Polymers That Mimic Chameleon Skin

An international team of researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Akron, French National Center for Scientific Research (Centre national de la recherche scientifique), French University of Upper Alsace (Université de Haute-Alsace), and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) have produced a biocompatible synthetic material that replicates tissue mechanics and

Scientists Develop Molecular Code for Melanin-Like Materials

Scientists have long known that melanin—the pigments that give color to skin, hair and eyes—has numerous useful qualities, including providing protection from cancer-causing UV radiation and free radicals, but also electronic conductance, adhesiveness and the capacity to store energy. To take advantage of these qualities, scientists across the City University of New York (CUNY) have

ECBC Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination

Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination ECBC researchers, working with CBI Polymer, explored how a HydroGel can be modified to decontaminate surfaces contaminated with biological agents such as spores of Bacillus anthracis, which are capable of causing anthrax disease in humans and animals.HydroGel is a biosynthetic polymer that
