The influence of these carbonaceous deposits on the interaction of H2 with Pd is analyzed by ...

It can cause food poisoning when we are infected, therefore, it is necessary to detect pathogenic bacteria. The virulence genes and detection methods of S. aureus are summarized from literatures. Traditional detection methods are simple but need bacteria enrichment and to prolong detection time. Immunological technology has hig...

(Duke University) Scientists from Duke University have developed a model that can predict the amount of mercury being released into a local ecosystem from deforestation. The research could point toward ways to mitigate the worst effects of mercury poisoning in regions already experiencing elevated mercury levels caused by small-scale gold mining practices, such as those in the Peruvian Amazon.
