Scientists in Delaware say they have developed a new hydrogen storage method - carbonized chicken feather fibers - that can hold vast amounts of hydrogen, a promising but difficult to corral fuel source, and do it at a far lower cost than other hydrogen storage systems under consideration.
Moscow International Salon of Innovations and Investments is the biggest in Russia and unique scientific and technical forum of inventors, creators and manufacturers of highly technological production, investment projects in the scientific and technological sphere and industry.
Ein neues Simulationsprogramm optimiert Struktur und Anordnung der metallischen Kontaktfinger bei Konzentrator-Solarzellen und verbessert so den Wirkungsgrad. Außerdem: Eine hochsensible Methode, cDNA-Fragmente aus biologischem Probenmaterial herzustellen.
Providing a broad insight into the potential applications of carbon nanotubes with metals and ceramic materials as a matrix, this book focuses on the preparation and the microstructural, physical, and mechanical characterizations of such novel nanocomposites.
Scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the University Clinic Heidelberg, Germany, have produced a three-dimensional reconstruction of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), which shows the structure of the immature form of the virus at unprecedented detail.
At this year's Eawag Info Day - held on Tuesday, 23 June - the latest findings of research on anthropogenic micropollutants are being presented to more than 350 scientists, water professionals, administration officials and policymakers.
On June 24, Erik Parens will discuss the report's findings, exploring the differences between physical and non-physical harms and pro-actionary and pre-cautionary frameworks, in an effort to better define the ethical issues around synthetic biology. Gregory Kaebnick, also of The Hastings Center, will describe the Center?s new, multi-year project that will examine the ethical issues raised in the report in greater depth.
Using a 'chemical nose' array of nanoparticles and polymers, researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed a fundamentally new, more effective way to differentiate not only between healthy and cancerous cells but also between metastatic and non-metastatic cancer cells.
Alessandra Luchini, a scientist in George Mason University's Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine, has captured the inaugural Premio Award for the top Italian woman scientist in North America.
The NanoBusiness Alliance today announced its 2009 Talent Fellowship winners have completed their weeklong training at Argonne National Laboratories and will begin their research internships at leading Chicago area nanotechnology companies this week.
