organic food
2014-08-29 07:09:25

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Our society seems fraught with fraud. There are fraudulent products, fraudulent services, fraudulent identities and now fraudulent food. The organic food market is growing, with consumers quite willing to pay more for fruits, vegetables and more that are labeled "organic." But are the food products they are being sold truly organic? A new study from the Bavarian Health and Food Safety Authority, published in the Journal of...

Rachel Berkowitz, Berkeley Lab Earth’s magnetic field, a familiar directional indicator over long distances, is routinely probed in applications ranging from geology to archaeology. Now it has provided the basis for a technique which might, one day, be used to characterize the chemical composition of fluid mixtures in their native environments. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) conducted a proof-of-concept NMR...

Cartell, located in Salunga PA, introduces a new way to detect vehicles. Salunga, PA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014 Cartell makes a driveway alarm system that makes homeowners aware every time a vehicle enters their driveway. There are a lot of systems that do that, but not exactly the way Cartell does. It is the technology Cartell uses that gives it an edge in the market and the right to claim it is virtually false-alarm proof. The car detection component of the Cartell system is based on...

University of Southampton Scientists are using a pioneering method of 'caging' and cooling water molecules to study the change in orientation of the magnetic nuclei at the centre of each hydrogen atom - a process which transforms the molecule from one form of water to another. By trapping water molecules in carbon spheres and cooling them, scientists at the universities of Southampton, Nottingham and Columbia University in New York, have been able to follow the change in form (or...

Water Caged In Buckyballs Provides Insight Into Spin Isomers
2014-05-21 03:14:35

By Jason Bardi, American Institute of Physics In a new paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics, produced by AIP Publishing, a research team in the United Kingdom and the United States describes how water molecules "caged" in fullerene spheres ("buckyballs") are providing a deeper insight into spin isomers -- varieties of a molecule that differ in their nuclear spin. The results of this work may one day help enhance the analytical and diagnostic power of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)...

New screening technique opens the door to unlimited opportunities, both in terms of chemistry and biology research Researchers at Griffith University's Eskitis Institute have developed a new technique for discovering natural compounds which could form the basis of novel therapeutic drugs. The corresponding author, Professor Ronald Quinn AM said testing the new process on a marine sponge had delivered not only confirmation that the system is effective, but also a potential lead in the...


Word of the Day
vermicular
  • Like a worm in form or movement; vermiform; tortuous or sinuous; also, writhing or wriggling.
  • Like the track or trace of a worm; appearing as if worm-eaten; vermiculate.
