Nickel gallium sulfide? Liquid Magnets?Nickel gallium sulfide (NiGa2S4) may behave as a highly unusual "liquid" magnetic material at near absolute zero, according to Japanese and US researchers.
Nanoparticles? Nano Surprise?A surprising mechanism by which polymers form nanocomposite particles could provide researchers with a new tool for controlling the growth of such materials.
Tricia Serio? When Good Turns Bad??Prions, the protein-like pathogens at the heart of the fatal brain disorder CJD, so-called mad cow disease, and related diseases can rapidly "remodel" good proteins into bad, according to US scientists, who have demonstrated this for the first time in living cells.
Truck? Urea Clean Up??Urea could be the key element in cleaning up diesel exhausts in Europe as new regulations come into effect.
