  • Fine-tuned hydrocarbon separation at low energy cost

    An electrochemical approach developed at KAUST produces molecular-sieving membranes that could enable a cheap energy-efficient separation of light hydrocarbons, such as olefins and paraffins. This separation, critical for the petrochemical industry, usually relies on extremely energy-intensive proce more

  • At Last: Separated and Freshly Bound

    The carbon–hydrogen bonds in alkanes—particularly those at the ends of the molecules, where each carbon has three hydrogen atoms bound to it—are very hard to “crack” if you want to replace the hydrogen atoms with other atoms. Methane (CH4) and ethane (CH3CH3) are made up, exclusively, of such tightl more

  • Sustainable chemical synthesis with platinum

    Researchers used platinum and aluminum compounds to create a catalyst which enables certain chemical reactions to occur more efficiently than ever before. The catalyst could significantly reduce energy usage in various industrial and pharmaceutical processes. It also allows for a wider range of sust more

Functional Groups in Organic Compounds

A functional group in chemistry is the part of the molecule that gives it its particular reactivity; simple molecules that contain the same functional group in their structure can be expected to react in similar ways. More complicated chemical molecules may contain more than one functional group wit more

Cosmetic Chemistry

Lipstick is one of the most commonly used cosmetic products – and a range of chemicals are required for its production. The choice of these ingredients is carefully considered to provide the desired colour, glossiness, and indelibility. A single stick of lipstick will contain several hundred differe 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

  • Staying power

    Geoscientists, biologists and chemists at the University of Tübingen are working in collaboration with IFAM (Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials in Bremen, Germany) to uncover the workings of insect surface adhesion. The goal of this project is the synthesis of an adhesive based on insect secretions. more

  • Heike Gerhardt

    Heike Gerhardt studied chemistry at the universities of Tübingen and Vienna, already choosing to specialize in analysis during her master’s degree at the University of Vienna. She has worked at the University of Tübingen under Prof. Lämmerhofer since 2012: with her doctoral research work nearly comp more

Hydrocarbon

Hydrocarbon are key to obtaining hydrocarbons; crude oil is processed through several stages to form desirable hydrocarbons, used in fuel and other commercial products. In organic chemistry , a hydrocarbon is an organic compound consisting ent ... more
