Recent Science Highlights

An Inside Look at a MOF in Action

Researchers have recorded the first in situ electronic-structure observations of the adsorption of carbon dioxide inside Mg-MOF-74, an open-metal-site MOF that has emerged as one of the most promising materials for capturing and storing greenhouse gases.

ALS Capabilities Reveal Multiple Functions of Ebola Virus

Researchers at the ALS have demonstrated that a protein of Ebola virus, termed VP40, undergoes dramatic refolding rearrangements to achieve three entirely different structures for three entirely separate functions in the virus life cycle.

Covalent Bonding in Actinide Sandwich Molecules

STXM studies have revealed unexpected bonding interactions in two key organometallic actinide "sandwich" complexes. The results serve as a guide to show how metal–carbon bonding can profoundly affect the reactivity and physical properties of organometallic molecules, which are vital as industrial and bioinorganic catalysts.

New ALS Technique Gives Nanoscale Views of Complex Systems

ALS researchers recently developed a broadband imaging technique that looks inside the mesoscale realm with unprecedented sensitivity and range. The new technique, called Synchrotron Infrared Nano-Spectroscopy (SINS), will enable in-depth study of complex molecular systems, including liquid batteries, living cells, novel electronic materials, and stardust.
