Top experts review the latest patents they read and the latest papers
and lectures they attended at conferences; they then make a selection
of the most promising technologies and summarize in a few lines what

Technical Paper -
We have synthesized novel Mussel-mimetic adhesive resin from biomass monomers. Because the adhesive resin contains catechol groups at its chain ends, which is similar to the chemical structure of 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-L-alanine, produced by Mussel, it demonstrates strong adhesive characteristics onto organic and/or inorganic surfaces beyond those of the conventional instant superglue. The origin of...
