For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsOver the past decade research groups around the globe have created a variety of tiny particles that move on their own powering themselves forward Eventually researchers hope to use such particles to deliver drugs inside the body and whisk up chemical spills Now two teams of researchers have given these microparticles a couple of new skills One enables them to swim upstream mimicking the way certain bacterial pathogens find their targets; the other churns out hydrogen gas for fuel cells at an unprecedented rate Self-powered microparticles—only a millionth of a meter or so across—use different chemicals in solution as fuel breaking them down to propel themselves forward In 2004 for example researchers designed nanosized particles that when placed in solution containing hydrogen peroxide generate hydroxide ions that create a small electric field around the particles; because the particles themselves are charged they respond to that field and are pulled through the solution Now researchers have taken that work a step further A team led by researchers at New York University reports today in Science Advances that it has made hydrogen peroxide–propelled microparticles that under the right conditions swim upstream against fluid flowing through a small capillary Parasitic bacteria use much the same method to push against the fluid pressure in the urinary tract to colonize the bladder In this case the synthetic particles are micrometer-sized white plastic spheres that contain a small round patch of hematite or iron oxide In solution the hematite splits oxygen away from hydrogen This reaction sets up chemical and local electric gradients causing the polymer beads to surf forward on those flows in the direction of their hematite protrusions But it does so only in the presence of blue light Without the light the particles just float about When the light is switched on however the hematite absorbs enough extra energy to carry out its chemical reaction and move The researchers also found that when they push their solution through a pipette the particles swim against the current “This is very exciting” says Tom Mallouk a chemist and micromotor expert at Pennsylvania State University University Park who was not involved with the work He notes that researchers have produced many different types of micromotors that move through chemical gradients—a process known as chemotaxis—but that this is the first one that responds to fluid flow or rheotaxis “It’s a new method of control that is broadly applicable to micromotors” Mallouk says He adds that it might be possible to harness the effect to improve drug delivery inside tumors which typically exert pressure against compounds trying to enter In the second study a team led by nanotechnologist Joseph Wang of the University of California San Diego used microparticle motors to explore a very different application In this case their goal was to supply hydrogen to a fuel cell that is used to convert chemical energy to electricity that can be harnessed to power a car or home In these cells hydrogen gas (H2) is broken down at one electrode into positively charged hydrogen ions and electrons The stream of electrons produces electricity which is sent through a wire for powering devices The current then returns to a second electrode where the electrons meet up with the positively charged hydrogen ions and oxygen from the air to generate water But although hydrogen fuel cells are highly efficient at converting the gases to electricity the gases themselves take up a large volume That makes it difficult to store enough of them near the fuel cell to provide enough electricity to power a car over a long distance for example One option is to use catalysts to react with energy-dense liquid fuels such as sodium borohydride to generate large amounts of hydrogen that can then be fed into a fuel cell Such catalysts have been made using tiny microparticles But there’s a catch: The catalytic particles produce hydrogen by forming bubbles where they come in contact with the sodium borohydride solution Those bubbles it turns out tend to cling to the particles and prevent the catalyst from continuing its work dramatically slowing the reaction So for their study Wang and his colleagues formed two-part “Janus” particles named after the two-faced Roman god One half of the particle was made of titanium which doesn’t react with sodium borohydride The other half was platinum which reacts vigorously ripping off H2 molecules Because the particles eject H2 only from the platinum side they shoot through the solution and away from the H2 bubbles as they form As a result the platinum surface is continually exposed to sodium borohydride and able to convert it to H2 In a recent article published online before print in Angewandte Chemie International Edition Wang and his colleagues reported that their particles increased the hydrogen generation some 20-fold over previous efforts Mallouk who wasn’t involved with this research either says the work marks a clever proof of concept for increasing the rate of H2 production and could give hydrogen fuel cell cars a big boost More broadly he says it shows how making catalysts mobile might speed up many different types of reactions “That could be a powerful and useful concept”a Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) official confirmed that no staff from Pune had visited Mantralaya on Thursdays office where he was attending a meeting Following

