Microwaved nanotubes come up cleanMicrowaved nanotubes come up clean
Rice, Swansea scientists use household oven to help decontaminate carbon nanotubes
Amid all the fancy equipment found in a typical nanomaterials lab, one of the most useful may turn out to be the humble microwave oven. (January 22, 2016)


Graphene oxide ‘paper’ changes with strainGraphene oxide ‘paper’ changes with strain
Rice researchers say material is more or less brittle, depending on how hard it’s pulled
The same slip-and-stick mechanism that leads to earthquakes is at work on the molecular level in nanoscale materials, where it determines the shear plasticity of the materials, according to scientists at Rice University and the State University of Campinas, Brazil. (January 19, 2016)

Obstacles not always a hindrance to proteinsObstacles not always a hindrance to proteins
Rice researchers’ theory finds blocked path sometimes speeds DNA sequence search
Proteins are little Olympians in the games of life, racing around cells to trigger critical processes through interactions with specific genes. Sometimes they’re sprinters, sometimes hurdlers. But they generally find their genetic targets, whatever the obstacles. (December 10, 2015)
