Advances point the way to smaller, safer batteries

Cornell University

New Cornell research advances the design of solid-state batteries, a technology that is inherently safer and more energy-dense than today’s lithium-ion batteries, which rely on flammable liquid electrolytes for fast transfer of chemical energy stored in molecular bonds to electricity. By starting with liquid electrolytes and then transforming them into solid polymers inside the electrochemical cell, the researchers take advantage of both liquid and solid properties to overcome key limitations in current battery designs.

Fast-Acting Psychedelic Can Improve Depression, Anxiety

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered that use of the synthetic psychedelic 5-methocy-N,-N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) appears to be associated with unintended improvements in self-reported depression and anxiety when given in a ceremonial group setting. 5-MeO-DMT is a psychedelic that is found in the venom of Bufo Alvarius toads, in a variety of plants species, and can be produced synthetically.

Current Legal Cannabis Driving Limits in U.S., Europe Are Ineffective According to Breaking Research in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry Journal

American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC)

New findings, published today in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal, add to a growing body of evidence suggesting that no legal driving limit for cannabis can catch impaired recreational users without unfairly penalizing unimpaired regular or medicinal users.

College of Science & Mathematics Cancer Researcher Publishes in Nature Communications

Rowan University

The diseases are very different – cancer and Parkinson’s – but Dr. Mary Alpaugh’s goal is the same: if not to eradicate them, then at least to find effective drugs to treat them.

Researchers discover new nitrogen source in Arctic

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

Scientists have revealed that the partnership between an alga and bacteria is making the essential element nitrogen newly available in the Arctic Ocean. The microbial process of "nitrogen fixation" converts the element into a form that organisms can use, and was discovered recently in the frigid polar waters. This shift may be a result of climate change and could affect global chemical cycles, according to the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

New Violin Design Could Change The Instrument Forever

Texas A&M University

The fundamental design of the violin has been changed only once since the times of Antonio Stradivari, considered the ultimate master craftsman of the instrument. But new research by a Texas A&M University professor suggests that a modification could be made to the instrument that will enhance its tonal quality and how it is played. His findings could rock the music world, so to speak, and alter the way the stringed instruments are constructed in the future.
