Antibiotic Supercharging Antibacterial Gold Particles

Researchers from the Southern University of Science and Technology and Fudan University in China and the University of Leeds in the UK teamed up to demonstrate an improved use of gold nano-particles in the fight against bacteria. The research shows that combined antibacterial methods using gold nano-particles successfully reduced the severity of the bacteria while also increasing the efficacy of antibiotics.

Solar Powered Hydrocarbon Production

Researchers at ETH Zurich have demonstrated a proof of concept solar power hydro-carbon production system which uses mirrors to heat reaction chambers that harvests CO2 and H2O from the air and converts them into liquid fuels like kerosene or methanol. If the technology was scaled up, 3.8 square kilometers of desert filled with these mirror converters could fuel a daily return flight from New York to London.
