Aging, Inflammation, and Brain Biochemistry


What does it mean to become old? One standard definition is that our bodies become less resistant to disease. The aging process involves chemistry—a rather complex chemistry. However, modern science is at a loss to fully understand it. Moreover, aging well comes with no hard and fast rules.

Self-cleaning Surfaces Resistant to Abrasion and Contamination

Treated glass surface.

Researchers from University College London (UK) developed a new paint which, when applied on surfaces, makes them superhydrophobic (very water repellant) and self-cleaning. Such surfaces are resistant to abrasion and handling; moreover, they maintain their properties even if contaminated with oil. These characteristics make them suitable for new everyday applications. Self-cleaning Surfaces Self-cleaning surfaces are […]
