Reducing the carbon footprint of methane by converting it into methanol with a new enzyme
18-Sep-2023 - A team led by Professor Osami Shoji at Nagoya University in Japan has developed a technology to convert methane, the principal component of natural gas, into methanol at room temperature in water. They used an enzyme that can be easily mass-produced, offering the possibility of a cheap and ...
Breakthrough: Scientists develop artificial molecules that behave like real ones
The uses of this new technique are endless: ‘We have only begun to imagine what we can use this for. We have so many ideas...’
12-Jun-2023 - Scientists from the Radboud University have developed synthetic molecules that resemble real organic molecules. A collaboration of researchers, led by Alex Khajetoorians and Daniel Wegner, can now simulate the behaviour of real molecules by using artificial molecules. In this way, they can tweak ...
Programmable synthetic materials
In the future, MOFs could form the basis of programmable chemical molecules
10-Aug-2020 - In DNA, information is stored in the sequence of chemical building blocks; in computers, information consists of sequences of zeros and ones. Researchers want to transfer this concept to artificial molecules. Artificial molecules could one day form the information unit of a new type of computer ...
