Tip tricks control reactions in a single molecule

Pulses from an atom-sharp tip enable researchers to break and form chemical bonds at will

31-Aug-2022

Chemical reactions often produce messy mixtures of different products. Hence, chemists spend a lot of time coaxing their reactions to be more selective to make particular target molecules. Now, an international team of researchers has achieved that kind of selectivity by delivering voltage pulses ...

Organic water splitters get a boost

Nanoparticle photocatalyst can generate hydrogen fuel from water more efficiently than their standard inorganic semiconductor counterparts

14-Jun-2022

Organic semiconductor-based photocatalysts conceived by a KAUST-led team could make hydrogen easier to generate from water using sunlight. Sunlight is the most abundant source of renewable energy, but its inability to produce consistent energy levels over time means it cannot meet energy needs on ...

Smog clears on car exhaust catalyst design

Systematic study resolves a debate on the best combination of metals to catalytically clean NOx from vehicle emissions

09-Jun-2022

Smog-producing chemicals could be almost eliminated from the tailpipes of diesel cars and vans, using a new exhaust catalyst concept developed at KAUST. After systematically studying multiple catalyst compositions, the research team identified the ideal atomic recipe to catalytically remove NOx ...

Making light work of emerging micropollutants

Dangerous and environmentally harmful organic micropollutants can be successfully removed from wastewater using high-intensity pulses of light

12-Jan-2022

Carbon-based organic micropollutants in water can be removed by treatment with high-intensity pulses of light in a procedure developed and demonstrated by researchers at KAUST. This photodegradation process was already known to be feasible, but its use was limited by the long treatment times it ...
