Sustainable chemistry at the quantum level

New breakthroughs in computational quantum chemistry, hold promise for discovering catalysts that are "just right" and thousands of times faster than standard approaches

10-Aug-2020

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, ...

Ultracold mystery solved

By manipulating ultracold molecules mid-chemical reaction, researchers crack a molecular disappearing act

22-Jul-2020

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, ...

'Blinking" crystals may convert CO2 into fuels

Unusual nanoparticles could could be useful for environmental cleanups, sensors, electronic devices and solar cells

21-Jul-2020

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 ...
