New hand-held breath monitor capable of detecting the flu virus with just a single exhale.
The highest gatekeepers of Chemistry have officially accepted the new names of the four elements added to the Periodic Table of Elements. These four new elements were announced by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
A new study revealed that the unusual region on Mars called Thaumasia Planum was most likely created by a chain of volcanic eruptions.
Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for designing machines that are thinner than a strand of hair.
A mysterious ice cloud appeared again on Titan's stratosphere and there is a possibility that the formation process of this mysterious cloud is similar with the ones seen over Earth's poles.
There are unexpected compounds found--- or rather can be formed in Uranus an Neptune.
The threat of a global shortfall in helium supplies may no longer be a problem, given the discovery of a helium gas reserve in Tanzania.
Scientist have detected for the first time the existence of the chiral molecule propylene oxide in the interstellar space.
IUPAC released the provisional names of superheavy elements 113, 115, 117 and 118, honoring Japan, Moscow, Tennessee and Russian scientist Yuri Oganessian.
Recently analyzed lava samples suggest water was present when the planets were just beginning to form.
When you think of beetles, you probably think of the many harmless bugs that wing around a garden looking for some tasty aphids to devour. They don't bother you, and you likely have no reason to bother them. This changes in the case of the bombardier beetle - a species infamous for its ability to spray a powerful jet of superheated chemicals that can even scald human skin.
Dandelions: one lawn's weed is another lawn's flower. That has long been the root of one of the least import debates in lawn care history (seriously, it's spring! we LIKE yellow flowers). However, for some time now the little flowers have also been used in the natural production of rubber. Apparently, the dandelions could even put the rubber industry through a cost-cutting revolution, but first experts need to better understand how exactly they work.
A new molecule-making machine developed by a team at the University of Illinois is a breakthrough in the chemistry field, as it could potentially speed up the development of new drugs, a new study says.
Let's be honest, a LOT of things can supposedly give you cancer, especially considering that cancer is nothing more than mutated cells forgetting where they are supposed to be. Radiation, toxins, and even inflammation can all screw with the natural order of things. Now, researchers are adding a new item to the ever-growing list of carcinogens: amber food coloring.
It's no secret that scientists and the general public don't always see eye-to-eye about things. Animal testing, GMOs, and climate change are all hot-button topics for debate. But at least in the case of MSG, maybe it's time to listen to the experts. The American Chemical Society (ACS) recently released a video attempting to put the egregiously wrong rumors about this common ingredient down for good.
