(1) MIT: New insights on fusion power

David Chandler, MIT News Office
December 3, 2008

Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.

(2)Disappearing superconductivity reappears -- in 2-D

Scientists studying a material that appeared to lose its ability to carry current with no resistance say new measurements reveal that the material is indeed a superconductor -- but only in two dimensions. Equally surprising, this new form of 2-D superconductivity emerges at a higher temperature than ordinary 3-D superconductivity in other compositions of the same material.

"R&D Chemicals is a common and freely accessible chemicals catalog and directory of suppliers of products and services for research and development over the internet.

One of the biggest problems of traditional search engines like Google, Yahoo, AltaVista is that simple keyword-based queries often return vast amount of irrelevant information. Most of scientists’ time is inefficiently used in sieving of irrelevant information from the search engines. Also traditional search engines cannot search chemical compounds by structure and substructure. In this context, R&D Chemicals, a web site designed for the specific requirements of researchers and scientists, was created.

We hope to make contribution to development of the Internet for chemists especially working in the field of drug discovery in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry.

The goal of this project is to create a common and freely accessible database of chemicals and directory of companies providing products and services that support drug discovery in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry.

We are sorry for the advertisements everywhere, and we know they are annoying. We never wanted to keep advertisements on this website. But it will help make the site better in the long run.

If you would like to link to R&D Chemicals from your website, copy the following HTML code and paste it onto your site. We greatly appreciate every link provided to our pages.

The R&D Chemicals is a database of chemical compounds accessible over Internet. Its search engine allows you to find a chemical by its molecular formula, IUPAC name, common name, CAS number, catalog number, structure or substructure[1].
