One of the insidious features of cancer is that it has the ability to prevent the immune system from recognizing the diseased cells as ‘non-self.’ Immune checkpoint inhibitors, as chemotherapeutics, act to eliminate this feature of cancer and enable the immune system to attack it. Recently, researchers from Harvard Medical School, Hamad Bin… Show more

By Mr. Philip Krook, Communications Officer, ChemSec Last week I heard a word that I had never heard before. It was a term explaining a phenomenon that has skyrocketed in the last years. The word was uberization. At the time, I could already guess the meaning behind the expression seeing as I knew about the company from which the term is… Show more

What is the perfect solution for preserving a rose using - H2O, Sodium Hypochlorite, and Acetic Acid?
I am trying to create a solution to preserve a rose in a globe for around 30 days. I am trying to mix water, with Sodium Hypochlorite, and Acetic Acid. I can not get the mixture correct. Any idea on the ideal amount of those three ingredients? I know that can be a dangerous mix and do not want to make chlorine gas. Any help would be great!
You are not clear in what it is you are trying to do. You are trying to preserve a rose in a globe - do you mean just the flower, or the flower with a stem? The approach you are mentioning here is similar to what flower distributors do with the water they put cut flowers in, but it is intended to discourage bacteria, mold and fungus from growing…
so i know that When you light a candle, the heat of the flame melts the wax near the wick. This liquid wax is then drawn up the wick by capillary action. The heat of the flame vaporizes the liquid wax (turns it into a hot gas), and starts to break down the hydrocarbons into molecules of hydrogen and carbon. so the wax is whats burning as the fuel.… Show more

From a bench scientist to a group leader, many scientists can manage the transition as their careers advance. But from a group leader to an HR manager responsible for a full range of duties that support functions of more than 500 employees, and then to a technology manager responsible for coordination between organizations with varied functions… Show more
Often, in cancer, nucleolin is overexpressed on the surface which allows it to be used as a target for drug-delivery. Recently, researchers at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences (Iran) utilized PLGA-PEG-COOH (PolyVivo AI076) from PolySciTech (www.polyscitech.com) to generate anti-nucleolin decorated nanoparticles for cancer targeting. This… Show more

Hey my name is Taleesha and I have a passion for creating a makeup line. I know i would have to find a chemist and i don’t really know how to go about doing that. I know exactly what kind of makeup i would like to create but i think it starts with this. Can anyone give me any pointers ?
Glad you liked Gwen's story, Taleesha. I really hope things work out well for you as they are for her. But I have to apologize for the stuff about where I worked and how we found the specialized communities-- Steven asked me a question about that and I meant to reply directly to him. Thanks for taking it nicely. Mike
