submitted by: enrico28

Nel cortometraggio "Io sono Einstein, Albert Einstein" viene raccontata la vita di un ragazzo di questo secolo (Abert) che riesce con la sua bravura a creare delle armi fortissime in grado di distruggere la città. Saranno però due amici a fargli cambiare idea e a fargli capire l'importanza e la bellezza della vita.

Investigating Structure Variation of Electrode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
Summary: Improving energy density, power density, cycle life and safety and decreasing cost of current Li-ion batteries are highly desirable for the applications of advanced portable electronic devices, electrical tools, electrical vehicles, storage batteries for renewable energy, and stationary batteries for smart grids. Understanding lithium storage mechanism and structure-property relationship across length scales are essential for rational design of new materials. Here we report our...

Diet composition is associated with endogenous formation of N-nitroso compounds in obese men

submitted by: silviagratz
Endogenous formation of carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds (NOC) occurs in the human gut. Red meat is considered the most important dietary component linked to NOC formation, although nitrate and vitamin C (VitC) also contribute. We previously showed that high-protein weight-loss diets increased fecal NOC and this was enhanced by simultaneous carbohydrate restriction. Although previous studies have focused on the effect of either 1 or 2 dietary components on endogenous NOC formation, no...

Rocket Evaporator

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
The Rocket™ Evaporator is a revolutionary solvent evaporator for use in laboratories seeking to spend minimal time and effort to process multiple samples for analysis. Concentration and evaporation is an important step in achieving accurate analytical results with sample extracts.The Rocket Evaporator automates this process, allowing the analyst to spend more time on other projects. The Rocket Evaporator can be used either to dry samples completely, or to concentrate them to a small...
