Artificial Molecules Created That Behave Like Real Ones

Scientists can now simulate the behavior of real molecules by using artificial molecules, enabling them to alter the properties of molecules in ways that are normally difficult or unrealistic and aid understanding of how molecules change.

Pressure and Steam Reduce Allergenicity of Shrimp

Researchers have found that reverse-pressure sterilization can produce a less-allergenic shrimp product that, when tested in mice sensitive to the crustaceans, did not cause severe reactions.

Materials Around Us Are Defined by Water Molecules

A study upends the paradigm that the atoms and molecules that make up the natural world define the character of solid matter, and argues that the character of many biological materials is actually created by the water that permeates these materials.

Novel Resin Enables Generation and Purification of Radium and Actinium for Cancer Therapeutics

Zirconium-based materials have been shown to effectively separate radium and actinium, which could enable the large-scale production of radioisotopes for cancer therapy.
