(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.

Solvent Database

Solvent Database - General Chemistry

The nonprofit National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) offers an online solvent database called SOLV-DB. Users can choose to browse by eight categories: solvent name, chemical abstracts, sax number, chemical number, chemical formula, property category, matching range, and solvent synonym. Once presented, queries provide a list of physical properties such as specific gravity and boiling point, as well as links to regulatory data, environmental fate data, and health and safety data. The main page contains a how-to link that gives additional user information for this already well - designed and user-friendly resource.
