Can ionic liquids transform chemistry?

07-Feb-2020

Table salt is a commonplace ingredient in the kitchen, but a different kind of salt is at the forefront of chemistry innovation. Low-temperature molten salts known as ionic liquids are said to be "greener" and safer than traditional solvents. According to an article in Chemical & Engineering ...

A new look at 'strange metals'

20-Jan-2020

For years, a new synthesis method has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna) to unlock the secrets of "strange metals". Now a breakthrough has been achieved. Superconductors allow electrical current to flow without any resistance - but only below a certain critical temperature. Many materials have to ...

Two chiral catalysts working hand in hand

Chemists develop a synthetic method providing access to different stereoisomers of a molecule

05-Dec-2019

Just as our left hand is not superposable to our right hand, the mirror image of certain molecules cannot be overlapped onto it, even when turned or twisted. These two mirror images are referred to by chemists as enantiomers and the molecule is said to be chiral. Chirality, which is a word ...

New synthesis approach for soluble silicon clusters

Anticipating silicon solar cells with significantly improved efficiency

18-Nov-2019

Theoretical calculations indicate that under certain conditions silicon can endow solar cells with a much higher efficiency. Small silicon clusters may provide a source of accordingly modified silicon. However, to date these clusters have not been accessible in soluble form, a prerequisite for ...

Evonik and Dow develop industrial-scale direct synthesis of propylene glycol from propylene and hydrogen peroxide

31-Oct-2019

Dow and Evonik have entered into an exclusive technology partnership. Together, they plan to bring a unique method for directly synthesizing propylene glycol (PG) from propylene and hydrogen peroxide to market maturity. The basis for the method, named HYPROSYN™, has been created over the last few ...

Chemists create new types of Lewis acids

Synthesis for the first time on the basis of phosphorus

24-Oct-2019

Researchers at the University of Münster have developed a method which makes it possible to create three-coordinate Lewis superacids on the basis of phosphorus. Previously, it had not been possible to isolate this type of compound, either in a liquid or in a solid state, due to its extreme ...
