Second Liquid State???

Physicist reported in the International Journal of Nanotechnology noted that liquid water has a whole new set of properties when it hits temperatures between 40°C and 60°C. In this range, water can go into a  “crossover” phase or a second liquid state where the surface tension changes and other characteristics change....

Small droplets feel the vibe

Small droplets feel the vibe: A team of researchers have used ultrasonic forces to accurately pattern thousands of microscopic water-based droplets. Each droplet can be designed to perform a biochemical experiment, which could pave the way for highly efficient lab-on-a-chip devices with future applications in drug discovery and clinical diagnostics.



MEMBRANE FREE PROTOCELLS!!!  That is awesome!
