Neutrons detect blockages non-destructively through metal pipeline walls

Industry and private consumers depend on oil and gas pipelines that stretch thousands of miles under water. It is not uncommon for these pipelines to become clogged with deposits. Until now, there have been few ways to identify plug formation in situ and non-destructively. Measurements at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Research …

The method doubles the efficiency of widely used industrial catalysts

The science of catalysis – the carrying out of a chemical reaction – is probably not the most well-known branch of study, but it is woven into the fabric of modern society. Scanning transmission electron microscopy images of metallic copper (yellow) and zinc oxide (pink/orange) catalysts. In the left image, …

New cryo-EM method may be able to shorten a big step in modern vaccine development

Scripps Research scientists have developed a method that could shorten one of the big steps in modern vaccine development. The researchers, whose work appears in Scientists progress on January 19, 2022, showed that they could use high-resolution, low-temperature electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to rapidly characterize antibodies-; vaccine- or infection-induced; that bind …

New X-ray crystallography method will find elusive molecules

How do we know that DNA is a double helix or that the spike proteins of the coronavirus are spike-shaped? One technique – X-ray crystallography – can take much of the credit. And a team of American scientists has just found a way to make it even more effective. Their …
