Reversal speeds creation of important molecule

Rice's K.C. Nicolaou lab makes synthesis of halichondrin B more efficient

02-Jul-2021

The story of halichondrin B, an inspirational molecule obtained from a marine creature, goes back to the molecule's discovery in an ocean sponge in 1986. Though it has been replicated in the laboratory several times before, new work by Rice University chemists could make halichondrin B and its ...

Stepstone for sustainable batteries – greener carbons

Project HiQ-CARB aims to provide new carbons with a superior performance and a low carbon footprint for future green batteries in Europe

08-Jun-2021

Lithium-ion batteries require in addition to lithium metal a number of sophisticated functional materials for their performance. Some of them sound rather unspectacular: conductive additives. In fact, conductive additives like carbon black or carbon nanotubes are a decisive component for the ...

The biodegradable battery - an ecological miracle

New mini-capacitor consists of carbon, cellulose, glycerin and table salt

07-Jun-2021

The number of data-transmitting microdevices, for instance in packaging and transport logistics, will increase sharply in the coming years. All these devices need energy, but the amount of batteries would have a major impact on the environment. Empa researchers have developed a biodegradable ...

A new form of carbon

Not graphene: researchers in Germany and Finland discover new type of atomically thin carbon material

25-May-2021

Carbon exists in various forms. In addition to diamond and graphite, there are recently discovered forms with astonishing properties. For example graphene, with a thickness of just one atomic layer, is the thinnest known material, and its unusual properties make it an extremely exciting candidate ...

White biotechnology enables carbon recycling

LanzaTech and BASF achieve first milestone in utilizing industrial off-gases for chemical production

14-May-2021

Transforming the carbon contained in industrial off-gases into valuable chemicals is the aim of a partnership between LanzaTech and BASF. Now the partners have achieved a key first success: With the help of special bacteria, they have been able to produce n-octanol at laboratory scale from carbon ...

Transparent view of atomic building blocks through inverse kinematics

31-Mar-2021

Using inverse kinematics, the elegant inversion of an established research method, and choosing the right measurement conditions, an international team presented a way to study in detail the properties of the nucleon-nucleon interaction in the atomic nucleus. The experiment was carried out by a ...

Researchers create powerful unipolar carbon nanotube muscles

03-Feb-2021

For more than 15 years, researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas and their collaborators in the U.S., Australia, South Korea and China have fabricated artificial muscles by twisting and coiling carbon nanotube or polymer yarns. When thermally powered, these muscles actuate by contracting ...

Teamwork in a molecule

Chemists harness synergy effect of gallium

22-Jan-2021

Chemists at Friedrich Schiller University Jena have demonstrated the value of “teamwork” by successfully harnessing the interaction between two gallium atoms in a novel compound to split the particularly strong bond between fluorine and carbon. The gallium compound is also cheaper and more ...

Carbyne – an unusual form of carbon

International team of researchers investigates optical band gap of carbon compound

13-Nov-2020

Which photophysical properties does carbyne have? This was the subject of research carried out by scientists at FAU, the University of Alberta, Canada, and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, which has led to a greater understanding of the properties of this unusual form ...

Improving high-energy lithium-ion batteries with carbon filler

Conductive carbon fillers in lithium-ion batteries allow high power output with reversible energy storage

13-Nov-2020

Lithium-ion batteries are the major rechargeable power source for many portable devices as well as electric vehicles, but their use is limited, because they do not provide high power output while simultaneously allowing reversible energy storage. Research reported in Applied Physics Reviews, by ...
