Watch the video "Chemical Lights Up Rotten Egg Gas In Body's Cells" Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from Southern Methodist University in Dallas have devised a chemical probe that allows for the visualization of an important process in the human body, the generation of hydrogen sulfide. Best known for its role in producing the “rotten egg” smell associated with certain bodily processes, hydrogen sulfide is also very important for the...

Uncovering Dark Oxidants And The Dangerous Effect They Have On Life
2013-05-04 06:50:37

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Of all the things that could be hazardous to your health, would you believe breathing oxygen makes the list? Our bodies produce toxic chemicals in our cells, called oxidants, which we fight naturally and with foods that contain antioxidants like blueberries and dark chocolate. All forms of life that breathe oxygen must fight oxidants to live, even those forms we can´t see with a naked eye, such as bacteria. "If they don't," says...

New way to highly efficient catalysts and nanotubes with unusual symmetry A doll in a doll, and then one more, enveloping them from the outside — this is how Thomas Faessler explains his molecule. He packs one atom in a cage within an atom framework. With their large surfaces these structures can serve as highly efficient catalysts. Just like in the Russian wooden toy, a hull of twelve copper atoms encases a single tin atom. This hull is, in turn, enveloped by 20 further tin atoms....

Chemists of the University Jena reveal how algae delete unwanted 'competitors' Every morning when the sun comes up, the ocean ground is radically cleaned. As soon as the first rays of sunlight find their way into the water, the microalgae "Nitzschia cf pellucida" start their deadly 'morning hygiene'. The algae, the size of only some few micrometers, wrap themselves and their surroundings in a highly toxic poison: cyanogen bromide, a chemical relative of hydrocyanic acid, although much more...

A study published by researchers at the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute (ASI) has shed first-ever light on a class of heterometallic molecular structures whose unique features point the way to breakthroughs in the development of lightweight fuel cell technology. The structures contain a previously-unexplored combination of rare-earth and d-transition metals ideally suited to the compact storage of hydrogen. The most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen holds great promise as a...

Sulfur (or Sulphur; see spelling below) is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an abundant, tasteless, odorless, multivalent non-metal. Sulfur, in its native form, is a yellow crystaline solid. In nature, it can be found as the pure element or as sulfide and sulfate minerals. It is an essential element for life and is found in several amino acids. Its commercial uses are primarily in fertilizers but it is also widely used in gunpowder,...
