UMass research team builds something from (almost) nothing
A team of University of Massachusetts researchers has found a way to make molecules that are too tiny to be seen, under even the strongest microscopes, behave in a predictable and orderly way. The finding should have major implications in the development of faster computers and ultra-sensitive sensors, such as electronic (2000-04-11)

Northwestern researcher develops molecular method to improve plastics
A Northwestern University materials scientist has developed a novel method to improve polymers that could impact the plastics industry, optical communications, medicine and nanotechnology.This method improves polymers by changing the actual organization of the macromolecules using small molecules as additives, rather than changing the polymer's chemical structure as catalysts do. (2000-03-29)

Synthetic rubber kills germs on contact
The first synthetic rubber that kills bacteria and other pathogenic organisms on contact will be described March 27 at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco. The material -- whose killing power is renewable - - proved effective in laboratory tests against bacteria, according to researchers. (2000-03-26)

UMass scientists reports nanotech advance; findings to be detailed in the journal Nature
A UMass polymer scientist is among the researchers reporting a major step forward in nanoscopic pattern transfer in the Feb. 24 issue of the journal Nature. The findings have implications in paving the way for still-smaller integrated circuits, magnetic storage in computers, and on-chip sensors; all of this without the use of chemicals. (2000-02-22)

Honey, they've shrunk the logo: the science of the very small has very big ramifications, say UMass researchers
University of Massachusetts physicist Mark Tuominen may have some trouble finding a T-shirt small enough for the UMass logo recently sketched in his lab. Tuominen is researching nanotechnology, a field aimed at producing devices so small that they can only be seen with an electron microscope. Tuominen and graduate student Mustafa Bal recently created a UMass logo which is roughly the size of a red blood cell - some six micrometers in diameter. (2000-02-09)

Very thin polymer films still have the same stuff
Industry's push for thinner and thinner polymer films may one day hit the boundary where these films no longer behave the same as bulk polymers, but according to Penn State polymer scientists, the location of that boundary is still unknown. (1999-07-07)

Tiny Plastic Balls In Water Study Turbulence
Cornell University researchers release thousands of tiny solid polystyrene spheres, each about the size of a speck of dust, into flowing water and tracking their movement with a laser. The information they receive back explains how particles behave in a turbulent environment. (1999-03-28)

Snakes Alive! Hot Polymer Chains Bite Back At "Reptation" Foes, Suggesting Stronger Materials, UD Prof Reports
Stronger materials for aircraft, farm equipment, medical devices and consumer products may result from UD research showing how hot polymer chains coil back and snap forward, snake-like, leaving a telltale, rippling 'signature' wherever plastics are joined together. Published July 28 in Macromolecules, the study confirms the popular but controversial (1998-07-28)

New Electronic "Tongue" Can Taste What's In A Complex Mixture
Researchers at the University of Texas in Austin have designed an electronic tongue that works along the same lines as the taste buds in a human tongue. The electronic tongue uses chemical sensors that could soon be used to monitor the quality of bottled mineral water. (1998-07-15)

Columbia Chemist Develops Fluorescing Sensors; Applications Seen In Medical Diagnostics, Research
Columbia University chemist Clark Still has built molecular sensors that glow bright green when they bind to tripeptides. The sensors, when developed into a family of laboratory tools that could bind precisely to small biological molecules, could have applications in medical diagnostics, environmental sensing and biological research. (1998-02-06)
