2020.11.18 WednesdayScientists develop an energy-efficient strategy to reversibly change "spin orientation" or magnetization direction in magnetite at room temperatureSpintronics-based on the principles of electron charge and magnetic spin-goes beyond the limits of conventional electronics. However, spintronic devices are yet to see advances, because controlling the magnetization angle in the magnetic material is difficult. Now, scientists have developed an all-solid redox device composed of magnetite thin film and a solid electrolyte containing lithium ions that successfully manipulated...

2020.11.17 TuesdayScientists have uncovered a method of combining natural organic compounds which can create anticancer drugs with minimal side effects.Scientists from the Tokyo University of Science have made a breakthrough in the development of potential drugs that can kill cancer cells. They have discovered a method of synthesizing organic compounds that are four times more fatal to cancer cells and leave non-cancerous cells unharmed. Published in the American Chemical Society Omega, their research can assist in the creation of new anticancer drugs with minimal side effects.In the past...

2020.07.14 TuesdayScientists discover for the first time that oxytocin could be a potential new therapeutic option for cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's diseaseAlzheimer's disease progressively degrades a person's memory and cognitive abilities, often resulting in dementia. Amid efforts to find novel treatments for this disease, a recent breakthrough study by scientists from Japan shows that oxytocin―the hormone that we commonly know to induce feelings of love and well-being―can also effectively reverse some of the damage caused by amyloid plaques in the learning and memory center of...

2020.07.13 MondayA novel lab-on-a-chip device reveals the blood type within minutes, holding much potential for use in an emergencyThe need to first zero in on a blood group can delay blood transfusions in emergency situations, and this in turn can prove fatal. Thus, to speed up the process, a team of scientists from Tokyo University of Science, Japan, has developed a lab-on-a-chip device that can not only tell the blood type within five minutes but allows medical staff to read the results through simple visual inspections.Blood transfusion, if performed promptly, is a potentially...

2020.06.23 TuesdayScientists developed a novel laser-based strategy for the effective degradation of cellulose into useful productsThe plant product cellulose is the most abundant form of biomass globally and can be converted into useful products such as biofuels. However, the processing of this biopolymer is cumbersome, owing to its rigid, water-insoluble structure. To overcome this, scientists in Japan recently developed a novel laser-based technique that makes cellulose degradation easier. Because this reaction does not require harsh conditions, it can lead to efficient application of...

A Radar for Plastic: High-Resolution Map of 1 km Grids to Track Plastic Emissions in Seas | Tokyo University of Science

2020.05.07 ThursdayScientists in Japan develop a new method to track plastic emissions from land to seaPlastic waste often ends up in river bodies and oceans, posing a serious threat to the marine ecosystem. To prevent the accumulation of plastic debris, we must find out where plastic emission is prevalent. To this end, scientists in Japan have come up with a new method to track plastic emissions from inland areas to sea. This method is useful to identify the "hotspots" of plastic emission and can even help to implement appropriate measures to avoid plastic pollution.Plastic may be an...
