Bee grooming behaviour could improve microelectromechanical cleaning

A study on the grooming habits of bees has given new physical insight into the process of pollination, and could have implications for future MEMS. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, USA, and Kiel University in Germany, examined how pollenating insects that purposely cover themselves with millions of pollen particles get clean enough to fly. Their study, published in the journal Bioinspriation and Biomimetics, found that the key lies in the tiny hairs bees and other pollinators are covered in.

Solvent degreasers for electrical equipment

NCH Europe now offers solvent degreasers for use on electrical, mechanical and electronic equipment. The range is said to be especially useful for the heavy-duty cleaning of electrical installations, where fast evaporation time minimises downtime and mitigates the risk of electrical fires caused by alternative water-based degreasers.

Method traps harmful gases with microscopic structures

Method traps harmful gases with microscopic structures
A team of researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas has developed a novel method for trapping potentially harmful gases within microscopic organo-metallic structures. These metal organic frameworks, or MOFs, are made of different building blocks composed of metal ion centers and organic linker molecules. Together they form a honeycomb-like structure that can trap gases within each comb, or pore.
