Production of fine chemicals in remote locations on Earth, and possibly even on Mars - also facade could make chemicals
Professor Timothy Noël and co-workers in the Flow Chemistry group of the University of Amsterdam's Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences have developed a fully operational standalone solar-powered mini-reactor which offers the potential for the production of fine chemicals in remote ...
Precise Measurements are the Molecular Lens to Seeing Chemistry
One can easily see with the naked eye that leaving an old nail out in the rain causes rust. What does require the keen eyes and sensitive nose of microscopy and spectroscopy is observing how iron corrodes and forms new minerals, especially in water with a pinch of sodium and calcium. Thanks to a ...
New research demonstrates great promise of all-inorganic perovskite solar cells for improving the efficiencies of solar cells
Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have already demonstrated very high photovoltaic efficiencies of greater than 25%. The prevailing wisdom in the field is that the organic (carbon- and hydrogen-containing) molecules in the material are crucial to achieving this impressive performance because ...
One-dimensional magnetic chains assembled from molecules
Led by scientists at Empa and the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, an international team of researchers from Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, and Spain have succeeded in building carbon-based quantum spin chains, where they captured the emergence of one of the cornerstone models of ...
Liquid nitrogen quenching introduces tensile-strain on the surface of oxide support, stabilizing ultra-high loading of single metal atom sites
While hydrogen is widely suggested as an alternative fuel with zero carbon emission, the majority of commercial hydrogen fuel production is obtained from the refining of fossils fuels. The limited reservoir of fossils fuels and their negative impact on the environment has encouraged researchers ...
Chemists’ dye method holds promise for long-term data storage — thousands of years or more: Start-up is pursuing opportunities for partnerships
In the digital age, every byte of data needs to go somewhere — and preferably stay there a long time. That last part is a major problem when it comes to data-storage systems, which typically last less than 20 years. A group of Harvard chemists is trying to solve the issue with an innovation that ...
New insights from the world of chemical senses
Who doesn't like the smell of caramel? However, the olfactory receptor that contributes decisively to this sensory impression was unknown until now. Researchers at the Leibniz Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich (LSB) have now solved the mystery of its ...
Joint large-volume hydrogen projects to be realised
International industrial services provider Bilfinger and LOHC market pioneer Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies are entering into a strategic partnership and pooling their complementary expertise. The companies aim to make green hydrogen commercially available on a large scale in Europe by offering a ...
New crystal forms control mosquitoes and fruit flies up to nine times faster, allowing less to be used
Scientists have developed seven crystal forms of imidacloprid - one of the world’s most widely used insecticides - in an effort to sharply reduce its environmental impact, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The new forms work up to nine times faster ...
Combined with new translucent material, 3D-printing of entire optical systems possibl
Highly precise 3D-structures in black can now be printed using a 2 Photon-Polymerization (2PP) 3D-printing process. This seemed for a long time impossible as non-transmissive (black) materials greatly reduce the polymerization efficiency of the printing process. Now the 2PP-specialist UpNano GmbH ...
