  • Bismuth shows novel conducting properties

    Topological insulators are materials that insulate on the inside but conduct electrical current on their surface. The current flow without resistance and respond in unconventional ways to electric and magnetic fields. These unique properties are studied with real interest towards future applications more

  • Rutgers-led research could lead to more efficient electronics

    A Rutgers-led team of physicists has demonstrated a way to conduct electricity between transistors without energy loss, opening the door to low-power electronics and, potentially, quantum computing that would be far faster than today's computers. Their findings, which involved using a special mix of more

  • Magic in metal could help put excess carbon dioxide to good use

    The chunk of metal sitting on a table in Joel Rosenthal's office at the University of Delaware looks like it should belong in a wizard's pocket. Shiny silver with shocks of pink and splashes of gold, it's called bismuth, and it's currently used to make products ranging from shotgun pellets to cosmet more

Group 5 Elements

The latest of the element infographics looks at the Group 5 elements. There is, once again, an interesting fact that I couldn’t quite fit in, or left out at the expense of others: Bismuth-209 was long thought to have heaviest stable nucleus of any element, until 2003 when it was determined by French more

The Chemistry of Fireworks

The obvious place to start is the bangs of fireworks when they explode into bursts of colour. These can be produced simply by compacted gunpowder, which if suitably confined can give a decent result. However, it’s more common for the ignition of a specific explosive mixture to be utilised. This mixt more
