A catalyst that mimics the z-scheme of photosynthesis
A team of chemists from the University of Kentucky and the Institute of Physics Research of Mar del Plata in Argentina has just reported a way to trigger a fundamental step in the mechanism of photosynthesis, providing a process with great potential for developing new technology to reduce c ... more
Hafnia dons a new face
It's a material world, and an extremely versatile one at that, considering its most basic building blocks -- atoms -- can be connected together to form different structures that retain the same composition.
Diamond and graphite, for example, are but two of the many polymorphs of carbon, mea ... more
University of Kentucky physicist discovers new 2-D material that could upstage graphene
A new one atom-thick flat material that could upstage the wonder material graphene and advance digital technology has been discovered by a physicist at the University of Kentucky working in collaboration with scientists from Daimler in Germany and the Institute for Electronic Structure and ... more
