With the new method, carbon dioxide is transformed into useful porous complexes at room temperature and without high pressure
Researchers in Japan have found an energy-efficient way to convert the chief greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) into useful chemicals. Using the method, CO2 is transformed into structures called metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), suggesting a new and simpler route to dispose of the greenhouse ...
A design concept changes how materials separate gaseous mixtures
A more energy-efficient method improves how an industrial gas is purified by reversing the traditional process. The concept was developed and successfully tested by scientists at Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) in Japan and colleagues.Acetylene is a gas ...
Kyoto University simultaneously synthesizes dicarboxylic acids and hydrogen from diols
Every year, the chemical industry makes trillions of dollars synthesizing the countless chemical compounds we use every day. From pharmaceuticals for keeping you healthy to polyester woven into your shirt, industrial processes turn simple chemicals into complex, valuable compounds. Researchers in ...
Kyoto scientists announce a 'nuclear' periodic table
A staple in every science classroom is the periodic table of elements, and for many it is their first introduction to the vast mysteries of the natural world. Now physicists from Kyoto University have unveiled a new table that provides a different perspective on the building blocks of the ...
Towards Functional Glasses and Liquids
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous, crystalline materials that can trap compounds within their molecular cavities, giving them a wide range of applications in gas storage and separation, carbon capture, and in the catalysis of chemical reactions, to name a few. A new range of applications ...
The captured CO2 can be converted into useful organic materials
A new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules and efficiently convert them into useful organic materials has been developed by researchers at Kyoto University, along with colleagues at the University of Tokyo and Jiangsu Normal University in China. They describe the ...
Researchers at the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences at Kyoto University have made a popular type of dye-sensitized solar cell more efficient by adjusting and updating their structure. Published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), the team report a series of ...
Superflexible aerogels are highly efficient absorbents, thermal insulators, and pressure sensors
Airy, Airier, Aerogel. Until now, brittleness has limited the practical application of these delicate solids, which consist almost entirely of air-filled pores. This may now change: Japanese researchers have now introduced extremely elastic aerogels that are easy to process and can be produced at ...
New simulation helps scientists to decide what molecules best interact with each other
The approach was developed by Daniel Packwood of Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) and Taro Hitosugi of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. It involves connecting the chemical properties of molecules with the nanostructures that form as a result of their ...
Researchers synthesize helical nanographene
It's probably the smallest spring you've ever seen. Researchers from Kyoto University and Osaka University report for the first time in the Journal of the American Chemical Society the successful synthesis of hexa-peri-hexabenzohelicene, or 'helical nanographene'. These graphene constructs ...
