New breakthroughs in computational quantum chemistry, hold promise for discovering catalysts that are "just right" and thousands of times faster than standard approaches
Developing catalysts for sustainable fuel and chemical production requires a kind of Goldilocks Effect - some catalysts are too ineffective while others are too uneconomical. Catalyst testing also takes a lot of time and resources. New breakthroughs in computational quantum chemistry, however, ...
New electrocatalyst efficiently converts carbon dioxide into ethanol
Catalysts speed up chemical reactions and form the backbone of many industrial processes. For example, they are essential in transforming heavy oil into gasoline or jet fuel. Today, catalysts are involved in over 80 percent of all manufactured products. A research team, led by the U.S. Department ...
Brenntag announces the acquisition of the operating assets of US- based Suffolk Solutions, Inc’s caustic soda distribution business. “The business and the related terminals of Suffolk Solutions fit seamlessly into our ambitions to further link Brenntag’s caustic soda network in the Eastern United ...
Encapsulating multiple molecular catalysts in nanoporous metal-organic frameworks central to efficient transformation
Converting carbon dioxide to methanol, a potentially renewable alternative fuel, offers an opportunity to simultaneously form an alternative fuel and cut down on carbon dioxide emissions. Inspired by naturally occurring processes, a team of Boston College chemists used a multi-catalyst system to ...
Memory device, developed by USC researchers, shows record performance
Memory devices come in many forms. From USB sticks, to external hard-drives, to chips implanted directly into smartphones. What makes one better than another is usually a combination of new, groundbreaking materials and the novel device structure. The better the materials, and the way those ...
Researchers have designed new solid electrolytes that light the path to wider electrification of transportation
In the pursuit of a rechargeable battery that can power electric vehicles (EVs) for hundreds of miles on a single charge, scientists have endeavored to replace the graphite anodes currently used in EV batteries with lithium metal anodes. But while lithium metal extends an EV's driving range by ...
By manipulating ultracold molecules mid-chemical reaction, researchers crack a molecular disappearing act
In a famous parable, three blind men encounter an elephant for the first time. Each touches a part--the trunk, ear, or side--and concludes the creature is a thick snake, fan, or wall. This elephant, said Kang-Kuen Ni, is like the quantum world. Scientists can only explore a cell of this vast, ...
Unusual nanoparticles could could be useful for environmental cleanups, sensors, electronic devices and solar cells
Imagine tiny crystals that "blink" like fireflies and can convert carbon dioxide, a key cause of climate change, into fuels. A Rutgers-led team has created ultra-small titanium dioxide crystals that exhibit unusual "blinking" behavior and may help to produce methane and other fuels, according to ...
Dr. Batra succeeds Christopher O’Connell
Waters Corporation announced that Udit Batra, Ph.D. has been named the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, effective September 1, 2020. He will also join Waters’ Board of Directors at that time. Dr. Batra succeeds Christopher O’Connell who will remain in his current roles as ...
Researchers at Texas A&M University have invented a technology that can prevent lithium batteries from heating and failing
Cell phone batteries often heat up and, at times, can burst into flames. In most cases, the culprit behind such incidents can be traced back to lithium batteries. Despite providing long-lasting electric currents that can keep devices powered up, lithium batteries can internally short circuit, ...
