A better way to create compounds for pharmaceuticals, other chemicals

Study uses new process to make complex molecules


What do gunpowder, penicillin and Teflon all have in common? They were inventions that took the world by storm, but they were all created by complete accident. In a new study published in the journal Science, researchers used electricity to develop a tool that may make it easier and cheaper to ...

A new way to generate electricity from waste heat: using an antiferromagnet for solid devices

Giant thermoelectric effect in an antiferromagnet discovered


Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Germany, together with collaborators at the Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati, have discovered, for the first time, a giant thermoelectric effect in an antiferromagnet. The study published in ...

Chemists find way to create "the building blocks of life"

Turning alcohol into key ingredients for new medicines


Chemists have found a way to turn alcohol into amino acids, the building blocks of life. In a study published in the journal Nature Chemistry, researchers explained the transformation, which involves selectively identifying and replacing molecular bonds with unprecedented precision. The finding ...

A dust-up: Microbes interact with harmful chemicals in dust

Microbes in household dust can break down harmful chemicals


The dust that settles throughout our homes and offices almost always contains bits of chemicals that can cause problems for the human endocrine system, scientists say. But a new study indicates that the microbes we track into buildings--the microscopic bacteria and other microorganisms that ...

A new way to create molecules for drug development

Innovative process gives more control over free radicals


Chemists at The Ohio State University have developed a new and improved way to generate molecules that can enable the design of new types of synthetic drugs. Researchers say this new method of forming reactive intermediates called ketyl radicals offers scientists a way to use catalysts to convert ...

You won't find ice cubes like this in your freezer

How to make 'squarest' ice crystals ever


An international team of scientists has set a new record for creating ice crystals that have a near-perfect cubic arrangement of water molecules--a form of ice that may exist in the coldest high-altitude clouds but is extremely hard to make on Earth. The ability to make and study cubic ice in the ...

Turning food waste into tires


Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered that food waste can partially replace the petroleum-based filler that has been used in manufacturing tires for more than a century. In tests, rubber made with the new fillers exceeds industrial standards for performance, which may ...


Discovery could lead to jet engines that run hotter - and cleaner


Researchers here have made a discovery in materials science that sounds like something from the old Saturday morning cartoon Super Friends: They've found a way to deactivate "nano twins" to improve the high-temperature properties of superalloys that are used in jet engines. The advance could ...

Devices that convert heat into electricity

One step closer to reality


The same researchers who pioneered the use of a quantum mechanical effect to convert heat into electricity have figured out how to make their technique work in a form more suitable to industry. In Nature Communications, engineers from The Ohio State University describe how they used magnetism on ...

A shampoo bottle that empties completely - every last drop


It's one of life's little annoyances: that last bit of shampoo that won't quite pour out of the bottle. Or the last bit of hand soap, or dish soap, or laundry detergent. Now researchers at The Ohio State University have found a way to create the perfect texture inside plastic bottles to let soap ...
