  • New algorithm finds the optimal bond breaking point for single molecules

    Recent developments in atomic-force microscopy have enabled researchers to apply mechanical forces to individual molecules to induce chemical reactions. A research team from Spain and Germany has now developed a first-of-its-kind algorithm that determines the minimal force it takes to reach the opti more

  • A more sustainable way to refine metals

    A team of chemists in Canada has developed a way to process metals without using toxic solvents and reagents. The system, which also consumes far less energy than conventional techniques, could greatly shrink the environmental impact of producing metals from raw materials or from post-consumer elect more

  • Splitting disulphide bonds in water is more complicated than previously thought

    From a chemical perspective, splitting disulphide bonds under tensile stress is a substantially more complicated process than previously assumed. A team headed by Prof Dr Dominik Marx from Ruhr-Universität Bochum found out what happens in detail during this process - with the aid of extensive comput more
