New magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents based on organic metal-free dendrimers

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a commonly used clinical imaging technique for noninvasive diagnosis and characterization of soft tissues. The technique provides images in excellent detail of tumors and related pathological conditions thanks to the contrast agents used in the procedure.

Scientists develop a device that differentiates, in a single step and without markers, tumour cells from healthy cells

A CSIC team has designed a method and a device that differentiates, in a single analysis, different cells or particles present in a fluid. The prototype has been tested, and the results have been published and featured on the cover of ACS Sensors. The system has been patented and now the scientific team is looking for companies interested in a license agreement for its commercial exploitation.

Switch device for high power and radioactive environments

CSIC scientists at the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica have developed a novel JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor) which is very suitable for high-power devices and radioactive environments, where conventional JFET fail. Due to its particular configuration, the device presents very high radiation hardness.

Transformation of used batteries in biocatalysts: circular and sustainable economy

A team from the Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas of the CSIC (CIB-CSIC) has developed an application for the sustainable reuse of components of dead batteries. The scientists have synthesized esters by biocatalysis, using the material obtained from the black mass of batteries and an enzyme, through a selective and clean reaction.

Tunable reverse photochromic materials for rewritable devices

Researchers from the CSIC and the UAB university, in the Nanosfun group at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) have developed a straightforward strategy to obtain solid materials which change colour when they are exposed to visible light. These materials might find application in multicolored rewritable devices.
