New system for widespread availability of green hydrogen

Hydrogen researchers and Graz-based start-up developed a cost-effective process for the decentralised production of high-purity hydrogen

27-May-2020

As an alternative propulsion technology in the transport sector, hydrogen is playing an important role in the energy transition. However, it is not yet suitable for mass production. Hydrogen is mainly produced centrally from fossil resources and compressed or liquefied in an expensive and ...

Scientists finally crack nature's most common chemical bond

Holy grail of synthesis: Carbon-hydrogen bonds in hydrocarbon molecules have resisted functionalization until now

25-May-2020

The most common chemical bond in the living world -- that between carbon and hydrogen -- has long resisted attempts by chemists to crack it open, thwarting efforts to add new bells and whistles to old carbon-based molecules. Now, after nearly 25 years of work by chemists at the University of ...

Chemical recycling makes useful product from waste bioplastic

Chemical process can be used to break down real consumer plastics and produce green solvent

25-May-2020

A faster, more efficient way of recycling plant-based "bioplastics" has been developed by a team of scientists at the Universities of Birmingham and Bath. The team has shown how their chemical recycling method not only speeds up the process, it can also be converted into a new product - a ...

Breakthrough in research on production of 2D crystals with excellent optical properties

Flat crystals showing uniform parameters over the entire surface, including - most valuably - excellent optical properties

25-May-2020

For the first time, monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides with excellent optical properties were grown. A team of physicists from the University of Warsaw managed to overcome the technical difficulties faced by industry and scientists from around the world, namely the very limited size, ...
