Spinning ginger into nanoparticles to heal inflammatory bowel disease

Researchers have developed edible ginger-derived nanoparticles that they believe may be good medicine for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease. The particles may also help fight cancer linked to colitis, according to experiments in mice.

Attosecond science opens new avenues in femtochemistry

Attosecond Science is a new exciting frontier in contemporary physics, aimed at time-resolving the motion of electrons in atoms, molecules and solids on their natural timescale. Electronic dynamics derives from the creation and evolution of coherence between different electronic states and proceeds on sub-femtosecond timescales.

A miniaturized sensor that can measure chemistry on a chip

By combining expertise in nanophotonics and materials science, researchers have laid the groundwork for a chemical sensor on a chip that could be used in small portable devices to analyze samples in a lab, monitor air and water quality in the field and perhaps even detect explosives.

A novel method to untangle metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes

Researchers managed to reverse the electronic characteristics of a polymer known to disperse semiconducting nanotubes - while leaving the rest of the polymer's structure intact. By so doing, they have reversed the process, leaving the semiconducting nanotubes behind while making it possible to disperse the metallic nanotubes.

Does ecology reach all the way down to the subatomic scale?

Advances in our understanding of the profound connections between atomic-scale processes and biological molecules serve to deepen, if not transform, the way we regard ecological processes - and, by implication, living things, no matter how invisible.
