Scientists have successfully synthesized graphyne, which has been theorized for decades but never successfully produced
For over a decade, scientists have attempted to synthesize a new form of carbon called graphyne with limited success. That endeavor is now at an end, though, thanks to new research from the University of Colorado Boulder. Graphyne has long been of interest to scientists because of its ...
Researchers develop a new method to simultaneously measure flow and oxygen - Accurate and fast as never before
An international research team headed by the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, Aarhus University and the Science for Life Lab in Uppsala has developed tiny particles that measure the oxygen concentration in their surroundings. In this way, they can track fluid flow and ...
New method can for the first time distinguish their components in liquid form – and more effectively than ever before
Sugars, amino acids, drugs - chiral molecules are everywhere. Researchers in the AQUACHIRAL project at the Fritz-Haber-Institut have used X-rays to study hair-thin liquid jets of these molecules. Using a new method, they can now for the first time distinguish their components in liquid form – and ...
The use of sulfite and iodide under ultraviolet light can destroy PFAS in water in a few hours
Once dubbed “forever chemicals,” per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, might be in the market for a new nickname. That’s because adding iodide to a water treatment reactor that uses ultraviolet (UV) light and sulfite destroys up to 90% of carbon-fluorine atoms in PFAS forever chemicals in ...
Implications for battery technology
Some metals are in liquid form, the prime example being mercury. But there are also enormous quantities of liquid metal in the Earth’s core, where temperatures are so high that part of the iron is molten and undergoes complex flows. A team at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has ...
The technology forms a "missing link" for a wide variety of new application areas
In the framework of an EXIST Transfer of Research project, the HETEROMERGE team is developing a technology for automated material exchange for high-precision 3D printers toward market maturity, enabling multi-material printing even in the area of extremely small structure sizes of down to 100 ...
"Lithium is just like an unruly child”
For many people, battery-powered electronic devices like cell phones, laptops, and even electric vehicles, are now a necessity. However, these devices typically require charging at least once a day. Increasing the length of time between charges requires the development of batteries that can store ...
Glucose energy source for medicinal implants and sensors
Glucose is the most important energy source in the human body. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) now want to use the body's sugar as an energy source for medicinal implants. They have developed a glucose fuel cell which ...
Iodine, bromine and chlorine transferred from the ocean have increased the lifetime and greenhouse effect of this gas by 6% to 9% over the century.
An international team, led by researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), has performed climate-related chemistry simulations to assess the impact of oceanic emissions of halogenated compounds (iodine, bromine and chlorine) on methane in the atmosphere, the second most ...
Algae-powered computing: Scientists create reliable and renewable biological photovoltaic cell
Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year - and counting - using nothing but ambient light and water. Their system has potential as a reliable and renewable way to power small devices. The system, comparable in size to an AA ...
