When chemist Tehshik Yoon looks out his office window, he sees a source of energy to drive chemical reactions. Plants “learned” to synthesize chemicals with sunlight eons ago; Yoon came to the field a bit more recently. But this week, in the journal Science, he and three collaborators detail a way to use sunlight and two catalysts to create molecules that are difficult to make with conventional techniques — a finding that may eventually have implications for drug making and materials...

Rubber Band Distortions Lead To Discovery Of A New Shape
2014-04-24 12:33:38

[ Watch the Video: Rubber Bands Help Scientists Discover New Shape ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In a new report published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, a team of Harvard University engineers have described the factors behind the creation of a hemihelix, a distorted version of a regular helix, from elastic rubber bands. The Harvard team said these newly-described factors could inform the creation of new geometric shapes at the molecular level. "Once...

DRI scientists investigate the link between right-handed and left-handed amino acids A study published this week in PLOS ONE authored by Dr. Henry Sun and his postdoctoral student Dr. Gaosen Zhang of Nevada based research institute DRI provides new evidence that Earth bacteria can do something that is quite unusual. Despite the fact that these bacteria are made of left-handed (L) amino acids, they are able to grow on right-handed (D) amino acids. This DRI study, funded by the NASA...

The Hunt Is On For Extraterrestrial Amino Acids
2012-11-16 15:54:01

NASA The hunt for the organic molecules that create proteins and enzymes critical for life here on Earth has largely happened in sophisticated terrestrial laboratories equipped with high-tech gadgetry needed to tease out their presence in space rocks and other extraterrestrial samples. A technologist at NASA´s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., now wants to take that search to the sources themselves. Stephanie Getty, who recently was selected as Goddard´s...
