Spectroscopically Controlled Quantum Bits

A molecular multi-qubit model system for quantum computing

17-Oct-2022

Molecules could make useful systems for quantum computers, but they must contain individually addressable, interacting quantum bit centers. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a team of researchers has now presented a molecular model with three different, coupled qubit centers. As each center is ...

How to tell if that plastic bottle or bag has recycled material in it

27-Sep-2022

To encourage more recycling, the U.K. taxes single-use plastic products containing less than 30% recycled material. But aside from a manufacturer’s word, there isn’t an easy way to verify this composition. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering have developed a ...

Graphene as 'the philosopher’s stone’: turning waste into gold

"This apparent magic is essentially a simple electrochemical process"

25-Aug-2022

Throughout history, alchemists believed in the existence of the philosopher’s stone: a substance that could turn cheap substances into precious gold. Now scientists from The University of Manchester, Tsinghua University in China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have shown that graphene can be ...

A Rack for Ammonia

Metal-organic framework as a robust material for the uptake and storage of ammonia at densities that come close to that of the liquefied gas

09-Oct-2018

Handling, storing, and shipping of ammonia requires costly equipment and special precautions because of its inherent corrosiveness and toxicity. Scientists in Manchester, UK, have found that a metal–organic framework, MFM-300(Al), a porous solid, not only effectively filters harmful nitrogen ...
