The Art of Forming Uniform Gas Bubbles in Liquid

News

Bubble formation is typically a much more random process than liquid droplet formation, yet the generation of uniform drops and bubbles is very desirable in microfluidics. Researchers have now shown that under certain conditions, bubbles can also be coaxed to form spheres as perfectly matched as droplets.

A Drug Target for Chemically Induced Parkinson's Disease

News

The synthetic opioid, MPTP, induces the onset of a form of Parkinson's disease. In a new study, researchers found that an enzyme in the body can metabolize compounds formed in the brain from alkaloids present in certain foods and tobacco into MPTP-like chemicals, triggering a neurodegenerative condition in mice.

New Way to Deliver Drugs Through the Skin Using “Nanoemulsion” Gels

News

MIT chemical engineers have devised a new way to create very tiny droplets of one liquid suspended within another liquid, known as nanoemulsions. They also found a way to easily convert the liquid nanoemulsions to a gel when they reach body temperature, which could be useful for developing materials that can deliver medication when rubbed on the skin or injected into the body.
