Which means 23-25 is highly resistant to ethanol.

The thing that caught our interest was that this organism that strange habit making vinegar from ethanol has , which means 23-25 is highly resistant to ethanol, which grow very few things and resistant to acetic acid , which fewer things fewer things, Kappock said.

Acid-resistantnt bug does not give in, either alcoholA chemist at Washington University in St. Louis has found surprisingly tough enzymes in a bacterium that ‘just says no to acid. ‘Acid resistance is a valued trait for both pills and human pathogens. The bacterium Acetobacter been makes unusually acid-resistant enzymes in spades that make the organism a source for new enzyme products and new directions in protein chemistry could. ‘But until recently, no one has to study the unusual biochemical features of the organism that allow it to survive and even thrive in very acidic conditions.

Unlike mass spectrometry, our requiring requiring ionization of neutral atoms or molecules that sample sample, such as proteins and other mass spectrometers our carbon nanotube mass sensor sensitive enough at higher is allowed is allowed suitable for measuring large. Biomolecules such as DNA. Finally, our device is small enough so that, in the course of time, on a chip. .

A DC voltage source, such as from a battery or a solar cell array, is applied to the electrodes. Is applying a DC bias voltage generates a negative electric charge on the free tip of the nanotube. An additional radio frequency wave tickle the nanotubes, leading to a characteristic bending excited resonant frequency.. Noise improves the sensitivity. We have reached the sub – one-atom resolution at room temperature! . The new NEMS mass sensor consists of a single-wall carbon nanotubes to provide the double-walled, uniform electrical properties and increased rigidity A tip of the carbon nanotube free connected and the other end anchored to an electrode in close proximity to a counter electrode.
