Medicine & TechnologyResearchers have just used lasers to examine further how water surface may function as a template for the molecules' regular arrangement, not to mention what physiochemical mechanisms are triggering this.
Chalmers University of Technology researchers found that mixing multiple molecules could result in a new type of glass that has potential applications ranging from medicine, solar cell technology, and advanced digital screens.
Researchers were able to predict the behavior of troublesome ions during water processing, so they were able to develop a new ion-removal process to improve the conversion of seawater into fresh water.
Asbestos is a naturally occuring mineral with very tiny, microscopic fibers. When asbestos is generally disturbed, the fibers become airborne. These fibers can be easily inhaled, causing potential life-threatening harm after being trapped in the lungs.
Scientists recently learned that sunlight can also chemically transform plastics into a soup of new chemicals that no longer resemble the original product, which could be more sinister than microplastics that persist forever in the environment.
A new Tiktok trend shows people mixing a bunch of colorful chemicals to clean the toilet. But experts warn against this as people could accidentally inhale harmful chemicals, such as chlorine gas and chloroform.
