Are discarded cigarette butts the next high performing hydrogen storage material?
Discarded cigarette butts are a major waste disposal and environmental pollution hazard. But chemists at the University of Nottingham have discovered that cigarette butt-derived carbons have ultra-high surface area and unprecedented hydrogen storage capacity. The research was carried out by Robert Mokaya , Professor of Materials Chemistry, and Troy Scott Blankenship, an undergraduate project student, in the School of Chemistry and has been published in the academic journal Energy and Environmental Science .

'Bandit-masked' feathered dinosaur hid from predators using multiple types of camouflage
’Bandit-masked’ feathered dinosaur hid from predators using multiple types of camouflage
Researchers from the University of Bristol have revealed how a small feathered dinosaur used its colour patterning, including a bandit mask-like stripe across its eyes, to avoid being detected by its predators and prey. By reconstructing the likely colour patterning of the Chinese dinosaur Sinosauropteryx , researchers have shown that it had multiple types of camouflage which likely helped it to avoid being eaten in a world full of larger meat-eating dinosaurs, including relatives of the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as potentially allowing it to sneak up more easily on its own prey.

Mental wellbeing of Generation X directly linked to childhood 
Childhood disadvantage is strongly associated with poorer adult mental wellbeing for Generation X, according to a UCL study. This remained the case even if they were able to overcome their childhood circumstances to climb the social ladder by early middle age. In contrast, Baby Boomers' childhood background was not linked to their wellbeing in adulthood.
