Ultralight, Flexible, and Fire‐Resistant Carbon Nanofiber Aerogels from Bacterial Cellulose

Durstige Fasern: Zur Herstellung der im Titel genannten Aerogele im großen Maßstab wird kostengünstige Biomasse, nämlich bakterielle Cellulose verwendet, die industriell in einem mikrobiologischen Fermentationsprozess produziert wird. Die Kohlenstoff‐Nanofaser‐Aerogele (schwarze Stückchen im Bild) haben eine große Absorptionskapazität für organische Lösungsmittel (rote Lösung) und großes Potenzial für die Anwendung als Drucksensoren.

    Spectroscopically Controlled Quantum Bits

    Molecules could make useful systems for quantum computers, but they must contain individually addressable, interacting quantum bit centers. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a team of researchers has now presented a molecular model with three different, coupled qubit centers. As each center ... more

    Fuel from a Greenhouse Gas

    One step toward carbon dioxide (CO2) neutrality and the mitigation of both the greenhouse effect and the energy crisis would be to convert CO2 into hydrocarbon-based fuels like methane using light. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a Chinese research team has introduced a highly effective p ... more

    Economical PEF Production

    One possible replacement for drink containers made from PET is polyethylene furandicarboxylate (PEF), made from renewable resources. However, the production of the raw material for PEF from biomass is still rather inefficient. A new titanium-based photocatalyst could be about to change this ... more
