‘Chemical Architects’ Build Family of Materials with Potential Applications in Drug Delivery and Gas Storage
Researchers in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences have designed a family of materials that could make drug delivery, gas storage, and gas transport more efficient and at a lower cost. The findings were reported in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).
Geology and Planetary Science Team Discovers Lead Pollution Dating Back 8,000 Years
A team of researchers from the Department of Geology and Planetary Science detected the oldest-discovered remains of human-derived lead pollution in the world in the northernmost region of Michigan, suggesting metal pollution from mining and other human activities appeared far earlier in North America than in Europe, Asia, and South America.
Mathematicians Devise Formula that Analyzes Epilepsy and Other Conditions
A 350-year-old mathematical mystery could lead toward a better understanding of medical conditions like epilepsy or even the behavior of predator-prey systems in the wild, Dietrich School researchers report.
Chemists Demonstrate "Breathalyzer" Technology for Diabetes Detection, Management
Dietrich School chemists, led by Alexander Star, have demonstrated a sensor technology that could simplify the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes through breath analysis alone. Their findings were published in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).
