Repellent research: Ship coatings to reduce fuel, energy costs
It can repel water, oil, alcohol and even peanut butter. And it might save the U.S. Navy millions of dollars in ship fuel costs, reduce the amount of energy that vessels consume and improve operational efficiency.
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is sponsoring work by Dr. Anish Tuteja, an ... more
Biocatalysts are a bridge to greener, more powerful chemistry
New research from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute is building a bridge from nature's chemistry to greener, more efficient synthetic chemistry.
Researchers in the lab of Alison Narayan analyzed biocatalysts evolved by nature for their effectiveness in a variety of syntheti ... more
Google provides open source library for quantum chemistry
Since physicists have been dealing with the theoretical description of molecules, the solving of quantum mechanical equations has been a major obstacle. This is supposed to be a thing of the past with the release of an open source based system. Google has introduced such a system to the pub ... more
