Rather than disposing of batteries after two or three years, we could have recyclable batteries that last for up to nine years
Mobile phone batteries with a lifetime up to three times longer than today’s technology could be a reality thanks to an innovation led by engineers at RMIT University. Rather than disposing of batteries after two or three years, we could have recyclable batteries that last for up to nine years, ...
Accurately predict - without the need for quantum chemical computations
Researchers used a chemical synthesis robot and computationally cost effective A.I. model to successfully predict and validate highly selective catalysts. Artificial intelligence (A.I.) has made headlines recently with the advent of ChatGPT's language processing capabilities. Creating a similarly ...
The new type of ice is closer to liquid water than any other known ice, and could rewrite our understanding of water and its many anomalies
Researchers at UCL and the University of Cambridge have discovered a new type of ice that more closely resembles liquid water than any other known ices and that may rewrite our understanding of water and its many anomalies. The newly discovered ice is amorphous - that is, its molecules are in a ...
University of Liverpool chemist receives Royal Society Professorship to extend intelligence of first fully autonomous mobile chemical robot
Professor Andrew Cooper from the University of Liverpool’s Department of Chemistry has been awarded a prestigiousRoyal Society Research Professorship to further develop the mobile robotic chemist to fast forward advances in materials science. Royal Society Research Professorships provide ...
First world-scale plant based upon energy efficient ODC technology
Covestro has successfully started up a new world-scale facility for the production of chlorine in Tarragona, Spain. It is the first world-scale production plant for chlorine based upon the highly innovative and energy efficient ODC (oxygen depolarized cathode) technology invented by Covestro and ...
Industry giants will work to convert industrial waste gases to create more sustainable chemicals for consumer products
Key industrial players representing a £73 billion UK sector have signed a collaboration agreement to launch ‘Flue2Chem’ – a collaborative programme to transform the sustainability of the UK’s consumer products industry and reduce green-house gas emissions on a demonstration scale. SCI (Society of ...
Specific substances for certain parts of the body
A international team of researchers from LMU and University of Tübingen is unveiling the secrets of ancient Egyptian embalming. Vessels from a workshop in Saqqara are providing new insights into the substances that were used to preserve human bodies. Exactly 100 years ago, the tomb of Tutankhamun ...
Chemically functionalized polymer nanoparticles reduce friction on steel surfaces
Mineral oil lubricants protect engine parts from wear, and this effect is enhanced by adding polymer nanoparticles to the lubricating oil. A UK team has now discovered that epoxy functionalization of these nanoparticles further promotes friction reduction on metal surfaces. As the team reports in ...
The findings open up the possibility of measuring chemical or biological contaminants in water droplets quickly and easily
Shining light on a water droplet creates effects analogous to what happens in an atom. This can help us understand how atoms work, write researchers from the University of Gothenburg in a new journal article. If you whisper by the wall in the dome of St Paul's Cathedral in London, you'll discover ...
Production of thermoplastic fiber composites under the Maezio® brand to be discontinued
As part of its ongoing, Group-wide portfolio optimization efforts, in the future Covestro will increasingly focus the Engineering Plastics business entity on its core business. As a result, the Maezio® product line with highly specialized fiber-reinforced composites and the associated production ...
