Dozens of Neighbours Came to Different Cukrovarnická Experience


Michael Londesborough's borane show and Martin Ledinsky's non-Newtonian fluid has become, without precedent, the biggest hit of this year's neighbourhood festival called The Different City Experience. In addition to science popularization presentations, participants could sew a bag, play ping-pong or watch an evening laser show.

Scientists have found a new strategy for the synthesis of polymers unavailable so far


In the Nature Communications, Czech scientists in collaboration with their colleagues from Spain introduced a new type of polymers which have been unavailable by means of traditional methods applied so far. This polymer type could play an important part in the design of new components for nanoelectronics, such as new displays. At the same time, the researchers proved that molecular vibrations significantly influence the course of reactions on solid surfaces and can be used for purposive synthesis of conductive polymers.
