  • Infrared in the heel

    Substances that emit light in the near infrared (NIR) range are needed for a wide variety of applications, from fibre-optic telecommunications to imaging techniques for biomedicine. A Swiss research team has now for the first time developed a chromium complex that emits light in the coveted longer-w more

  • Infrared Held in a Pincer

    Many applications, from fiber-optic telecommunications to biomedical imaging processes require substances that emit light in the near-infrared range (NIR). A research team in Switzerland has now developed the first chromium complex that emits light in the coveted, longer wavelength NIR-II range. In more

  • Developing new materials for the fusion reactor

    In the future fusion reactor, plasma is confined by using the magnetic field inside the doughnut-shaped vacuum vessel. The blanket is in a location where it almost touches the plasma, and as if to enfold the plasma the blanket is placed on the inner surface of the vacuum chamber. The blanket, by abs more

Colours of Transition Metal Ions in Aqueous Solution

This graphic looks at the colours of transition metal ions when they are in aqueous solution (in water), and also looks at the reason why we see coloured compounds and complexes for transition metals. This helps explain, for example, why rust (iron oxide) is an orange colour, and why the Statue of L more

Testing for Cations

A previous post looked at the colours of transition metals, and the origin of their colours – this graphic, on the other hand, looks at how transition metals (and some non-transition metals) can be identified by the precipitates they form with sodium hydroxide and ammonia solutions. I’m going to kee more

The Dark Side of Fireworks

Many of us enjoyed watching spectacular fireworks displays to usher in the new year. However, the vibrant colours of fireworks belie the effects that they can have on the environment. With this graphic, we take a look at some of the issues that they can cause. more
