A review on modified carbon materials as promising agents for hydrogen storage

Posted on 28. August, 2018.

Nowadays, energy is an important issue in all countries and this essential subject and the drawbacks of fossil fuels have encouraged researchers to develop new energies. However, among these new energies such as solar energy, wind energy and others, hydrogen is pre-eminent because it has no pollutant by-product and it is thus clean with a huge thermal energy. However, it is not applicable in many industries because of obstacles such as safety, volatility, explosive hazards and low compressibility.

The Promiscuous T-cell

Posted on 8. September, 2011.

T-cells are a vital type of white blood cell that scan for cellular abnormalities and infections. They recognise disease-associated antigens via a surface receptor called the T-cell antigen receptor (TCR). If there were a specific TCR for every single antigen, no mammal could possibly contain all the T-cells it needs. This suggests that T-cell recognition must be highly degenerate. Yet highly promiscuous TCRs would appear to be equally impossible: they are bound to recognise self as well as non-self antigens.  In the next issue of Science Progress, mathematical analysis helps to resolve the paradox of the promiscuous TCR.
