Can diamonds originate methane?

“It is well known that the decomposition of methane may bring to diamond formation. What was less known until now is that the opposite process is also possible”

14-Dec-2021

Turning one of the world's finest gems - diamonds – into one of the worst greenhouse gases – methane - does not seem a great idea. Yet this happened through the work of a group of researchers from the Universities of Bologna and Edinburgh (UK), the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique ...

Towards next-generation molecule-based magnets

New lightweight molecule-based magnet, produced at low temperatures, and exhibiting unprecedented magnetic properties

03-Nov-2020

Magnets are to be found everywhere in our daily lives, whether in satellites, telephones or on fridge doors. However, they are made up of heavy inorganic materials whose component elements are, in some cases, of limited availability. Now, researchers from the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and ...

When a porous solid retains its properties in liquid form

12-Oct-2017

Known for their exceptional porosity that enables the trapping or transport of molecules, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) take the form of a powder, which makes them difficult to format. For the first time, an international team led by scientists from the Institut de recherche de Chimie Paris, ...

When enzymes rival platinum

05-Sep-2017

A fuel cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy via hydrogen combustion. Though it is considered to be a clean technology - because it does not emit greenhouse gases - fuel cells do use costly rare metal catalysts1, such as platinum, to oxidize hydrogen and reduce oxygen. In recent ...
