Pollinator decline – an ecological calamity in the making?

Posted on 6. August, 2018.

Pollination is an ecosystem function that is fundamental to plant reproduction, agricultural production and the perpetuation of terrestrial biodiversity. An estimated 87.5% (approximately 308,000 species) of the world’s flowering plants are pollinated by insects and other animals, and more than three quarters of the major types of global food crops derive at least some benefit from animal pollination.

Unpaired electrons as probes of catalytic systems

Posted on 14. January, 2015.

In the December issue of Science Progress, an overview is provided of the importance of molecular species containing unpaired electrons in catalytic systems, as revealed using ESR spectroscopy. The review aims to demonstrate the considerable extent of scientific progress that has been made in this broad topic during the past few decades.

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. Perovski (1792 –1856), who first characterised the material.

State of the art of photovoltaic technologies  

Posted on 20. August, 2014.

Harvesting solar energy using photovoltaic devices is being increasingly recognised as an essential component of future global renewable energy generation. The finite supply of fossil fuel sources and the detrimental long term effects of carbon dioxide and other emissions, into the Earth’s atmosphere, emphasises the importance of developing and commercialising renewable energy technologies.

Cronobacter: an emergent pathogen causing meningitis to neonates through their feeds

Posted on 4. August, 2014.

The recognition of Cronobacter as a public health concern was raised when powdered infant formula (PIF) was linked to several neonatal meningitis outbreaks. It is an opportunistic pathogen that causes necrotising enterocolitis, infantile septicaemia, and meningitis which carries a high mortality rate among neonates.

Eating small: applications and implications for nanotechnology in agriculture and the food industry

Posted on 30. June, 2014.

Synthesis by direct manipulation of atoms was suggested by Richard Feynman in 1959, although the term "nano-technology" was not coined until 1974 by Norio Taniguchi.
