THz spectroscopy could help Explain water's anomalies

29-Jun-2018

Liquid water sustains life on earth, but its physical properties remain mysterious among scientific researchers. Recently, a team of Swiss researchers used existing THz spectroscopy techniques to measure liquid water's hydrogen bonding. Future efforts with this technique could one day help ...

Unique binding mechanism of antifreeze molecule identified

20-Apr-2018

Scientists have identified a unique molecular binding mechanism that helps keep non-mammalian creatures in sub-zero temperatures from freezing. Antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGPs), produced by polar fishes, inhibit ice growth to prevent their bodies from freezing. This ice binding mechanism, which ...

Studies of 'amorphous ice' reveal hidden order in glass

05-Oct-2017

The waves at the bottom of old window panes are a reminder that solid glass behaves like a very slow-moving liquid. Now a new study challenges the notion that the atomic structure of glass is indistinguishable from that of a liquid ­- at least for a certain kind of glass called "amorphous ice" ...

Water: Finding the normal within the weird

15-Dec-2016

Water has many unusual properties, such as its solid form, ice, being able to float in liquid water, and they get weirder below its freezing point. Supercooled water -- below freezing but still a liquid -- is notoriously difficult to study. Some researchers thought supercooled water behaved oddly ...

The symphony of life, revealed

A new imaging technique captures the vibrations of proteins, tiny motions critical to human life

20-Jan-2014

Like the strings on a violin or the pipes of an organ, the proteins in the human body vibrate in different patterns, scientists have long suspected. Now, a new study provides what researchers say is the first conclusive evidence that this is true. Using a technique they developed based on ...

Radio chip and sensor in one

15-Oct-2010

RFID technology is on the advance. But, up to now radio chips primarily supply data for the identification of products. Researchers have now developed a transponder which measures temperature, pressure and humidity. The chip with sensor function could revolutionize the applications ...

Chemists unmask natural antifreeze

27-Aug-2010

Together with cooperation partners from the U.S., the researchers surrounding Prof. Dr. Martina Havenith (Physical Chemistry II of the RUB) describe their discovery in a so-termed Rapid Communication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). The journal's independent reviewers ...

Boron-Oxygen Triple Bonds stabilized for the first time ever

20-Apr-2010

World first: chemists from the University of Würzburg have, for the first time ever, succeeded in creating a stable triple bond between the elements boron and oxygen. This success is reported in the journal "Science". Why is this renowned scientific magazine so enthusiastic about the work of the ...

Scientists isolate new antifreeze molecule in Alaska beetle

16-Dec-2009

Scientists have identified a novel antifreeze molecule in a freeze-tolerant Alaska beetle able to survive temperatures below minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike all previously described biological antifreezes that contain protein, this new molecule, called xylomannan, has little or no protein. ...
