    "The solar cells that power solar aircraft are called photovoltaic (PV) cells. PV cells are made of materials that absorb light energy. The PV cells in most solar planes are made of silicon. Silicon is both lightweight and efficient, so it is the best choice for solar planes where the challenge is to create an aircraft light enough to fly but with enough power to get off the ground."

ChemWiki: The Dynamic Chemistry Textbook - ChemWiki - 0 views

  •  
    "The ChemWiki project is a collaborative approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written partly by students and partly by faculty members resulting in a free Chemistry textbook to supplement conventional paper-based books. Success of the project will be gauged by the number of students who consult the ChemWiki and the number of Chemistry courses that eventually adopt the ChemWiki as the sole textbook for class needs."

Acid rain, from USGS Water-Science School - 0 views

  •  
    "Geographic distribution of acid rain

    Acidity in rain is measured by collecting samples of rain and measuring its pH. To find the distribution of rain acidity, weather conditions are monitored and rain samples are collected at sites all over the country. The areas of greatest acidity (lowest pH values) are located in the Northeastern United States."

    Students will be able to describe the motion of the particles in solids, liquids, and gases.
    - The particles of a gas move quickly and are able to spread apart from one another.
    - The particles of a liquid are able to move past each other.
    - The particles of a solid are not able to move out of their positions relative to one another, but do have small vibrational movements."

2 American Scientists Win Nobel Prize in Chemistry - NYTimes.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Two Americans shared this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry for deciphering the communication system that the human body uses to sense the outside world and send messages to cells - for example, speeding the heart when danger approaches. The understanding is aiding the development of new drugs. The winners, Dr. Robert J. Lefkowitz, 69, a professor at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute researcher, and Dr. Brian K. Kobilka, 57, a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine in California, "

    "spectrometers into people's hands -- lots of them. For as little as $35, you can now get your own kit and start scanning different materials in your backyard, neighborhood, or household. With one of our latest prototypes -- a spectrometer that attaches to your smartphone (see above) -- we hope to make spectrometry available to anyone,"

    "As we approach the Mars rover Curiosity's landing Sunday night, we're having a lot of fun seeing all the promotions - there are all kinds of videos, museum exhibits and road shows to help explain what the newest interplanetary explorer will do. Below is a great new one from the American Chemical Society.

    Curiosity is a well-equipped geologist, traveling to Mars with a suite of tools to bake and pulverize rock, but it's also a trained chemist, capable of detecting the ingredients necessary for life as we know it. It's the first explorer to be able to do this. "

Toughened silicon sponges may make tenacious batteries - 0 views

  •  
    Researchers have found a way to make multiple high-performance anodes from a single silicon wafer. The process uses simple silicon to replace graphite as an element in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, laying the groundwork for longer-lasting, more powerful batteries for such applications as commercial electronics and electric vehicles.

Periodic Table of the Elements for iPad on the iTunes App Store - 0 views

  •  
    "This is a standard periodic table of the elements - a necessity for anyone interested in or even exposed chemistry. However, the version differs in that instead of cramming all the information for an element into one little square, you can select a chemical attribute and have the entire chart color coded to plainly show how the different elements vary "

Heaviest elements yet join periodic table - physics-math - 03 June 2011 - New Scientist - 1 views

  •  
    "Elements 114 and 116 have been officially added to the periodic table, becoming its heaviest members yet. They both exist for less than a second before decaying into lighter atoms, but they bring researchers a step closer to making even heavier elements that are predicted to be stable for decades or longer, forming a fabled "island of stability" in the periodic table."
