‘Celebrate Science’ Events Next Sunday Open to the Public

American Chemical Society (ACS)

A major science celebration is on tap at the Indiana Motor Speedway Sept. 8 in a collaboration between Celebrate Science Indiana and the Indiana Local Section of American Chemical Society (ACS) the world’s largest scientific society. The fair coincides with the ACS 246th National Meeting & Exposition, Sept. 8-12, in Indianapolis.

Tornadoes Tend Toward Higher Elevations and Cause Greater Damage Moving Uphill

University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The first field investigations of the effect of terrain elevation changes on tornado path, vortex, strength and damage have yielded valuable information that could help prevent the loss of human life and damage to property in future tornadoes. Engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas analyzed Google Earth images of the massive 2011 Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Joplin, Mo., tornadoes and found similarities between the two in behavior and interaction with the terrain. The findings likely apply to all tornadoes.

American Chemical Society Issues Guidelines for Safer Research Laboratories

American Chemical Society (ACS)

The world’s largest scientific society today issued guidelines to better ensure the safety of the tens of thousands of personnel who work in research laboratories around the country. The American Chemical Society issued the report, requested by a federal safety board, during its 246th National Meeting & Exposition. The meeting, which includes almost 7,000 reports on new advances in science and other topics, continues here through Thursday.

Substance That Gives Grapefruit Its Flavor and Aroma Could Give Insect Pests the Boot

American Chemical Society (ACS)

The citrus flavor and aroma of grapefruit — already used in fruit juices, citrus-flavored beverages, and prestige perfumes and colognes — may be heading for a new use in battling mosquitoes, ticks, head lice and bedbugs thanks to a less expensive way of making large amounts of the once rare and pricey ingredient, a scientist said here today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Toward Treating Disease the Way Artificial Limbs Replace the Function of Lost Arms and Legs

American Chemical Society (ACS)

The vision for a new branch of medicine, inspired by the ancient field that began with peg legs and hand hooks, commanded the spotlight in a major address by its pioneer here today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society. He focused on the field he has named “molecular prosthetics.”

Indy 500 Race Cars Showcase Green Fuels

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Mention cars that get barely 3 miles to a gallon and are built for speed rather than cleanliness, and images of gas-guzzling, pollution-belching menaces burning leaded gasoline or nitro may spring to mind. But experts today described how ethanol blends used as fuel in the race cars of the Indianapolis 500 actually make those emissions cleaner than cars on the street. They spoke at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

State E-Waste Disposal Bans Have Been Largely Ineffective

American Chemical Society (ACS)

One of the first analyses of laws banning disposal of electronic waste (e-waste) in landfills has found that state e-waste recycling bans have been mostly ineffective, although California’s Cell Phone Recycling Act had a positive impact. However, e-waste recycling rates remain “dismally low,” and many demographic groups remain unaware of their alternatives, according to the study, which was presented today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Artificial Lung to Remove Carbon Dioxide — From Smokestacks

American Chemical Society (ACS)

After studying the functioning of the lungs of birds and the swim bladders of fish, scientists described how they created an improved method to capture carbon dioxide that acts like a reverse natural lung, breathing in the polluting gas. Their study on the best way to arrange tubes in a carbon dioxide capture unit was presented at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.

IINDY 500 Track Continues to Foster Better Technology for Everyday Driving

American Chemical Society (ACS)

The pavement recipe for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home of the Indianapolis 500, could be used to improve the smoothness, durability and safety of some of the 2 million miles of paved roads and streets where people move at ordinary speeds, scientists said here today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society, being held here this week.
