Artificial intelligence to help protect bees from pesticides

Researchers develop computer model to predict whether a pesticide will harm bees


Researchers in the Oregon State University College of Engineering have harnessed the power of artificial intelligence to help protect bees from pesticides. Cory Simon, assistant professor of chemical engineering, andXiaoli Fern, associate professor of computer science, led the project, which ...

New clues help explain why PFAS chemicals resist remediation

Work suggests new avenues for cleaning up these 'forever chemicals'


The synthetic chemicals known as PFAS, short for perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are found in soil and groundwater where they have accumulated, posing risks to human health ranging from respiratory problems to cancer. New research from the University of Houston and Oregon State ...

Producing hydrogen from water

Researchers take key step toward cleaner, more sustainable production of hydrogen


Efficiently mass-producing hydrogen from water is closer to becoming a reality thanks to Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers and collaborators at Cornell University and the Argonne National Laboratory. The scientists used advanced experimental tools to forge a clearer ...

Key advance toward production of important biofuel

MOF can efficiently separate biobutanol from the fermentation broth


An international research collaboration has taken an important step toward the commercially viable manufacture of biobutanol, an alcohol whose strong potential as a fuel for gasoline-powered engines could pave the path away from fossil fuels. The key breakthrough is the development of a new metal ...

A new 'cool' blue

Inexpensive, durable and more environmentally friendly


Throughout history, people have sought vibrant blue pigments. The Egyptians and Babylonians used lapis lazuli 6,000 years ago. In 1802, a French chemist synthesized cobalt blue. More recently, in 2009 scientists discovered YInMn Blue, otherwise known as "Oregon Blue." But most of these pigments ...


Even low concentrations of silver can foil wastewater treatment


Research at Oregon State University has shed new light how an increasingly common consumer product component - silver nanoparticles - can potentially interfere with the treatment of wastewater. The findings suggest conventional toxicity testing methods for silver concentrations at treatment ...


Alloying materials of different structures offers new tool for controlling properties


New research into the largely unstudied area of heterostructural alloys could lead to greater materials control and in turn better semiconductors, advances in nanotechnology for pharmaceuticals and improved metallic glasses for industrial applications. Heterostructural alloys are blends of ...

New approach improves ability to predict metals' reactions with water


The wide reach of corrosion, a multitrillion-dollar global problem, may someday be narrowed considerably thanks to a new, better approach to predict how metals react with water. Researchers at Oregon State University and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new computational ...


New hydronium-ion battery presents opportunity for more sustainable energy storage


A new type of battery developed by scientists at Oregon State University shows promise for sustainable, high-power energy storage. It's the world's first battery to use only hydronium ions as the charge carrier. The new battery provides an additional option for researchers, particularly in the ...


Technique could lead to safer, more efficient uranium extraction


The separation of uranium, a key part of the nuclear fuel cycle, could potentially be done more safely and efficiently through a new technique developed by chemistry researchers at Oregon State University. The technique uses soap-like chemicals known as surfactants to extract uranium from an ...
