The latest bumper Xmas issue of Reactive Reports, actually the 61st issue I’ve produced for the site is now online. In this issue we cover:
Molecular Light Switch – According to Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann, “Nanotechnology is the result of the marriage of the synthetic talent of Chemists with a device-driven ingenuity.”
Blood, Light, and Water – Two molecules that occur naturally in blood have been engineered by scientists from the UK and Japan to use sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
Plastic Shape Shifter – Temperature-controlled “triple-shaped plastics” that can change shape from one form to another, then another, have been developed by researchers in Germany and the US.
