Chemists develop framework to enable efficient synthesis of 'information-dense' molecules

Researchers harness information theory to better understand how to make complex and compact molecules resembling those in nature

27-Oct-2020

A team led by scientists at Scripps Research has developed a theoretical approach that could ease the process of making highly complex, compact molecules. Such molecules are often found in plants and other organisms, and many are considered desirable starting points for developing potential new ...

Charging electric cars up to 90% in 6 minutes

(Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH)) POSTECH Professor Byoungwoo Kang's research team uncovers a new Li-ion battery electrode material that can achieve high-energy density and

27-Oct-2020

With Telsa in the lead, the electric vehicle market is growing around the world. Unlike conventional cars that use internal combustion engines, electric cars are solely powered by lithium ion batteries, so the battery performance defines the car's overall performance. However, slow charging times ...

Thermal vision of snakes inspires soft pyroelectric materials

26-Oct-2020

Converting heat into electricity is a property thought to be reserved only for stiff materials like crystals. However, researchers--inspired by the infrared (IR) vision of snakes--developed a mathematical model for converting soft, organic structures into so-called "pyroelectric" materials. The ...

Turning streetwear into solar power plants

Ready-to-wear solar cells

23-Oct-2020

Empa researchers succeeded in developing a material that works like a luminescent solar concentrator and can even be applied to textiles. This opens up numerous possibilities for producing energy directly where it is needed, i.e. in the use of everyday electronics. Our hunger for energy is ...

Nanopatterns of proteins detected by cryo-electron microscopy

Nanostructures for electronics, catalysis, medicine

22-Oct-2020

A team from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) used cryo electron microscopy to detect regular, two-dimensional structures in the form of Pascal triangles in a shock frozen protein material. The samples have been synthesized by a Chinese research group. The method of cryo electron microscopy has the ...

Prebiotic chemistry - In the beginning, there was sugar

Chemist reports a reaction pathway in which minerals catalyze the formation of sugars in the absence of water

22-Oct-2020

Organic molecules formed the basis for the evolution of life. But how could inorganic precursors have given rise to them? Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich chemist Oliver Trapp now reports a reaction pathway in which minerals catalyze the formation of sugars in the absence of ...

Climate protection: Chemists develop new material for the separation of CO₂ from industrial waste gases

The separation process is both energy efficient and cost-effective

22-Oct-2020

Chemists at the University of Bayreuth have developed a material that could well make an important contribution to climate protection and sustainable industrial production. With this material, the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO₂) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, ...
