A look at Yang’s greener dyeing technique

Yiqi YangYiqi Yang and colleagues have been working to find a more environmentally friendly way to dye plant-based fabrics. The team has found that by dissolving dyes in cottonseed oil (instead of water) they can use less dye, reuse more dye, they don’t need to use salts, can get the same colors as with other techniques, and the waste produced contains mostly biodegradable products.

Study points to non-Newtonian force affecting particles’ flight

Herman BatelaanHerman Batelaan and colleagues recently decided to explore two theories explaining the nature of the Aharonov-Bohm effect. In their results, the team showed mathematically that the two theories are two special cases of one overarching theorem. (5/30/19)
