ACS News Service Weekly PressPac -- March 28, 2007

ome scientists dismissed the original 1989 cold fusion experiments by Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann as "bad" science due to alleged errors in calorimetric systems, or heat measurement, that could have led to erroneous reports that the excess heat produced was nuclear in origin.

Using more precise calorimetric techniques, a new study by Fleischmann and colleague Melvin Miles reports evidence that the excess heat generated is nuclear and not the result of calorimetric errors. "Our work shows that cold fusion effects are real, but we cannot assess if this excess heat can become useful. Much more research work is needed to answer such questions," says co-author Miles.

Leveraging Disorder
Chemical & Engineering News

One of the basic tenets of biology is that the structure of a protein determines its function, but intrinsically disordered proteins, which are unstructured or contain highly unstructured regions, dont seem to follow this rule. Now, a growing number of researchers are finding that these disordered proteins have important biological functions and are involved in disease processes ranging from cancer to Alzheimers disease. An article on these mysterious proteins is scheduled for the April 2 issue of Chemical & Engineering News, the ACS weekly newsmagazine.

Researchers now believe that these disordered proteins confer plasticity and flexibility to proteins, thereby allowing the signaling networks these proteins control to rapidly respond to their cells environment, according to the article by C&EN Associate Editor Sarah Everts. She interviewed several scientists who have provided new insights into these fasc
