Acrylamide in food: Unraveling exposure and risk
Two years ago, Swedish scientists first reported unexpectedly high levels of the chemical acrylamide, a probable human carcinogen, in carbohydrate-rich foods, including potato chips, French fries, and some breads. How does acrylamide form? Which foods carry the highest levels? Does acrylamide pose a significant cancer risk? These and other question will be discussed at the 227th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim March 28-April1. (2004-03-29)

Nanotech, new burn therapy featured at chemists' meeting in Anaheim, March 28 - April 1
The world's top experts will take a close look at the big picture of nanotechnology in a special presidential symposium at the American Chemical Society's 227th national meeting in Anaheim, March 28 - April 1. Other featured topics include ways to convert greenhouse gases into fuel, a new treatment for severe burns, a view of the L.A.P.D. crime lab, the first in the nation, and the latest developments in gene and stem cell research.

Lens replacement material holds prospect of 'young' eyes for people over 40
A gel-like material being developed by scientists at the VA Hospital and Washington University in St. Louis could eventually mean the end of bifocals and contacts for millions of older people who suffer from presbyopia. The research will be presented Sept. 8 in New York at the 226th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. (2003-09-08)

In vitro study suggests acrylamide causes DNA damage
Acrylamide, a possible human carcinogen that has been found in a variety of fried and starch-based foods, appears to exert its mutagenicity (the capacity to induce mutations) by forming DNA adducts and introducing genetic mutations, according to a study in the June 18 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. DNA adducts can interfere with the DNA replication process and lead to mutations and, in theory, to tumor formation. (2003-06-17)

How acrylamide might be formed in starch-rich foods
A Cornell University chemist explains how acrylamide might form when starch-rich food is fried or baked. (2002-12-19)

Food expert says more tests needed before fried foods are tabled
A Purdue University foods and nutrition associate professor is one of the nation's experts invited to Chicago at the end of the month to discuss the discovery of a potential carcinogen in starchy, fried foods. (2002-10-24)

New research supports the link between cooking and carcinogens
The first peer-reviewed study of acrylamide levels in common foods suggests that cooking potato products can produce dangerous levels of this suspected carcinogen. The paper, which sparked the much-publicized announcement by the Swedish National Food Administration in the spring, reveals a clear temperature dependence of acrylamide formation and also gives detailed information about the analytical methods used to measure acrylamide levels.

Hydrogel nanoparticles provide foundation for tunable photonic crystals via controlled de-swelling
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a family of hydrogel-based nanoparticles that can be used to form photonic crystals whose optical properties can be precisely tuned by thermally adjusting the particles' water content. (2002-04-08)

New water-based process for manufacturing liquid polymers conserves hydrocarbon solvent and surfactants
Nalco Chemical Company of Naperville, Ill. received the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge award today for its development of a new environmentally-friendly way to make polymers used in wastewater treatment. The new process is safer, eliminates the need for organic solvents, is energy-efficient and utilizes waste by-products from other manufacturing processes. The awards were presented to five companies or individuals from a nationwide pool. (1999-06-28)

Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award recognizes environmentally-conscious business innovation
Small business, large chemical companies and academic researchers in Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania were honored today by the federal government for using (1999-06-28)
