Researchers find a new way to make use of Photoredox Catalysis
Scientists of the department of Homogeneous Catalysis have found a new elegant way to make use of photoredox catalysis. Researchers of the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung have expanded the molecular toolbox for efficient, targeted syntheses: To do so, they use a very special catalyst - ...
New system efficiently captures CO₂ and converts it into one of the world’s most widely used chemicals
The need for technology that can capture, remove and repurpose carbon dioxide grows stronger with every CO2molecule that reaches Earth’s atmosphere. To meet that need, scientists at the Department of Energy’sPacific Northwest National Laboratoryhave cleared a new milestone in their efforts to ...
Organic chemist develop new catalyst to selectively activate carbon-hydrogen bonds
Substituted aromatics are among the most important building blocks for organic compounds such as drugs, cropprotecting agents, and many materials. The function of the molecules is determined by the spatial arrangement of the different building blocks, the substitution pattern. A research team ...
Laboratory experiment shows that bacteria really eat and digest plastic
The bacterium Rhodococcus ruber eats and actually digests plastic. This has been shown in laboratory experiments by PhD student Maaike Goudriaan at Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ). Based on a model study with plastic in artificial seawater in the lab, Goudriaan calculated that ...
A novel colorimetric multi-channel sensor on cell phone platform
Reliable colorimetric analysis technologies have been widely praised for their highly sensitive and selective responses towards various contaminants in environmental monitoring. In principle, the chromogenic agent selectively reacts with the target in water samples, and the colored product ...
Innovative process could significantly reduce energy requirements for the production important chemical products
Evonik has launched the PlasCO2 project together with three partners. The aim is to use carbon dioxide (CO2) as a raw material in the production of C4 chemicals. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is funding the project with more than €1.8 million. PlasCO2 stands for ...
Colour images from the shadow of a sample
A research team at the University of Göttingen has developed a new method to produce X-ray images in colour. In the past, the only way to determine the chemical composition of a sample and the position of its components using X-ray fluorescence analysis was to focus the X-rays and scan the whole ...
Chameleon I hides a wealth of frozen molecules
The discovery of diverse ices in the darkest, coldest regions of a molecular cloud measured to date has been announced by an international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope. This result allows astronomers to examine the simple icy molecules that will be ...
A new way to tackle 'forever chemicals'
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are potentially harmful substances known as “forever chemicals” because they are so difficult to destroy. One emerging technique to degrade PFAS involves forcefully grinding them with metal balls in a moving container, but this technique can require ...
“CDR is not something we could do, but something we absolutely have to do to reach the Paris Agreement temperature goal”
Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere, alongside rapidly reducing emissions, is needed to reach the Paris Agreement temperature goal to limit warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius and pursue efforts to achieve 1.5°C. This is highlighted in the first “State of Carbon Dioxide Removal” ...
