Using electricity to give chemistry a boost

University Delaware advance opens door to accessing new materials for catalysis, sensing and gas storage

13-Sep-2021

Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a promising class of materials that have many applications as catalysts, sensors and for gas storage. Widely studied over the past two decades, MOFs are typically produced using chemical processes that require high heat and high pressure. Now, University of ...

Understanding enzyme evolution paves the way for green chemistry

How evolution makes designer enzymes more powerful, paving the way to tailor-made catalysts

26-Aug-2021

Researchers at the University of Bristol have shown how laboratory evolution can give rise to highly efficient enzymes for new-to-nature reactions, opening the door for novel and more environmentally friendly ways to make drugs and other chemicals. Scientists have previously designed protein ...

Changes in colour indicate deformations

Fluorescence indicates overstressed parts

24-Aug-2021

ETH Zurich researchers have developed a new type of laminate that changes colour as soon as the material is deformed. This way, the materials researchers can kill two birds with one stone: a lightweight composite material that inspects itself. Lightweight construction has found its way into many ...

Polymers “click” together using green chemistry

To build a new polymer using “click chemistry,” chemists first had to tame a dangerous gas

18-Aug-2021

SOF4is a gas that was discovered over a hundred years ago but is rarely used because it is difficult to prepare and highly reactive. Now a collaboration of chemists including Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) ProfessorJohn E. Moses, Nobel laureate K. Barry Sharpless and Associate Professor ...

How ions get their electrons back

What happens when ions are passing through solid materials? It is nearly impossible to observe this directly, but scientists at TU Wien found a way to overcome this problem

17-Aug-2021

Very unusual atomic states are produced at TU Wien: Ions are created by removing not just one but 20 to 40 electrons from each atom. These “highly charged ions” play an important role in current research. For a long time, people have been investigating what happens when such highly charged ions ...

Microplastics: A Trojan Horse for Metals

Study shows that microplastics can serve as a transport vehicle for metals in the environment

11-Aug-2021

The fact that microplastics can accumulate organic pollutants from the environment and transport them has been known for some time. What is new, however, is that metals can also be transported in this manner. In addition, the smaller the particles, the greater the metal accumulation on the ...

Manganese could make luminescent materials and the conversion of sunlight more sustainable

06-Aug-2021

University of Basel researchers have reached an important milestone in their quest to produce more sustainable luminescent materials and catalysts for converting sunlight into other forms of energy. Based on the cheap metal manganese, they have developed a new class of compounds with promising ...

Birnessite study offers insights for electrochemistry, energy storage

06-Aug-2021

The adsorption of ions from the electrolyte at an electrode surface is a ubiquitous process, of use for both existing and emerging electrochemical energy technologies. But what happens when these ions penetrate very small spaces? To address this question, researchers at NC State re-examined the ...

Making stresses in plastics and components visible

Research team led by TU Chemnitz develops dyes that continuously indicate stresses and their strength in plastics and components by changing colour

05-Aug-2021

A research team led by Prof. Dr. Michael Sommer, holder of the Professorship of Polymer Chemistry at Chemnitz University of Technology, and PD Dr. Michael Walter, project leader at the Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) at Albert Ludwig ...

New US and German collaboration aims to produce green hydrogen more efficiently

NSF-DFG EChem Award Announcement

27-Jul-2021

Through a new award program, the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) have joined forces to award the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Technical University of Darmstadt a three-year $720,000 research grant ($500,000 ...
