Researchers shed light on new enzymatic reaction

Researchers have identified key ingredients for producing high-value chemical compounds in an environmentally friendly fashion: repurposed enzymes, curiosity, and a little bit of light. A paper published in Nature describes a study led by Xiaoqiang Huang (pictured), a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) and… Read More »

Harvard researchers find ways to improve on soap and water

GAZETTE: So the technology involved here — the engineered water nanostructures — is a couple of years old. What’s new is the application? DEMOKRITOU: We have the tools to make these engineered nanomaterials and, in this particular case, we can take water and turn it into an engineered water nanoparticle, which carries its deadly payload, primarily… Read More »
