A magnetic stirrer bar with an integrated process monitoring system
Miniaturized computer systems and wireless technology are offering scientists new ways to keep tabs on reactions without the need for larger, cumbersome equipment. In a proof-of-concept study in ACS Sensors, researchers describe an inexpensive new device that functions like a conventional ...
New research suggests that graphene - made in a specific way - could be used to make more durable hydrogen fuel cells for cars
In the study, published in the journal Nanoscale, scientists produced graphene via a special, scalable technique and used it to develop hydrogen fuel cell catalysts. The research team, involving scientists from Queen Mary University of London and University College London (UCL), showed that this ...
It is a perfect fit
ICIS, part of RELX, today announced it has acquired Chemical Data, LLC (CDI), a leading provider of US petrochemical price benchmarks, market analysis, and predictive analytics, based in Houston. The combined capabilities create a global presence and trusted intelligence in key petrochemical ...
$5 billion deal for bp’s global aromatics, acetyls and related businesses
bp announced that it has agreed to sell its global petrochemicals businessto INEOS for a total consideration of $5 billion, subject to customaryadjustments. The agreed sale, the next strategic step in reinventing bp, willfurther strengthen bp’s balance sheet and delivers its target for ...
Educational tool to explain the processes at work inside the battery cells and the electrochemistry behind them
Tower block games can be used to explain to schoolchildren how lithium-ion batteries work, meeting an educational need to better understand a power source that has become vital to everyday life. While lithium-ion batteries are abundant in so many of our electronic devices, from smart phones to ...
Chemical process can be used to break down real consumer plastics and produce green solvent
A faster, more efficient way of recycling plant-based "bioplastics" has been developed by a team of scientists at the Universities of Birmingham and Bath. The team has shown how their chemical recycling method not only speeds up the process, it can also be converted into a new product - a ...
Method represents a simple, inexpensive and scalable approach to produce multi-functional graphene infused synthetic opals
Scientists have taken inspiration from the biomimicry of butterfly wings and peacock feathers to develop an innovative opal-like material that could be the cornerstone of next generation smart sensors. An international team of scientists, led by the Universities of Surrey and Sussex, has ...
Scientists have successfully developed a new technique to reliably grow crystals of organic soluble molecules from nanoscale droplets, unlocking the potential of accelerated new drug development. Chemistry experts from Newcastle and Durham universities, working in collaboration with SPT Labtech, ...
The ICIS Petrochemical Index (IPEX) plunged in April as the impact of the falling oil price and coronavirus-driven demand destruction slammed the sector. The global index stands at a level last seen in November 2003 and is just below that in January 2009. Each of the regional components of the ...
An open-source design gives schools, homes and labs the chance to 3D print their own precision microscopes
For the first time, labs around the world can 3D print their own precision microscopes to analyse samples and detect diseases , thanks to an open-source design created at the University of Bath. The OpenFlexure Microscope, described in Biomedical Optics Express, is a fully automated, ...
