  • Global Bioenergies reaches 87% of yield target in Isobutene process

    Global Bioenergies announces that a new milestone has been met in the development of its Isobutene process. The company announces a yield exceeding 87% of the final target during the complete production phase, at laboratory scale. The productivity is also progressing quickly. Yield and productivity more

  • This bacterium gets paid in gold

    A bacterium named Moorella thermoacetica won't work for free. But UC Berkeley researchers have figured out it has an appetite for gold. And in exchange for this special treat, the bacterium has revealed a more efficient path to producing solar fuels through artificial photosynthesis. M. thermoacetic more

  • Transforming carbon dioxide

    A team of researchers at the University of Delaware's Center for Catalytic Science and Technology (CCST) has discovered a novel two-step process to increase the efficiency of carbon dioxide (CO2) electrolysis, a chemical reaction driven by electrical currents that can aid in the production of valuab more

Chemist Andrea Sella combines dimethylhydrazine with dinitrogen tetroxide to show how hypergolic mixtures fire rockets into space. more

Hypergolic Fuels

Chemist Andrea Sella combines dimethylhydrazine with dinotrogen tetroxide to show how hypergolic mixtures fire rockets into space. There are a few ways to use chemistry to power a rocket, but all involved an oxider and a fuel. And with no oxygen in space, what’s the best solution? Professor Andr ... more

Determine C,H,N, and S Fast and Reliable – in Every Matrix

The analysis of CHN and S is a standard technique for caloric determination and environmental compatibility of fossil fuels such as coal, coke and peat as well as for regenerating raw materials such as biomass or combustible garbage. These elements are determined with highest precision and accuracy more

  • Glycerol in biodiesel and biodiesel blends

    The presented ion chromatographic method is applicable to all biodiesel types and blends. Before chromatographic separation, free glycerol and bound glycerol are isolated by a straightforward extraction and saponification-extraction technique. Pulsed more

  • Saccharidic tracers in atmospheric aerosols

    Atmosperic aerosols have a strong impact on the climate. Within the organic aerosol fraction, anhydrosugars and sugar alcohols are valuable tracers for biomass burning and biogenic sources. They are best determined by ion chromatography coupled to pu more

  • 35 years' experience in "black gold"

    There is a paradoxical consequence of the financial crisis: To produce bitumen is more attractive than ever. In the last six months prices for crude oil and, in particular, the consumption of heavy, sulfur-containing marine Diesel fuel (bunker oils) more

The Chemistry of Petrol & The Tetraethyl Lead Story

18th May marks the date of birth of Thomas Midgley, who made significant contributions to something many of us make use of on a regular basis: petrol. Midgley was the research assistant to Charles Kettering, and the duo were responsible for the addition of the compound tetraethyl lead to petrol, an more

Hydrogen Peroxide

It’s been a while since the last update to the Everyday Chemicals series – this latest graphic looks at hydrogen peroxide. Everyone’s familiar with the term ‘peroxide blonde’, stemming from the use of hydrogen peroxide in hair dyes, but this accounts for just one of the compound’s many uses; it’s al more

In-line PSA streamlines fuel filter testing (ISO16332)

Large amounts of testing is being performed to optimise the efficiency of oil / water separators in diesel engines. The filters remove any solid components (rust, paint chips) that may cause wear on the engine as well as undissolved water (that will be present in the diesel). Large water droplets ar
