A Rack for Ammonia

Metal-organic framework as a robust material for the uptake and storage of ammonia at densities that come close to that of the liquefied gas

09-Oct-2018

Handling, storing, and shipping of ammonia requires costly equipment and special precautions because of its inherent corrosiveness and toxicity. Scientists in Manchester, UK, have found that a metal–organic framework, MFM-300(Al), a porous solid, not only effectively filters harmful nitrogen ...

Garlic ingredient from the lab bench

Total synthesis of ajoene, a biologically active component in oil extracts of garlic

24-Aug-2018

Fresh garlic extracts contain a variety of healthy organosulfur compounds, among which ajoene forms a major oil-extractable ingredient. Now, chemists in the United Kingdom have synthesized ajoene from readily available components for the first time. The results show that ajoene is accessible on a ...

Taming defects in nanoporous materials to put them to a good use

Fundamental aspects of defective materials that can be employed to capture CO2

10-Aug-2018

The word "defect" universally evokes some negative, undesirable feature, but researchers at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University have a different opinion: in the realm of nanoporous materials, defects can be put to a good use, if one knows how to tame them. Metal ...
