But what about windows that change colors depending on the humidity outside during the monsoon season or on hot days of summer? http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Researchers create active material out of microscopic spinning particles https://phys.org/news/2020-05-material-microscopic-particles.html https://phys.org/news/2020-05-material-microscopic-particles.html Fri, 29 May 2020 13:31:14 UTC Chemistry News - Biochemistry, Polymers, Materials Science At the atomic level, a glass of water and a spoonful of crystalline salt couldn't look more different. Water atoms move around freely and randomly, while salt crystals are locked in place in a lattice. But some new materials, recently investigated by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, show an intriguing propensity to sometimes behave like water and sometimes like salt, giving them interesting transport properties and holding potential promise for applications like mixing and delivery in the pharmaceutical industry. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ A new horizon for vibrational circular dichroism spectroscopy https://phys.org/news/2020-05-horizon-vibrational-circular-dichroism-spectroscopy.html https://phys.org/news/2020-05-horizon-vibrational-circular-dichroism-spectroscopy.html Fri, 29 May 2020 11:37:43 UTC Chemistry News - Biochemistry, Polymers, Materials Science Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy is an extension of circular dichroism spectroscopy into the infrared and near-infrared regions where vibrational transitions occur in the ground electronic state of a molecule. The method offers the advantage of studying the chiroptical properties of a wide range of molecules in non-crystalline states. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ New technology enables fast protein synthesis https://phys.org/news/2020-05-technology-enables-fast-protein-synthesis.html https://phys.org/news/2020-05-technology-enables-fast-protein-synthesis.html Thu, 28 May 2020 18:00:02 UTC Chemistry News - Biochemistry, Polymers, Materials Science Many proteins are useful as drugs for disorders such as diabetes, cancer, and arthritis. Synthesizing artificial versions of these proteins is a time-consuming process that requires genetically engineering microbes or other cells to produce the desired protein. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Smart sponge could clean up oil spills https://phys.org/news/2020-05-smart-sponge-oil.html https://phys.org/news/2020-05-smart-sponge-oil.html Thu, 28 May 2020 17:01:24 UTC Chemistry News - Biochemistry, Polymers, Materials Science A Northwestern University-led team has developed a highly porous smart sponge that selectively soaks up oil in water. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Not sure if you've already had coronavirus?
