Picturing pain could help unlock its mysteries and lead to better treatments


Understanding the science behind pain, from a simple “ouch” to the chronic and excruciating, has been an elusive goal for centuries. But now, researchers are reporting a promising step toward studying pain in action. In a study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, scientists ...


Artificial tongue made from polymer gel


Scientists in China have made polymer gels that behave like artificial tongues. By measuring how the gels swell, bend and fluorescence, the researchers found that the gels selectively respond to and can distinguish between sourness (citric acid and gluconic acid), sweetness (glucose), saltiness ...


A tattoo to monitor health


A sensor to be injected into the skin just like a tattoo that measures sodium concentrations in the blood has been developed by US scientists. The sensor could be used to monitor diseases or warn against dangerously low sodium levels during exercise. Scientists report in Integrative Biology that ...


Dionex Demonstrates Simultaneous Determination of Anions and Cations in Saline and Drinking Water Matrices


Dionex announced a new method that easily resolves common anions and cations present in saline and drinking water in 20 min. Application Note 260: Monitoring Inorganic Anions and Cations During Desalination demonstrates that the IonPac® AS18 and CS12A columns allow sample analysis with minimal ...


Nanoparticles for Cultural Heritage Conservation

New Concepts and Materials for the Consolidation and Protection of Wall Paintings


The conservation of Mayan wall paintings at the archaeological site of Calakmul (Mexico) will be one on the subjects touched upon by Piero Baglioni (based at the University of Florence) in his invited lecture at the 3rd European Chemistry Congress in Nürnberg in September. In a special issue of ...


Using neutrons to peer inside a battery designed for hybrid locomotives

Study is a collaboration between General Electric and Technische Universitaet Muenchen


Rechargeable batteries may soon provide greater energy efficiency not only for road traffic, but also for rail transport. Scientists at the research neutron source FRM II of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) are taking a closer look at a high performance rechargeable battery for future ...


Think zinc: Molecular sensor could reveal zinc's role in diseases


Scientists have developed a new molecular sensor that can reveal the amount of zinc in cells, which could tell us more about a number of diseases, including type 2 diabetes. The research, published in Nature Methods, opens the door to the hidden world of zinc biology by giving scientists an ...


New method uses electrolyzed water for more efficient fuel production


Using electrolyzed water rather than harsh chemicals could be a more effective and environmentally friendly method in the pretreatment of ethanol waste products to produce an acetone-butanol-ethanol fuel mix, according to research conducted at the University of Illinois. When ethanol is ...


Emerson Acquires Scientific Instruments Wet Chemistry Analyser Product Line


Emerson announced it has acquired the online wet chemistry analysers product line of Hawthorne, New York, USA based SI Industrial Instruments, Inc. (trading as Scientific Instruments) for use in the power and water treatment markets. The Scientific Instruments product line becomes part of Emerson ...


Discovery of ionic elemental crystal against chemical intuition

New phase of elemental boron discovered


An ETH Zurich researcher has developed a computational method for predicting the structure of materials. He used it to solve the structure of a newly synthesized form of pure boron that displays some unusual physical properties and brings a surprise: it is partially ionic. The new structure can ...
