  • Library-on-a-Chip: Scientists Record Data on Nanoscale Layers of Metal-Organic Frameworks for First Time

    With the rapid data growth comes the issue of its storage. Year after year, the volume of information increases by leaps and bounds while solid-state drivers remain the most common way to store digital files. However, even though hard drivers are becoming more sustainable and compact, physical books still take up entire buildings. One of the possible solutions was proposed by students and researchers from ITMO University, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, and the Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry who demonstrated that large datasets can be stored using metal-organic nanometer plates.


  • Scientists Create New IR-Activated Coating for Local Drug Delivery

    The coating is based on active substances, in particular, bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2), loaded into the titania layer and modified by polypyrrole. If this coating is fabricated on the implant surface, it is possible to accelerate the injury recovery and to control this process using infrared radiation (IR).
