Royal Society of Chemistry comment on the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry


The 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel “for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems.” Professor Dominic Tildesley, President-Elect of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and a world-leading expert in large-scale ...


Two in one solution for low cost polymer LEDs and solar cells


Considerable improvement in device performance of polymer-based optoelectronic devices is reported by researchers from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), South Korea. The new plasmonic material, can be applied to both polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) and polymer ...


Sound waves precisely position nanowires


The smaller components become, the more difficult it is to create patterns in an economical and reproducible way, according to an interdisciplinary team of Penn State researchers who, using sound waves, can place nanowires in repeatable patterns for potential use in a variety of sensors, ...

Sometimes less is more

RUB researchers unmask Janus-faced nature of mechanical forces with the Jülich supercomputer


The harder you pull, the quicker it goes. At least, that used to be the rule in mechanochemistry, a method that researchers apply to set chemical reactions in motion by means of mechanical forces. However, as chemists led by Professor Dominik Marx, Chair of Theoretical Chemistry at the ...


Purifying dairy wastewater – at the same time producing electricity


In an EU-funded project the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart is developing, together with industrial and scientific partners, a modular system to purify dairy wastewater electrochemically. Using an integrated fuel cell, the generated hydrogen ...


Moving liquid metal marbles


Researchers in Australia have found a new method to induce the controlled movement of liquid metal droplets in aqueous environments, by coating them in nanoparticles to form ‘liquid metal marbles.’ Research shows that coating droplets of liquid metal galinstan with WO3 nanoparticles increases the ...


Inorganic materials display massive and instantaneous swelling and shrinkage


The first observation of massive swelling and shrinkage of inorganic layered materials like a biological cell provides insights into the production of two-dimensional crystals. Two-dimensional (2D) crystals have unique properties that may be useful for a range of applications. Consequently there ...

Low-carbon hybrid energy systems -- China's future energy solutions


A low-carbon solution to high-carbon energy resources such as coal is proposed by their high efficient integration with either nuclear or renewable energy, which may figure out the strategic solution to China's future energy development. Coal dominated energy resource and consumption structure in ...


Bonn physicists create a 'super-photon'

Completely new source of light for many applications


Physicists from the University of Bonn have developed a completely new source of light, a so-called Bose-Einstein condensate consisting of photons. Until recently, expert had thought this impossible. This method may potentially be suitable for designing novel light sources resembling lasers that ...


Study uncovers redox response properties of largest-ever polymeric o-phenylenes


New findings by researchers at RIKEN and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) have shed light on the remarkable electrochemical response properties of an elusive class of molecular helix structures, charting a new path in the design of molecular machines and devices. Among the most ...
