Scientists make plastic from Christmas trees
Scientists make plastic from Christmas trees
Most current plastics are made from oil, which is unsustainable. However, scientists from the Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath have developed a renewable plastic from a chemical called pinene found in pine needles. Pinene is the fragrant chemical from the terpene family that gives pine trees their distinctive ‘Christmas smell' and is a waste product from the paper industry.

Single-molecule graphene switches bring minute electronic devices a step closer
Researchers have discovered how to control molecules attached to graphene, paving the way for tiny biological sensors and devices to hold information. Graphene is a material made of a single sheet of carbon atoms in a honeycomb arrangement. Because of its unique electrical conductivity, graphene has the potential to be a base for electronic devices that are only nanometres (billionths of a metre) in size.

Chemical snapshots could lead to better engineered cartilage
Taking "chemical photographs" of the cartilage between joints and comparing it to engineered versions could lead to better implants, say researchers. Articular cartilage is the smooth, white tissue that covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints, allowing the bones to glide over each other with little friction.

World’s ’smallest magnifying glass’ makes it possible to see individual chemical bonds between atoms
Using the strange properties of tiny particles of gold, researchers have concentrated light down smaller than a single atom, letting them look at individual chemical bonds inside molecules, and opening up new ways to study light and matter. Single gold atoms behave just like tiny metallic ball bearings in our experiments, with conducting electrons roaming around, which is very different from their quantum life.

Mechanisms of shape-shifting sea cucumbers
Scientists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have discovered for the first time how marine animals called sea cucumbers can rapidly change the stiffness of their body, which could provide a useful basis for developing novel biomaterials for applications in medicine. One of the most abundant molecules in the human body is collagen, a structural protein that forms our bones, ligaments and skin.

Researchers at the University of Bristol have designed a synthetic community of artificial cells that collectively displays a simple form of predatory behaviour. The work provides a new approach to designing complex life-like properties in non-living materials. Protocells are artificial cell-like entities that could be used to clean up pollutants, store and release drugs, monitor chemical reactions, and serve as models for the origin of life.

Harnessing the possibilities of the nanoworld
Scientists have long suspected that the way materials behave on the nanoscale - that is when particles have dimensions of about 1'100 nanometres - is different from how they behave on any other scale. A new paper in the journal Chemical Science provides concrete proof that this is the case.  It is exciting that these simple experiments, when carried out with great care, can unexpectedly open a new door to understanding the fundamental question of how surface effects can control the stability of nanocrystals.

Professor Robert Winston brings science to hit US chat show
Imperial's Professor Robert Winston exploded onto American TV this week making an appearance on CBS's The Late Late Show with James Corden. Professor Winston, Professor of Science and Society, performed three gas-based experiments on the Emmy nominated US talk show. Before a live studio audience Professor Winston, assisted by host James Corden, demonstrated the flammable properties of hydrogen by setting fire to soap bubbles before using a hydrogen peroxide and soap solution to create oxygen, sending an eruption of foam 15 foot into the air.

Astronomers identify a young heavyweight star in the Milky Way
A young star over 30 times more massive than the Sun could help us understand how the most extreme stars in the Universe are born. These massive stars have shorter overall lifespans, making them harder to catch when they are infants. John Ilee Astronomers have identified a young star, located almost 11,000 light years away, which could help us understand how the most massive stars in the Universe are formed.
