Scientists achieve direct electrocatalytic reduction of CO2

In order to effectively address global warming, scientists across the globe are finding ways to reduce CO2. Scientists at Tokyo Tech have proposed an innovative...
Starting from hydrogen cyanide, the one‐pot synthesis of cyanamide and precursors to simple sugars in water − using gamma rays in the presence of ammonium and chloride salts − offers a way forward for engineering complex mixtures that can evolve important, potentially prebiological compounds.

Common table salt may have been crucial for the origins of life

A standout amongst the most crucial unexplained question in modern day science is the means by which life started. Scientists for the most part...
Catalytic activity of subnano-sized metallic particles, Metallic nano-particles

Metallic nano-particles enlight another path towards eco-friendly catalysts

The oxidation of aromatic hydrocarbons is basically vital for delivering an extraordinary assortment of valuable natural exacerbates that are utilized all through a wide...
Visualization of changes in skin blood flow Imaging using laser-speckle flowgraphy revealed red colors, indicating higher skin blood flow, in the massaged area.

The science behind face massage rollers

Facial massagers are everywhere right now. Whether they're made of jade or rose quartz or some other fashionably colored crystal, these devices are far...

Scientists discovered a “switch” to increase starch accumulation in algae

In a new study, Tokyo Tech scientists have discovered a switch that can control the level of starch content in algae. The researchers demonstrated that starch...
(A) ancV1R emerged in the common ancestor of bony vertebrates (black circle) and was lost in each of the common ancestors (gray circles) of teleost fish and of turtles, alligators, and birds (gray dashed lines and silhouettes). White silhouette and dashed black lines associated with shark indicate that ancV1R has not yet emerged.

A pheromone-sensing gene that predates land-dwelling vertebrates

Researchers at Tokyo Tech have found a quality that seems to assume a fundamental job in pheromone detecting. The gene is moderated crosswise over...
A molecular model for regulating Rad51 nucleoprotein filament formation by the Swi5-Sfr1 complex. Swi5–Sfr1 stabilizes Rad51 on ssDNA primarily by preventing its dissociation. This stabilization effect leads to a stable nucleating cluster formation and a reduction in filament disassembly. Red half-arrows indicate the kinetic steps affected by SSwi5–Sfr1.

Scientists unraveling the molecular details of DNA recombination regulation

A worldwide group from National Taiwan University (NTU) and Tokyo Tech distinguished how DNA recombinational repair is directed in an ongoing work distributed in...

Breakthrough in blending metals

Multimetallic clusters- ordinarily made out of at least three metals - are earning consideration as they display properties that can't be accomplished by single-metal...
Structure of the proposed material Crystalline structure of the proposed material. The green dots represent cesium atoms, and the blue bodies correspond to the [Cu2I5]3− units that are confined between them. The cesium atoms plus the [Cu2I5]3− units can be regarded as core-shell structures, which enhance the photoluminescent properties of the material.

A new non-toxic, cheap, and stable blue photoluminescent material

Detailed understanding of light could help us create various optical and electronic devices for various applications. Quantum dots (QDs), exceptionally custom fitted nanoparticles that discharge...
