Finally, 3D-printed graphene aerogels for water treatment

Study shows how to make stable and large aerogels that remove heavy metals, organic solvents, organic dyes

16-Apr-2021

Graphene excels at removing contaminants from water, but it's not yet a commercially viable use of the wonder material. That could be changing. In a recent study, University at Buffalo engineers report a new process of 3D printing graphene aerogels that they say overcomes two key hurdles -- ...

Concrete without cement?

Simple chemistry will enhance the sustainability of concrete production

16-Apr-2021

Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science, a part of The University of Tokyo, have developed a new method of producing concrete without cement. They have directly bonded sand particles via a simple reaction in alcohol with a catalyst. This may help both to slash carbon emissions and to ...

The role of hydrophobic molecules in catalytic reactions

Optimising electrochemical processes is one of the challenges in developing technologies for renewable energies. New research findings could provide assistance here.

15-Apr-2021

Electrochemical processes could be used to convert CO2 into useful starting materials for industry. To optimise the processes, chemists are attempting to calculate in detail the energy costs caused by the various reaction partners and steps. Researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and ...

Abandoning the old ways: Progress in the low-cost electrochemical synthesis of ammonia

Scientists develop high performing electrocatalyst to synthesize ammonia in an effort to replace conventional eco-unfriendly methods

15-Apr-2021

Ammonia (NH3) is among the most important chemicals produced by humans and has a promising future in sustainable energy applications besides being used in fertilizer production. Unfortunately, so far, the only realistic way that exists to produce ammonia at an industrial scale is through the ...

The indestructible light beam

Researchers create special light waves that can penetrate even opaque materials as if the material was not even there

14-Apr-2021

Why is sugar not transparent? Because light that penetrates a piece of sugar is scattered, altered and deflected in a highly complicated way. However, as a research team from TU Wien (Vienna) and Utrecht University (Netherlands) has now been able to show, there is a class of very special light ...

A Molecule That Responds to Light

A novel Light-Spin Interface with Europium(III) Molecule Advances Development of Quantum Computers

14-Apr-2021

Light can be used to operate quantum information processing systems, e.g. quantum computers, quickly and efficiently. Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Chimie ParisTech/CNRS have now significantly advanced the development of molecule-based materials suitable for use as ...

Chemists create renewable plant-based polymers

What makes them different is that they can be easily recycled

14-Apr-2021

Researchers at the Laboratory of Cluster Catalysis at St Petersburg University have synthesised polymers from biomass. What makes them different is that they can be easily recycled. Today, our life is simply unthinkable without polymers. Plastics, fibres, films, paint and lacquer coating - they ...

Optically Active Defects Improve Carbon Nanotubes

Scientists achieve defect control with a new reaction pathway

13-Apr-2021

The properties of carbon-based nanomaterials can be altered and engineered through the deliberate introduction of certain structural “imperfections” or defects. The challenge, however, is to control the number and type of these defects. In the case of carbon nanotubes – microscopically small ...

On our way to "green" flow batteries

"Our goal is to develop environmentally friendly and highly efficient flow batteries based on iron"

13-Apr-2021

The long-term storage of energy generated from the sun and wind power is of central importance for the transition to green energy. Flow batteries (redox flow batteries) have already proven to be a form of energy storage with great economic and ecological potential. A new research project by Prof. ...

Glass injection molding

Researchers succeed in producing rapid, cost-effective and environmentally friendly material

13-Apr-2021

Glass is ubiquitous, from high-tech products in the fields of optics, telecommunications, chemistry and medicine to everyday objects such as bottles and windows. However, shaping glass is mainly based on processes such as melting, grinding or etching. These processes are decades old, ...
