A bio-inspired addition to concrete stops the damage caused by freezing and thawing https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-05/cp-aba052020.php Concrete is one of the most durable building materials used in modern-day infrastructures, but it has a weakness — ice — which can cause it to crumble. Now, inspired by organisms that survive in sub-zero environments, researchers in Colorado are introducing polymer molecules with anti-freezing abilities into concrete. The method, which tests if the new concrete can stop the damage caused by free

A better way to split water molecules to produce hydrogen using sunlight https://phys.org/news/2020-05-molecules-hydrogen-sunlight.html A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Japan has developed a better way to split water molecules to produce hydrogen using sunlight. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes their technique and how well it worked. Simone Pokrant with Inscripta, Inc. has published a News and Views piece outlining the problems that scientists have faced in trying to

A (much) earlier birth date for tectonic plates https://phys.org/news/2020-05-earlier-birth-date-tectonic-plates.html Yale geophysicists reported that Earth's ever-shifting, underground network of tectonic plates was firmly in place more than 4 billion years ago—at least a billion years earlier than scientists generally thought.

However, a new study of the DNA of ancient skeletons spanning 4,000 years has revealed that only three time periods during this had a long-term effect on the genetics of the local population of Beirut. This shows the value of using genetics alongside archaeol

( Hentet: 26. maj 2020 ) ….. 3-D printed egg whites outperform existing flexible electronics materials https://phys.org/news/2020-05-d-egg-whites-outperform-flexible.html Devices flexible enough to be worn in comfort, sensitive enough to measure a pulse and transparent and thus barely noticeable are an attractive prospect for a range of applications from monitoring biometrics to hands-free user interfaces. However, the material properties required remain a tall order. Much research has focused on the possibilities of synthetic conductive polymers or conducting nano
