A research team of the University of Granada has managed to produce the most useful material to date to eliminate pollutants such as benzene, toluene and xylene, organic solvents widely used in the hydrocarbon industry and generated by road traffic in cities. The world-wide problem of the exposure to aromatic hydrocarbons has mainly focused its attention on benzene, which is considered to be harmful to health, even in low concentrations.This material is a monolithic carbon (...)
A group of scientists from 17 countries, formed by researchers of the Universidad de Granada, has proved that the sources of the most energetic particles ever detected do not come from directions uniformly distributed in the firmament, but they aim at areas in which there are galaxies with active nuclei in the centre from a relatively close distance. Scientists of the Pierre Auger Collaboration have announced in Malargüe (Mendoza, Argentina) that the Active Galactic Nuclei (...)
Water or food of natural origins (from plants or animals) that we consume on a daily basis can contain unwanted ‘supplies’ for our organism, such as pesticides or antibiotics. A doctoral thesis carried out by Jorge Juan Soto Chinchilla, from the Department of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Granada (Universidad de Granada), and directed by professors Ana María García Campaña and Laura Gámiz Gracia, proposes new analysis methods for the detection of pesticide residue (...)
José Rivera Utrilla and Manuel Sánchez Polo, who are both scientists from the department of Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Granada, have designed a material that can dispose of 100 % of the halide ions such as bromide, iodide and chloride in the water used for human consumption. Under certain conditions, the presence of these ions gives the water undesired properties and, in the worst case scenario, they cause the creation of highly (...)
Next 15 December IRAIT telescope (International Robotic Antarctic Infrared Telescope), will be on board the ship Italica, towards the Antarctica. IRAIT has been possible thanks to the cooperation of Spanish scientists of the University of Granada (Universidad de Granada) and Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia, and Italian researchers of the Universidad de Perugia and Teramo Observatory.IRAIT will start observations during the winter of 2007 (Antarctic summer). It is the first astronomical project inside (...)
The research group of ‘Physics of Interfaces and Colloidal Systems’ of the Universidad de Granada, headed by professors Fernando González Caballero and Juan de Dios García Durán, works on producing fluids with properties that change when an external magnetic field is applied, as in the case of a magnet. These are known as “intelligent fluids” and can be used in several areas, from hard industry to orthopaedic medicine and implants.The fluids mentioned above consist of (...)
The Universidad de Granada (UGR) and the Spanish Challenge for 2007 America’s Cup will remain historically linked, thanks to an agreement in which the University becomes the technical collaborator of the team representing Spain in the most important sail competition in the world. The technicians of the Wind Engineering Department of the Andalusian Centre for the Environment (CEAMA), coordinated by José María Terrés-Nicoli, will test the sensors of the ships participating in next year’s competition, (...)
Who discovered and analysed geometrical objects such as the square and the circle? According to several studies, geometry started in Egypt. The seasonal flooding of the Nile led farmers to measure the areas in order to know which plot of land belonged to each farmer after the floods receded. Geometry (from the Greek ‘geo’, earth and ‘metrein’, to measure), is the branch from Mathematics which studies the properties of space, and Isabel Fernández Delgado, a (...)
The fight against drugs if the different sport disciplines is one of the main objectives of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), to which the group ‘Analytical, environmental, biochemical and food control’ of the department of Analytical Chemistry of the Universidad de Granada has contributed. The researchers, directed by professors Alberto Fernández Gutiérrez and Antonio Segura Carretero, have designed an optical sensor that allows to determine the presence of propanolol (a beta inhibitor used as (...)
A team of scientists of the University of Granada has developed a new analysis technique that will guarantee the restoration and preservation of the oldest manuscripts of the city, relegated up to now to the lowest position. The method, developed by researchers of the departments of Painting and Analytical Chemistry in collaboration with the Institute of Materials Sciences of Seville, and the archives of the Royal Chancellery of Granada, Provincial Historic Museum of Granada and (...)
