Creating new molecular sieves

An international team of researchers recently synthesized polyarylether-based covalent organic frameworks, the most stable crystalline porous material on record. The team, which includes...

Radon inferior to radium for electric dipole moments (EDM) searches

An international research team led by the University of Liverpool has made a discovery that will help with the search for electric...

3D microchannels promote self-assembly of ordered emulsions at low droplet concentrations

Self-assembly is the process by which simple building blocks interact and organize themselves into ordered structures. Nature abounds with fascinating examples of...

New research unlocks properties for quantum information storage and computing

TROY, N.Y. - Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have come up with a way to manipulate tungsten diselenide (WSe2) --a promising two-dimensional material--to further...

New material with magnetic shape memory

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and ETH Zurich have developed a new material whose shape memory is activated by magnetism. It retains...

Deep learning techniques teach neural model to ‘play’ retrosynthesis

Columbia chemical engineers train a neural network model to plan synthetic routes to any target molecule, optimizing user-specified objectives such as cost, time,...

UV light may illuminate improvements for next generation electronic devices

By adding one more layer of atoms to already infinitesimal semiconductors, a next-level generation of electrical devices becomes possible. This work to...
