Latest developments from scientists at Germany's University of Bayreuth
A new study has investigated how BPA and BPS plasticizers impact nerve cells in the adult brain, with the authors finding that they can permanently disrupt signal transmission, and also interfere with neural circuits involved in perception.
In an effort to better understand how microplastics are absorbed by organisms in aquatic environments, scientists have carried out a study that shows how a coating of biomolecules can act as a "Trojan horse" that sneaks them into living cells.
Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have created a form of nitrogen that’s never been seen before. Nicknamed “black nitrogen,” the new substance is crystalline, occurs in two-dimensional sheets, and could be useful in advanced electronics.
Different materials can play different roles when it comes to trapping and dissipating heat. But could one material have it both ways? A new breakthrough suggests that it could, made by scientists who believe heat needn’t just be a one way street.
