Their method is so sensitive that it has even located the position of hydrogen atoms for the first time, which is crucial in accessing the morphology of the molecules or the size of cavities in porous materials. This research, published on January 13, 2017, has made the front page of the journal Science.]]> <![CDATA[Baboons produce vocalizations comparable to vowels]]> Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2873.htm PLOS ONE on January 11, 2017, the data confirm that baboons are capable of producing at least five vocalizations with the properties of vowels, in spite of their high larynx, and that they are capable of combining them when they communicate with their partners. The vocalizations of baboons thus point to a system of speech among non-human primates.]]> <![CDATA[Fast fine art : 19th century painting tricks revealed]]> Mon, 09 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2871.htm 1 researchers have finally learned the chemical secrets behind these mixtures. Lead—in its acetate form—is essential for the formation of the gels. The team's findings are published in the 9 January 2017 issue of Angewandte Chemie International Edition.]]> <![CDATA[Nanohyperthermia softens tumors to improve treatment]]> Mon, 02 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0100 http://www2.cnrs.fr/en/2869.htm nanohyperthermia, makes the tumors more vulnerable to therapeutic agents. First, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are directly injected into the tumors. Then, laser irradiation activates the nanotubes, while the surrounding healthy tissue remains intact. The team's work was published on January 1 in Theranostics.]]> <![CDATA[The October issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Mon, 02 Nov 2015 08:10:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[2014 A year at the CNRS]]> Fri, 23 Oct 2015 12:00:00 +0200 http://www.cnrs.fr/en/science-news/institutional-publi.htm#activityReport <![CDATA[The CNRS, a key player in the COP 21 From climate to global change: the CNRS at the forefront]]> Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:00:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1ZeZZH9 <![CDATA[Film: A Nero's folly]]> Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:00:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1zn6PRh <![CDATA[The April issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:45:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[Close-up: A Good Pitch]]> Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:44:00 +0200 http://bit.ly/1DqpBU1 <![CDATA[Film: Gérard Berry, A Programming Pioneer]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 16:55:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1BkbhLc <![CDATA[The January issue of CNRS International Magazine is now available]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 08:35:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1k4pjbS <![CDATA[Snapshot: Scanning a Temple]]> Tue, 27 Jan 2015 08:34:00 +0100 http://bit.ly/1z4SXXS
