Powerful electrochemical process destroys water contaminants, such as pesticides
A team of engineers may be one step closer to cleaning up heavily contaminated industrial wastewater streams. Researchers from the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering developed an electrochemical oxidation process with the aim of cleaning up complex wastewater that contained a toxic ...
Kiel physics team observed extremely fast electronic changes in real time in a special material class
In physics, they are currently the subject of intensive research; in electronics, they could enable completely new functions. So-called topological materials are characterised by special electronic properties, which are also very robust against external perturbations. This material group also ...
Pollutant-destroying properties surprise Rice engineer: ‘It’s not supposed to work’
Rice University chemical engineers found an efficient catalyst for destroying PFAS "forever" chemicals where they least expected. "It was the control," said Rice Professor Michael Wong, referring to the part of a scientific experiment where researchers don't expect surprises. The control group is ...
Proton-conducting materials provide a number of advantages
Over the past few years, fuel cells have become a focal point of research in eco-friendly technology because of their superior abilities to store and produce renewable energy and clean fuel. A typical type of fuel cell gaining ground is the proton-conducting fuel cell, which is primarily made of ...
A mixture of liquid and solid state batteries
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have built a new type of battery that combines the many benefits of existing options while eliminating their key shortcomings and saving energy. Most batteries are composed of either solid-state electrodes, ...
Improved methods for coupling reactions with light by targeted control of the catalyst activity
A team of researchers reports in the journal Nature Catalysis that sustainable carbon-nitrogen cross-couplings can be performed using simple nickel salts, carbon nitrides and light. The chemists study the use of cost-effective and reproducible semiconductors as photocatalysts in coupling ...
Using a new approach, they were able to study and improve the water-dissociation reaction that rips apart water molecules in membrane-based electrochemical reactors
University of Oregon chemists have made substantial gains in enhancing the catalytic water dissociation reaction in electrochemical reactors, called bipolar membrane electrolyzers, to more efficiently rip apart water molecules into positively charged protons and negatively charged hydroxide ...
New ways to modify the structure of aluminium alloys for improving their performance
Currently, low-alloy aluminium is widely used in electrical engineering and machine building. At the same time, it should be noted that modern electrical engineering places very high and in some cases mutually exclusive requirements to aluminium alloys. For example, conductive aluminium alloys ...
"Significant breakthrough" simplifies processing of gaseous, low-weight hydrocarbons in industry
In industry, gaseous hydrocarbons, such as ethane and methane, are frequently changed into molecules that can act as building blocks for pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. Typically, these processes take place at high temperatures and pressures, and can also produce large amounts of pollutants. ...
New platform for rapid chiral analysis
Researchers from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently developed a new platform for rapid chiral analysis, producing chromatogram-like output without the need for separation. The study was published in Cell Reports Physical Science. Molecules not ...
