Artificial enzymes convert solar energy into hydrogen gas

08-Oct-2018

In a new scientific article, researchers at Uppsala University describe how, using a completely new method, they have synthesised an artificial enzyme that functions in the metabolism of living cells. These enzymes can utilize the cell's own energy, and thereby enable hydrogen gas to be produced ...

World speed record for polymer simulations shattered by over a hundred-fold

18-Sep-2018

From a humble plastic bag to ultra-light airplane wings - polymers are everywhere. These molecules are long chains of atoms that are chemically joined to play many roles that we all love (organic photovoltaics) and hate (indestructible plastic pollution). Polymers are useful in liquid form as ...

Magnetic order in a two-dimensional molecular chessboard

24-May-2017

Achieving magnetic order in low-dimensional systems consisting of only one or two dimensions has been a research goal for some time. In a new study Uppsala researchers show that magnetic order can be created in a two-dimensional chessboard lattice consisting of organometallic molecules that are ...

Ultrafast uncoupled magnetism in atoms

A new step towards computers of the future

14-Sep-2015

Future computers will require a magnetic material which can be manipulated ultra-rapidly by breaking the strong magnetic coupling. A study in which Swedish and German scientists demonstrate that even the strongest magnetic coupling may be broken within picoseconds. This will open up an exciting ...

Nature's chemical diversity reflected in Swedish lakes

06-May-2014

It's not only the biology of lakes that varies with the climate and other environmental factors, it's also their chemistry. More knowledge about this is needed to understand the ecology of lakes and their role in the carbon cycle and the climate. Today an international research group led by ...

Graphene nanoscrolls are formed by decoration of magnetic nanoparticles

21-Aug-2013

Researchers at Umeå University, together with researchers at Uppsala University and Stockholm University, show in a new study how nitrogen doped graphene can be rolled into perfect Archimedean nano scrolls by adhering magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of the graphene sheets. The ...

Thermally Stable Solar Cell Materials

A new approach can help scientists predict the thermal stability of potential absorber materials for solar cells

08-May-2012

European researchers have developed a simple thermodynamic method to predict whether a substance can resist the high temperatures normally involved in the production of thin films for photovoltaic devices. The new approach could help scientists in their search for better energy materials. ...
