    Why FCAD Invested in Ionic Liquids?

    Low Melting Point Ever tried melting table salt? You can’t melt it in a kitchen because they have a melting point of 801○C! Table salt can easily be dissolved in water, but cannot be melted. This is due to the presence of cations and anions in salt. They pack well to each other, lose their

    What are Silver Nanowires?

    Brief Introduction of Nanowires Nanowires have a number of exciting properties which are not exhibited by 3-D or bulk materials. This is due to the fact that electrons within the nanowires are quantum confined and have energy levels that differ from that of the bulk materials. Nanowires are nanostructures with a diameter  in the order of

    Watson’s Novel CAP Attracts Global Attention in the mRNA Industry

    Background mRNA vaccines work by delivering mRNA that encodes for an antigen into human cells, where it is translated to produce the corresponding antigen protein, thereby inducing an effective immune response. The stability of mRNA, translation efficiency, and inherent immunogenicity are key to the success of mRNA as a therapeutic. The 5’ cap structure of
