  • Electrode’s ‘hot edges’ convert CO₂ gas into fuels and chemicals

    A team of scientists has created a bowl-shaped electrode with 'hot edges' which can efficiently convert CO2 from gas into carbon based fuels and chemicals, helping combat the climate change threat posed by atmospheric carbon dioxide. The research team, from the University of Bath, Fudan University, more

  • Methane-consuming bacteria could be the future of fuel

    Known for their ability to remove methane from the environment and convert it into a usable fuel, methanotrophic bacteria have long fascinated researchers. But how, exactly, these bacteria naturally perform such a complex reaction has been a mystery. Now an interdisciplinary team at Northwestern Uni more

  • Crowd Oil – Fuels From Air-conditioning Systems

    Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Toronto have proposed a method enabling air conditioning and ventilation systems to produce synthetic fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water from the ambient air. Compact plants are to separate CO2 from the ambient a more

Hypergolic Fuels – The Chemistry of a Rocket Launch

Chemist Andrea Sella combines dimethylhydrazine with dinitrogen tetroxide to show how hypergolic mixtures fire rockets into space. more

Hypergolic Fuels

Chemist Andrea Sella combines dimethylhydrazine with dinotrogen tetroxide to show how hypergolic mixtures fire rockets into space. There are a few ways to use chemistry to power a rocket, but all involved an oxider and a fuel. And with no oxygen in space, what’s the best solution? Professor Andr ... more

Determine C,H,N, and S Fast and Reliable – in Every Matrix

The analysis of CHN and S is a standard technique for caloric determination and environmental compatibility of fossil fuels such as coal, coke and peat as well as for regenerating raw materials such as biomass or combustible garbage. These elements are determined with highest precision and accuracy more

  • Saccharidic tracers in atmospheric aerosols

    Atmosperic aerosols have a strong impact on the climate. Within the organic aerosol fraction, anhydrosugars and sugar alcohols are valuable tracers for biomass burning and biogenic sources. They are best determined by ion chromatography coupled to pu more

  • How to Analyze Sulfur and Trace Element Content in FAME

    Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) in automotive fuels, mostly derived from vegetable oil, is currently blended with regular diesel fuel in predetermined ranges more

The Chemistry of Petrol & The Tetraethyl Lead Story

18th May marks the date of birth of Thomas Midgley, who made significant contributions to something many of us make use of on a regular basis: petrol. Midgley was the research assistant to Charles Kettering, and the duo were responsible for the addition of the compound tetraethyl lead to petrol, an more

Hydrogen Peroxide

It’s been a while since the last update to the Everyday Chemicals series – this latest graphic looks at hydrogen peroxide. Everyone’s familiar with the term ‘peroxide blonde’, stemming from the use of hydrogen peroxide in hair dyes, but this accounts for just one of the compound’s many uses; it’s al more
