Traditional industrial processes in drug and perfume production can hurt the environment and be less than economical. Now, though, researchers have developed a series of techniques to create a variety of very active iron-based catalysts necessary to produce the alcohols and amines used in the drug a...
Space junk is a growing problem in our Earth's orbit. Now, though, scientists have found a way to track this space junk using a youth radio station. This, in turn, could help spacecraft and satellites avoid this trash and multi-billion dollar collisions.
Synthetic polymers coating a nanoparticle surface can recognize specific molecules just like an antibody.
Scientists have come up with a new, innovative way to generate electricity. They've created a system capable of using cars and pedestrians to generate electric energy.
A recent report from the American Chemical Society's (ACS') award-winning Global Challenges/Chemistry solutions discusses the advances of monitoring devices in remote locations that could potentially save a patients' health. This development works to convert smartphones into powerful mini-microscope...
A recent study looks at a three-dimentional camera that was presented last week at the Siggraphy Asian in Hong Kong, which many believe could be used in medical imaging to provide collision avoidance detectors for cars via interactive video gaming devices.
Thanks to current robotics research, medical robots that can ‘think’ and act independently, or follow a human brain in motion are no longer the stuff of fantasy.
A recent study looks at the possibilities of a tongue-controlled wheelchair that can work as a navigation system.
Rain can be variable across different parts of a region. It can fall more heavily in some locations while leaving others with little moisture. Now, scientists are using GPS-equipped moving cars as devices to measure rainfall.
NASA is planning to relaunch the Kepler Space Telescope with a tweaked steering system to withstand Sun's pressure.
Intelligence is a very difficult concept and, until recently, no one has succeeded in giving it a satisfactory formal definition.
