Moonlighting proteins – nature’s Swiss army knives

Posted on 22. February, 2018.

The human body is an amazingly complex machine with billions of cells that work together to perform a vast number of biochemical processes, each requiring hundreds or thousands of protein machines to serve as the structures and to synthesise the components, convert food to the chemical energy, break down old components, regulate all these processes and coordinate with other components, cells, and organs.

State of the Art of Photovoltaic Technologies

Posted on 28. September, 2010.

Our sun is the only sustainable energy source large enough to supply carbon-neutral energy to meet humanity’s entire energy demand. However, there is a large gap between Europe’s solar energy use (less than 1% of the total) and the enormous, untapped potential of the sun. There could be several reasons listed why it is so – social, political, technological – but the fundamental reason is insufficient efficiency of sunlight-to-energy conversion devices manufactured from inexpensive materials thus preventing large scale uptake. Along with thermal and photoelectrochemical sunlight-to-energy conversion, photovoltaics – an approach of converting sunlight directly into electricity – is probably most mature for contributing to the increasing renewable energy use.

In The Next Issue Of Science Progress...

Posted on 19. August, 2010.

In the next issue of Science Progress, Professor Chris Rhodes, the Director of Fresh-lands Environmental Actions,  discusses the  properties and applications of zeolites. These aluminosilicate solids contain a negatively charged honeycomb framework of micropores into which molecules may be adsorbed for environmental decontamination, and to catalyse chemical reactions. Zeolites are central to green-chemistry since the necessity for organic solvents is minimised.
