Scientists unveil least costly carbon capture system to date

New system efficiently captures CO₂ and converts it into one of the world’s most widely used chemicals

27-Jan-2023

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 ...

Novel method for controlling chemical reactions discovered

Organic chemist develop new catalyst to selectively activate carbon-hydrogen bonds

26-Jan-2023

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 ...

Bacteria really eat plastic

Laboratory experiment shows that bacteria really eat and digest plastic

26-Jan-2023

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 mobile breakthrough for water environment monitoring

A novel colorimetric multi-channel sensor on cell phone platform

26-Jan-2023

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 ...

Researchers develop new method for X-ray colour imaging

Colour images from the shadow of a sample

25-Jan-2023

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 ...

Space Telescope unveils the dark side of pre-stellar ice chemistry

Chameleon I hides a wealth of frozen molecules

25-Jan-2023

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 ...

Farewell to ‘forever’ – Destroying PFAS by grinding it up with a new additive

A new way to tackle 'forever chemicals'

25-Jan-2023

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 ...

New report reveals “large gap” in carbon dioxide removal needed

“CDR is not something we could do, but something we absolutely have to do to reach the Paris Agreement temperature goal”

24-Jan-2023

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” ...
