The power of going small: Copper oxide subnanoparticle catalysts prove most superior

10-Feb-2020

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have shown that copper oxide particles on the sub-nanoscale are more powerful catalysts than those on the nanoscale. These subnanoparticles can also catalyze the oxidation reactions of aromatic hydrocarbons far more effectively than catalysts currently ...

ELSI scientists discover new chemistry that may help explain the origins of cellular life

Chemists find simplest organic molecules can self-assemble to give cell-like structures under early Earth conditions

25-Jul-2019

Before life began on Earth, the environment likely contained a massive number of chemicals that reacted with each other more or less randomly, and it is unclear how things as complex as cells could have emerged from such chemical chaos. Now, a team led by Tony Z. Jia of the Earth-Life Science ...
