  • CO2 Catalysis Made More Accessible

    Many industrial processes emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, however, current electrochemical separation methods are expensive and consume large amounts of power. They also require expensive and rare metals as catalysts. A study in the journal Angewandte Chemie describes a new a more

  • 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

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
