A highly efficient and chemically stable hydrazine sensor using carbon modified zinc oxide nanorods has been developed by Chinese scientists

Nanowire-tapping cells
Nanoscale electronic probes that can enter cells without damaging them have been made by US scientists

Science controversy authors fight on
Chemistry weaknesses in ‘reactome bioarray’ work do not undermine its effectiveness, its inventors say

Non-metal-catalysed C-C coupling
Chemists in China couple aromatic molecules with an organocatalyst and no transition metal

Light-rechargeable batteries
Chemists develop new molecular system that can both generate and store charge by light

Facelift for FutureGen project

Nanoparticles and ultrasound team up to treat tumours
New treatment uses magnetic nanoparticles and focused ultrasound to get drugs across the blood-brain barrier

Microfinancing to solve academic poverty?
Could thousands of small donations from the public for specific projects be the way to fund research in these cash-strapped times?

Nanocouriers transport molecular cargo
Specific pick-up and delivery zones for molecular cargo on a chip could lead to nanoscale assembly lines, say Swiss scientists
