Researchers combine disciplines, computational programs to determine atomic structure


A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Indiana University combined two techniques to determine the structure of cyanostar, a new abiological molecule that captures unwanted negative ions in solutions. When Semin Lee, a chemist and Beckman Institute postdoctoral fellow at ...


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 ...
