Scientists develop chemistry needed to create marijuana breathalyzer

UCLA chemists have reported the key chemical discovery necessary for the creation of a small, electronic marijuana breathalyzer. The research is published in Organic Letters, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Chemical Society. The legalization...
Research finds stronger links between automation and inequality

Research finds stronger links between automation and inequality

Modern technology affects different workers in different ways. In some white-collar jobs — designer, engineer — people become more productive with sophisticated software at their side. In other cases, forms of automation, from robots...
Study: Microorganisms in parched regions extract needed water from colonized rocks

Study: Microorganisms in parched regions extract needed water from colonized rocks

In Northern Chile’s Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on Earth, microorganisms are able to eke out an existence by extracting water from the very rocks they colonize. Through work in the field and...
Study: Telehealth solutions in home dementia care

Study: Telehealth solutions in home dementia care

Telehealth delivery of dementia care in the home can be as effective as face-to-face home visit services if carers and recipients take advantage of the technologies available, Australian researchers say. The study of 63 people...
Plastic Pollution reaching Antarctica, According to Study

Plastic Pollution reaching Antarctica, According to Study

New findings include analyses of some of the longest continuous datasets in the world on plastics ingested by seabirds and washed up on beaches, and insights into where this plastic originates. They also highlight...
Researchers invent nanoparticle that could improve treatment for bone defects

Researchers invent nanoparticle that could improve treatment for bone defects

A team of biomaterials scientists and dentists at the UCLA School of Dentistry has developed a nanoparticle that, based on initial experiments in animals, could improve treatment for bone defects. A paper describing the advance...
Study: Applying mathematics to accelerate predictions for capturing fusion energy

Study: Applying mathematics to accelerate predictions for capturing fusion energy

The technique combines the millisecond behavior of fusion plasmas into longer-term forecasts. By using it, "we were able to demonstrate that accurate predictions of quantities such as plasma temperature profiles and heat fluxes could...
Study: Soil carbon and nitrogen mineralization after the initial flush of CO2

Study: Soil carbon and nitrogen mineralization after the initial flush of CO2

Healthy soil should have abundant nitrogen to supply plant growth needs, but it should not all be in the inorganic fraction. Rather, organic nitrogen is the preferred storage warehouse from which soil microorganisms can...
Scientists reveal the mechanisms behind a natural bacteria killer

Scientists reveal the mechanisms behind a natural bacteria killer

Scientists are one step closer to adapting the bacteria-killing power of a naturally occurring nanomachine, a tiny particle that performs a mechanical action. In a study published in Nature, a UCLA-led team of researchers describe...
