Scientists solve mystery about catalysis for green production of methanol from carbon dioxide

Live view into methanol synthesis

10-May-2022

An international research team led by researchers of Stockholm University has for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. The results – obtained at DESY´s brilliant light source PETRAIII – are published in the scientific ...

Harmful boomerang: PFAS pollution in ocean comes back to land

“The common belief was that PFAS would eventually wash off into the oceans where they would stay to be diluted over the timescale of decades”

17-Dec-2021

Many of the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that end up in the ocean boomerang back to shore after they are re-emitted into air with the crashing of waves, according to a study by researchers at Stockholm University published inEnvironmental Science & Technology. The findings suggest ...

New lignin based material to replace fossil plastics and adhesives

"We were amazed by the performance of the new materials"

26-Nov-2021

Researchers at Stockholm University have developed a resource-efficient method to produce new lignin-based materials that can be thermally reprocessed and used to substitute thermosetting resins and adhesives. Modern societies need to find alternatives to materials that are derived from fossil ...

New NiMH batteries perform better when made from recycled old NiMH batteries

Recycling of rechargeable hydride batteries may be easier with a new method

03-Jun-2020

A new method for recycling old batteries can provide better performing and cheaper rechargeable hydride batteries (NiMH) as shown in a new study by researchers at Stockholm University. "The new method allows the upcycled material to be used directly in new battery production," says Dag Noréus, ...

Dark matter does not contain certain axion-like particles

26-Apr-2016

Researchers at Stockholm University are getting closer to corner light dark-matter particle models. Observations can rule out some axion-like particles in the quest for the content of dark matter. Physicists are still struggling with the conundrum of identifying more than 80 percent of the matter ...

Toxins remain in your clothes

27-Oct-2015

In a new thesis 60 garments from Swedish and international clothing chains have been tested. An initial analysis found thousands of chemicals in the clothes and around a hundred chemicals were preliminary identified. Several of the substances were not on the producers' lists and are suspected to ...

New crystal captures carbon from humid gas

19-Oct-2015

A new material with micropores might be a way to fight climate change. Scientists have created crystals that capture carbon dioxide much more efficiently than previously known materials, even in the presence of water. The research was recently published in a report in the scientific journal ...

New family of chemical structures can effectively remove CO2 from gas mixtures

20-Jul-2015

A newly discovered family of chemical structures, published in Nature, could increase the value of biogas and natural gas that contains carbon dioxide. The new chemical structures, known as zeolites, have been created by an international team of researchers including Professor Xiaodong Zou and ...

X-ray laser reveals chemical reaction

18-Mar-2013

What happens when a chemical bond is broken? That question was recently answered with the help of a so-called free electron x-ray laser, which makes it possible to follow in real time how bindings in a molecule are changed and broken. The study, published in Science, found, among other things, ...
