Researchers make key step towards turning methane gas into liquid fuel


Researchers at the University of Washington and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have taken an important step in converting methane gas to a liquid, potentially making it more useful as a fuel and as a source for making other chemicals. Methane, the primary component of natural ...

Novel temperature calibration improves NIST microhotplate technology


Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new calibration technique that will improve the reliability and stability of one of NIST's most versatile technologies, the microhotplate. The novel NIST device is being developed as the foundation for ...


New clues about a hydrogen fuel catalyst


To use hydrogen as a clean energy source, some engineers want to pack hydrogen into a larger molecule, rather than compressing the gas into a tank. A gas flows easily out of a tank, but getting hydrogen out of a molecule requires a catalyst. Now, researchers reveal new details about one such ...


University of Toronto chemists uncover green catalysts


A University of Toronto research team from the Department of Chemistry has discovered useful "green" catalysts made from iron that might replace the much more expensive and toxic platinum metals typically used in industrial chemical processes to produce drugs, fragrances and flavours. The ...


New catalyst paves the path for ethanol-powered fuel cells


A team of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Delaware and Yeshiva University, has developed a new catalyst that could make ethanol-powered fuel cells feasible. The highly efficient catalyst ...


Los Alamos scientists see new mechanism for superconductivity

Research explains unconventional superconductivity without phonons


Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers have posited an explanation for superconductivity that may open the door to the discovery of new, unconventional forms of superconductivity. In a Nature letter, research led by Tuson Park and Joe D. Thompson describes a new explanation for ...

Transition to sustainable catalysis

Japanese scientists have discovered a cheap and enantioselective catalyst for asymmetric hydrogenation reactions


Yasumasa Hamada and colleagues at Chiba University used a combination of nickel acetate and a commercially available phosphine ligand to catalyse the asymmetric hydrogenation of an alpha-amino-beta-keto ester hydrochloride. Although others have reported similar reactions, Hamada says this is the ...


Scaring off Mosquitoes

Total synthesis of gaur acid reveals the spatial structure of this proposed yellow-fever mosquito repellant


Mosquito bites are more than just annoying-in tropical regions they can be deadly because these little pests spread tropical diseases such as malaria and yellow fever. Recently a compound that is thought to serve as a landing and feeding deterrent for the yellow-fever-spreading Aedes mosquito ...


Chiral Quest receives U.S. patent for DIOP* ligand family


Chiral Quest, Inc. today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent (No. 6,576,772) covering composition of matter for chiral bisphosphine ligands derived from D-mannitol to The Penn State Research Foundation, a non-profit corporation. Professor Xumu Zhang, Chiral ...


New Chiral Hydrogenation Technology


Leverkusen - Bayer AG has commercialized a new chiral hydrogenation technology to meet the demand for chiral advanced intermediates and active pharmaceutical ingredients with one or more stereo-centers. The technology allows Bayer to produce chiral hydrogenation catalysts including the R and S ...
