New procedure will reduce the need for rare metals in chemical synthesis

Researchers are working to improve the long-term sustainability of pharmaceutical and other chemical syntheses

02-Dec-2020

Pharmaceuticals, plastics, and many other chemical products have transformed human life. To prepare these products, chemists often use a catalyst--frequently based on rare metals--at various points in their syntheses. Although rare-metal catalysts are incredibly useful, their limited supply means ...

A cheaper way to scale up atomic layer deposition

13-Nov-2019

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) involves stacking layers of atoms on top of each other like pancakes. The atoms come from a vaporized material called a precursor. ALD is a well-established technique for manufacturing microelectronics like semiconductors and magnetic heads for sound recording, as ...

A new way to make valuable chemicals

Research creates process that advances the field of carbon utilization

28-Aug-2019

In an effort to develop sustainable solutions to humanity's energy needs, many scientists are studying carbon capture and utilization -- the practice of using excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere or from point sources, instead of fossil fuels, to synthesize chemicals used to make everyday ...

Researchers produce first-ever videos of chemical synthesis at atomic resolution

26-Aug-2019

For the first time, researchers have managed to view previously inaccessible details of certain chemical processes. They have shown there are significant discrete stages to these processes which build on our knowledge of chemical synthesis. These details could aid in the development of methods to ...

Inhoffen Medal 2019 awarded to specialist for synthetic organic chemistry

08-Apr-2019

Medically relevant compounds can often be found in nature. To make them suitable for drugs, they need to be isolated from their natural sources. If sufficient quantities of the agent cannot be isolated in that manner, chemical synthesis comes into play. Without chemical synthesis, many agents ...

Duplicate or mirror? Laser light determines chirality of molecules

19-Mar-2019

Seven of the ten most frequent medications contain chiral agents. These are molecules that occur in right- or left-handed forms. During chemical synthesis both forms usually occur in equal parts and have to be separated afterward, because chirality determines the agent’s effect in the body. ...

Gaining control over soft-molecule synthesis

16-Jan-2019

By gaining control over shape, size and composition during synthetic molecule assembly, researchers can begin to probe how these factors influence the function of soft materials. Finding these answers could help advance virology, drug delivery development and the creation of new materials. "We ...
