Researchers at the University of New Hampshire led by assistant professor of chemical engineering Kyung Jae Jeong were trying to improve the efficacy of hydrogel injections and make them more useful in clinics. In result, they came up with a material that is very cheap and easy to produce and moreover heals wounds faster than … Continue reading UNH scientists created inexpensive injectable hydrogel for fast wound healing.
Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) presented a material capable of self-regeneration. He independently tightens the cracks appearing on it. The basis of the ability to restore new material is the process of photosynthesis. With it, plants turn light into carbon dioxide and oxygen. The researchers connected the chloroplasts responsible for photosynthesis in … Continue reading MIT scientists have created a material, the cracks on which are tightened themselves.
A research team led by Dr. Saida Bogus of the Kuban State Medical University is trying to develop a new pharmacological remedy for various heart rhythm disorders. Nowadays, a lot of people all around the world are suffering from cardiovascular diseases and other similar complications. Moreover, according to statistics, 17 million of them die each … Continue reading Scientists found a new remedy for an unhealthy heart.
A team of chemists from Stanford Institute of Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health is trying to develop a new way of battling infections with antibiotics. They have already achieved great results in the laboratory and claimed to keep on improving their technique in order to make it reliable and eventually applicable in clinics. … Continue reading Chemists created a new way to fight against infections.
A team of researchers from the Department of Mechanical Engineering led by Associate Professor Hai Minh Duong and Professor Nhan Phan-Thien in collaboration with Dr. Xiwen Zhang from the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology created a very useful technology that can also solve some global environmental issues. The scientists got an idea of using plastic … Continue reading Scientists managed to convert plastic waste into the aerogel.
Chinese scientists from Heifei University of Science and Technology of China invented an artificial wood that has useful properties of natural material but at the same time lacks its flaws such as vulnerabilities to fire and water. When the researchers were trying to generate this wood-like substance, they decided to mix a solution of polymer … Continue reading Chemists made a super-resistant and solid artificial wood.
A group of scientists led by Meilin Liu from the Georgia Institute of Technology created a new fuel cell, which had been reimagined with the help of a newly invented fuel catalyst. This catalyst uses readily available methane instead of usual high-priced hydrogen fuel. It gonna make its production much cheaper. Hydrogen is the best … Continue reading Robust fuel cell runs on methane at practical temperatures.
A group of scientists from Stanford University headed by chemist Matthew Kanan has developed a device which enables to transform a received CO into beneficial compounds a way more effectively than ever before. The scientists claim that they learned how to use 84% of the carbon monoxide, which they obtain from carbon dioxide– the colorless, … Continue reading New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies.
