Get zeolite research out of the dead end
Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and from ETH Zurich want to make so-called zeolites more efficient. Today, these compounds are already indispensable additives in the chemical industry and have been used as catalysts in oil refineries since the 1960s. Now, in the journal Nature ...
Promising way to to transform ethylene production into a greener industry
A research team from Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated a promising way to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene -- an important chemical used to produce plastics, solvents, cosmetics and other important products globally. The scientists developed ...
Headcount in Global Business Services will decline by up to 2,000 worldwide by end of 2022
BASF’s Global Business Services unit is being further developed. The division was established as of January 1, 2020, as part of the implementation of BASF’s corporate strategy. As of that date, around 8,400 employees worldwide transferred to Global Business Services and since then have been ...
Evonik and Siemens Energy put pilot plant into operations
Evonik and Siemens Energy commissioned a pilot plant sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) that uses carbon dioxide and water to produce chemicals. The necessary energy is supplied by electricity from renewable sources. The pilot plant is located in Marl, in ...
BASF invests into Pyrum as part of its ChemCycling project
BASF SE is to invest €16 million into Pyrum Innovations AG, a technology company specialized in the pyrolysis of waste tires, headquartered in Dillingen/Saar, Germany. With the investment, BASF will support the expansion of Pyrum’s pyrolysis plant in Dillingen and the further roll out of the ...
Pointed tips on aluminum 'octopods' increase catalytic reactivity
Points matter when designing nanoparticles that drive important chemical reactions using the power of light. Researchers at Rice University's Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) have long known that a nanoparticle's shape affects how it interacts with light, and their latest study shows how shape ...
An understanding of microscopic processes in perovskite solar cells can lead to increased efficiency
When the sun rises, a complex dance begins in perovskite solar cells - a type of solar cell that can supplement or replace existing silicon solar cells in the future: Electrons are supplied with energy by light and move. Where electrons move, they leave holes. At the same time, ions move around ...
Mapping the atomic motion during a molecular vibration
One of the long-standing goals of research on the light-induced dynamics of molecules is to observe time-dependent changes in the structure of molecules, which result from the absorption of light, as directly and unambiguously as possible. To this end, researchers have developed and applied a ...
Discovery means new class of materials and technologies
Australian researchers and their colleagues from Russia and China have shown that it is possible to study the magnetic properties of ultrathin materials directly, via a new microscopy technique that opens the door to the discovery of more two-dimensional (2D) magnetic materials, with all sorts of ...
New NMR methods for investigating paramagnetic complexes and supramolecular cages developed
Chemistry and structural biology use the standard methods of NMR spectroscopy (NMR = nuclear magnetic resonance) to examine the structure of molecules including large molecules like proteins in solution. The NMR active nuclei, such as hydrogen atoms, are excited using radiofrequency pulses in ...
