Researchers Probe Into Electronic Structure Of Metal-organic Framework
2013-11-22 12:39:00

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory A unique inside look at the electronic structure of a highly touted metal-organic framework (MOF) as it is adsorbing carbon dioxide gas should help in the design of new and improved MOFs for carbon capture and storage. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have recorded the first in situ electronic structure observations of the adsorption of carbon dioxide inside Mg-MOF-74, an open...

Blood-Glucose Breathalyzer For Diabetics
2013-11-13 15:17:17

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Soon diabetics may be able to use a pain-free breathalyzer device to easily monitor their blood-glucose levels, according to new research being presented at the 2013 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Antonio, Texas this week. Developed by Ronny Priefer, a chemist from Western New England University, the device uses nanometer-thick films made from of two polymers that react...

Researchers Develop Technique For Imaging Individual Carbon Nanotubes
2013-11-13 07:50:55

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Despite their almost incomprehensibly small size – a diameter about one ten-thousandth the thickness of a human hair – single-walled carbon nanotubes come in a plethora of different “species,” each with its own structure and unique combination of electronic and optical properties. Characterizing the structure and properties of an individual carbon nanotube has involved a lot of guesswork – until now. Researchers with the U.S. Department of...
