Researchers have identified 13 metabolites– small molecules produced by cellular metabolism– that are significantly different in patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease compared to healthy controls.
Chemists have found that a uniquely shaped enzyme that has never been seen before in biology is...
Researchers have labeled sculpture in brewer's yeast with a non-radioactive method so that...
A company has developed their own proprietary method of taking any low, medium or top shelf liquor and improving the quality exponentially by removing the impurities.
A new report examined the global chromatography instrumentation market over the forecast period of 2013 to 2018. The market is estimated at $7,583.8 million in 2013 and is poised to grow to $10,008.3 million by 2018.
Premature birth appears to trigger developmental processes in the white matter of the brain that could put children at higher risk of problems later in life.
Humble aluminum’s plasmonic properties may make it far more valuable than gold and silver for certain applications, according to new research.
Research had elucidated the arrangements and mobility of soft nanoparticles in dense suspensions that mirror the anomalies observed in complex liquids, like water.
Nanoadditives can make plastics scratch- and flame-proof, or give them antibacterial properties. For this to work, the particle distribution within the plastic compound must be absolutely correct. A new device can now test the distribution in real-time.
Scientists have flown through the smoke plumes of wildfires to measure aerosol evolution and map the potential impact on climate change.
Some electrons in a superconducting material behave as if they were in a conventional metal, others as in an unconventional one– depending on the direction of their motion.
Queen bees convey honest signals to worker bees about their reproductive status and quality, according to researchers who say their findings may help to explain why honey bee populations are declining.
The Food and Drug Administration is trying to solve a stubborn mystery surrounding the deaths of almost 600 dogs that ate jerky treats, and officials are hoping pet owners and veterinarians can help them figure out what exactly may be causing the illnesses.
A huge plastic balloon floated high in the skies over New Mexico, carrying instruments to collect climate-related test data with the help of carbon nanotube chips.
The ever-increasing threat from "superbugs"— strains of pathogenic bacteria that are impervious to the antibiotics that subdued their predecessor generations— has forced the medical community to look for bactericidal weapons outside the realm of traditional drugs.
The recent publication of a new standard provides confidence that results from handheld chemical detectors can be compared, apples-to-apples.
An international team of scientists have identified potentially dangerous amounts of methamphetamine analog in the workout supplement Craze, a product widely sold across the U.S. and online.
Scientists are thinking small, building on decades of sensor work to invent tiny detectors that can sniff out everything from explosives and biotoxins to smuggled humans.
You might not think to look to a urine test to diagnose an eye disease. But a new study says it can link what is in a patient's urine to gene mutations that cause retinitis pigmentosa, or RP, an inherited, degenerative disease that results in severe vision impairment and often blindness.
Using ultra-fast laser pulses, scientists have made the first detailed observation of how energy travels through diamonds containing nitrogen-vacancy centers– promising candidates for a variety of technological advances such as quantum computing.
A team has succeeded in combining tunneling microscopy and infrared spectroscopy to gain a better understanding of how molecules behave when they stick to a surface. They used a custom built laser to allow for performing infrared spectroscopy with scanning tunneling microscopy without heating its tip.
By applying NMR spectroscopy, an international team has solved a long-standing theoretical problem regarding the identification of solvent structures.
Researchers— using a combination of X-ray spectroscopy, liquid microjets and first principles’ theory— have shown that, when hydrated in water, positively charged ions can actually pair up with one another.
