Researchers successfully constructed a cascade amplification drug release system by simultaneously loading a high drug content of Lapa and an ROS-responsive doxorubicin prodrug in a novel block copolymer micelle.
Fuels that are produced from nonpetroleum-based biological sources may become greener and more affordable, thanks to research that examines the use of a processing catalyst made from palladium metal and bacteria.
Scientists experimentally demonstrated that the magnitude and sign of the thermoelectric voltage across atomic-scale gold junctions can be controlled by applying a mechanical strain to deform the contact minutely and accurately while the structure of the surrounding material remains unaffected.
Researchers have developed carbon nanotube pores that can exclude salt from seawater. The team also found that water permeability in carbon nanotubes with diameters smaller than a nanometer exceeds that of wider carbon nanotubes by an order of magnitude.
