An all-organic proton battery energized for sustainable energy storage

Charged in a matter of seconds


Sustainable energy storage is in great demand. Researchers at Uppsala University have therefore developed an all-organic proton battery that can be charged in a matter of seconds. The battery can be charged and discharged over 500 times without any significant loss of capacity. The researchers ...

Artificial enzymes convert solar energy into hydrogen gas


In a new scientific article, researchers at Uppsala University describe how, using a completely new method, they have synthesised an artificial enzyme that functions in the metabolism of living cells. These enzymes can utilize the cell's own energy, and thereby enable hydrogen gas to be produced ...


World speed record for polymer simulations shattered by over a hundred-fold


From a humble plastic bag to ultra-light airplane wings - polymers are everywhere. These molecules are long chains of atoms that are chemically joined to play many roles that we all love (organic photovoltaics) and hate (indestructible plastic pollution). Polymers are useful in liquid form as ...


Magnetic order in a two-dimensional molecular chessboard


Achieving magnetic order in low-dimensional systems consisting of only one or two dimensions has been a research goal for some time. In a new study Uppsala researchers show that magnetic order can be created in a two-dimensional chessboard lattice consisting of organometallic molecules that are ...

Efficient low-cost method for hydrogenation of graphene with visible light


An environmentally friendly, efficient and low-cost method for hydrogenation of graphene with visible light has been developed by researchers at Uppsala University and AstraZeneca Gothenburg, Sweden. The study shows that the two-dimensional and atom-thin carbon material graphene reacts with ...


Ultrafast uncoupled magnetism in atoms

A new step towards computers of the future


Future computers will require a magnetic material which can be manipulated ultra-rapidly by breaking the strong magnetic coupling. A study in which Swedish and German scientists demonstrate that even the strongest magnetic coupling may be broken within picoseconds. This will open up an exciting ...


Self-doping may be the key to superconductivity in room temperature


Swedish materials researchers at Linköping and Uppsala University and Chalmers University of Technology, in collaboration with researchers at the Swiss Synchrotron Light Source (SLS) in Switzerland investigated the superconductor YBa2Cu3O7-x (abbreviated YBCO) using advanced X-ray ...


Nature's chemical diversity reflected in Swedish lakes


It's not only the biology of lakes that varies with the climate and other environmental factors, it's also their chemistry. More knowledge about this is needed to understand the ecology of lakes and their role in the carbon cycle and the climate. Today an international research group led by ...

Graphene nanoscrolls are formed by decoration of magnetic nanoparticles


Researchers at Umeå University, together with researchers at Uppsala University and Stockholm University, show in a new study how nitrogen doped graphene can be rolled into perfect Archimedean nano scrolls by adhering magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of the graphene sheets. The ...


Uppsala University and Picosun strengthen their collaboration on advanced ALD research of emerging electronics


Picosun Oy and Uppsala University solidify their cooperation in advanced Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) research with already second PICOSUN™ ALD tool delivered to Uppsala University’s Ångström Laboratory. Picosun and Uppsala University have been close partners since 2009 when the first PICOSUN™ ...
