Nanoceramics from the ball mill

Nanometer-sized corundum particles can now be produced amazingly easily

01-Nov-2019

Automotive catalysts, among others, and materials for dental implants could become more robust and easier to manufacture than ever before. This is because chemists at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr have found a way to produce corundum (also known as ...

New algorithm finds the optimal bond breaking point for single molecules

02-Aug-2017

Recent developments in atomic-force microscopy have enabled researchers to apply mechanical forces to individual molecules to induce chemical reactions. A research team from Spain and Germany has now developed a first-of-its-kind algorithm that determines the minimal force it takes to reach the ...

A more sustainable way to refine metals

08-Jun-2017

A team of chemists in Canada has developed a way to process metals without using toxic solvents and reagents. The system, which also consumes far less energy than conventional techniques, could greatly shrink the environmental impact of producing metals from raw materials or from post-consumer ...

Splitting disulphide bonds in water is more complicated than previously thought

26-Oct-2016

From a chemical perspective, splitting disulphide bonds under tensile stress is a substantially more complicated process than previously assumed. A team headed by Prof Dr Dominik Marx from Ruhr-Universität Bochum found out what happens in detail during this process - with the aid of extensive ...

Photovoltaics? On perovskites produced by mechanochemistry!

18-Jan-2016

Perovskites, substances that perfectly absorb light, are the future of solar energy. The opportunity for their rapid dissemination has just increased thanks to a cheap and environmentally safe method of production of these materials, developed by chemists from Warsaw, Poland. Rather than in ...

RUB researchers unmask Janus-faced nature of mechanical forces with the Jülich supercomputer

19-Jun-2013

The harder you pull, the quicker it goes. At least, that used to be the rule in mechanochemistry, a method that researchers apply to set chemical reactions in motion by means of mechanical forces. However, as chemists led by Professor Dominik Marx, Chair of Theoretical Chemistry at the ...

Queen’s develops new environmentally friendly MOF production method

19-Oct-2012

Chemists at Queen’s University Belfast have devised a novel, environmentally friendly technique, which allows the rapid production of Metal-Organic Frameworks porous materials (MOFs). These revolutionary nanomaterials have the potential to transform hazardous gas storage, natural gas vehicles and ...
