A repertoire as-yet-undiscovered molecular knots for future physico-chemical applications
Consider a short piece of rope: could you guess which knots are more likely to form if you crumple and shake it? Synthetic chemists have long been working on a molecular version of this problem and, so far, have succeeded at synthesizing half a dozen different knots types using molecular ...
Strategic step to support green technologies and chemistry
Specialty chemicals company LANXESS will open a new applications development and technical services (AD & TS) laboratory for polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) in Latina, Italy. As part of the existing Urethane Systems AD & TS center, the new lab will operate as a standalone facility dedicated to ...
A new class of low-cost and sustainable hybrid materials could possibly displace activated carbon as the preferred choice for reducing wastewater and air pollution. The material is synthesized inexpensively from solid wastes and a naturally abundant polymer -- and can cut down pollutants in air ...
From nanoscale silver to titanium dioxide for air purification, the use of nanomaterials of high commercial relevance proves to have clear benefits as it attracts investments, and raises concerns. 'Nano' sized materials (a nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre) could pose environmental and ...
Scientists predicted the existence of a new form of water in 1999: That existence has just been confirmed
An original state, both solid and liquid at the same time: this is the latest news on a substance -water- so familiar to everyone but which appears to hold always fresh surprises for scientists. Its name is "superionic water"; it doesn't exist on Earth but it could be abundant inside certain ...
Possibility of two coexisting liquid states in sub-zero water
Did you know that water can still remain liquid below zero degrees Celsius? It is called supercooled water and is present in refrigerators. At even smaller temperatures, supercooled water could exist as a cocktail of two distinct liquids. Unfortunately, the presence of ice often prevents us from ...
Trace-back and predictive modelling tools for use during food safety outbreaks and created by scientific teams led by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) will be further rolled out under a new funding partnership agreed between EFSA and BfR. Signed today, the framework ...
Sustainable Alternative Technology for the Manufacturing of Li-ion Battery Materials
Solvay has announced the successful conclusion of the LIFE+ GLEE project, a highly focused sustainability program the aim of which was to replace organic solvents with water in the rechargeable lithium ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturing process. Because cathode materials are usually ...
Italmatch Chemicals, a global specialty chemicals group, acquired 100% of Compass Chemical International, a North American independent chemical company active in the production and marketing of phosphonates and additives for water treatment and for the oil & gas market. Thanks to this ...
Platinum is one of the costly metals used as catalysts in new technologies employed for industrial chemical processes, renewable energy sources, pollution control and many other purposes. In particular, it is used for fuel cells, devices that turn chemical energy directly into electrical energy, ...
