Cleaning Pollutants From Water with Pollen and Spores — Without the ‘Achoo!’ (Video)

American Chemical Society (ACS)

In addition to their role in plant fertilization and reproduction, pollens and spores have another, hidden talent: With a simple treatment, these cheap, abundant and renewable grains can be converted into tiny sponge-like particles that can grab on to pollutants and remove them from water, scientists report.

Disappearing Act: Device Vanishes on Command After Military Missions (Video)

American Chemical Society (ACS)

A polymer that self-destructs? While once a fictional idea, new polymers now exist that are rugged enough to ferry packages or sensors into hostile territory and vaporize immediately upon a military mission’s completion.

Cracking a Decades-Old Test, Researchers Bolster Case for Quantum Mechanics

The Optical Society (OSA)

At upcoming FiO + LS conference, researchers will discuss creative tactics to get rid of loopholes that have long confounded tests of quantum mechanics. With their innovative method, the researchers were able to demonstrate quantum interactions between two particles spaced more than 180 meters (590 feet) apart while eliminating the possibility that shared events during the past 11 years affected their interaction.
