Who needs water to assemble DNA? Non-aqueous solvent supports DNA nanotechnology

Scientists around the world are using the programmability of DNA to assemble complex nanometer-scale structures. Until now, however, production of these artificial structures has been limited to water-based environments, because DNA naturally functions inside the watery environment of living cells. Researchers have now shown that they can assemble DNA nanostructures in a solvent containing no water.

Fine-tuned molecular orientation is key to more efficient solar cells

Polymer solar cells are a hot area of research due to both their strong future potential and the significant challenges they pose. Using carefully designed materials and an 'inverted' architecture, a team of scientists has achieved efficiency of 10 percent, bringing these cells close to the threshold of commercial viability.
