Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) scientists have been able to observe the smallest details of hydrogen production with the synthetic mineral pentlandite. This makes it possible to develop strategies for the design of robust and cost-effective catalysts for hydrogen production. The working groups of Prof. Wolfgang Schuhmann and Dr. Ulf-Peter Apfel from the RUB and the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Boston College researchers have applied a ‘water-in-salt’ electrolyte that enables stable operation of a lithium-air battery, offers superior long cycle lifetimes and presents a platform that could help lithium-ion batteries achieve their full potential. This news finally comes after more than two decades of research where improvements to lithium-ion batteries have stalled short of […]

Sandia National Laboratories and University of New Mexico researchers have designed a series of nanoscopic membranes made of water saturated by an enzyme that empties coal smoke of CO2 more cheaply and efficiently than any known technology. The enzyme the team found to make the biologically inspired membrane is one naturally developed over millions of […]

University of Notre Dame researchers have developed a renewable energy approach for synthesizing ammonia. Ammonia is crucial for the world’s agricultural production because its an essential nitrogen component of fertilizers that support the world’s food and fuel production needs. The industrial Haber-Bosch process developed in the early 1900s for producing ammonia relies on non-renewable fossil […]

National University of Singapore (NUS) scientists have developed an economical and industrially viable strategy to produce graphene. The new technique addresses the long-standing challenge of an efficient process for large-scale production of graphene, and offers production potential for sustainable synthesis of the material. The research was conducted in collaboration with Fudan University and the findings […]
