Researchers produce first-ever videos of chemical synthesis at atomic resolution

26-Aug-2019

For the first time, researchers have managed to view previously inaccessible details of certain chemical processes. They have shown there are significant discrete stages to these processes which build on our knowledge of chemical synthesis. These details could aid in the development of methods to ...

Microorganisms build the best fuel efficient hydrogen cells

21-Aug-2019

For all the advances technology has made throughout our lives, in many cases it stands behind what nature can do. Ants can carry 5000 times their weight, and spider webs are five times stronger than steel. Fuel efficiency is no different. In a new study seen in Angewandte Chemie International ...

Extraordinarily thick organic light-emitting diodes solve nagging issues

New approach eases manufacturing constraints and improves viewing angle with little effect on performance

02-Aug-2019

By combining thin organic layers with thick layers of hybrid perovskite, researchers at Kyushu University in Japan have developed micrometer-thick organic light-emitting diodes that could improve the affordability and viewing angles of high-performance displays and televisions in the near ...

ELSI scientists discover new chemistry that may help explain the origins of cellular life

Chemists find simplest organic molecules can self-assemble to give cell-like structures under early Earth conditions

25-Jul-2019

Before life began on Earth, the environment likely contained a massive number of chemicals that reacted with each other more or less randomly, and it is unclear how things as complex as cells could have emerged from such chemical chaos. Now, a team led by Tony Z. Jia of the Earth-Life Science ...
