Breaking the rules of chemistry unlocks new reaction

Scientists have broken the rules of enzyme engineering to unlock a new method for creating chemical reactions that could unlock a wide range of new applications - from creating new drugs to food production


In their paper published in Nature Catalysis, Professor Francesca Paradisi and Dr. Martina Contente of the University of Nottingham and the University of Bern show a new method to produce chemical molecules more efficiently through a new one step reaction in the enzyme. Professor Paradis is ...


New composite material that can cool itself down under extreme temperatures


A cutting-edge material, inspired by nature, that can regulate its own temperature and could equally be used to treat burns and help space capsules withstand atmospheric forces is under development at the University of Nottingham. "A major challenge in material science is to work out how to ...

Less drain on freshwater supplies with seawater fuel discovery


Researchers have found that seawater can replace freshwater to produce the sustainable fuel Bioethanol, reducing the need to drain precious resources. The study was carried out by researchers at the University of Nottingham. Their results showed that seawater can be used in Bioethanol production ...


Salt is key ingredient for cheaper and more efficient batteries


A new design of rechargeable battery, created using salt, could lead the way for greener energy. Researchers at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) have joined forces with a specialist group at the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences on designs ...

Self-sustaining loop of chemical reactions could revolutionize drug production


Experts from the University of Nottingham have created a self-sustaining circuit of reactions which is a greener and more efficient method of chemical production. Drs Francesca Paradisi and Martina Contente of the University of Nottingham produce chemicals more efficiently through a looped set of ...


Speed up your NMR data acquisition by using DTPA-chelated lanthanides as relaxation agents


There has been an increase in the popularity and practical application of hyperpolarization NMR/MRI. One way to achieve high levels of nuclear spin polarization is based on the notion that as the temperature is reduced (characterized by the spin-lattice relaxation time, T1), the equilibrium ...

New bacteria-resistant materials discovered


Using state-of-the-art technology scientists at The University of Nottingham have discovered a new class of polymers that are resistant to bacterial attachment. These new materials could lead to a significant reduction in hospital infections and medical device failures.Medical device associated ...


Potential carbon capture role for new CO2-absorbing material


A novel porous material that has unique carbon dioxide retention properties has been developed through research led by the University of Nottingham. The findings, published in Nature Materials, form part of ongoing efforts to develop new materials for gas storage applications and could have an ...


Smashing fluids: The physics of flow


The new findings will be highly useful to the manufacturing industry because the processing and dispensing of everyday products like toothpaste, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs depends on an understanding of the physical properties and behaviours of these fluids. The research just ...


World-first to provide building blocks for new nano devices


Scientists at The University of Nottingham have made a major breakthrough that could help shape the future of nanotechnology, by demonstrating for the first time that 3-D molecular structures can be built on a surface. The discovery could prove a significant step forward towards the development ...
