  • New catalyst for hydrogen production is a step toward clean fuel

    A nanostructured composite material developed at UC Santa Cruz has shown impressive performance as a catalyst for the electrochemical splitting of water to produce hydrogen. An efficient, low-cost catalyst is essential for realizing the promise of hydrogen as a clean, environmentally friendly fuel. more

  • Conjugated tetraenes from butadiene and alkynes

    Conjugated tetraenes are important key substructures in electronic materials, natural products and pharmaceutical molecules. However, they are difficult to synthesize. They are conventionally prepared by repetitions of the stoichiometric reactions using phosphorus reagents and subsequent reduction a more

  • Breakthrough could launch organic electronics beyond cell phone screens

    A discovery by an international team of researchers from Princeton University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and Humboldt University in Berlin points the way to more widespread use of an advanced technology generally known as organic electronics. The research focuses on organic semiconductors, more

Transition Metals

This graphic looks at some general properties of the transition metals – I had a little less space to work with than with the previous graphics, on account of the large number of elements that the transition metals encompass, but hopefully what’s included is still of use. more

  • Water instead of mineral oil

    Optical active substances made from chiral catalysis form the basis of many drugs. Expensive precious-metal catalysts are required for the chemical production, which due to their thermal instability decompose at high temperatures and can therefore only be used once. The innovative process of DexLeChem GmbH makes it possible for the first time to use these precious-metal catalysts made from rhodium, ruthenium or iridium more than once, without modifying them. At the same time, reaction occurs in aqueous solutions instead of mineral-oil-based solvents, which increases the sustainability of the process. This is a milestone in catalysis and a real opportunity for the pharmaceutical industry. more
