A technique to detect subcellular location of a protein has been developed by scientists. In science, “simple and accessible detection methods that can rapidly screen a large cell population with the resolution of a single cell inside that population has been seriously lacking,” said one engineer involved in the study. Their work involved a simple […]
A fuel cell catalyst that converts hydrogen into electricity must tear open a hydrogen molecule. Now researchers have captured a view of such a catalyst holding onto the two halves of its hydrogen feast, provides insight into how to make the catalyst work better.
This week The Alchemist sheds light on drug delivery, finds out how polymers can run cold and learns of a simple sensor for the "date rape drug" GHB. In the world of power, solar cells can now be turned into highly efficient lasers, we hear, while a way to roll up useful nanowires is developed […]
