Some materials dissolve too quickly in the body, and some hang around forever — zinc, however, may be just right.
Researchers at Aalto University have developed a geometric surface structure that is able to stop and control the spreading of liquids.
Researchers propose to create materials capable of protein recognition by means of a new technique based on nanosphere lithography.
Scientists produce a paper-like ceramic material which is as hard as copper, yet flexible enough to be rolled up or folded. The material has another advantage: it is electrically conductive.
Researchers have developed an innovative process for adding broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity to biomimetically-synthesized bio-inorganic composites.
Researchers have characterised the molecular packing motifs of several new benzo-thiophene derivatives.
German researchers present a new micro-machining method to fabricate micropatterned superelastic TiNi films.
Mollusk shells are well known to have excellent mechnical properties, but a species of carp – Mylopharyngodon piceus – lives on them. How?
