The smell of old books could help preserve them  

Old books give off a complex melange of odors, ranging from pleasant (almonds, caramel and chocolate) to nasty (formaldehyde, old clothes and trash). Detecting early signs of paper degradation could help guide preservation efforts, but most techniques destroy the very paper historians want to save. Now, researchers have developed an electronic nose that can non-destructively sniff out odors emitted by books of different paper compositions, conditions and ages.

Perovskite solar cells: Possible aspects of high efficiency uncovered  

A team has demonstrated that hybrid halide perovskites crystallize without an inversion center. Interactions between the organic molecules and adjacent iodine atoms can lead to the formation of ferroelectric domains, which, indirectly, can result in higher solar-cell efficiencies. The formation of these ferroelectric domains cannot occur in purely inorganic perovskites.

This could indicate that the influence of several stars in a system disrupts the process of planet formation.
