3-D printed sugar scaffolds offer sweet solution for tissue engineering, device manufacturing
News: 3-D printed sugar scaffolds offer sweet solution for tissue engineering, device manufacturing
University of Illinois engineers built a 3-D printer that offers a sweet solution to making detailed structures that commercial 3-D printers can’t: Rather than a layer-upon-layer solid shell, it produces a delicate network of thin ribbons of hardened isomalt, the type of sugar alcohol used to make throat lozenges.

Researchers find value in unusual type of plant material
News: Researchers find value in unusual type of plant material
An ideal biorefinery would turn renewable crops into a variety of fuels and products with little waste. A significant challenge in realizing this vision is what to do with lignin, a fibrous and difficult-to-break-down material in the cell walls of plants that gives them their sturdiness.

Harvesting solar fuels through a bacterium’s unusual appetite for gold
News: Harvesting solar fuels through a bacterium’s unusual appetite for gold
A bacterium named Moorella thermoacetica won’t work for free. But UC Berkeley researchers have figured out it has an appetite for gold. And in exchange for this special treat, the bacterium has revealed a more efficient path to producing solar fuels through artificial photosynthesis.
