Medical Innovation with Synthetic Hydrogel

A group of scientists, engineers, and physicists at McGill University hope to improve therecovery period from various surgeries with the use of a synthetic hydrogel biomaterial. The hydrogelcan theoretically repair muscles including heart tissue and vocal cords. The challenge was to makebiomaterial strong enough to be protective, while being able to withstand the body’s everydaymovements.…

Research into Boron Nanosheets leads to an Electrifying Discovery

Amorphous boron is a nonmetallic element that is often used in rockets as a fuel source and for certain pyrotechnic flares that produce a green tinted flame. It is rarely found in pure form with compounds such as boric acid, sodium borate aka. borax, and boric oxide. Common uses for boron over the years have been…
