Say researchers from the Hebrew University, US and Australia The warming effect of human-induced greenhouse gases is a given, but to what extent can we predict its future influence? That is an issue on which science is making progress, but the answers are still far from exact, say researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the US and Australia who have studied the issue and whose work which has just appeared in the journal Science. Indeed, one could say that the picture is a...

Smart Hydrogel Delivers Medicine On Demand
2014-01-16 08:46:10

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A new study from the University of Delaware has led to the development of a 'smart' hydrogel that is capable of delivering medicine based on response to mechanical force. For the last several decades, many hydrogels have been created that release medicine in response to pH, temperature, DNA, light and other stimuli. Xinqiao Jia, UD professor of materials science and engineering and biomedical engineering said, “The idea of a...

Cobalt Catalysts Help Researchers Duplicate Complicated Steps Of Photosynthesis
2014-01-15 09:56:04

Argonne National Laboratory Humans have for ages taken cues from nature to build their own devices, but duplicating the steps in the complicated electronic dance of photosynthesis remains one of the biggest challenges and opportunities for chemists. Currently, the most efficient methods we have for making fuel – principally, hydrogen – from sunlight and water involve rare and expensive metal catalysts, such as platinum. In a new study, researchers at the U.S. Department of...

LANGHORNE, Pa., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people probably haven't heard of hydrogels, but we are all surrounded by "hydrophilic" substances. Hydros is Greek for water; philia means love. A hydrophilic substance is attracted to water and tends to be dissolved by it. Among foods, salt is hydrophilic. Sugar is too, and--like salt--is sometimes used to draw water out of foods: sugar sprinkled on cut fruit will make the fruit mushy and wet. Not all hydrophilic substances lose...

Chemistry is a physical science concerned with the composition, structure, and properties of matter. It also deals with the changes that matter undergoes during chemical reactions. It incorporates the studies of various atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates which can be combined or isolated and concepts of energy and entropy through which chemical processes occur. Modern chemistry (from the Egyptian kēme, meaning "earth") evolved from alchemy following the chemical revolution...

In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
