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.

Perovskites and their potential use in solar energy applications - Free Current Commentary

Posted on 16. September, 2014.

A material may be described as having a perovskite structure if it has same type of crystal structure as perovskite – calcium titanium oxide (CaTiO3) – does (Figure 1). Perovskite was first discovered in 1839 by Gustav Rose, in the Ural mountains in Russia, and is named after the Russian mineralogist L.A.
