Scientists make droplets move on their own (10/21/2014)

Droplets are simple spheres of fluid, not normally considered capable of doing anything on their own. But now researchers have made droplets of alcohol move through water. In the future, such moving droplets may deliver medicines. ...> Full Article


Research aims to develop new, more efficient catalytic materials (10/20/2014)

In order to support the world's needs to make cheaper and more effective fuels, chemicals, polymers and more, new and more efficient catalytic materials and processes must be developed. A team of researchers, including several from Wayne State University, is tackling this problem with the help of a new grant from the National Science Foundation. ...> Full Article


Smart, eco-friendly new battery to solve problems (10/20/2014)

Smart, eco-friendly new battery to solve problemsPresent-day lithium batteries are efficient but involve a range of resource and environmental problems. Using materials from alfalfa (lucerne seed) and pine resin and a clever recycling strategy, Uppsala researchers have now come up with a highly interesting alternative. Their study will be presented soon in the scientific journal ChemSusChem. ...> Full Article

How to make stronger, 'greener' cement (10/18/2014)

Concrete is the world's most-used construction material, and a leading contributor to global warming, producing as much as one-tenth of industry-generated greenhouse-gas emissions. Now a new study suggests a way in which those emissions could be reduced by more than half -- and the result would be a stronger, more durable material. ...> Full Article


Solar cell compound probed under pressure (10/17/2014)

Solar cell compound probed under pressureGallium arsenide a semiconductor composed of gallium and arsenic is well known to have properties that promise practical applications. In the form of nanowires it has particular potential for use in solar cell manufacture and optoelectronics in many of the same applications that silicon is commonly used. But its natural semiconducting ability requires tuning to make it more desirable for use in manufacturing. New work offers a novel approach to such tuning. ...> Full Article


Longstanding bottleneck in crystal structure prediction solved (10/16/2014)

Longstanding bottleneck in crystal structure prediction solvedThe various patterns that atoms of a solid material can adopt, called crystal structures, can have a huge impact on its properties. Being able to accurately predict the most stable crystal structure for a material has been a longstanding challenge for scientists. Researchers calculated the lattice energy of benzene, a simple yet important molecule in pharmaceutical and energy research, to sub-kilojoule per mole accuracy -- a level of certainty that allows polymorphism to be resolved. ...> Full Article


Harvesting hydrogen fuel from the Sun using Earth-abundant materials (10/15/2014)

Harvesting hydrogen fuel from the Sun using Earth-abundant materialsToday, the journal Science published the latest development in Michael Grätzel's laboratory at EPFL: producing hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water. By combining a pair of solar cells made with a mineral called perovskite and low cost electrodes, scientists have obtained a 12.3 percent conversion efficiency from solar energy to hydrogen, a record using Earth-abundant materials as opposed to rare metals. ...> Full Article


2-D materials' crystalline defects key to new properties (10/14/2014)

Understanding how atoms 'glide' and 'climb' on the surface of 2-D crystals like tungsten disulphide may pave the way for researchers to develop materials with unusual or unique characteristics, according to an international team of researchers. ...> Full Article


Pressure mounts on FDA and industry to ensure safety of food ingredients (10/13/2014)

Confusion over a 1997 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rule that eases the way for food manufacturers to use ingredients 'generally regarded as safe,' or GRAS, has inspired a new initiative by food makers. Food safety advocates say the current GRAS process allows substances into the food supply that might pose a health risk, while industry defends its record. An article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) details what changes are on the table. ...> Full Article


'Funnel' attracts bonding partners to biomolecule (10/13/2014)

'Funnel' attracts bonding partners to biomoleculeWater is a ubiquitous solvent in all life sciences -- sometimes referred to as the 'matrix of life.' Contrary to earlier assumptions, it is not a passive witness of biochemical processes; rather, it participates in them actively. By influencing the movement of water molecules surrounding their binding pockets, proteins can create a type of 'funnel' in the surrounding water, which assists the bonding of certain binding partners that are solvated in water. ...> Full Article


Los Alamos researchers uncover properties in nanocomposite oxide ceramics for reactor fuel (10/12/2014)

Los Alamos researchers uncover properties in nanocomposite oxide ceramics for reactor fuelThe relationship between the termination chemistry and the dislocation structure of the interface offers potential avenues for tailoring transport properties and radiation damage resistance of oxide nanocomposites. ...> Full Article

Milestone in chemical studies of superheavy elements (10/10/2014)

Milestone in chemical studies of superheavy elementsAn international collaboration led by research groups from Mainz and Darmstadt, Germany, has achieved the synthesis of a new class of chemical compounds for superheavy elements at the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-based Research in Japan. For the first time, a chemical bond was established between a superheavy element -- seaborgium (element 106) in the present study -- and a carbon atom. ...> Full Article


Team improves solar-cell efficiency (10/10/2014)

Team improves solar-cell efficiencyNew light has been shed on solar power generation using devices made with polymers, thanks to a collaboration between scientists in the University of Chicago's chemistry department, the Institute for Molecular Engineering, and Argonne National Laboratory. Researchers identified a new polymer -- a type of large molecule that forms plastics and other familiar materials -- which improved the efficiency of solar cells. ...> Full Article
