“We thought if two metals were producing good results, then perhaps three metals would be even better”
Chemists have developed a nano-scale structure that combines copper, gold and silver to work as a superior catalyst in a chemical reaction whose improved performance will be essential if carbon capture and utilization efforts are to succeed in helping to mitigate global warming. In the face of ...
Towards new 2D materials
Atoms bind together by sharing electrons. The way this happens depends on the atom types but also on conditions such as temperature and pressure. In two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene, atoms join along a plane to form structures just one atom thick, which leads to fascinating ...
Novel electrochemical device based on solid-state electrolyte
Anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide bring a series of climatic and environmental problems including global warming. Artificially upcycling of carbon dioxide into value-added fuels and chemicals, powered by "green electricity" of renewable energy, provides an elegant route to close the ...
Minimization of defects in ALD passivation films with only two steps through Bayesian optimization
An interdisciplinary team of researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, the Technical University of Munich, and Robert Bosch GmbH deploy Bayesian Machine Learning methods to fast-track the optimization process of coating ...
A new electrochemical technique makes the production of complex metallic objects at the nanoscale possible
In recent years 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, has established itself as a promising new manufacturing process for a wide variety of components. Dr Dmitry Momotenko, a chemist at the University of Oldenburg, has now succeeded in fabricating ultrasmall metal objects using a new ...
Additively manufactured copper components for linear accelerators
World first: Fraunhofer IWS for the very first time prints quadrupole components for linear accelerator.These linear accelerators are so compact that they are becoming affordable even for smaller hospitals, airports and laboratories. To support this development, the Fraunhofer Institute for ...
Are you affected by your neighbours? So are nanoparticles in catalysts
New research from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, published in the journals Science Advances and Nature Communications, reveals how the nearest neighbours determine how well nanoparticles work in a catalyst. "The long-term goal of the research is to be able to identify ...
Promising way to to transform ethylene production into a greener industry
A research team from Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated a promising way to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene -- an important chemical used to produce plastics, solvents, cosmetics and other important products globally. The scientists developed ...
New magnesium battery demonstrates dramatic improvement of performance
Researchers at the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have come a step closer to making a viable, high-output battery based on magnesium (Mg), an element the United States Geological Survey reports is far more abundant than ...
Green luminescent substance is a hot candidate for producing OLEDs
At the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI, researchers have gained insights into a promising material for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The substance enables high light yields and would be inexpensive to produce on a large scale - that means it is practically made for use in large-area room ...
