New research shows how complex chemistry may be relevant to origins of life on Earth

09-Jun-2020

Chemists have long sought to understand the origins of life, with one popular model suggesting life began when simple RNA molecules capable of copying themselves formed spontaneously in the primitive environment. How this happened exactly is fraught with difficulties. New research by a team of ...

Building a better salt trap: Scientists synthesize a molecular 'cage' to trap chloride

New molecule designed at Indiana University could help reduce growing level of salt contaminants flowing into freshwater streams and lakes across the US

31-May-2019

Indiana University researchers have created a powerful new molecule for the extraction of salt from liquid. The work has potential to help increase the amount of drinkable water on Earth. Built using chemical bonds previously regarded as too weak, the new molecule is about ten billion times ...

Porous salts for fuel cells

Organic salts with high proton conductivity

23-Apr-2018

Scientists have developed a new class of crystalline porous organic salts with high proton conductivity for applications such as proton-exchange membranes for fuel cells. Polar channels that contain water play a critical role in proton conduction. At about 60 °C and high humidity, their proton ...

A recipe for concrete that can withstand road salt deterioration

22-May-2017

Road salt, used in copious helpings each winter to protect them from ice and preserve safe driving conditions, is slowly degrading the concrete they're made of. Engineers have known for some time that calcium chloride salt, commonly used as deicer, reacts with the calcium hydroxide in concrete to ...

Cooling towards absolute zero using super-heavy electrons

New quantum material significantly improves adiabatic demagnetization cooling

13-Sep-2016

To reach temperatures closely above absolute zero at −273.16 °C the demagnetization of magnetic materials under adiabatic, i.e., thermally insulated, conditions is utilized. Up to now, diluted magnetic salts have been used for this purpose. Researchers from Augsburg, Göttingen, Kyoto and Iowa ...
