NSF-DFG EChem Award Announcement
Through a new award program, the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) have joined forces to award the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Technical University of Darmstadt a three-year $720,000 research grant ($500,000 ...
List includes potential carcinogens that act by stimulating production of hormones that fuel breast tumors
Every day, people are exposed to a variety of synthetic chemicals through the products they use or the food they eat. For many of these chemicals, the health effects are unknown. Now a new study shows that several hundred common chemicals, including pesticides, ingredients in consumer products, ...
Researchers made an unexpected breakthrough discovery
Using a pioneering imaging technique, Cornell University researchers obtained a high-resolution snapshot of how ligands, molecules that bind to other molecules or metals, interact with the surface of nanoparticles. In doing so, they made an unexpected breakthrough discovery. They determined that ...
First-of-their-kind snapshots reveal byproduct crippling powerful, experimental cells
For decades, scientists have tried to make reliable lithium-metal batteries. These high-performance storage cells hold 50% more energy than their prolific, lithium-ion cousins, but higher failure rates and safety problems like fires and explosions have crippled commercialization efforts. ...
Scientists have found a way to simultaneously increase the strength and ductility of an alloy
Scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, have found a way to simultaneously increase the strength and ductility of an alloy by introducing tiny precipitates into its matrix and tuning their size and spacing. The ...
New catalyst, which can make propylene from natural gas, is at least 10 times more efficient than current commercial catalysts
In a year that has already battered manufacturing supply chains, yet another shortage is complicating manufacturers' and consumers' lives: plastics, and the food packaging, automotive components, clothing, medical and lab equipment and countless other items that rely on them. But a new chemical ...
Closing of the transaction expected before the end of 2021
BASF and Clayton, Dubilier & Rice have signed an agreement to sell Solenis to Platinum Equity, a California-based private equity company founded in 1995. The transaction implies an enterprise value for Solenis of $5.25 billion, which includes net debt of around $2.5 billion, subject to ...
BASF acquires Zodiac Enterprises LLC assets in Caldwell, Texas
BASF has expanded its chemical catalyst recycling capacity and capability with the acquisition of Zodiac Enterprises LLC in Caldwell, Texas. The site recycles precious metals from industrial scrap, primarily chemical catalysts, and will complement BASF’s existing precious metal recycling ...
"Our ultimate goal is to transform carbon dioxide back into carbon-based chemicals"
For decades, researchers have been working toward mitigating excess atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. One promising approach captures atmospheric CO2 and then, through CO2 electrolysis, converts it into value-added chemicals and intermediates--like ethanol, ethylene, and other useful ...
It's first demonstrated use of a 2D, multi-metallic alloy
A two-dimensional alloy material -- made from five metals as opposed to the traditional two -- has been developed by a collaboration between researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis and researchers at the College of Engineering at the University of ...
