‘Molecular Surgery’ Reshapes Living Tissue with Electricity but No Incisions

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Traditional surgery to reshape a nose or ear entails cutting, sometimes followed by long recovery times and scars. Now, researchers have developed a “molecular surgery” process using tiny needles, electric current and 3D molds to reshape living tissue with no incisions, scarring or recovery time.

Muscle-Like Material Expands and Contracts in Response to Light (Video)

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Just as controlled-release medications slowly dole out their cargo after they experience a pH change in the body, implanted “artificial muscles” could someday flex and relax in response to light illuminating the skin. In pilot studies, scientists have developed a new material that expands and contracts.

Juice Plant Pathogen Could Be Treated with Newly Identified Antibacterial Agent

American Chemical Society (ACS)

There’s nothing like a glass of orange juice, but prices have soared as the Florida citrus industry fights a citrus greening disease epidemic that's been drying out oranges and reducing crop yield. There’s no cure, but researchers report they have identified a fungal compound that may inhibit the bacteria.

‘Smart’ Pajamas Could Monitor and Help Improve Sleep (Video)

American Chemical Society (ACS)

If you’ve ever dreamed about getting a good night’s sleep, your answer may someday lie in data generated by your sleepwear. Researchers have developed pajamas embedded with self-powered sensors that provide unobtrusive and continuous monitoring of heartbeat, breathing and sleep posture.

Uncovering the Secrets of Ancient Rock Art Using ‘X-Ray Vision’

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Prehistoric rock paintings are a source of fascination. Aside from their beauty, there’s deep meaning in these strokes, which depict ancient rituals and important symbols. Scientists now describe use of “X-ray vision” to gain brand-new insights about the layers of paint in rock art without needless damage.

Liquid Crystals Could Help Deflect Laser Pointer Attacks on Aircraft

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Aiming a laser beam at an aircraft isn’t a harmless prank: The sudden flash of bright light can incapacitate the pilot, risking the lives of passengers and crew. Today, researchers report liquid crystals that could someday be incorporated into aircraft windshields to diffuse any wavelength of laser light.

Understanding What Makes Tennessee Whiskey Unique

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Freshly distilled, un-aged whiskey is filtered over charcoal made from the sugar maple tree in a mysterious, but necessary step known as the Lincoln County Process. By law, a product cannot be called Tennessee whiskey without it. Researchers have clues as to what the process imparts to the final product.
