Powerful electrochemical process destroys water contaminants, such as pesticides
A team of engineers may be one step closer to cleaning up heavily contaminated industrial wastewater streams. Researchers from the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering developed an electrochemical oxidation process with the aim of cleaning up complex wastewater that contained a toxic ...
Making catalysts has been expensive and complicated – until now
Chemical engineers from UNSW Sydney have developed new technology that helps convert harmful carbon dioxide emissions into chemical building blocks to make useful industrial products like fuel and plastics. And if adopted on a large scale, the process could give the world breathing space as it ...
Largest spectral, color-tuning range from an atomically thin quantum system demonstrated
The researchers say their results, using an atomically thin material, hexagonal boron nitride, constitute a significant step forward in understanding light-matter interactions of quantum systems in 2D materials, and the journey towards scalable on-chip devices for quantum technologies. The study ...
Turn tropical fruits into super-capacitors
Imagine if we could use naturally-grown products, like plants and fruit, to store electricity that charges commonly used electronics like mobile phones, tablets, laptops or even electric cars? Researchers from the University of Sydney have done just that, and have developed a method that uses ...
After 90 years, scientists reveal the structure of benzene
One of the fundamental mysteries of chemistry has been solved by Australian scientists - and the result may have implications for future designs of solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes and other next gen technologies. Ever since the 1930s debate has raged inside chemistry circles concerning ...
Safe Potassium-Ion Batteries
Australian scientists have developed a nonflammable electrolyte for potassium and potassium-ion batteries, for applications in next-generation energy-storage systems beyond lithium technology. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists write that the novel electrolyte based on an organic ...
Imagine having access to a battery, which has the potential to power your phone for five continuous days, or enable an electric vehicle to drive more than 1000km without needing to "refuel". Monash University researchers are on the brink of commercialising the world's most efficient ...
Strained, Symmetric, and New
Many natural compounds used in medicine have complex molecular architectures that are difficult to recreate in the lab. Help could come from a small hydrocarbon molecule, called tetravinylallene, which has been synthesized for the first time by Australian scientists. As detailed in the journal ...
Ancient protein pumps could be key to new green polymers
The molecular machinery used by bacteria to resist chemicals designed to kill them could also help produce precursors for a new generation of nylon and other polymers, according to new research by scientists from Australia and the UK. "Resistance to artificial antiseptics appears to be a lucky ...
Monash University researchers have developed technology that can deliver clean water to thousands of communities worldwide
An estimated 844 million people don't have access to clean water, while every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by lack of safe water and an unclean environment. Seawater desalination and wastewater recycling are two ways to ease the problem of water shortage, but conventional ...
