The first map of permafrost distribution in the Northern and Southern hemispheres has been developed by researchers from the University of Oslo. The very first global estimate of permafrost temperatures reveals that the coldest ground on the Earth is found in the Transantarctic Mountains.
The Grignard reaction is used to synthesize carbon-carbon bonds, a crucial step for making new molecules for academic and industry uses. Finding efficient and selective methods for this reaction has been the target of the research activity for more than 100 years. Incredibly enough, the way the Grignard reaction works has been unknown – until now.
Few countries are as well supplied with human milk banks as Norway. But in contrast to other countries, Norwegian milk banks do not pasteurize all the donated milk. This requires strict and updated guidelines.
