Progress requires a profound understanding of the mechanism of non-colligative freezing point depression at the molecular level and allows for efficient strategies for the design and preparation of powerful macromolecular antifreezes.
I propose to unravel how antifreeze proteins work and to build upon these insights to explore effective routes towards ice-binding polymers aiming to make sensitive soft materials freeze-resistant.
The new antifreezes are non-toxic and simple to make, so scaling up production should be straightforward.
Inspired by nature, which has a head start on humans when it comes to creating antifreeze, a team at the University of Ottawa has created a new molecule that prevents the formation of a special kind of ice--clathrate hydrates.
Weeks & McIntyre (1997) found no significant difference in captures of arthropods in pitfall traps where ethylene glycol or propylene glycol based antifreezes were the preservative liquid.
Antifreeze is often used as the capture liquid in insect traps for its preservative and evaporative attributes.
The next step, says Storey: to determine how to use biological antifreezes on human organs in order to freeze and thaw them without destroying their delicate cells.
Cheng, a biologist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, calls the report "a gallant attempt" at synthesizing antifreezes.
These are some of the most active antifreezes we have encountered so far," says Choy L.
