How the investigation of ion oscillations can lead to better batteries
Electrolytes play a key role in many areas: They are crucial for the storage of energy in our body as well as in batteries. In order to release energy, ions - charged atoms - must move in a liquid such as water. Until now the precise mechanism by which they move through the atoms and molecules of ...
The European large-scale research initiative BATTERY 2030+ presents the long-term research roadmap that outlines the actions needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future. The transformation to a climate-neutral society requires fundamental changes in the way we generate and use ...
ETH researchers analysed various possibilities for reducing the net CO2 emissions of the chemical industry to zero. Their conclusion? The chemical industry can in fact have a carbon-neutral future. Switzerland’s Federal Council has decided that the country should become carbon-neutral by 2050. ...
Nouryon has entered into an agreement to acquire the merchant triethyl aluminum (TEAL) business of Sasol, including its specialty fleet of returnable cylinders. TEAL is a metal alkyl essential in the production of high-volume plastics including polypropylene and polyethylene. The acquisition is ...
Drops of water falling on or sliding over surfaces may leave behind traces of electrical charge, causing the drops to charge themselves. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz have now begun a detailed investigation into this phenomenon that accompanies us in ...
Charged in a matter of seconds
Sustainable energy storage is in great demand. Researchers at Uppsala University have therefore developed an all-organic proton battery that can be charged in a matter of seconds. The battery can be charged and discharged over 500 times without any significant loss of capacity. The researchers ...
The ultra-fast change of light helicity is particularly interesting to observe processes in magnetic materials
At the BESSY II storage ring, a joint team of accelerator physicists, undulator experts and experimenters has shown how the helicity of circularly polarized synchrotron radiation can be switched faster - up to a million times faster than before. They used an elliptical double-undulator developed ...
The mineral could be used in implantology, drug development or water treatment
A new type of crystalline calcium phosphate has been discovered and analysed in the laboratories of Leibniz University Hannover (LUH). Calcium orthophosphates, a group of biominerals, are a vital part of the human body and can be found in solid structures such as bones or teeth. Calcium ...
When and how self-cleaning of superhydrophobic surfaces works
Dirt is not always dirt. Some dirt, such as dust, adheres only slightly to surfaces. But there is also dirt, such as dried paint, which sticks strongly. How can the adhesive properties of a surface be adjusted so that different types of dirt do not stick to it? This knowledge is essential to ...
At nova-Institute’s first online conferences on PtX and Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU), 50 speakers presented and discussed the future of aviation fuels and carbon dioxide as feedstock! In the face of the current crisis, nova-Institute decided to defy the circumstances and found a new ...
