  • Polymers and Fuels from Renewable Resources

    Prof. Charlotte K. Williams from Oxford University receives the Otto Roelen Medal 2018. This prize will be awarded by DECHEMA and the German Catalysis Society in recognition of her developments in the field of highly active catalysts for carbon dioxide copolymerization. This enables renewable resour more

  • Chemical industry will use waste gas from steel factories to make plastics

    The use of carbon dioxide and other waste gases as a new source of raw materials is increasingly a topic of interest at the European level. A new consortium of 14 partners from seven countries, led by materials manufacturer Covestro, is now planning to investigate how flue gas from the steel industr more

  • Nanoscale islands dot light-driven catalyst

    Individual nanoscale nuggets of gold, copper, aluminum, silver and other metals that capture light's energy and put it to work are being employed by Rice University scientists who have discovered a way to build multifunctional nanoscale structures. The structures have an aluminum core and are dotted more

The Chemistry of the World Cup Football

A number of chemical materials are used in the manufacture of the Brazuca, the World Cup football. The majority of these materials are polymers; these are very long molecules built up from many smaller component molecules. A simple, everyday example is polyethene, used to make some plastic bags. Dif more

The Chemistry of the EURO 2016 Football

This year’s European Championships are now well under way in France, and there’s already been some great football on show. It might surprise you to learn that some chemistry has also been taking centre-stage! The EURO 2016 ball is a triumph of materials science, and in this post we take a look at so more

The Chemistry of a Football Shirt

With the new season of the Premier League kicking off this weekend, it seemed a good time to take a look at the chemicals that make up your average football shirt. Even if the start of a new football season isn’t the kind of event to fill you with excitement, it’s still intriguing from a chemistry p more

Good Titration Practice™ Polyols and Polymers

Polyols and resins are becoming more and more relevant in our lives. Not only used for making polymers, polyols see more use in construction materials, paints and bonding. Titration is commonly used to quantify key characteristics of polyols which vary as much as their intended use. Learn the best m
