Researchers bridge the gap between disciplines to better understand chemical reactions

Simon Fraser University researchers are yielding new insights into how chemical reactions can be understood and guided. Results of their interdisciplinary approach have been published in Physical Review Letters. They often follow a series of elementary steps as they progress, though chemical reactions may be...

Scientists deploy chemical tools to detect cancer causing proteins

Yale's Microbial Sciences Institute scientists have taken an important step in our understanding of how infection alters proteins in a way that promotes tumor growth. A hallmark of cancer-causing infections is oxidative stress. It occurs when our cells come into contact with oxygen-containing molecules called...

A new approach to predict stable species in liquids can guide the design of optimal solution performance

Stony Brook University researchers have found a way to computationally predict stable molecular species in liquid solutions. The new method has been detailed in a paper in Nature Computational Science. It introduces a fully automated high-throughput computational framework to predict stable species by computing their...

Scientists propose mission riding a laser to mars

McGill University scientists designed a solicitation. The laser is a 10-meter-wide array on Earth. It would heat hydrogen plasma in a chamber behind the spacecraft. It will produce thrust from hydrogen gas and sending it to Mars in only 45 days. It would aerobrake...

Chemists develop radical way to make profitable recycle plastic

United States generates more plastic trash than any other country. According to a 2020 study, about 46.3 million tons of it. The country's 9% rate of recycling will never keep up. The chemistry of today's plastics makes it difficult to recycle. Thermoplastics can be melted...

Fossil snail shells will help in analyzing ancient ocean chemistry

A collection of fossil shells from marine snails and clams is challenging a theory which suggests the world's deadliest mass extinction was accompanied by severe ocean acidification. Instead of showing damage or signs of repair which would be expected if the mollusk was surviving in acidic...
