Catalysis

Accelerating or facilitating chemical reactions is pivotal for many conversions and industrial processes. Hydrocarbon cracking in oil refineries, the reduction of nitrogen oxides in car emissions by means of the platinum catalytic converter, the oxidation of hydrogen in fuel cells, biocatalytical enzymatic conversions or ammonia synthesis are only a few examples of how much industry relies on potent catalysts.

  • Sustainable chemistry at the quantum level

    Developing catalysts for sustainable fuel and chemical production requires a kind of Goldilocks Effect - some catalysts are too ineffective while others are too uneconomical. Catalyst testing also takes a lot of time and resources. New breakthroughs in computational quantum chemistry, however, hold more

  • Turning carbon dioxide into liquid fuel

    Catalysts speed up chemical reactions and form the backbone of many industrial processes. For example, they are essential in transforming heavy oil into gasoline or jet fuel. Today, catalysts are involved in over 80 percent of all manufactured products. A research team, led by the U.S. Department of more

  • Template-Free Synthesis of Mesoporous β-MnO2 Nanoparticles

    Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology explore a novel and simplistic method to synthesize manganese dioxide with a specific crystalline structure called β-MnO2. Their study sheds light on how different synthesis conditions can produce manganese dioxide with distinct porous structures, hinting more

Oxybromination of methane over vanadium phosphate

ETH Zurich scientists have discovered a new catalyst that allows the easy conversion of natural gas constituents into precursors for the production of fuels or complex chemicals, such as polymers or pharmaceuticals. The new catalyst is extremely stable and results in fewer unwanted by-products. ... more

Nano-spike catalysts convert carbon dioxide directly into ethanol

In a new twist to waste-to-fuel technology, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed an electrochemical process that uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol. Their finding, which involves nanofabric ... more

The Chemistry of Vehicle Emissions Reduction & The Volkswagen Scandal

Volkswagen have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. The company admitted to installing a ‘defeat device’ in millions of cars which made it appear in emissions tests that they emitted far lower levels of particular pollutants than they actually did in normal road conditions.
