Technical University of Munich (TUM) researchers have now managed to significantly reduce the temperature and energy requirements of a key step in the biofuel production chemical process with reactions taking place inside zeolite crystals. But fuel from waste material? It is possible. So far, converting organic waste to fuel has not been economically viable. Excessively […]

University of Adelaide in Australia scientists have a new process for carbon neutral fuel with the development of a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air into synthetic natural gas in a ‘clean’ process using solar energy. The research undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO could make viable […]

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have identified a nickel oxide compound as an unconventional but promising candidate material for high-temperature superconductivity. The project combined crystal growth, X-ray spectroscopy and computational theory. The team successfully synthesized single crystals of a metallic trilayer nickelate compound, a feat the researchers believe to be a first. John Mitchell, an Argonne […]

Theorists at Caltech used quantum mechanics to predict what happens at atomic scales, while experimentalists at the Berkeley Lab used X-ray studies to analyze the steps in a chemical reaction returning CO2 to a fuel. The research was started when a carbon dioxide experiment didn’t match with what theorists predicted, so the researchers went back […]

University of Turku scientists in Finland have created a synthetic material based on the natural hackmanite mineral which produces broad spectrum white light in lamps. The hackmanite created by the Inorganic Materials Chemistry research group is a low-cost material emitting luminescence closer to sunlight than that of the currently used lanthanides. The hackmanite developed by […]
