  • Learning from the mussel, scientists create a biologically active titanium surface

    Titanium is used medically in applications such as artificial joints and dental implants. While it is strong and is not harmful to tissues, the metal lacks some of the beneficial biological properties of natural tissues such as bones and natural teeth. Now, based on insights from mussels--which are more

  • Soluble Elements from a New Corner of the Periodic Table

    The world of chemistry has a new first: a research group at the University of Würzburg has presented the first soluble and stable molecules containing an s-block atom in its elemental state. Normally these elements are highly reactive. It is one of the more memorable experiments of high school chem more

  • Tiny microbots that can clean up water

    Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead from industrial wastewater from a level of 1000 parts-per-billion to down to below 50 parts-per-billion in just an hour. The lead can lat-er b more

Alkali metal roulette – reacting sodium and potassium with acid

Students generally make three requests after seeing the reaction of alkali metals with water: ‘Put in a bigger piece!’, ‘Can we see what happens with caesium?’ and ‘What happens if you do it in acid?’. Safety prohibits the use of bigger pieces, while cost and practical considerations prohibit th ... more

Group 2 Elements

The second of a series of infographics on the groups of the periodic table, here some general properties of the group 2 elements are examined. As stated previously, these are primarily aimed at secondary school students, hence the relative simplicity and generality of the information presented. more

Group 1 Elements

I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some informatio more

The Chemistry of Fireworks

The colours in fireworks stem from a wide variety of metal compounds – particularly metal salts. ‘Salt’ as a word conjures up images of the normal table salt you probably use every day; whilst this is one type of salt (sodium chloride), in chemistry ‘salt’ refers to any compound that contains metal more

Thermal Analysis of Thermosets

Thermosets are used for components that must be rigid, insoluble and of high mechanical strength and temperature stability. Production and processing are cheaper compared with metals. The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such materials. Th

Metal

Metal . In chemistry, a metal (Greek : Metallon) is an element that readily loses electrons to form positive ion s (cations) and has metallic bond s between metal atoms. Metals form ionic bonds with non-metals. They are sometimes described ... more
