The role of hydrophobic molecules in catalytic reactions

Optimising electrochemical processes is one of the challenges in developing technologies for renewable energies. New research findings could provide assistance here.


Electrochemical processes could be used to convert CO2 into useful starting materials for industry. To optimise the processes, chemists are attempting to calculate in detail the energy costs caused by the various reaction partners and steps. Researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and ...

Molecules change shape when wet


Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water Researchers around Melanie Schnell from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at CFEL and from the Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI) ...

A single ion impacts a million water molecules


Water is simple and complex at the same time. A single water molecule (H2O) is made up of only 3 atoms. Yet the collective behavior of water molecules is unique and continues to amaze us. Water molecules are linked together by hydrogen bonds that break and form several thousands of billions of ...


Increasing substrate selectivity through encapsulation


Italian chemists have come up with a homogenous catalytic system that displays substrate selectivity by developing an encapsulated catalyst that mimics enzymes to selectively hydrate one alkyne over a mixture of others. The scientists encapsulated an NHC-Au(I) catalyst within a supramolecular ...

Why fish don't freeze in the Arctic Ocean

Chemists unmask natural antifreeze


Together with cooperation partners from the U.S., the researchers surrounding Prof. Dr. Martina Havenith (Physical Chemistry II of the RUB) describe their discovery in a so-termed Rapid Communication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). The journal's independent reviewers ...


Basque Country University researcher studies atom to atom cement


2000 years after the Romans invented cement, this material is still the most commonly used in construction throughout the world. Its complex internal structure means that many questions about this material continue to have unsatisfactory answers. The PhD thesis by Mr Hegoi Manzano Moro at the ...

Triathletes rely on silicones for every step, stroke and pedal


For triathletes, the race might not be to the swift, but rather to those using the most silicone equipment to keep them dry, comfortable and hydrated. The latest swimming technology In competitive swimming, high-quality equipment is almost as essential as proper training. Clear underwater ...


Surprising Discovery Leads to New Understanding of Water Quality


Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory have discovered new ways that ions interact with mineral surfaces in water, opening a door to new knowledge on how contaminants travel in the environment. The insight, published in today's issue of Physical Review Letters, ...


Monitoring ligand binding for material analysis through the use of HR-US Titration analysis


Ultrasonic Scientific Ltd. presented a method to monitor ligand binding for material analysis through the use of HR-US Titration analysis . According to the company, this novel technique is capable of analysing molecular bindings with or without minimum sample preparation in both dilute and ...


Labcyte Receives 22nd Patent for Restoration of Fluid Volume and Composition Using Acoustics


Labcyte Inc. has received its 22nd patent (U.S. Patent 6,932,097), which discloses how to use acoustics to monitor the composition and volume of a fluid and maintain those parameters via active fluid supplementation. In many applications, both chemical and biological, fluid composition can change ...