ceremony before they moved in Top News M Rajeswari had been searching for a suitable partner for Damodar Rao for nearly two years before she found the perfect match The retired school teacher had started Thodu Needa an agency to help single or widowed elderly men and women find a companion for themselves and Rao 64 a retired bank manager was one of her clients As she met him again to discuss what he was looking for in a companion the widower explained to her that he wanted an independent and enterprising partner someone who would share his interest in education Somewhere during the course of the conversation Rao looked up and they both knew in that instant that they were thinking of the same thing Rajeswari fit the description to perfection “Little had I known when I started this that I would end up finding a companion for myself” says the now-66-year-old Hyderabad resident Since Thodu Needa began operations in December 2010 Rajeswari has helped facilitate matches for nearly 200 couples over the age of 50 with nearly 95 per cent of them including Rao and Rajeswari opting for live-in relationships rather than formal weddings In a 2012 report released jointly by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Help Age International it is estimated that by 2050 India and China will have about 80 per cent of the world’s elderly population Currently about 12 per cent of India’s population is over 60 Significant improvements in the quality of healthcare has also meant that the lifespan of an average individual has increased Increasingly after retirement and the loss of a spouse a large number of elderly men and women are now finding themselves with too much time on hand and not many people to turn to The Deos with their family members Rajeswari is one such instance Married at the age of 13 to a 21-year-old man Rajeswari separated from her husband after 17 years of marriage She returned to her parents’ house with three children and resumed her education She went on to do a post-graduation in Telugu literature and joined a zilla parishad school afterwards It was after her retirement when she went to live with her eldest son in New Delhi that she felt the first pangs of loneliness “I started to think of people like me who are single and feel a need for companionship at this stage of life” she says She returned to Hyderabad her comfort zone and started Thodu Needa “I had hired a hall but had no money to pay for it I charged a fee of Rs 300 per person to cover the rent One of the local newspapers carried a small report of the upcoming meet and on that day to my surprise about 70 people turned up from all over the state Some had travelled nearly 300 km to attend the event” she says Share This Article Related Article There were about 25 women in that first group many of them embarrassed and uncomfortable at the idea of expressing a need for a companion at their age “I had to explain to them that having a companion is not just about sex but about emotional bonding too” she says At that meeting where attendees ranged from labourers to doctors many found companions of their choice “To my great surprise about 65 per cent decided to stay together rather than get married” says Rajeswari Over the years that rank has only swelled Rao Rajeswari’s partner says this second innings in no different from a new beginning “Life is all about adjustments but this is more of a voluntary kind You do it because you feel that the companionship is worth it” he says From food preferences to sleeping habits to not encroaching on each other’s privacy each couple has to come to terms with the new rules of engagement Of course physical attraction has its role to play but most hold mental compatibility and empathy integral to second attempts “At this age we realise that the partner has had a history just like us and needs to divide his time and attention between this and his children So one has to respect those limitations” says Rajeswari Rao and Rajeswari say at their age living together is also better as there are no legal or property issues at stake Even though some women believe in sharing the financial burden of their joint life in most instances it still rests on the man Many elderly men who have chosen a live-in relationship say that they also try to work out an informal understanding with their families for a bequeath to the partner after their death For the families too the absence of any legal obligation makes it easier to accept the new relationship “Many children welcome the decision; some however feel that the parents should live separately and only meet or go out together on vacations” she says Krishan Iyer (name changed) is one of those whose family would rather have him staying with them than with his live-in partner Laxmi The 64-year-old government servant met 54-year-old Laxmi (name changed) through Thodu Needa a few years ago Laxmi filled the emotional vacuum created after his wife’s death in 2010 and in 2013 shifted to Hyderabad where he stays But the two still live separately “I gave her a house I owned and made sure she is comfortable and has economic freedom but I stay at my son’s house with him and his wife Every day for the past two years I go to her place and stay with her till evening But I have not moved in with her as my son wants me to stay with him She on the other hand is getting more and more insistent that I should now stay with her permanently It’s a reasonable request but I need to make my son agree I want to leave his home amicably” says Iyer who has three children from his previous marriage Sixty-seven-year-old Satyanarayan Kapoor a retired HMT employee did not much care about social sanctions so long as his children were amenable to his decision to live together with Indira a widow whom he met in 2013 When his wife passed away in 2009 and his two daughters and a son got married subsequently Kapoor found himself at a loose end He had also retired by then and the days stretched on endlessly Indira filled that void and the two decided to move in after a simple garland exchange ceremony in the presence of both the families — Kapoor’s three children and Indira’s son and daughter-in-law “What is the use of remarriage when all that we are looking for is companionship” asks Kapoor Meena Lambe 55 too felt the same way when after 27 years of living as a widow she met Arun Deo 66 a retired banker and a widower at a senior citizen meet in Pune After a series of meetings when the two decided to be together Deo was all for marriage but Lambe wanted to live together They eventually married — “I would be okay on my own six days a week but on the seventh day the loneliness would get the better of me” she says — but given a choice she would still choose a live-in relationship over marriage “I feared a curb on my independence My children were three and seven years old when I was widowed — I brought them up all alone and it made me
