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.

Nutrimetabonomics: nutritional applications of metabolic profiling

Posted on 20. March, 2014.

An individual’s metabolic phenotype, and ultimately health, is significantly influenced by complex interactions between their genes and the diet. Studying these associations and their downstream biochemical consequences has proven extremely challenging using traditional hypothesis-led strategies. Metabonomics, a systems biology approach, allows the global metabolic response of biological systems to stimuli to be characterized.
