A cool chemical separation technology

A diverse category of porous materials can separate and purify key industrial chemicals at low temperatures

11-Mar-2021

Gas and liquid separation processes in the chemical industry could be made more efficient and environmentally friendly by using substances known as intrinsically porous materials (IPMs). KAUST researchers review the prospects for IPMs in the journal Accounts of Chemical Research. Niveen Khashab ...

Hot electrons send CO2 back to the future

Catalyst nanoparticles trap an unprecedented range of wavelengths of light to convert carbon dioxide into methane.

05-Mar-2021

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major driver of global warming, but this gas could also serve as a valuable resource. Researchers at KAUST have developed an efficient catalyst that uses light energy to convert CO2 and hydrogen into methane (CH4). This counteracts the release of CO2 when ...
