Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) has more than doubled capacity for emulsion-based organic peroxides at its site in Los Reyes, Mexico to meet increased customer demand in the North American polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market. The company introduced emulsion-based peroxides to North ...
The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks directly, but rather by their mutual interactions, which are governed by their outer electron shells. Many chemical processes are based on the ...
Combining conductive foam with other materials for capable new composites
Laser-induced graphene (LIG), a flaky foam of the atom-thick carbon, has many interesting properties on its own but gains new powers as part of a composite. The labs of Rice University chemist James Tour and Christopher Arnusch, a professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, ...
Evonik More Than Doubles Venture Capital to Accelerate Innovation
Evonik has launched its second venture capital fund with a volume of €150 million, more than doubling the amount under management to €250 million. The new fund will help secure access to disruptive technologies and innovative business models as well as supporting Evonik’s digital transformation ...
Hamburg scientists’ theory of polaritonically amplified energy transfer over long distances between molecules paves the way for a new level of chemical engineering and ‘spooky chemistry’. Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter ...
Coating could reduce the flammability of polyurethane foam
Texas A&M University researchers are developing a new kind of flame-retardant coating using renewable, nontoxic materials readily found in nature, which could provide even more effective fire protection for several widely used materials. Dr. Jaime Grunlan, the Linda & Ralph Schmidt '68 Professor ...
Effort to build bottom-up chiral polymers with unique functions
As below, so above. That seems to be an operating principle for molecules that start with a basic chirality - or "handed-ness" -- and pass it on as they combine into larger structures. An international team that included Rice University materials scientist Edwin Thomas pried a new, fundamental ...
Adding olefin enables efficient solvent-free cross-coupling reactions, leading to environmentally friendly syntheses of a wide range of organic materials. A cross coupling reaction is typically performed in an organic solvent and leads to the production of a large amount of solvent waste, which ...
Michigan State University researchers have measured for the first time the nuclei of three protein-rich calcium isotopes. One of the most fundamental properties of the nucleus is its size. The nuclear radius generally increases with the number of proton and neutron constituents. However, when ...
Gas-trapping framework married to light-powered nanocatalysts
When Rice University chemist and engineer Hossein Robatjazi set out to marry a molecular sieve called MOF to a plasmonic aluminum nanoparticle two years ago, he never imagined the key would be the same process nature uses to petrify wood. In a new paper Robatjazi and co-authors with Rice's ...
