PolyU develops novel self-fitting scaffold for bone regeneration

Researchers from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) have designed and fabricated a high performing self-fitting bone scaffold by combining a shape memory foam and hydroxyapatite (the principal mineral component of bone tissue).

 
Pinpointing mutations that give bacteria antibiotic resistance

A new method to analyse a commonly understood route for antibiotic resistance could lead to earlier detection of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

 
Too hot for rice?

Farmers will need to know how rising temperatures in Thailand will affect their rice crops.

 
Converting Carbon Dioxide into Methane or Ethane Selectively

Korean researchers developed high-efficiency photocatalysts that convert carbon dioxide into methane or ethane with graphene-covered reduced titanium dioxide. The finding is expected to be utilized in the carbon dioxide reduction and recycling industries.

 
Creation and Selective Functionalization of Virus-Like Polymer Particles

Researchers at Tohoku University in Japan have collaborated with others to develop a simple way to create and functionalize virus-like polymer particles that have various nanostructures. The collaboration includes researchers from Michigan University in the USA and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany.
