The nanoparticles could improve the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy. And when he does, as this Buzzfeed Hope you weren't too attached to your inner ears! Oxygen has had extraordinary effects on life. Although humans must breathe oxygen to stay alive, oxygen is a risky substance inside the body because it can make molecules overly reactive. Nick Lane's book, Oxygen The Molecule that made the World, is a surprising volume. Second, I read to be amazed and gain an appreciation for the wider world. [BuzzFeed Sure, but the story is about all oxygen molecules in everything on Earth disappearing, including oxygen bound in chemical compounds. It's integral to life on this planet. Prevention of oxidative stress. Or literally anything made of concrete. The Molecule That Made Our World Oxygen – we all need it, we can't live without it. Under the right conditions, oxygen, light and photosensitiser molecules combine to generate a short-lived poisonous oxygen species called singlet oxygen. This is the basis of photodynamic therapy, a treatment for some cancers. Three hundred million years ago, in Carboniferous times, dragonflies grew as big as seagulls, with wingspans of nearly a metre. Scientists in Canada have made nanoparticles that release singlet oxygen when a laser beam is shone on them. Astronomers are finding more and more of life's key ingredients in deep space, from amino acids to a huge water reservoir, and now molecular oxygen. Oxygen Molecules in the Orion Nebula Astronomers have at last identified the distinct signatures of oxygen molecules in space, using observations made with the Herschel Space Observatory.

In Oxygen, Nick Lane takes the reader on an enthralling journey as he unravels the unexpected ways in which oxygen spurred the evolution of life and death. Sure, our supervillains are more of the geopolitical type, but it's inevitable that some day a mad scientist will come along with an oxygen-stealing ray. The result is a In both instances, the heat from the laser or photoflash literally caused mini-explosions throughout the paper, as the oxygen atoms in graphene oxide were violently expelled from the structure. Engineering researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute made a sheet of paper from the world's thinnest material, graphene, and then zapped the paper with a laser or camera flash to blemish it with countless cracks, pores, and other imperfections.
