The chemistry of the World Cup

The 2018 World Cup kicked off! Here’s some of the chemistry you can look out for over the next month; polymers make up the ball and the shirts, and chemistry also has a part to play in the vanishing spray that referees will be using during the games. more

The Chemistry of Foxgloves

The vibrancy of foxgloves belies their poisonous nature – ingesting even a small amount of the plant can cause unpleasant effects, and in some cases death. However, the same compounds that make it poisonous can also have medicinal uses. This graphic takes a look at them in detail. more

Deuterating fatty acids to treat diseases

Maksim Fomich is currently looking into creating deuterated polyunsaturated fatty acid compounds, with a view to using them to potentially treat a range of diseases. Here, he shows the premise behind his research. A description of his research can be read via the link on the right side. more

Twelve women in science

International Women's Day was celebrated last week. As last year, we would like to introduce you to fascinating women of science.  This year, the focus will be on women researchers who are still active and who have helped to advance the world with their research. more

The biggest stories in science 2017

As we head into 2018, it’s time to take a look back at some of the biggest science news stories over the past year. This year’s science news featured poisonous frogs, battery fires, element creation, and more! more

The molecular mechanisms behind circadian rhythms

The first of this year’s Nobel Prizes in Science was announced today! This year’s prize in physiology or medicine was awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young for their research into the molecular mechanisms behind circadian rhythms more

Detecting gravitational waves from black hole collisions

This year’s second Nobel Prize in the sciences was awarded today. The prize for physics was awarded to researchers who contributed to the observation of gravitational waves, ripples in space-time that were originally created by colliding black holes over a billion years ago. more

Revealing the structures of biomolecules with cryo-electron microscopy

The last of this year’s Nobel Prizes, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was awarded today. This year’s prize went to the development of cryo-electron microscopy, a technique that allows the structures of biomolecules to be revealed where other techniques fail. It also gives scientists insights ... more

A Guide to Acids, Acid Strength, and Concentration

Even if you’re not a chemist, you’ll doubtless remember learning about acids back in school. They’re routinely described as strong or weak, concentrated or dilute. But what’s the difference between a strong acid and a concentrated acid? Explaining that is a little trickier than it sounds; i ... more

Developing Cheaper Lab-on-a-chip Devices with 3D Printing

Today’s graphic takes a look at the research of Sarah Hampson, a PhD student from Loughborough University who’s currently investigating 3D printed lab-on-a-chip devices and their potential to be used for disease diagnosis or particle analyser chips. more
