Rice University researchers find plasmonics show promise for optically induced electronics Rice University researchers are doping graphene with light in a way that could lead to the more efficient design and manufacture of electronics, as well as novel security and cryptography devices. Manufacturers chemically dope silicon to adjust its semiconducting properties. But the breakthrough reported in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano details a novel concept: plasmon-induced...

Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have developed a novel technology that can identify, in animal models, potential biomarkers of ulcerative colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the colon. The study was published October 3, 2012, in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The new research focuses on the protein arginine deiminases (PAD), which have been implicated in a number of diseases, including cancer,...

In an advance toward a new generation of improved hip and other joint replacements, scientists are describing development of a potential implant material that flexes more like natural bone, fosters the growth of bone that keeps implants firmly in place and is less likely to fail and require repeat surgery. Their study on these so-called tantalum nanotube materials appears in ACS Applied Material & Interfaces. Hongyi Li, Jinshu Wang and Zhenting Zhang explain that the metal tantalum has...

Scientists are reporting development of a revolutionary new lens – flat, distortion-free, so small that more than 1,500 would fit across the width of a human hair – capable in the future of replacing lenses in applications ranging from cell phones to cameras to fiber-optic communication systems. The advance, which could lead to smart phones as thin as a credit card, appears in ACS' journal Nano Letters. Federico Capasso and colleagues explain that the lenses used to focus light...

Carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the oceans as a result of water pollution by nutrients – a major source of this greenhouse gas that gets little public attention – is enhancing the unwanted changes in ocean acidity due to atmospheric increases in CO2. The changes may already be impacting commercial fish and shellfish populations, according to new data and model predictions published today in ACS's journal, Environmental Science & Technology. William G. Sunda and Wei-Jun...

Enzymes involved in breaking down fat can now be manipulated to work three times harder by turning on a molecular switch recently observed by chemists at the University of Copenhagen. Being able to control this chemical on/off button could have massive implications for curing diseases related to obesity including diabetes, cardio vascular disease, stroke and even skin problems like acne. But the implications may be wider. Possibly the most important discovery in enzymology The results...

With nearly 55 million students, teachers and school staff about to return to elementary and secondary school classrooms, scientists today described a new hand-held sensor “• practical enough for wide use “• that could keep classroom air fresher and kids more alert for learning. They reported on the device at the 244th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, being held here this week. The sensor...

The Journal of the American Chemical Society is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1879 by the American Chemical Society. The journal has absorbed two other journals in history: the Journal of Analytical and Applied Chemistry (1893) and American Chemical Journal (1914). It is published on a weekly basis and is edited by Peter J. Stang (University of Utah). This journal publishes original research papers in all fields pertaining to chemistry and publishes nearly 16,000 pages...
