freiburger Forscherinnen und Forscher haben entdeckt, dass das molekulare Fassprotein Mdm10 durch Anbindung an Proteinmaschinen unterschiedliche Funktionen für die Entstehung und Aufrechterhaltung der Struktur von Mitochondrien ausführen kann. … Continue reading →
Nanopores could provide a new way to sequence DNA quickly, but the physics involved isn’t well understood. That’s partly because of the complexities involved in studying the random, squiggly form DNA takes in solution. Researchers from Brown have simplified matters … Continue reading →
UD doctoral student studies ways to improve lithium battery performance Lithium batteries are used in many devices such as cell phones, computers and cameras, among others. University of Delaware doctoral student Wei-Fan Kuan is investigating ways to improve membranes used … Continue reading →
Engineering faculty and students at the University of Colorado Boulder have produced the first experimental results showing that atomically thin graphene membranes with tiny pores can effectively and efficiently separate gas molecules through size-selective sieving. The findings are a significant … Continue reading →
Berkeley Scientists Create Graphene Liquid Cells for Electron Microscopy Studies of Nanocrystal Formation They won’t be coming soon to a multiplex near you, but movies showing the growth of platinum nanocrystals at the atomic-scale in real-time have blockbuster potential. A … Continue reading →
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has signed a $1.18 million agreement with the Flatley Discovery Lab in Charlestown, Mass., to investigate and supply marine microbial extracts as possible treatments for cystic fibrosis (CF). The life-shortening respiratory disease has eluded … Continue reading →
Cell-penetrating peptides, such as the HIV TAT peptide, are able to enter cells using a number of mechanisms, from direct entry to endocytosis, a process by which cells internalize molecules by engulfing them. Further, these cell-penetrating peptides, or CPPs, can … Continue reading →
