(University of Virginia Health System) The discovery unveils the molecular machinery that plants use to weave cellulose chains into cable-like structures called ‘microfibrils.’
Flavonoids from a specific line of corn act as anti-inflammatory agents in the guts of mice with an inflammatory-bowel-disease-like condition, according to a team of researchers who said flavonoid-rich corn should be studied to determine its potential to provide a protective effect on human health.
Researchers are advancing gas membrane materials to expand practical technology options for reducing industrial carbon emissions.
By Jeff Berardelli For the past year, some of the most up-to-date computer models from the world’s top climate modeling groups have been “running hot” – projecting that global warming may be even more extreme than earlier thought. Data from…
Some new climate models are projecting extreme warming. Are they correct? – Yale Climate Connections
For the past year, some of the most up-to-date computer models from the world’s top climate modeling groups have been “running hot” – projecting that global warming may be even more extreme than earlier thought. Data from some of the…
(San Diego State University) Studies have shown the Arctic is warming roughly twice as fast as the rest of the world, and its soil holds twice the amount of carbon dioxide as the atmosphere. New research from San Diego State University finds that water from spring snowmelt infiltrates the soil and triggers fresh carbon dioxide production at higher rates than previously assumed.
Researchers have developed a new environmentally friendly method for removing toxic chemicals from water. A newly invented machine, called the Matrix Assembly Cluster Source (MACS), has been used to design a breakthrough water treatment method using a solvent-free approach.
(Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Materials scientists have synthesized a new type of perovskite–one of the most common crystal structures of materials deployed for a range of uses, from superconductors to photovoltaics–that goes against conventional thinking about how such structures behave at extreme pressures such as those that exist deep in the Earth.
