Closing the carbon cycle to stop climate change

Defects in nanosilica can save planet earth from global warming

20-Mar-2020

An excessive amount of carbon dioxide is the main cause of climate change. One of the best approaches is to capture and convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into fuel such as methane. On the other hand, a sustainable way to solve the energy problem is to generate alternative energy source, however, ...

Shaping the rings of molecules

Boon for the making of pharmaceuticals and electronics

25-Feb-2020

Macrocycles are molecules made of large rings of atoms. Despite being relatively big and flexible, the molecules don't always stay "floppy" -- they can actually lock themselves into specific shapes and geometries. In manufacturing, controlling the three-dimensional shapes of macrocycles is ...

Effective way to obtain fuel for hydrogen engines

24-Feb-2020

One of the most promising alternative energy sources is hydrogen, which can be extracted from water and air. A catalyst is needed for a chemical process that releases hydrogen from an H2O molecule. It can be made, for example, from platinum, or from molybdenum. But these are quite expensive ...
