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 ...

New mechanism to transfer chirality between molecules in the nanoscale field

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 ...

New system based on protonated ceramic membranes produces hydrogen industrially

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. ...

New cutting-edge thermoplastic materials for the aerospace sector

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 ...

New, more sustainable catalyst developed for fine chemicals industry

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 ...

Researchers reproduce artificially the learning and forgetting functions of the brain with magnetic systems


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 ...

Portable and inexpensive stochastic lasers with applications in microscopy

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 ...

Study shows that ingestion of microplastics alters gut microbiota

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 ...

Twisted bilayer graphene dances with light

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 ...
