Ann Arbor chemist wins national award for extracting sulfur from fuel

...defiance of gravity. But why study adsorption as a separation technique? "Over 90 percent of separations in the industry are done by distillation," or selectively boiling off compounds, said Yang. "That's very energy-intensive. Adsorption isn't. It can also help with boiling points that are too close." Thus the...

UI study discovers cells segregate molecules to control signaling

...eptors, and this might stimulate cell growth." The separation mechanism may also be important in controlling developmental processes because immature cells do not possess the barriers found in mature cells....

Rockefeller scientists identify 'natural' proteins that push stem cells to produce hair, not skin

...r. In addition, the same process that leads to the separation of a stem cell from other cells may shed insight into how a cancer cell metastasizes, or spreads, from its host tumor, Fuchs explains. The research may also prove relevant to a much less serious but more common condition, baldness. "Skin turns over ...

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists respond to Buzzards Bay oil spill

...ure of chemicals in oil, and a novel more powerful separation and identification technique called comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography, available at only a few laboratories in the country. Reddy and Nelson found that many of the compounds in the oil are the same as those found in the 1969 West Falmo...

...oping retina, the researchers found that thenormal separation of left and right eye connections did not occur. The results show that neuronal activity in the eye permits theeye-specific connections to the LGN to develop. "Contrary to what everyone expected, the pattern of activity in thedeveloping retina is no...

Natural resources research helps HIV/AIDS victims

Fruit odors lure some flies to evolve into new species

... Galapagos. Recently it has been proposed that the separation need not be geographic or even physical. A shift in the use of a new host plant for mating and the laying of eggs could be enough to keep insects that occupy the same area at the same time from mating. This process is termed "sympatric speciation," a...

After module separation of Soyuz TMA-2, the crew entered the Earth's atmosphere in the command module at 03:16 (CET), the main parachute opened at 03:25 (CET) and the landing took place 15 minutes later. During his 8-day stay on the ISS, Pedro Duque carried out an extensiv...

Social mothers appear to be better mothers
