  • Halogens emitted from oceans amplify global warming of methane in the atmosphere

    An international team, led by researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), has performed climate-related chemistry simulations to assess the impact of oceanic emissions of halogenated compounds (iodine, bromine and chlorine) on methane in the atmosphere, the second most important c more

  • Impossible material made possible inside a graphene sandwich

    Atoms bind together by sharing electrons. The way this happens depends on the atom types but also on conditions such as temperature and pressure. In two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene, atoms join along a plane to form structures just one atom thick, which leads to fascinating propertie more
