Ionic liquids interesting in extracting molecules from wood


Thanks to their unique properties, ionic liquids are all in the rage as solvents as "green" sustainable chemical processes. Recently, two research teams at Umeå University in Sweden discovered how enzymes can perform their catalytical processes in a switchable ionic liquid. The discovery paves ...


Researchers create technology to produce lighter, long-lasting batteries from silicon


Substantially smaller and longer-lasting batteries for everything from portable electronic devices to electric cars could be come a reality thanks to an innovative technology developed by University of Waterloo researchers. Zhongwei Chen, a chemical engineering professor at Waterloo, and a team ...

Discovery about new battery overturns decades of false assumptions

Abundant potassium than rarer lithium used


New findings at Oregon State University have overturned a scientific dogma that stood for decades, by showing that potassium can work with graphite in a potassium-ion battery - a discovery that could pose a challenge and sustainable alternative to the widely-used lithium-ion battery. Lithium-ion ...


Designed defects in liquid crystals can guide construction of nanomaterials


Imperfections running through liquid crystals can be used as miniscule tubing, channeling molecules into specific positions to form new materials and nanoscale structures, according to engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The discovery could have applications in fields as diverse as ...

Discovery of a highly efficient catalyst eases way to hydrogen economy


Hydrogen is usually produced by separating water with electrical power. And although the water supply is essentially limitless, a major roadblock to a future "hydrogen economy" is the need for platinum or other expensive noble metals in the water-splitting devices.Noble metals resist oxidation ...


Cages offer new direction in sustainable catalyst design


University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have developed a new approach to structuring the catalysts used in essential reactions in the chemical and energy fields. The advance offers a pathway for industries to wean themselves off of platinum, one of the scarcest metals in the earth's crust.In an ...


Global Bioenergies: Completion of the basic engineering phase of the Leuna Demo Plant


Global Bioenergies and The Linde Group today announce the completion of the basic engineering phase of Global Bioenergies' demo plant. In February 2014, Global Bioenergies entrusted the Engineering Division of technology company The Linde Group with the mission to deliver the basic engineering ...


Chemical engineers publish vision for the future


Possible solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges are outlined in a new report published by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).Chemical Engineering Matters focuses on securing sustainable energy supplies, food and nutrition, access to clean water, health and wellbeing, four ...


GlaxoSmithKline wins top prize at IChemE Awards


GlaxoSmithKline clinched the top prize at the IChemE 2012 Awards in recognition of its radical change in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The organisation won the Outstanding Achievement in Chemical Engineering Award alongside project partners GEA, Siemens, Sagentia and the Universities of ...
