The most common method used for the protection of metals from corrosion is by painting. The use of paints and coatings for avoiding metallic corrosion is age old. These paints tend to deteriorate under certain conditions. Moreover, in the natural deterioration of a coating of paint, there exist multiple causes that make the system deteriorate prematurely. A PhD thesis at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) focused on the study of blistering of paint on large submerged structures...

Research at Virginia Tech has shown that the oldest complex life forms -- living in nutrient-rich oceans more than 540 million years ago "“ likely fed by osmosis.The researchers studied two groups of modular Ediacara organisms, the fern-shaped rangeomorphs and the air mattress-shaped erniettomorphs. These macroscopic organisms, typically several inches in size, absorbed nutrients through their outer membrane, much like modern microscopic bacteria, according to the cover story of the...
