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 ...
Chirality: from fundamental particles to biomolecules
If we compare the right to the left hand, we can see these are specular images —that is, like symmetrical shapes reflected in a mirror— and they cannot superimpose on each other. This property is chirality, a feature of the matter that plays with the symmetry of biological structures at different ...
An international team publishes a system that generates this universal fuel with almost no waste
An international team involving the Institute of Chemical Technology (ITQ), a joint center of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), has developed a new electrified reactor to obtain hydrogen in a more sustainable and energy-efficient way. ...
Results from the European HITCOMP project
The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) coordinates the HITCOMP (High Temperature Characterisation and Modelling of Thermoplastic Composites) project within the Horizon 2020 programme, which aims to study the possible advantages of thermoplastic materials in the aerospace industry. The ...
10 kW redox flow demonstrator paves the way for a 50 kW flow battery
A team of CSIC researchers has developed a 10 kilowatt (kW) vanadium redox flow battery prototype to demonstrate its viability as a large-scale electrical energy storage system, especially for renewable energies. This 10 kW prototype (10 kW of power and 20 kWh of energy) makes it possible to ...
Researchers optimize the production of benzimidazoles, organic compounds widely used in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries
A research group at the Institute of Chemical Technology (ITQ), a joint center of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), has developed a process to obtain benzimidazoles, organic compounds widely used in the fine chemicals industry, in a ...
With the advent of Big Data, current computational architectures are proving to be insufficient. Difficulties in decreasing transistors’ size, large power consumption and limited operating speeds make neuromorphic computing a promising alternative. Neuromorphic computing, a new brain-inspired ...
This is the first time such lasers have been obtained using electrical power, according to a study published in 'Nature Photonics'
Research led by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has succeeded in developing a new technique for the fabrication of stochastic lasers using electrical power, as described in Nature Photonics. Conventional lasers are characterized by emitting a coherent beam of light, in a direction ...
CSIC researchers have discovered that the digestion of microplastics can decrease the amount of beneficial bacteria present in the colon.
A group of researchers from the CSIC has discovered that the ingestion of microplastics reduces the bacterial diversity of the microbiota of the colon, in addition to producing an alteration of the balance in the microorganisms present. The study, published in Scientific Reports, has shown that ...
How light and electrons move in concert in the material when illuminated with infrared light
When two layers of graphene are placed one on top of the other, and twisted among them by a very small angle, a “moiré pattern” is formed and the physical properties of the system have proven to change dramatically. In particular, near the ‘magic’ angle of 1 degree, the electrons slow down ...
