A special catalyst enables a “dream reaction”
Menthol and cannabinoids are important for the chemical industry. A team led by Prof. Benjamin List has now found a new way to synthesize both substances - cheaper and more efficient than before. Our toothpaste contains it, you can find it in cold remedies, and it makes our chewing gum tasty: ...
Aramco and Linde Engineering announced that they have signed an agreement to jointly develop a new ammonia cracking technology. The collaboration between the two companies will combine Linde Engineering and Aramco’s experience and capabilities in industrial research and development, lower-carbon ...
More insights with AFM
A further development in atomic force microscopy now makes it possible to simultaneously image the height profile of nanometre-fine structures as well as the electric current and the frictional force at solid-liquid interfaces. A team from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the Fritz Haber ...
Scientists create computational model for identifying low-cost catalysts that convert biomass into fuels and useful chemicals with low carbon footprint
Next time you drive past farms or prairies and ponds on a rural road, look around. They are a rich source of biomass. That includes corn, soybeans, sugar cane, switchgrass, algae and other plant matter. These carbon-rich materials can be converted to liquid fuels and chemicals with many possible ...
Discovery could convert non-biodegradable fluorinated hydrocarbons and, in perspective, even climate-damaging greenhouse gases
Researchers at Paderborn University have succeeded in producing very special catalysts, known as “Lewis superacids”, which can be used to break strong chemical bonds and speed up reactions. The production of these substances has, until now, proven extremely difficult. The chemists’ discovery ...
Revolutionary breakthrough: The catalyst transforms motor oil, plastic and natural gas into sustainable materials
Researchers created a new catalyst that transforms hydrocarbons into chemicals and materials that are higher value, easier to recycle, and biodegrade in the environment. This catalyst transforms materials such as motor oil, plastics in single-use grocery bags, water or milk bottles, and their ...
Start-ups aim to make fuel cells for heavy-duty applications more cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and improve performance
The Slovenian start-up ReCatalyst and the German start-up ionysis have been selected for funding under the prestigious EIC Transition call and invited to sign the grant agreement with a funding volume of 2.5 million euros. Even before ionysis and ReCatalyst were founded, the founding teams worked ...
New process could advance a waste-free system of polymer manufacture and re-use
Lignin is arguably the most abundant component of biomass that most people have never heard of. That may be about to change. Many people are familiar with its biochemical cousin cellulose, a byproduct of paper and wood milling. But the same processes produce 50 million tons of lignin annually, ...
Researchers have made real-time movies of copper nanoparticles as they evolve to convert carbon dioxide and water into renewable fuels and chemicals
Since the 1970s, scientists have known that copper has a special ability to transform carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals and fuels. But for many years, scientists have struggled to understand how this common metal works as an electrocatalyst, a mechanism that uses energy from electrons to ...
A team led by Dr. Prashanth W. Menezes (HZB/TU-Berlin) has now gained insights into the chemistry of one of the most active anode catalysts for green hydrogen production. They examined a series of Cobalt-Iron Oxyhydroxides at BESSY II and were able to determine the oxidation states of the active ...
