Carbon chains can adopt fusilli or spaghetti type shapes depending if they have odd or even numbers of atoms
Carbon chains can adopt fusilli or spaghetti type shapes depending if they have odd or even numbers of atoms
Scientists at the University of Bristol have now found that carbon chains can also adopt helical shapes, but, unlike DNA, the shape is dependent on how many atoms there are in the chain, with chains having even numbers of carbon atoms adopting helical, fusilli-like shapes and chains with odd numbers of carbon atoms adopting floppy, spaghetti-like shapes.

Oil-catching sponge could soak up residue from offshore drilling
Oil-catching sponge could soak up residue from offshore drilling
An oil-catching sponge, developed at the University of Toronto and Imperial, could help thwart water contamination from offshore oil drilling. Drilling and fracking for oil under the seabed produces 100 billion barrels of oil-contaminated wastewater each year by releasing tiny oil droplets into surrounding water.

Toxic chemicals hindering the recovery of Britain’s rivers
Toxic chemicals from past decades could be hindering the recovery of Britain's urban rivers, concludes a recent study by scientists from Cardiff University, the University of Exeter, and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. During the 1970s, over 70% of the rivers in the South Wales valleys were classified as grossly polluted, by a combination of poor sewage treatment, colliery waste and industrial discharge.

’Molecular hopper’ created, small enough to move single DNA strands
Researchers from the University of Oxford have constructed a "molecular hopper", capable of moving single strands of DNA through a protein nanotube. The tiny hopper works by making and breaking in sequence simple chemical bonds that attach it to a nanoscale track. This can be turned on, off or reversed by a small electrical potential, which ultimately might make it suitable for use in nanopore DNA sequencing devices.
