Identifying right-handed and left-handed molecules is a crucial step for many applications in chemistry and pharmaceutics. An international research team has now presented a new original and very sensitive method.
Inspired by the microstructure and thermal insulation function of the polar bear hair, scientists have used a freeze-spinning technique to continuously fabricate silk fibroin solution into a fiber with aligned porous microstructure.
An international research team has performed synchrotron X-ray diffraction experiments on titanium disulfide - a transition metal dichalogenide (TMD) material with a layered 2D structure - and compared the results with theoretical calculations.
Researchers present a new therapeutic material based on nanofibers made of polycaprolactone modified with a thin-film antibacterial composition and plasma components of human blood. Biodegradable bandages made from these fibers will accelerate the growth of tissue cells twice as quickly.
Scientists discovered a simple way to form stabilized droplets in a variety of structures. Tightly packed nanoparticle-polymer assemblies at droplet surfaces were squeezed into desired shapes assemblies with an electric field.
