Drugs that release nitric oxide work only as long as they last in the body. Here, copper-bearing films generate NO from endogenous S-nitrosothiols.

ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering

ZnO–Ag Ethanol Sensors
Zinc oxide nanorods that contain small amounts of metallic silver show promise as sensitive, stable ethanol vapor sensors.
