Primeval Reaction Pathways

Some reactions in the reverse Krebs cycle can also be run under meteorite catalysis


Naturally occurring chemical reactions may have evolved into the biochemical processes we know today. A team of researchers has now discovered that a reaction sequence from the so-called reverse Krebs cycle—a fundamental biochemical process—can also take place without enzymes. The team writes in ...

Direct conversion of carbon dioxide into bulk chemicals and liquid fuels


High-efficiency utilization of CO2 facilitates the reduction of CO2 concentration in the global atmosphere and hence the alleviation of the greenhouse effect. The chemical utilization of CO2, which refers to converting CO2 into value-added chemicals and liquid fuels, has a distinct and direct CO2 ...

Caught in the act: Key chemical intermediates in pollutant-to-fuel reaction identified

Such work will help convert an atmospheric pollutant into fuel for vehicles, and chemical feedstocks for industry


Researchers from the University of Tsukuba and collaborating partners experimentally measured hydrogenation of metal-adsorbed formate. This development will facilitate practical conversion of carbon dioxide pollutant into methanol fuel. Carbon dioxide pollution continues to change the global ...

Fuel from waste wood

Possibility to produce ethanol on a financially competitive and technically efficient basis


According to the latest assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions is required to limit the consequences of climate change. Producing fuel from renewable sources such as waste wood and straw or renewable electricity would be one ...

Novel synergistic single-atom catalyst approach breaks activity limitation of predecessors

While the developed synergistic catalyst does not erase the need for noble metals, it does reduce the amount needed for a better reaction


The key to chemical reactions is in the name — there needs to be something that causes the chemicals to react to one another. Called a catalyst, this component induces or speeds up reactions in a controlled manner to produce a desired outcome. The catalysts used in several industries are often ...

"Magic" combination for more effective hydrogenations

The activity of this “magic” combination came as a real surprise


Hydrogen (H2) is the smallest chemical molecule and a beacon of hope for a more environmentally friendly energy transition in the coming years. In addition, it is already used in a variety of industrial processes - so-called hydrogenations - for the environmentally friendly production of chemical ...

Sustainable High Efficiency Hydrogenation Biocatalysis

Cleaner, safer and more efficient chemical manufacture


UK-based HydRegen are using a DrySyn OCTO reaction station from Asynt to help develop a next generation biocatalyst system that enables cleaner, safer, and more efficient chemical manufacture. HydRegen spun-out from the Vincent Group in the Dept. of Chemistry at the University of Oxford in March ...

Molecular Assistance: Molecule layer aids chemoselective hydrogenation on solid palladium catalysts

How to obtain a palladium catalyst for the selective hydrogenation of acrolein


Chemical reactions don’t always go to plan. Unwanted by-products lead to extra costs and waste resources. Selective catalysts can help, but chemists have to test out large numbers before they find the right fit. Researchers have now investigated, on an atomic level, how to obtain a palladium ...

Scientists got one step closer to solving a major problem of hydrogen energy

Metallic glass has the potential to replace palladium


A team of scientists from Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) together with their colleagues from Austria, Turkey, Slovakia, Russia (MISIS, MSU), and the UK found a way to hydrogenate thin metallic glass layers at room temperature. This technology can considerably expand the range of cheap, ...

Efficient indium oxide catalysts designed for CO2 hydrogenation to methanol

Promising way to directly convert CO2 into methanol for industrial applications


Catalytic hydrogenation of carbon dioxide (CO2) is a green and sustainable means of synthesizing commodity chemicals such as methanol. This conversion process is key to realizing the "methanol economy" or creating "liquid sunshine", both aspects of the circular economy. Recent studies revealed ...
