TEL AVIV, Israel, April 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Tel Aviv University President Professor, Joseph Klafter, has co-authored a paper that brings together a myriad of seemingly unrelated chemical reactions creating a unified picture of reaction kinetics. "Geometry-Controlled Kinetics," published in Nature Chemistry on April 18, contributes to our understanding of how the geometry of a particular medium affects the motion of molecules or other particles within that medium, determining how...

Revised model will help scientists better understand transport of fluid constituents, with a wide range of applications. Combined mechanisms of transport have important applications"”transport of nutrients across cell membranes in plants and animals, the aeration of agricultural soils, performance of chemical reactors, the design of membranes for desalting brackish water, and the design of clay membranes for retaining dangerous chemicals. Because mass transport of fluid constituents has...

Engineers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are patenting a method that is expected to double the service life of concrete. The key, according to a new paper*, is a nano-sized additive that slows down penetration of chloride and sulfate ions from road salt, sea water and soils into the concrete. A reduction in ion transport translates to reductions in both maintenance costs and the catastrophic failure of concrete structures. The new technology could save billions...

Lausanne, Switzerland-- An international group of researchers from the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique F©d©rale de Lausanne), the University of Texas at Austin and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany have demonstrated that Brownian motion of a single particle behaves differently than Einstein postulated one century ago. Their results, to be published online October 11 in Physical Review Letters, provide direct physical evidence that validates a corrected form...
