A leader in supramolecular self-assembly, Samuel I. Stupp is being honored for his work on developing bioactive materials that could revolutionize therapies in regenerative medicine. Stupp is well-known for creating an extensive platform of self-assembling molecules, especially those based on peptide amphiphiles that form nanofibers, resulting in broadly bioactive synthetic materials......more

In nature, biological functions are often carried out in tiny protective shells known as microcompartments, structures that provide home to enzymes that convert carbon dioxide into energy in plant cells and to viruses that replicate once they enter the cell.......more
New Computer Memory Material Goes Easy on the Juice

Multitasking has a price: Your computer is sucking up a lot of electricity keeping track of work you haven't yet saved to the hard drive. Americans spend $6 billion a year on electricity to keep that data stored in a computer's memory during operation. But that figure could drop sharply, scientists report this week, thanks to a new type of material than can permanently store such data—without needing a continuous trickle of electricity to do it.......more
Toward Better Ferroelectrics

New organic ferroelectric materials that operate at room temperature made their debut at the American Chemical Society national meeting in Philadelphia this week. Scientists have in the past synthesized ferroelectrics of this type—mixed stacks of electron-donating and electron-accepting small molecules. But the materials had only been able to function at cryogenic temperatures, which are impractical for real-world use.
Ferroelectrics, found in ultrasound imaging equipment and computer memory, are prized for their ability to flip polarization when exposed to an external electric field. Because the materials are currently made of inorganic compounds such as barium titanate, researchers have been seeking alternatives that are cheaper, lighter, and easier to fabricate.......more
