'Blinking" crystals may convert CO2 into fuels

Unusual nanoparticles could could be useful for environmental cleanups, sensors, electronic devices and solar cells

21-Jul-2020

Imagine tiny crystals that "blink" like fireflies and can convert carbon dioxide, a key cause of climate change, into fuels. A Rutgers-led team has created ultra-small titanium dioxide crystals that exhibit unusual "blinking" behavior and may help to produce methane and other fuels, according to ...
