Biogenic Iron-Rich Filaments in the Quartz Veins in the Uppermost Ediacaran Qigebulake Formation, Aksu Area, Northwestern Tarim Basin, China: Implications for Iron Oxidizers in Subseafloor Hydrothermal Systems Authors:Zhou et alAbstract:Fe-(oxyhydr)oxide-encrusted...Show More Summary
Those bacteria that require iron walk a tightrope. Iron is essential for their growth, but too much iron can damage DNA and enzymes through oxidation. Therefore, bacteria have machinery to maintain their intracellular iron within a range that is healthy for them, scientists report.
You're up in the mountains, the snow is blindingly white, and the sun is blazing down from the sky: ideal skiing conditions -- but any skiers carrying the herpes virus might also have to reckon with the onset of cold sores after their day out. Show More Summary
Toxic sludge paint, made from the iron oxide pigments found in polluted streams, could fund its own large scale clean-up operation.
Precipitation of iron silicate nanoparticles in early Precambrian oceans marks Earth's first iron ageAuthors:Rasmussen et alAbstract:The early ocean was characterized by anoxic, iron-rich (ferruginous) conditions before the rise of atmospheric oxygen ?2.45 b.y. Show More Summary
If you didn't think anything beautiful could come from toxic waste, well, think again. Ohio University art professor John Sabraw and civil engineer Guy Riefler have joined forces and devised a method for extracting iron oxide metals from industrial waste. The extracts can then be turned into vibrant pigments and used to create stunning works of art. Read more...

Lavender Hand-painted Ceramic Bead I thought I would showcase this bead that I currently have available at my Etsy store. I drew that daisy, scanned the drawing, saved it as a 300dpi jpg photo, and opened up my word processing program. Show More Summary
The Fountain Paint Pots in Yellowstone National Park are named for the colorful muds produced by the oxidizing iron in the mud, the natural result of hot springs. In November 2014, a light dusting of snow both revealed the topography of the area and made the steam rising from the ground clear and eerie. Read more...
Iron oxides, divalent cations, silica, and the early earth phosphorus crisisAuthors:Jones et alAbstract:As a nutrient required for growth, phosphorus regulates the activity of life in the oceans. Iron oxides sorb phosphorus from seawater,...Show More Summary
Scientists have been studying the behavior of iron oxide surfaces. The atomic structure of iron oxide, which had been assumed to be well-established, turned out to be wrong. The behavior of iron oxide is governed by missing iron atoms in the atomic layer directly below the surface. This is a big surprise with potential applications in chemical catalysis, electronics or medicine.
Applying a thin film of metallic oxide significantly boosts the performance of solar panel cells. Researchers have developed a new class of materials comprising elements such as bismuth, iron, chromium, and oxygen. These 'multiferroic' materials absorb solar radiation and possess unique electrical and magnetic properties.

MagForce injects iron oxide nanoparticles into a patient and then vibrates them with a magnetic field to generate heat that kills cancer cells. It sounds like science fiction but it’s real. That’s why Peter Thiel’s late-stage investment firm Mithril just led a $15 million investment into MagForce’s new American subsidary that values it at $65 million. Founded in 1997… Read More
