Developing a nanoscale 'clutch'
A model microscopic system to demonstrate the transmission of torque in the presence of thermal fluctuations - necessary for the creation of a tiny 'clutch' operating at the nanoscale - has been assembled at the University of Bristol as part of an international collaboration.

Enough Heat to Chill Out
The search for sustainable ways of producing energy is currently a very popular and important topic of investigation. Water adsorption/desorption is a process that can be used for the transformation of energy. Porous solids enable larger amounts of adsorption/desorption, as they provide a g ... more
Clariant and Jülich Fine Chemicals Lead Consortium to Investigate Broader Use of Oxynitrilases
As part of its program "Sustainable Bio-production," Germany's Federal Ministry of Education & Research has awarded a consortium a grant to study the feasibility of oxynitrilase technologies as a more efficient method to manufacture chiral building block chemicals currently required by the ... more
