Scientists solve mystery about catalysis for green production of methanol from carbon dioxide

Live view into methanol synthesis

10-May-2022

An international research team led by researchers of Stockholm University has for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. The results – obtained at DESY´s brilliant light source PETRAIII – are published in the scientific ...

New tool reveals function of enigmatic gene sequences

Study may eventually contribute to the development of new, targeted drugs

09-Mar-2022

While the large proportion of our genome that does not instruct our cells to form proteins has been harder to study than protein-coding genes, it has been shown to have vital physiological functions. Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have now developed new high-precision tools able to ...

Method to reveal undesired biological effects of chemicals

How do pollutants and other chemicals that we are exposed to affect our health?

02-Dec-2021

Researchers from Linköping University in Sweden have applied a method to identify the proteins in the body affected by chemicals. The method can be used to discover at an early stage whether a substance has biological effects in an organism. They are in the water we drink, the food we eat and the ...

Blood biomarker identified that predicts type 2 diabetes many years before diagnosis

An AI-based diagnostic tool is being developed through a biotech startup

17-Nov-2021

A large study led by Lund University in Sweden has identified a protein in the blood that could predict type 2 diabetes up to nineteen years before the onset of the disease. The study is published inNature Communications. Type 2 diabetes is a growing global epidemic, with 6% of the world ...

New cellulose-based material gives three sensors in one

A multiparameter Pressure-Temperature-Humidity Sensor based on Mixed Ionic-Electronic Cellulose Aerogels

28-Mar-2019

Cellulose soaked in a carefully designed polymer mixture acts as a sensor to measure pressure, temperature and humidity - at the same time! The measurements are completely independent of each other. The sensor may be highly significant in fields such as robotics, healthcare and security. The ...
