Antimatter helps to unveil the secrets of liquid crystals

22-Apr-2016

The chaos typical of liquid molecules, and the ordering characteristics of crystals. There are states of matter connecting such contradictory features: liquid crystals. Thanks to an innovative application of antimatter, it has been demonstrated at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish ...

Exotic quantum effects can govern the chemistry around us

11-Apr-2016

Objects of the quantum world are of a concealed and cold-blooded nature: they usually behave in a quantum manner only when they are significantly cooled and isolated from the environment. Experiments carried out by chemists and physicists from Warsaw have destroyed this simple picture. It turns ...

Superman can start worrying - we've got the formula for (almost) kryptonite!

04-Mar-2016

Theoretical chemists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences have found how to synthesize the first binary compound of krypton and oxygen: a krypton oxide. It turns out that this exotic substance can be produced under extremely high pressure, and its production ...

Is lignin the crude oil of the future?

Maybe so, thanks to the Sun and photocatalysts!

09-Feb-2016

We associate refineries with crude oil and a dense tangle of technical fittings. They may, however, change in the future - if crude oil is replaced by lignin, a product currently treated as industrial waste. The research route leading towards this goal is being paved by new photocatalysts, ...

The strain allows to control the magnetic properties of individual iron atom

02-Feb-2016

The iron Fe2+ atom embedded in a semiconductor exhibits a single non-degenerate ground state of zero magnetic moment. A team of scientists from the University of Warsaw has just shown that by using sufficiently large strain it is possible to tailor the energy spectrum of the iron atom to obtain ...

Photovoltaics? On perovskites produced by mechanochemistry!

18-Jan-2016

Perovskites, substances that perfectly absorb light, are the future of solar energy. The opportunity for their rapid dissemination has just increased thanks to a cheap and environmentally safe method of production of these materials, developed by chemists from Warsaw, Poland. Rather than in ...

Dimensionality transition in a newly created material

27-Nov-2015

Iron oxides occur in nature in many forms, often significantly different from each other in terms of structure and physical properties. However, a new variety of iron oxide, recently created and tested by scientists in Cracow, surprised both physicists and engineers, as it revealed features ...

Chemical microdroplet computers are easier to teach than to design

16-Oct-2015

Scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw in cooperation with the Institute of Physics of the PAS and the University of Jena have developed the concept of a simple chemical computer made of microdroplets capable of searching databases. ...

Plantations of nanorods on carpets of graphene capture the Sun's energy

17-Jul-2015

The Sun can be a better chemist, thanks to zinc oxide nanorod arrays grown on a graphene substrate and "decorated" with dots of cadmium sulphide. In the presence of solar radiation, this combination of zero and one-dimensional semiconductor structures with two-dimensional graphene is a great ...

Solvay launches production of highly dispersible silica in Poland

07-Jul-2015

Solvay is hosting a ceremony to mark the production launch of Highly Dispersible Silica (HDS) at its new state-of-the-art plant in Wloclawek, Poland, to address strong and growing regional demand for energy saving tires. Polish authorities and other dignitaries present at the ceremony welcomed ...
