Scientists develop nanomachines capable of killing cancer cells

November 23rd, 2017

Scientists develop nanomachines capable of killing cancer cells Motorized molecules that target diseased cells may deliver drugs to or kill the cells by drilling into the cell membranes. Scientists at Rice, Durham (U.K.) and North Carolina State universities have demonstrated them on cancer and other cells. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Chair in […]

Asphalt key to faster-charging lithium batteries

October 9th, 2017

Asphalt key to faster-charging lithium batteries A touch of asphalt may be the secret to high-capacity lithium metal batteries that charge 10 to 20 times faster than commercial lithium-ion batteries, according to Rice University scientists. The lab of chemist James Tour developed anodes comprising porous carbon made from asphalt that showed exceptional stability after more […]
