  • New material for splitting water

    Solar energy is clean and abundant. But when the sun isn't shining, you must store the energy in batteries or through a process called photocatalysis -- in which solar energy is used to make fuels. In photocatalytic water splitting, sunlight separates water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen and more

  • Technology clears way for ethanol-derived jet fuel

    ASTM International recently revised ASTM D7566 Annex A5 -- the Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons -- to add ethanol as an approved feedstock for producing alcohol-to-jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK). The revision of ASTM D7566 Annex A5 cle more

  • Magic in metal could help put excess carbon dioxide to good use

    The chunk of metal sitting on a table in Joel Rosenthal's office at the University of Delaware looks like it should belong in a wizard's pocket. Shiny silver with shocks of pink and splashes of gold, it's called bismuth, and it's currently used to make products ranging from shotgun pellets to cosmet more

Hypergolic Fuels – The Chemistry of a Rocket Launch

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

  • 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

  • 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

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

Ionic Liquids

Ionic liquids have been known for over a century, but they spent much of that time in relative scientific obscurity. Yet, beginning around 1998 interest in these unorthodox salts exploded, and in the intervening period some 85,000 papers have been published on the topic – a truly remarkable, near-un

EFC-Workshop 2018: High Temperature Corrosion under Complex Conditions, Deposits and Salts: Towards Greener Energy

The current motivation to reduce CO2-emmissions has driven the worldwide development of new technologies in energy conversion and transportation. Examples for these technologies include oxy-fuel combustion for subsequent CO2-capture, using supercritical CO2 as a heat-transfer medium, waste-incinerat
