Chemists at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) have now got one step closer to artificial photosynthesis with a new structure of a ruthenium catalyst. Developing the necessary efficient catalysts and associated dyes is a focal area of research at the Chair of Professor Frank Würthner at the University of Würzburg’s Institute of Organic Chemistry. Two of Professor […]

University of New South Wales (UNSW) engineers have achieved the world’s highest efficiency using flexible solar cells that are non-toxic and cheap to make. They expect that ‘Zero-energy’ buildings – which generate as much power as they consume – are now much closer to practical reality. So far the promise of ‘zero-energy’ buildings been held […]

Scientists from the University of Valencia (UV) in Spain have identified a new family of materials with promising applications in solid-state cooling. The team has published their discovery in the Nanoletters journal. The study establishes the relationship between external mechanical tension and ionic transport in ion conductors using molecular dynamics (a computer simulation method for […]
