  • Smart coatings in the pipeline

    An imaginative approach to polymer surface coating has produced a sustainable way to remove mercury from water – while providing a wide range of protection including for preventing metal corrosion and solvent damage of plastic PVC pipes.  The smart coating, made from low-cost chemicals from oil refi more

  • High-rate magnesium rechargeable batteries move one step closer to realization

    Magnesium rechargeable batteries (MRBs), where high-capacity Mg metal is used as the anode material, are promising candidates for next-generation batteries due to their energy density, safety, and cost. However, the lack of high-performance cathode materials impedes their development. Like their lit more

  • How light activates MoS2 layers to become catalysts

    Thin films of molybdenum and sulfur belong to a class of materials that can be considered for use as photocatalysts. Inexpensive catalysts such as these are needed to produce hydrogen as a fuel using solar energy. However, they are still not very efficient as catalysts. A new instrument at the Helmh more

The Chemistry of Gunpowder

With the Fourth of July and American Independence Day on the horizon, a somehow topical post seemed in order. Having already examined the chemical compounds that give fireworks their colours in a previous graphic, I decided to examine another important firework component here: the first chemical exp more

Group 6 Elements

This latest graphic looks at the elements of Group 6. ‘Chalcogens’ is an IUPAC accepted name for Group 6 the term chalcogen itself comes from the greek word ‘chalcos‘, and roughly translates as ‘ore-former’. more

The Chemistry of Fireworks

The obvious place to start is the bangs of fireworks when they explode into bursts of colour. These can be produced simply by compacted gunpowder, which if suitably confined can give a decent result. However, it’s more common for the ignition of a specific explosive mixture to be utilised. This mixt more
