Carbon black implicated in emphysemaCarbon black implicated in emphysema
Researchers at Rice, Baylor College of Medicine analyze nanoparticles found in smokers’ lungs
Physicians could only guess – until recently – at the composition of the black material found in the lungs of smokers who died of emphysema. (October 6, 2015)


Smaller is better for nanotube analysisSmaller is better for nanotube analysis
Rice University’s variance spectroscopy technique advances nanoparticle analysis
In a great example of “less is more,” Rice University scientists have developed a powerful method to analyze carbon nanotubes in solution.  (September 28, 2015)


Deep-diving whales could hold answer for synthetic bloodDeep-diving whales could hold answer for synthetic blood
Study shows how marine mammals pack muscle cells with oxygen-holding protein
The ultra-stable properties of the proteins that allow deep-diving whales to remain active while holding their breath for up to two hours could help Rice biochemist John Olson and his colleagues finish a 20-year quest to create lifesaving synthetic blood for human trauma patients.  (September 25, 2015)

Science provides new way to peer into poresScience provides new way to peer into pores
Rice University lab finds technique to characterize nanoscale spaces in porous materials
Rice University scientists led a project to “see” and measure the space in porous materials, even if that space is too small or fragile for traditional microscopes.  (September 9, 2015)


Researchers find new clue to halting leukemia relapseResearchers find new clue to halting leukemia relapse
Rice, Baylor, MD Anderson team creates molecule that attacks chemo-inhibiting protein
A protein domain once considered of little importance may be key to helping patients who are fighting acute myeloid leukemia (AML) avoid a relapse.  (September 8, 2015)


Rice researchers demo solar water-splitting technologyRice researchers demo solar water-splitting technology
Process uses light-harvesting nanoparticles, captures energy from ‘hot electrons’
Rice University researchers have demonstrated an efficient new way to capture the energy from sunlight and convert it into clean, renewable energy by splitting water molecules.  (September 4, 2015)


For 2-D boron, it’s all about that baseFor 2-D boron, it’s all about that base
Rice University theorists show flat boron form would depend on metal substrates
Rice University scientists have theoretically determined that the properties of atom-thick sheets of boron depend on where those atoms land.  (September 2, 2015)
