Nanotexturing Creates Bacteria-Killing Spikes on Stainless Steel Surfaces

News

By using an electrochemical etching process on a common stainless steel alloy, researchers have created a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria while not harming mammalian cells. If additional research supports early test results, the process might be used to attack microbial contamination on implantable medical devices and on food processing equipment made with the metal.

Microbes Help Turn Greek Yogurt Waste Into Fuel

News

Consumers across the world enjoy Greek yogurt for its taste, texture, and protein-packed punch. Reaching that perfect formula, however, generates large volumes of food waste in the form of liquid whey. Now researchers have found a way to use bacteria to turn the leftover sugars and acids from Greek yogurt into molecules that could be used in biofuels or safe feedstock additives.

Life’s Building Blocks Observed in Space-Like Environment

News

A new study shows that a number of small organic molecules can form in a cold, space-like environment full of radiation. This evidence suggests it is possible that life’s building blocks might have been made through chemical reactions induced by secondary electrons on icy surfaces in space exposed to any form of ionizing radiation.
