A new way to decontaminate water and gas with a new 3D extra-large pore zeolite

An extra-large pore silica zeolite from a silicate chain developed


An international team of researchers with the participation of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has created the most porous stable zeolite known to date, a new pure silica zeolite called ZEO-3. This zeolite was formed by an unprecedented topotactic condensation of a 1D silicate chain ...

Microplastics deposited on the seafloor triple in 20 years

First high-resolution reconstruction of microplastic pollution from sediments obtained in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea


The total amount of microplastics deposited on the bottom of oceans has tripled in the past two decades with a progression that corresponds to the type and volume of consumption of plastic products by society. This is the main conclusion of a study developed by the Institute of Environmental ...

New X-ray imaging technique to study the transient phases of quantum materials

An international team of researchers has demonstrated for the first time the use of a new lensless ultrafast X-Ray method to image phase transitions


The use of light to produce transient phases in quantum materials is fast becoming a novel way to engineer new properties in them, such as the generation of superconductivity or nanoscale topological defects. However, visualizing the growth of a new phase in a solid is not easy, due in-part to ...

New approaches to the mystery of why ice is slippery

Compatible hypotheses which pave the way for energy savings


The surface of the ice melts in contact with a solid, forming a lubricant layer which is self-perpetuating, as greater weight and slippage are applied to it. This cooperative phenomenon makes the ice more slippery and more likely to cause skating or car accidents, according to international ...

LAUDA inaugurates new plant in Terrassa, Spain


The Spanish subsidiary of LAUDA DR. R. WOBSER GMBH & CO. KG, LAUDA Ultra-cool, SL, has officially inaugurated its new production site with a celebratory ceremony in Terrassa, near Barcelona. In doing so, the temperature control specialist has successfully completed its first construction project ...

Solving stability problems of relevant graphene derivatives

An international team involving chemists, physicists and materials scientists implements protection/deprotection strategies for the on-surface synthesis of technologically prominent graphene nanostructures


In the last decades, a new synthetic approach has been developed, generally termed as “on-surface synthesis” that substantially departs from standard wet-chemistry. Instead of the three-dimensional space of solvents in the latter, the environment of the reactants in this new approach are ...

KRAHN Chemie subsidiary Pemco Trigueros and the Spanish sales office join forces, forming KRAHN Iberia


KRAHN Chemie bundles activities of its subsidiary Pemco Trigueros and the Spanish sales office under the name KRAHN Iberia to offer high-quality products for the markets lubricants, plastics, and adhesives & sealants. In January, KRAHN Chemie became the majority shareholder of Pemco Trigueros, ...

Structure of a metal-organic material with applications in the fields of health care and communications determined

A study with the participation of CSIC shows that copper escuarate contains large empty channels of high porosity


A research team with the participation of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has determined the crystalline structure of copper squarate, a metal-organic material. The scientists have discovered that, as in other materials of this type, it contains large empty channels that give it ...

The saliva of the wax moth contains enzymes capable of degrading plastic

A team of CSIC researchers discovers that the saliva of this insect harbors enzymes that initiate the degradation of polyethylene in a short time


A team of CSIC researchers has discovered that the saliva of the wax moth degrades plastic, which could have numerous applications in the treatment or recycling of plastic waste. This team discovered in 2017 that this species of worm (the lepidopteran Galleria mellonella) is capable of breaking ...

Halogens emitted from oceans amplify global warming of methane in the atmosphere

Iodine, bromine and chlorine transferred from the ocean have increased the lifetime and greenhouse effect of this gas by 6% to 9% over the century.


An international team, led by researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), has performed climate-related chemistry simulations to assess the impact of oceanic emissions of halogenated compounds (iodine, bromine and chlorine) on methane in the atmosphere, the second most ...
