Nanogenerator powers conventional electronics

Electronic gadgets that don’t require charging are a step closer after the successful demonstration of a nanoscale generator that produces enough electricity from mechanical movement to power a LCD display. Device inventor Zhong Lin Wang, from Georgia Tech, explained that the mechanical energy needed to drive the generator could come from a heartbeat, the pounding […]

Electricity generated directly from photosynthesis

Stanford University scientists have “wired up” algae to harness a tiny electric current directly from the plant during photosynthesis; an achievement which could lead to the highly efficient generation of bioelectricity with no carbon byproducts, the researchers say. “We believe we are the first to extract electrons out of living plant cells,” said WonHyoung Ryu, […]

When DNA Turns On Itself

A study conducted at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has shown that DNA itself can be a catalyst for cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma. Normal DNA is said to become problematic when it twists in the opposite direction to its familiar right hand spiral, thereby becoming what researchers have dubbed […]

Shedding Light On The Hydrogen Economy

A technique that uses photochemical molecular devices to produce hydrogen gas from water could be an important step on the way to seeing the widespread use of hydrogen as a power source in the future. The chemists from Virginia Tech (VT) presented their research yesterday at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in […]
