New method enlists electricity for easier, cheaper, greener chemistry


Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found a new and better way to achieve a chemical reaction that is used widely in the pharmaceutical as well as flavor and fragrance industries. Traditional methods of "allylic oxidation" typically employ toxic and/or expensive reagents such ...


Pfizer, GSK, and Siemens form R&D Consortium with A*STAR’s Institute of Chemical & Engineering Sciences

New programme aims to help companies increase productivity with technology solutions for pharmaceutical and chemical sectors


Pfizer Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd, Glaxo Wellcome Manufacturing Pte. Ltd. and Siemens Pte. Ltd, have signed on as founding members of a new A*STAR R&D Consortium Programme - Innovative Processing of Specialties and Pharmaceuticals (iPSP). Launched by A*STAR’s Institute of Chemical and Engineering ...


USDA scientists use commercial enzyme to improve grain ethanol production


A commercial enzyme could reduce overall costs linked with producing ethanol from grain, and also reduce associated emissions of greenhouse gases, according to a study by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists and colleagues.The researchers found that the enzyme helps extract water from ...


Novel bio-based polymer: Young Academics Award for Scientist of TU Braunschweig


Stefanie Kind, PhD student at the Institute of Biochemical Engineering of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, was awarded with the prestigious “Young Metabolic Engineer Award” During the Metabolic Engineering Conference in Jeju, South Korea, an international jury selected five most excellent ...


Greener horizons: Plastics may grow on trees


Money may not grow on trees, but gasoline, computers, and tennis shoes just might thanks to new biotech advances that could allow manufacturers to produce fuel, plastics, and other chemicals from plants instead of petroleum. That's the topic of an article in the current issue of Chemical & ...


Louisiana Tech researchers using nanotechnology in biofuel process to save money, environment


Dr. James Palmer, associate professor of chemical engineering at Louisiana Tech University, is collaborating with fellow professors Dr. Yuri Lvov, Dr. Dale Snow, and Dr. Hisham Hegab to capitalize on the environmental and financial benefits of "biofuels" by using nanotechnology to further improve ...


Researchers enlist DNA to bring carbon nanotubes’ promise closer to reality

Tailored sequences of DNA lead to breakthrough in the campaign to sort and separate CNTs


A team of researchers from DuPont and Lehigh University has reported a breakthrough in the quest to produce carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that are suitable for use in electronics, medicine and other applications. In an article published in the July 9 issue of Nature, the group says it has developed a ...


ACHEMA 2009 reveals worldwide confidence for the future of chemistry and chemical engineering


With stable visitor and exhibitor figures and unprecedented internationality, ACHEMA 2009, the world chemical engineering summit, demonstrates a confident focus on the future. By the time the doors closed after five days of the 29th ACHEMA, over 173,000 visitors from all over the world had ...


Scientists create new enzymes for biofuel production


Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and DNA2.0 have taken an important step toward the development of a cost-efficient process to extract sugars from cellulose - the world's most abundant organic material and cheapest form of solar-energy storage. Plant sugars are ...


Scientists Create a New Way to Study T Cell Signaling


An experiment that began as a "fantasy pipe dream" just three years ago is now a reality. Researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley, combining nanotechnology with biochemistry, have created unique synthetic membranes ...
