Startup M2X Energy partners with UCF to convert greenhouse gases into low-carbon methanol

Partnership develops technology to convert methane gas, a common by-product of oil production, into methanol

26-Jan-2023

Most people realize the climate impacts of carbon dioxide. Not many people, however, know that methane, the main component of natural gas, is much more potent than carbon dioxide. While methane doesn’t remain in the atmosphere as long as CO2 (which can linger for thousands of years), it is 84 ...

Farewell to ‘forever’ – Destroying PFAS by grinding it up with a new additive

A new way to tackle 'forever chemicals'

25-Jan-2023

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are potentially harmful substances known as “forever chemicals” because they are so difficult to destroy. One emerging technique to degrade PFAS involves forcefully grinding them with metal balls in a moving container, but this technique can require ...

Simulations and experiments reveal unprecedented detail about water’s motion in salt water

Researchers captured extremely fast dynamics

24-Jan-2023

In salt water solutions, water molecules rapidly move around salt ions at a scale of more than a trillion times a second, according to both experiments and simulations led by scientists at New York University and the Sorbonne. “There is more to salt solutions than meets the eye,” said Alexej ...

Nanoparticles make it easier to turn light into solvated electrons

Illuminating study advances ‘green’ reducing agents

20-Jan-2023

There are many ways to initiate chemical reactions in liquids, but placing free electrons directly into water, ammonia and other liquid solutions is especially attractive for green chemistry becausesolvated electrons are inherently clean, leaving behind no side products after they react. In ...
