Molecular motion of propane in silica pores: computer simulations compared with neutron scattering experiments

Understanding how fluids, and notably hydrocarbon gases, seep through porous rocks in the terrestrial environment is essential to understand the fundamental processes involved and also to aid better recovery of these gases from the earth. It is

Ultrasound can help small particles penetrate into biofilms using a new oscillatory diffusion mechanism

Biofilms form when microorganisms, such as bacteria or algae, attach to a surface and surround themselves with a matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (or EPS). Biofilms are ubiquitous in nature and in a vast array of industrial
