How the first biomolecules could have been formed

International team shows that the first biologically relevant compounds could have originated on Earth's surface


The chemical precursors of present-day biomolecules could have formed not only in the deep sea at hydrothermal vents, but also in warm ponds on the Earth's surface. The chemical reactions that may have occurred in this “primordial soup” have now been reproduced in experiments by an international ...


LANXESS: Combining business segments bears fruit

Strong synergy effects at Rhein Chemie Additives


Specialty chemicals company LANXESS combined all its additive-related business segments in the new Rhein Chemie Additives business unit (ADD) in early 2015, and the move is bearing fruit. One synergy effect is the more efficient utilization of phosphorus plants operated by the company at various ...


Chemists explain the molecular workings of promising fuel cell electrolyte


Researchers from New York University and the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart reveal how protons move in phosphoric acid in a Nature Chemistry study that sheds new light on the workings of a promising fuel cell electrolyte. Phosphoric acid fuel cells were the first modern fuel cell types to be ...


Reducing production costs and environmental footprint for semiconductor industry

TNO and Solvay develop new process for high purity Phosphoric acid


Solvay and TNO have developed together a new process for the purification of Phosphoric acid. Based on a novel and very precise crystallisation technology perfected by TNO, the TNO HWC®. This technology is especially suited to producing Phosphoric acid that meets the extremely stringent purity ...


Graphene oxide gets green

Rice researchers show environmentally friendly ways to make it in bulk, break it down


"We can make you and we can break you." If Rice University scientists wrote country songs, their ode to graphene oxide would start something like that. But this song wouldn't break anybody's heart. A new paper from the lab of Rice chemist James Tour demonstrates an environmentally friendly way ...


Non-covalent chiral organocatalysis uses water as a solvent


The first example of Brønsted acid asymmetric catalysis in aqueous solution is reported by Magnus Rueping and Thomas Theissman at Aachen University, Germany. Using a chiral phosphoric acid catalyst Rueping demonstrates highly enantioselective hydrogenation of quinolines in water, a reaction ...


Sasol Initiates Consultation Ahead of Possible Plant Closure


Sasol announced the initiation of consultations with various stakeholders ahead of a possible closure of Sasol Nitro's phosphoric acid operations in Phalaborwa. The plant, which manufactures phosphoric acid from mainly phosphate rock and sulphur, has had varying financial success during its ...


Environmental prize awarded to Kemira's waste effluent technology in Germany


An environmental prize has been awarded to the aluminum producer NordAlu for its waste effluent treatment plant in Germany. The plant was built and developed by Kemira and uses Kemira's patented waste effluent technology. The prize was awarded by the Association for Studies and the Promotion of ...


Nanotechnology may increase longevity of dental fillings


Tooth-colored fillings may be more attractive than silver ones, but the bonds between the white filling and the tooth quickly age and degrade. A Medical College of Georgia researcher hopes a new nanotechnology technique will extend the fillings' longevity. "Dentin adhesives bond well initially, ...


Biomass as a source of raw materials

New process for obtaining alkanes from bio-oil


For the protection of the environment, and because of the limited amount of fossil fuels available, renewable resources, such as specially cultivated plants, wood scraps, and other plant waste, are becoming the focus of considerable attention. Processes such as pyrolysis or liquefaction allow the ...
