Titanium breaks record of Tc for element superconductors
Element superconductors are important either for superconducting mechanism studies or for potential applications because of the single composition. However element superconductor (SC) usually show very low transition temperature (Tc) typically below 10K. Recently Prof. Changqing Jin’s team at ...
"This apparent magic is essentially a simple electrochemical process"
Throughout history, alchemists believed in the existence of the philosopher’s stone: a substance that could turn cheap substances into precious gold. Now scientists from The University of Manchester, Tsinghua University in China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have shown that graphene can be ...
In the context of global concern about climate change and greenhouse gas control, a new technology for CO2 capture, utilization, and storage has attracted broad attention. Ionic liquids, composed of only cations and anions, are considered a new type of CO2 adsorbent due to their ultralow vapor ...
The long-standing challenges to the practical implementation of rechargeable zinc-air batteries (ZABs) are the electrochemical irreversibility of the Zn anode and degradation of the air cathodes in alkaline electrolyte, which eventually results in poor cycle life and low cell voltage. To improve ...
Upcycling CO₂ via electrochemical and metabolic engineering
Artificial upcycling of carbon dioxide (CO2) into value-added products in a sustainable manner represents an opportunity to tackle environmental issues and realize a circular economy. However, compared with facilely available C1/C2 products, efficient and sustainable synthesis of energy-rich ...
Scientists explore a genetic sensor of blue light to double oil productivity in industrial microalgae
Microalgae, algae that cannot be seen by the naked eye, absorb carbon dioxide and produce oils that can be used as biofuels. These biofuels, which can be carbon negative, offer promise as an alternative to conventional fossil fuels. However, the biological processes that allow these microalgae to ...
Findings may help to address the safety issues of next-generation batteries
Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries offer great potential for use in energy storage systems because of their large energy capacity. However, safety problems related to their thermal behavior continue to be a concern for scientists. Now, a research team led by researchers from the Qingdao Institute of ...
Relief for Oceans and Landfills?
More than eight million tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year—a serious danger for the environment and health. Biodegradable bioplastics could provide an alternative. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a research team has now introduced a new method for the production of protein-based ...
Solution to a "notorious issue" provided
Lithium-ion batteries are relatively safe, long-lasting, fast charging and better for the environment than non-rechargeable batteries–right? Not quite. The rocking-chair mechanism that allows for commercial power storage generally uses rare earth elements, such as nickel and cobalt. Researchers ...
A research team led by Prof. ZHANG Guangjin from the Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has fabricated a novel InOOH electrocatalyst with unique frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) for efficient urea synthesis at ambient conditions. The industrial process of ...
