Thin epitaxial Ru films have been grown on Al2O3(0001) by magnetron sputtering. Characterization by ion beam techniques show that they are of very good epitaxial quality and allow further growth of nanostructures on top

Colloidal cuboids have an especially rich phase behaviour and the potential to self-assemble into biaxial nematic liquid crystals.

Combined aircraft measurements and model simulations show that dust is a source of reactive iodine. The added dust iodine leads to significant regional tropospheric ozone depletion. The results are reported in Science Advances

Two Greenland ice cores reveal that abrupt climate warming and sea ice retreat in the Arctic preceded maximum iodine levels, reaching peak concentrations during interglacial periods.

Among the (+)ssRNA eukaryotic viruses, flexible filamentous plant viruses are plant pathogens that contain a monopartite (+)ssRNA genome protected by hundreds of copies of their coat protein (CP) arranged in helical mode.

Sphingolipids (SL) are ubiquitous minor lipids in mammalian cell membranes, yet there is little data on the behavior of cells under SL-restriction conditions.

This work, recently published in Nature Communications, has been featured on the Editor's Highlights webpage called "Catalysis", which reports cutting edge research across the field of catalysis.

Two endolysins with high anti-pneumococcal activity have been structurally and functionally characterized by scientists from the IQFR, CIB and Salamanca University.
