NChem Research Highlights: Ionic liquids, electronic noses and tuning tubes
Morning everyone, it’s Research Highlights time.
Although sniffer dogs aren’t out of a job just yet, ‘electronic noses’ are getting better. Here’s one that combines peptides with Si nanowires to sniff out molecules in the gas phase.
A lot of work on porous materials is focused on the size of the pores, but it looks like subtle changes in the materials building blocks can affect the reactivity of guest molecules.
