Smog hanging over cities is the most familiar and obvious form of air pollution. But there are different kinds of pollution—some visible, some invisible.
Generally any substance that people introduce into the atmosphere that has damaging effects on living things and the environment is considered air pollution.
Air pollution through the ozone, nitrogen dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particulate dust puts a burden on the environment and impairs human health.
Especially now, during the lazy and hazy days of the summer months air pollution is being worse than in the winter time.
Days are longer, there is more sunlight and generally more stability in the atmosphere which leads into stagnant air. The air doesn’t move, it just “sits and cooks”.
Emissions that cause air pollution come from different sources, like power plants, cars, planes, ships etc. To limit emissions, they need to be measured.
Heraeus Noblelight develops analytical lamps that enable cost-efficient and reproducible precise analysis.
Photoionisation detection lamps (PID) for example are most commonly used in VOC gas detection, in gas chromatography (GC) and sample ionization for mass spectrometry.
Whilst high-intensity Deuterium lamps are the ideal choice for high-end HPLC instruments or UV-Vis spectrophotometer.

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
