Determining the structure of a molecule with laser-induced electron diffraction

11-Mar-2021

Light microscopes have revolutionized our understanding of the microcosmos, but their resolution is limited to about 100 nanometers. To see how molecules bond, break, or change their structure, we need at least 1000 times better resolution. Laser induced electron diffraction (LIED) is a technique ...

The expanding possibilities of bio-based polymers

Researchers present a new route to prepare biobased polyesters with tuneable properties

04-Mar-2021

Finding innovative and sustainable solutions to our material needs is one of the core objectives of green chemistry. The myriad plastics that envelop our daily life - from mattresses to food and cars - are mostly made from oil-based monomers which are the building blocks of polymers. Therefore, ...

New technology to detect bitter almonds in real time

02-Feb-2021

Who hasn't at some point been chewing on an almond and tasted an unpleasant and unexpected aftertaste that has nothing to do with the taste we are used to from one of the most consumed nuts in the world? The culprit has a name: amygdalin, a diglucoside that, when in contact with enzymes present ...

Cascades with carbon dioxide

Novel catalytic process for converting CO2 into valuable chemical intermediates in the form of cyclic carbonates

10-Sep-2020

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is not just an undesirable greenhouse gas, it is also an interesting source of raw materials that are valuable and can be recycled sustainably. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Spanish researchers have now introduced a novel catalytic process for convertingCO2 into valuable ...

Fuel from disused tyres

Research is seeking a solution for used tyres by means of catalytic pyrolysis

10-Aug-2020

Used tyres pose a serious environmental risk owing to the damage that may be caused when they are stored in the environment. They are emerging in ever greater numbers from one year to the next in developed countries so revalorizing them is a subject that is attracting great interest and is being ...

Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake

13-May-2020

Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of "magic" shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to "spin" easier in one ...
