Quantum physics inside a drop of paint

Inside a drop of paint, light is scattered so often that it seems impossible to demonstrate quantum effects. But despite the thousands of possible paths the light can take, like a drunk person inside a labyrinth, researchers now show that there are just two exits.

Silk fibroin as edible coating for perishable food preservation

The regeneration of structural biopolymers into micelles or nanoparticles suspended in water has enabled the design of new materials with unique and compelling properties that can serve at the interface between the biotic and the abiotic worlds.

Open access infrastructure for a pilot line of nanoparticles and -composites

A simple and open access to high-class infrastructure for the reliable production of small batches of functionalised nanoparticles and nanocomposites for testing could ease the way towards new nano-based products for chemical companies.

New anti-biofilm coating impedes bacteria on metal surfaces

Researchers have developed an innovative anti-biofilm coating, which has significant anti-adhesive potential for a variety of medical and industrial applications.

Anti-bacterial coatings combat hospital-acquired infections

A new discovery could control the spread of deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs, which experts fear are on course to kill 10 million people every year by 2050 – more than will die from cancer.

Chemists unveil polymer that heals itself at body temperature

Scientists have led the development of a new material that can repair itself at body temperature. The polymer opens the door to new self-healing wound dressings for use in medicine. Other potential applications include self-healing vehicle paint.

Towards mussel-like on-demand coatings

Researchers from Laboratory of Macromolecular Photochemistry and Engineering, University of Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse, France, investigated the light-triggered polymerisation of dopamine through a photoinduced pH jump.
