Chemistry and Physics
Bringing light to NMR spectroscopy
In situ illumination of liquid-state samples makes it possible for a wide range of light-dependent chemical and biological phenomena to be studied by one of the most powerful analytical techniques - nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Engineering and Manufacturing
Creating hard, tough and degradable polyester resins
Thermosets, or cross-linked polymers, are a class of materials with a permanent molecular architecture. One of the benefits of thermosets is that they can add additional stability, enhanced strengths, improved elasticity, and reduced creep compared to their linear counterparts.
Energy and Environment
Quantifying recycled content in plastics and packaging – ReCon2
The use and disposal of synthetic polymers in packaging and other applications has become a critical environmental issue, and one that we must control as a society.
Super MAN stem cells - Ethical stem cells
The procurement of stem cells, which are used in ever-more effective treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, is a source of moral concern for many opposed to the practice. However, a new ethical solution may mitigate this flashpoint moral quandary.
