A new catalytic process could convert by-products of diesel production into more useful chemicals for industry A new catalytic process discovered at Cardiff University could unleash a range of useful new by-products from diesel fuel production. More sustainable production of sulphur-free diesel from natural gas and biomass is increasing. However the by-products, hydrocarbons like decane and other low value alkanes have little practical use. Now a discovery at the University's Cardiff...

An international team of scientists led by University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Professor Ralf I. Kaiser, Alexander M. Mebel of Florida International University, and Alexander Tielens of Leiden Observatory in the Netherlands, discovered a novel chemical route to form polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) — complex organic molecules such as naphthalene carrying fused benzene rings — in ultra-cold regions of interstellar space. The team announced their findings in the January...

Researchers have used tools of paleontology to gain new insights into the diversity of natural plant chemicals In the first study of its kind, researchers have used tools of paleontology to gain new insights into the diversity of natural plant chemicals. They have shown that during the evolution of these compounds nature doesn't settle for the 'low-hanging fruit' but favors rarer, harder to synthesize forms, giving pointers that will help in the search for potent new drugs. Research on the...

Marine scientists cast doubt on Thursday about an earlier study that found bacteria had consumed nearly all of the methane that leaked into the Gulf of Mexico amid last year's BP oil spill. Calling the widely-publicized study's findings "ambiguous" and "unconvincing", they said the methods used were flawed and warranted further review. "We find the complete methane oxidation hypothesis unconvincing," wrote Samantha Joye and colleagues from 12 other institutions in a technical comment...

Paper has implications for oxygen depletion, provides photographic evidence of plumes A new University of Georgia study that is the first to examine comprehensively the magnitude of hydrocarbon gases released during the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico oil discharge has found that up to 500,000 tons of gaseous hydrocarbons were emitted into the deep ocean. The authors conclude that such a large gas discharge"”which generated concentrations 75,000 times the norm"”could result in...

Golden Rice
2013-10-02 14:11:48

Golden Rice is a variety of Oryza sativa rice produced  through genetic engineering to biosynthesize beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, in the edible parts of the rice. The research was conducted with the goal of producing a fortified food to be grown and consumed in areas with a shortage of dietary vitamin A, a deficiency which is estimated to kill 670,000 children under five years old each year. Golden rice is different from its parental strain by the addition of three...
