Fast, cheap, and easy medical testing devices can help diagnose diseases across the world. Let's learn about one recently developed to detect HIV!
How are Olympic doping agents similar to environmental water contaminants? It all relates back to chemical detection methods!
CO2 is a big problem! Thankfully, scientists are exploring ways of turning this harmful greenhouse gas into valuable chemical feedstocks!
Cu oxide clusters deposited on the ZrO2 nodes of NU-1000 by AIM catalyze partial oxidation of methane. The state of the Cu was determined by XAS analysis to contain ∼15% Cu+ and ∼85% Cu2+ under ambient conditions. The average structure of the Cu is square planar coordinated by four O atoms (Cu−O ≈ 1.94 Å) with an additional one or two out-of-plane Jahn−Tellerdistorted O atoms, one of them has Cu−O ≈ 2.33 Å). A Cu− Cu distance of ∼2.93 Å was observed and the coordination number of Cu was determined at 1.3 ± 0.3. A combined EXAFS and DFT study indicates that the cluster that predominates in Cu-NU-1000 is likely to be a trimeric Cu-hydroxide-like structure that bridges two nodes across the c-pore of the MOF.
Carbon monoxide is probably one of the last things you would expect to see touted as a new therapeutic. How could this compound be used in medicine?
Antibodies can be used as medicines, but they need some help to enter the cell. In this paper, the help that they need arrives from another molecule that works as a ticket for the cell taxi.
