Key step toward custom-made nanoscale chemical factories

08-Feb-2016

Scientists have for the first time reengineered a building block of a geometric nanocompartment that occurs naturally in bacteria. They introduced a metal binding site to its shell that will allow electrons to be transferred to and from the compartment. This provides an entirely new ...

Scientists guide gold nanoparticles to form 'diamond' superlattices

08-Feb-2016

Using bundled strands of DNA to build Tinkertoy-like tetrahedral cages, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have devised a way to trap and arrange nanoparticles in a way that mimics the crystalline structure of diamond. The achievement of this complex yet ...

Phosphine as a superconductor?

Sure, but the story may be complicated

05-Feb-2016

Phosphine is one of the newest materials to be named a superconductor, a material through which electricity can flow with zero resistance. In 2015, scientists reported that they had liquefied the chemical and squeezed it under high pressure in a diamond vice to achieve superconductivity. Now, a ...

Making fuel from thin air

Carbon dioxide captured from air converted directly to methanol fuel for the first time

04-Feb-2016

For the first time, researchers there have directly converted carbon dioxide from the air into methanol at relatively low temperatures. The work, led by G.K. Surya Prakash and George Olah of the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, is part of a broader effort to stabilize the ...
