A team of scientists from Rice University, Texas, USA, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, Bruker Nano Surfaces, Minnesota, USA and Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, Gujarat have developed a new way to exfoliate a 2 dimensional metal sheet, few layers o even up to a single layer of atoms thick. The novel method, the scientists claim, could be used to make metal sheets of low-melting pure metals and alloys.

Our brain is a ballroom echoing with humming footsteps of exquisite dancers a.k.a 'brain waves'. Synchronised electrical pulses from neurons communicating with each other produce these brain waves that ricochet throughout the brain. They skillfully route information in a way that allows the brain to choose which signals should be considered vital.

In a new study, researchers from the Indian Institute of Science, have found that ten confined water molecules play a significant role in keeping the insulin molecules together. In their findings published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry, the researchers have used computer models to study how water molecules help in stabilising the structure of insulin for storage in our body.
