Water, water, everywhere - Controlling the properties of nanomaterials

Scientists are learning how the properties of water molecules on the surface of metal oxides can be used to better control these minerals and use them to make products such as more efficient semiconductors for organic light emitting diodes and solar cells, safer vehicle glass in fog and frost, and more environmentally friendly chemical sensors for industrial applications.

Revealing the inner workings of a molecular motor

Scientists have made important steps toward understanding how dynein - a 'molecular motor' - walks along tube-like structures in the cell to move cellular cargo from the outer structures toward the cell body of neurons.
