The smell of old books could help preserve them
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2019

Old books give off a complex mélange of odors, ranging from pleasant (almonds, caramel and chocolate) to nasty (formaldehyde, old clothes and trash). Detecting early signs of paper degradation could help guide preservation efforts, but most techniques destroy the very paper historians want to save. Now, researchers have developed an electronic nose that can non-destructively sniff out odors emitted by books of different paper compositions, conditions and ages.

Perovskite solar cells: Possible aspects of high efficiency uncovered
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2019

A team has demonstrated that hybrid halide perovskites crystallize without an inversion center. Interactions between the organic molecules and adjacent iodine atoms can lead to the formation of ferroelectric domains, which, indirectly, can result in higher solar-cell efficiencies. The formation of these ferroelectric domains cannot occur in purely inorganic perovskites.

World's oldest glue used from prehistoric times till the days of the Gauls
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2019

By studying artefacts that date back to the first 6 centuries AD through the lens of chemistry, archaeology, and textual analysis, researchers have discovered birch tar was being used right up to late antiquity, if not longer. The artefacts in question -- found in a region where birch is scarce, thus raising the question of how it was procured -- are testimony to the strength of tradition among the Gauls.

Researchers capture moving object with ghost imaging
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2019

Researchers have developed a way to capture moving objects with the unconventional imaging method known as ghost imaging. The new method could make the imaging technique practical for new applications such as biomedical imaging, security checks and video compression and storage.
