Brazilian scientists reveal method of converting methane gas into liquid methanol

The conversion took place under ambient temperature and pressure conditions, which could enable methane, a potent greenhouse gas, to be used to produce fuel

08-Aug-2022

A group of researchers has succeeded in converting methane into methanol using light and dispersed transition metals such as copper in a process known as photo-oxidation. The reaction was the best obtained to date for conversion of methane gas into liquid fuel under ambient conditions of ...

Edible, biodegradable, anti-microbial plastic boasts higher tensile strength than petroleum-based plastic

The material is produced from gelatin, clay and a nanoemulsion of black pepper essential oil

11-Mar-2022

Disposal of food packaging is a major cause of environmental pollution worldwide. More than 350 million metric tons of plastic are produced every year, and 85% of the garbage dumped in the oceans is plastic, according to estimates. Brazil is the fourth-largest producer, accounting for some 11 ...

A combination of agrochemicals shortens the life of bees

A nonlethal dose of insecticide clothianidin can reduce honeybees' life span by half

03-Jun-2019

A new study by Brazilian biologists suggests that the effect of pesticides on bees could be worse than previously thought. Even when used at a level considered nonlethal, an insecticide curtailed the lives of bees by up to 50%. The researchers also found that a fungicide deemed safe for bees ...

Artificial magnetic field produces exotic behavior in graphene sheets

04-Dec-2018

A simple sheet of graphene has noteworthy properties due to a quantum phenomenon in its electron structure named Dirac cones in honor of British theoretical physicist Paul Dirac (1902-1984), who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1933. The system becomes even more interesting if it ...

Thermoelectric nanodevice based on Majorana fermions proposed

10-Apr-2018

In March 1938, the young Italian physicist Ettore Majorana disappeared mysteriously, leaving his country's scientific community shaken. The episode remains unexplained, despite Leonardo Scascia's attempt to unravel the enigma in his book The Disappearance of Majorana (1975). Majorana, whom Enrico ...

Model predicts scenarios for energy generation using nuclear fusion

31-Jan-2018

Nuclear fusion, for the controlled and regular generation of electric power by converting hydrogen into helium and reproducing on a small scale what happens in our Sun (as well as other stars), is one of the foremost technological promises for the decades ahead. Designed to reach parameters ...
