University of New Orleans researcher develops nontoxic corrosion inhibitor
In the current wave of environmental prudence and cost- cutting consciousness, University of New Orleans researcher developed a new, environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitor that could save the military and commercial airline industry millions of dollars in their war against corrosion. (2000-01-19)

Why paintings turn yellow
Dutch researchers have shown that when old-master paintings are cleaned, larger molecules of aged varnish can be left behind which actually seem to contribute to the yellowing of canvases and panels. The researchers were able to study particles of varnish taken from more than fifty paintings by such Dutch masters as Rembrandt, Steen and Van Gogh. (1999-09-17)

UMass polymer scientists: Tackiness is a matter of degrees
A team of French scientists is developing a coating that's sticky when a person touches it, but almost immediately cools to a slick, Teflon-like surface when the person lets go. University of Massachusetts polymer scientists Thomas Russell and Ho-Cheol Kim reviewed the findings in a recent issue of the journal, Science. (1999-08-30)

Gulf Coast environmental issues -- Tip sheet
Gulf Coast environmental issues are highlighted in several papers being presented at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, in New Orleans, Aug. 22 - 26. Subjects include toxic compounds in Gulf oysters, how weather affects ozone levels in the region, and the quality of Mississippi River water. All papers are embargoed until the time of presentation, unless otherwise noted. (1999-08-25)

NASA takes delivery of 100th space shuttle external tank
It's been the backbone of the Space Shuttle for 18 years, and now the 100th Space Shuttle External Tank has been delivered to NASA. (1999-08-16)

Microbes work magic on hazardous air pollutants
An advanced air-treatment system that uses a mélange of microbes to treat hazardous air emissions is the direct consequence of ONR-sponsored research at a small New Jersey company. (1999-08-10)

Vitamin C levels linked to amount of lead in blood
Despite the 1978 ban on lead-based paint for residential use, lead poisoning continues to be a serious public health threat, particularly for children because they are most susceptible to its effects. (1999-06-23)

How to vary the speed of a bullet so it won't kill your target
Guns can now be turned into non-lethal weapons with the twist of a dial, thanks to a new propellant developed by scientists in Tennessee. The invention may allow police to control rowdy demonstrators with rubber bullets fired at a slower speed so that they don't kill. (1999-06-09)

Animals' Behavior Can Hasten Their Extinction
These days a species' behavior may not be in its best interests because what works in undisturbed habitats may no longer apply in those altered by people. But most plans for conserving endangered species fail to account for behavior, says Michael Reed of Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. (1999-03-30)

Exploitation Of Workers Jeopardizing Academia, Authors Claim
If it's true that the devil's in the details, then there's plenty of Beelzebub in a new book about the destructive forces permeating U.S. academia. The authors, from the University of Illinois and Indiana University, paint a (1999-03-04)

X-Rays For Cars
A new device that X-rays coatings on car body parts will help manufacturers ensure that vehicles are properly protected from corrosion. (1998-10-29)

New Radio Antennas May Cool Car Interiors, Defrost Car Windows
Engineers at Ohio State University have found a way to convert two common car window components into AM/FM radio antennas. The marriage of these two technologies may lead to invisible radio antennas that not only receive AM and FM signals, but also defrost windshields and help keep car interiors cooler. (1998-10-29)

Rodent Cancer Data To Be Reviewed On Food Flavoring, Solvent, Cosmetic Ingredient, Anabolic Steroid And Embalming Fluid
National Toxicology Program Board of Scientific Councelors on Friday, Oct. 30, will peer review rodent cancer studies of five substances and the strength of any carcinogenic activity as interpreted by the NTP staff. The substances are: methyleugenol, oxymetholone, triethanolamine, ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, or 2-butoxyethanol and glutaraldehyde. (1998-10-28)

Turning "Unrecyclable" Waste Into Plastic Products
Often recyclers are left with an unpleasant pile of dark rank smelling scrap yard shredder waste that refuses to transform into anything intrinsically useful. But now researchers at the University of Warwick have found a way of using this unpleasant residue to form the basic structure of everyday plastic containers and components. (1998-09-04)

Polymer Breakthrough Solves A Sticky Problem
New SICOR polymer technology developed by CSIRO Australia has solved the problem of how to bond plastics and paints. (1998-04-23)

Environmental Impact Of Antifouling Paints And Tributyltin Regulations
The use of tributyltin (TBT) compounds in antifouling paints applied to ships has been regulated in many countries for some time. A symposium of 25 papers discusses many aspects of tributyltin compounds in the environment, including environmental fate and analysis, biomonitors and bioavailability, and trends and risks. (1998-04-01)

Paint Changes Color To Reveal Corrosion On Aircraft
Researchers are developing an early warning system for aircraft -- paint that changes color when the metal beneath it begins to corrode. While maintenance crews can search for corrosion with several high-tech tools, this may be less expensive and more sensitive, because it makes corrosion visible to the naked eye. (1998-03-26)

New Dinosaur Finds In Antarctica Paint Fuller Picture Of Past Ecosystem
A team of Argentinean and U.S. scientists has found fossils of a duck-billed dinosaur, along with remains of Antarctica's most ancient bird and an array of giant marine reptiles, on Vega Island off the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. (1998-02-06)

Static Sound Reverses Movement Of Particle
A particle in motion in a fluid causes eddies which slowly spread out, and in doing so also causes a sound wave (a density wave). That sound is rapidly transmitted further and only an eddy remains. However, computer simulations at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Physics of the NWO's Foundation for Fundamental Research in Matter have shown that the opposite occurs with particles in a narrow tube. The eddy is quickly absorbed but the sound wave remains and pushes the particle back. (1998-01-29)

Yale Study Looks At Ways To Identify And Prevent Occupational Asthma In Workers At Autobody Paint Shops
Researchers at Yale University School of Medicine have launched a study to determine how commonly used chemicals in autobody paint shops may cause or aggravate asthma. The study, Survey of Painters and Repairers in Autobodies by Yale (SPRAY), is also aimed at finding better ways to protect workers' health. (1997-12-03)

World Fisheries At Maximum Capacity, Scientists Warn
In a compendium of more than 25 peer-reviewed papers published this month by the American Fisheries Society, biologists and managers warn that new management schemes are needed to prevent the world's fisheries, which are already considered either fully or heavily exploited, from collapsing. (1997-11-21)

ORNL Pellet Blaster Makes Paint Stripping Quicker, Safer
The cryogenic pellet accelerator, developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, shoots about 25,000 frozen carbon dioxide pellets per second at speeds up to 330 meters per second. The pellets strip paint or other contaminants from the surface, leaving nothing else to clean up (1997-03-31)

Sandia Earns A+ On School Security Program Achievements White House Sent Account Of Success At New Mexico High School
A pilot school security program between Sandia National Laboratories and Belen High School (N.M.) is being credited for reducing vandalism by 75 percent, vehicle theft by 80 percent and truancy by 30 percent. In addition, fights, previously a weekl (1997-03-20)

UMass Polymer Scientist's Work In Surfaces Has Far-Reaching Implications
A University of Massachusetts professor has found a way to endow surfaces with precise qualities, such as their degrees of polarity or water absorption -- and all on a molecular scale. The research, by polymer scientist Thomas P. Russell, is detailed inthe March 7 issue of Science (1997-03-18)
