Scientists have developed micron-sized spheres to catch and destroy bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical used to make plastics. While BPA that seeps into food and drink is considered safe in low doses, prolonged exposure is suspected of affecting the health of children and contributing to high blood pressure.
Scientists have demonstrated a new catalyst that can convert ammonia into hydrogen fuel at ambient pressure using only light energy, mainly due to a plasmonic effect that makes the catalyst more efficient.
Scientists have made an atomic-scale "movie" capturing the dynamic structural changes of copper sulfide nanocrystals.
Researchers have created a flat, micron-thick lens that could drastically reduce the size and weight of any optical instruments used for imaging, including cameras, microscopes, telescopes, and eyeglasses.
Scientists have discovered that single atoms of platinum can break the bond between carbon and fluorine, one of the strongest known chemical bonds.
Scientists have discovered that nanoparticles of gold covered with cytokines can reduce inflammation and promote the regeneration of muscle fibers.
Researchers have developed a new screening process could dramatically accelerate the identification of nanoparticles suitable for delivering therapeutic RNA into living cells.
Researchers have created a computer simulation, validated by experimental results, to help design drug-delivery nanoparticles that carry cancer-fighting medicines directly to tumors, while minimizing the potential side-effects on healthy cells.
Scientists have used nanoparticles along with FDA-approved medication to effectively and selectively inhibit drug-resistant kidney cancer.
