Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy 's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have reported the first fully integrated nanosystem for artificial photosynthesis.
Thiruvananthapuram, May 16 : To keep students abreast of the latest trends and developments in computational chemistry, Srinivasa Ramanujan Institute for Basic Sciences is organising a four-day national workshop on the subject here.
We present results of prebiotic organic synthesis in shock compressed mixtures of simple ices from quantum molecular dynamics simulations extended to close to equilibrium time scales.
An international team of physicists at the radioactive-beam facility ISOLDE at CERN have for the first time measured the ionization potential of the rare radioactive element astatine*. The value for astatine, published in the journal Nature Communications, could help chemists to develop applications for the element in radiotherapy, and will serve ... (more)
Ultrathin Ag2Mo3O10A 2H2O nanowires were synthesized by soft chemistry under atmospheric pressure from a hybrid organic-inorganic polyoxometalate 2[Mo7O22] and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, DSC/TGA analyses, FT-IR and FT-Raman spectroscopies, scanning electron microscopy , and transmission electron microscopy .
PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] - With obesity reaching epidemic levels in some parts of the world, scientists have only begun to understand why it is such a persistent condition.
Most people think of digging when they picture gold mining. That's part of it, but there's more to it than that.
Employees at McKee Lumber Co. in Corsicana, Texas , were discussing last month's deadly blast at a fertilizer plant 50 miles away one recent morning when talk turned to their neighbor: El Dorado Chemical Co .

Cells rely on garbage disposal systems to keep their interiors neat and tidy. If it weren't for these systems, cells could look like microscopic junkyards - and worse, they might not function properly.
Titan is probably one of the most interesting objects in the solar system. So why is Titan so cool? Titan really grabbed the attention of scientists after the Voyager spacecraft flew by it during the early 80s.
