New chemical conversion process turns plastic waste into fuel

New chemical conversion process turns plastic waste into fuel

Almost 8 million plastics flow into the oceans each year. Plastic waste disposal, whether recycled or thrown away, does not mean the end of the...
RBCs, Blood infection

Blood infections need to be treated fast

Bloodstream infection (BSI) is one of the most devastating preventable complications in Critical Care Units. It has far-reaching consequences resulting in a prolonged length...
A new organic plastic allows electronics to function in extreme temperatures without sacrificing performance. (Purdue University photo/John Underwood)

High-temperature electronics? That’s hot

Most electronics only function within a certain temperature range. Now, scientists at Purdue University have blended two organic materials together and created electronics that can withstand extreme...
An eastern gray whale, pictured off the coast of Mexico, and its cousins to the west have similar levels of genetic diversity, though they have genetically diverged into two distinct subgroups, according to a Purdue University study. A genetic analysis of the whales suggests there are enough genetic resources between the populations to offer hope for the critically endangered populations to the west.

Genetic study provides new information about endangered whales

Seek after an alarmingly low number of grey whales in the western Pacific Ocean may rest with their cousins toward the east, as indicated...
A new tool developed by Purdue researchers would automatically identify and expose ways to make app features more energy-efficient, saving battery life. (Purdue University image/Kayla Wiles)

AI tool automatically reveals how to write apps that drain less battery

There are multiple applications available to do a single task. To do a single task, those apps consumes lots of battery and developers yet haven't...
Human centrioles labelled with antibodies against two proteins (Cep152, HsSAS-6) and imaged using super-resolution microscopy. From many individual particles showing projections of the centriole complex in various orientations (upper panel), by using a fused intermediate (yellow, lower panel), the newly developed method allows now to reconstruct a multicolor 3D model (lower panel) (credit: Christian Sieben/EPFL).

Super-resolution microscopy builds multicolor 3D from 2D

Purdue University, Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can "see" beyond the diffraction limit of light. The system has accumulated expanding interest as of...
Novosteo, a Purdue-affiliated startup, is advancing a technology shown to repair bone fractures faster and at greater benefit to a patient. The image above shows fractured femurs at four weeks post-fracture. The ‘Targeted’ bone received Novosteo’s injectable-targeted drug. Yellow and orange colors indicate higher density bone than purple and blue. (Image provided by Novosteo)

New drug to fast-tracks faster bone fracture healing

A broken bone is a pretty serious injury for anyone. According to the Journal of Internal Medicine, one in three adults aged 50 and older die...
Purdue University researchers have developed a unique approach using augmented reality tools to help less-experienced doctors in war zones, natural disasters and in rural areas perform complicated procedures. (Image provided)

New tools to help health care workers save lives in war zones, natural disasters,...

Purdue University analysts have built up a one of a kind approach that permits experienced specialists and doctors far and wide to help less-experienced...
