Low Temperature Chemical Conversion

The field of chemistry has seen a great deal of advancements owing to perpetual research and development activities. Scientists have always emphasized on speeding up chemical reactions to get optimal results. However, there are several bottlenecks in driving a chemical conversion process at low temperature. The generation of carbon dioxide in these chemical reactions is one of the major issues. The researchers from U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National

Childhood Brain Cancer

Childhood brain cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths of children between five and eight years. The prognosis of these patients totally depends on the type of tumor. DIPG (Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is one of the most threatening brain cancers as it affects the pons. They act as a link between the brain and the spinal cord and are extremely sensitive. Tumors located at sensitive areas are

Pilot Carven

A team at Research Center for Gas Innovation (RCGI) is conducting a study – Pilot Cavern, expected in 2022. This concept is Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) as large caves in the salt layers will store CO2. Moreover, it will be a good practice to obtain clean energy from a fossil fuel at the time of production. The first result for Pilot Cavern research will come out in four years from

Lung Cancer Treatment

Researchers from the Francis Crick Institute and the Institute of Cancer Research found a drug class for lung cancer treatment.  This research was conducted on mice where they found lung tumor shrunk considerably when a certain protein (p110α) was blocked. The lung tumor caused due to mutation of a gene known as EGFR. The research was published in Cell Reports. The results are profound, as a drugs class, which is

Water

Scientists warn us about the atrocities we have implied upon nature in order to suffice our selfish needs. There is a possibility that soon there will be scarcity of pure air and water in order to breathe and survive. Therefore researchers are looking for various ways and means to avoid such calamities. They are focusing on natural resources that are present in abundance and can be converted into survival prospect.
