Reducing Nitrogen with Boron and Beer

Chemists have achieved the conversion of nitrogen to ammonium at room temperature and low pressure using only light elements

16-Sep-2020

The industrial conversion of nitrogen to ammonium provides fertiliser for agriculture. Würzburg chemists have now achieved this conversion at room temperature and low pressure using only light elements. Humankind is reliant on the ammonium in synthetic fertiliser for food. However, producing ...

New boron-lanthanide nanostructure discovered

A newly discovered nanocluster has a geometry that “has not been observed in chemistry heretofore,” the researchers say

01-Jul-2020

The discovery of carbon nanostructures like two-dimensional graphene and soccer ball-shaped buckyballs helped to launch a nanotechnology revolution. In recent years, researchers from Brown University and elsewhere have shown that boron, carbon's neighbor on the periodic table, can make ...

Chemists allow boron atoms to migrate

Researchers present carbon-carbon couplings in which the semi-metal boron is retained

21-Jan-2020

Organic molecules with atoms of the semi-metal boron are among the most important building blocks for synthesis products that are needed to produce drugs and agricultural chemicals. However, during the usual chemical reactions used in industry, the valuable boron unit, which can replace another ...

How to produce fluorescent nanoparticles for medical applications in a nuclear reactor

12-Nov-2018

Under the leadership of Petr Cígler from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry (IOCB Prague) and Martin Hrubý from the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry (IMC), both of which are part of the Czech Academy of Sciences, a team of researchers has developed a revolutionary method for ...

Nanodiamonds as photocatalysts

22-Oct-2018

Diamond nanomaterials are considered hot candidates for low-cost photocatalysts. They can be activated by light and can then accelerate certain reactions between water and CO2 and produce carbon-neutral "solar fuels". The EU project DIACAT has now doped such diamond materials with boron and shown ...

Shedding light on - and through - 2D materials

26-Sep-2018

The ability of metallic or semiconducting materials to absorb, reflect and act upon light is of primary importance to scientists developing optoelectronics - electronic devices that interact with light to perform tasks. Rice University scientists have now produced a method to determine the ...

On the pathway to novel hydrogen storage materials

26-Jul-2018

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and their European partners have developed a new chemical system for storing solid hydrogen. The special combination of hydrides allows overcoming some of the most serious drawbacks associated to the use of this class of materials. This represents a ...

Boring down on boron

14-Jun-2018

High-temperature desalination technologies can efficiently reduce the concentrations of a chemical element in seawater to make it an effective substitute for fresh water. Research that has investigated how the element boron evaporates could help produce higher-quality drinking and irrigation ...

Individual impurity atoms detectable in graphene

17-Apr-2018

A team including physicists from the University of Basel has succeeded in using atomic force microscopy to clearly obtain images of individual impurity atoms in graphene ribbons. Thanks to the forces measured in the graphene’s two-dimensional carbon lattice, they were able to identify boron and ...

Stable biradicals adding a new attraction to chemistry

Boron biradical in ground-state synthesized

26-Mar-2018

Researchers at the University of Würzburg in Germany have succeeded in twisting molecules so much that their double bonds have been completely destroyed. The result: unusually stable biradicals. Boron has a range of uses throughout everyday life, from laundry bleaches to heat-proof glass and ...
