UC Merced professor coauthors paper published in Nature Chemistry, offering insight into how naturally occurring RNA precursors may have formed on Earth billions of years ago A relatively simple combination of naturally occurring sugars and amino acids offers a plausible route to the building blocks of life, according to a paper published in Nature Chemistry co-authored by a professor at the University of California, Merced. The study, "A Route to Enantiopure RNA Precursors from Nearly...

Los Alamos team sees unprecedented proof of ion's role in enzymatic process A Los Alamos National Laboratory research team has harnessed neutrons to view for the first time the critical role that an elusive molecule plays in certain biological reactions. The effort could aid in treatment of peptic ulcers or acid reflux disease, or allow for more efficient conversion of woody waste into transportation fuels. In a paper appearing this week in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Los Alamos...

People who turn to fatty comfort foods, such as a scoop of ice cream or a piece of chocolate cake, during times of emotional stress know firsthand how calming these foods can be.  However, new research shows that so-called "Ëœcomfort eating' really does work at a molecular level to lift our mood, findings that could help explain why so many people spiral into obesity amid long-term stressful situations. The scientists at the University of Leuven in Belgium concluded that...

Studies of the probable role of organic acids in lakes indicate that power plant emissions may have had a smaller impact on lake acidity than previously assessed During the 1970s and 1980s, researchers and policymakers became increasingly worried about multiple consequences of acidic emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the stacks of power stations, and eventually they were controlled. In Europe, there was much concern about the effects on Sweden's many lakes, which were found...

Research performed in Guy Bertrand's lab offers vast family of new catalysts for use in drug discovery, biotechnology Chemists at the University of California, Riverside have accomplished in the lab what until now was considered impossible: transform a family of compounds which are acids into bases. As our chemistry lab sessions have taught us, acids are substances that taste sour and react with metals and bases (bases are the chemical opposite of acids). For example, compounds of the element...

A simple cut to the skin unleashes a complex cascade of chemistry to stem the flow of blood. Now, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have used evolutionary clues to reveal how a key clotting protein assembles. The finding sheds new light on common bleeding disorders. The long tube-shaped protein with a vital role in blood clotting is called von Willebrand Factor (VWF). Made in cells that form the inner lining of blood vessels, VWF circulates in the blood...

Now science not only confirms that the unique oral hyaluronic acid provided in Purity Products HA formulas actually works (doctors were skeptical a decade ago, believing only injected HA would be beneficial), but that it dramatically improves skin hydration, mollifies wrinkles and significantly supports joint health and function. Plainview, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2011 In the wake of a jaw-dropping ABC News report over a decade ago, when hyaluronic acid was first identified as the molecule that...

University of British Columbia researchers "“ using an innovative, atom-by-atom substitution method "“ have uncovered the mechanism by which a particular class of drugs controls irregular heartbeats. The findings, published today in the online journal Nature Communications, shed light on why certain anti-arrhythmic drugs (AADs) have dramatically different effects on the heart's behavior compared to others, and why the same drug can be beneficial in some instances and fatal in...

Acid Rain
2013-04-01 10:21:17

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...

In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
