Porous Liquids Allow for Efficient Gas Separation

New material opens up the possibility of saving up to 80 percent of energy when separating raw materials for the plastics industry

14-Aug-2020

Jointly with cooperation partners, a researcher of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has developed “porous liquids”: Nanoparticles, that are able to separate gas molecules of different sizes from each other, float – finely distributed – in a solvent. This is because the particles have empty ...

From Greenhouse Gas to a High-tech Resource

26-Mar-2020

At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the NECOC research project is aimed at building a unique test facility for active reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). The world’s first container-scale facility of this type is to convert CO2 contained in ambient air into highly pure carbon ...

Producing Graphene from Carbon Dioxide

Direct Synthesis of Technological Material Graphene from Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide

10-Jul-2019

The general public knows the chemical compound of carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere and because of its global-warming effect. However, carbon dioxide can also be a useful raw material for chemical reactions. A working group at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has now ...

Crowd Oil – Fuels From Air-conditioning Systems

Researchers Want to Use Air-conditioning and Ventilation Systems for Decentralized Production of Carbon-neutral Synthetic Fuels

07-May-2019

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Toronto have proposed a method enabling air conditioning and ventilation systems to produce synthetic fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water from the ambient air. Compact plants are to separate CO2 from the ...

Lithium and Cobalt might not suffice

With the increased significance of lithium-ion batteries, the pressure on the availabiltity of relevant ressources rises

16-Mar-2018

Lithium and cobalt are fundamental components of present lithium-ion batteries. Analysis by researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) shows that the availability of both elements could become seriously critical. Cobalt-free battery ...

Scientists observe nanowires as they grow

X-ray experiments reveal exact details of self-catalysed growth for the first time

12-Feb-2018

At DESY's X-ray source PETRA III, scientists have followed the growth of tiny wires of gallium arsenide live. Their observations reveal exact details of the growth process responsible for the evolving shape and crystal structure of the crystalline nanowires. The findings also provide new ...

Quantum computing with molecules for a quicker search of unsorted databases

Grover's quantum algorithm implemented - superposition manipulated and read out electrically

15-Nov-2017

Scrapbooks or social networks are collections of mostly unsorted data. The search for single elements in very large data volumes, i.e. for the needle in the data haystack, is extremely complex for classical computers. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now quantum ...
