Engineered E. coli could make carbohydrates, renewable fuel, from CO2

"The key is for a microbe to use formate as its sole carbon source"

15-Sep-2021

Researchers from Newcastle University, UK have engineeredEscherichia coli bacteria to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) using hydrogen gas (H2) to convertit into formic acid. The research,published inApplied and Environmental Microbiologyraises the possibility of converting atmospheric CO2 to ...

Carbon dioxide as a raw material for plastics and other products

Carbon dioxide is one of the main drivers of climate change – which means that we need to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions in the future. Fraunhofer researchers are highlighting a possible way to lower

05-Aug-2021

Carbon dioxide is one of the main drivers of climate change – which means that we need to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions in the future. Fraunhofer researchers are highlighting a possible way to lower these emissions: They use the greenhouse gas as a raw material, for instance to produce ...

Mechanism Deciphered: How Organic Acids Are Formed in the Atmosphere

17-May-2021

The acidity of the atmosphere is increasingly determined by carbon dioxide and organic acids such as formic acid. The second of these contribute to the formation of aerosol particles as a precursor of raindrops and therefore impact the growth of clouds and pH of rainwater. In previous atmospheric ...

CO2 Catalysis Made More Accessible

An economical alloy-based aerogel as electrocatalyst for carbon fixation

03-May-2021

Many industrial processes emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, however, current electrochemical separation methods are expensive and consume large amounts of power. They also require expensive and rare metals as catalysts. A study in the journal Angewandte Chemie describes a ...

Dance of the molecules: New methods of producing tailor-made materials

Scientists observe vibrational dynamics of organic acid molecules on iron oxide surface

03-May-2021

A Hamburg research team is paving the way for new methods of producing tailor-made materials: for the first time, the scientists from DESY NanoLab and the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) have deciphered the collective arrangement of organic acid molecules on an iron oxide surface at the ...

New synthetic route for biofuel production

Compared to previous methods, the team has achieved a high yield and selectivity under less aggressive reaction conditions

09-Feb-2021

A German-Chinese research team has found a new synthetic route to produce biofuel from biomass. The chemists converted the substance 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) produced from biomass into 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), which could be suitable as a biofuel. Compared to previous methods, they achieved ...

Wireless device makes clean fuel from sunlight, CO₂ and water

Significant step toward achieving artificial photosynthesis

26-Aug-2020

Researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without requiring any additional components or electricity. The device, developed by a team from the University of Cambridge, is a significant step toward achieving ...

Environmentally friendly production of mandelic acid

Scientists found a method for the "green" production of the important starting material for the chemical industry

29-May-2020

Sometimes potentially useful enzymes are not easy to discover because their biocatalytic capabilities may go beyond their natural and thus known range of action. By recombining a newly discovered enzymatic capability, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology led ...

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. ...
