  • New function for plant enzyme could lead to green chemistry

    Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a new function in a plant enzyme that could have implications for the design of new chemical catalysts. The enzyme catalyzes, or initiates, one of the cornerstone chemical reactions needed to synthesize a wi more

  • Branching out: Making graphene from gum trees

    Graphene is the thinnest and strongest material known to humans. It's also flexible, transparent and conducts heat and electricity 10 times better than copper, making it ideal for anything from flexible nanoelectronics to better fuel cells. The new approach by researchers from RMIT University (Austr more

  • Catalytic converter with a green profile

    With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the chemist Zita Csendes has defined and tested iron complexes as a sustainable, inexpensive and efficient alternative to precious-metal catalysts. The shift from catalyst solution to reusable pore coating required mastering many chemical parameters more

  • Challenges

    Green Chemistry is one of the leading topics in the market today – sustainability gains more and more in importance for the strategic development of companies. The term „Green Chemistry“ was coined in 1991 ­and aims for the protection of human health and the environment. Twelve principles of Green Chemistry ­have been formulated to assist chemists and the chemical industry to develop new chemical products and processes or reengineer existing ones to reduce or eliminate industrial pollution. more
