Kanazawa University scientists have developed a method to sort molecules of carbon monoxide from carbon dioxide. This development may prove very helpful in recycling CO2 and expanding the field of producing alternative fuels. So, how do you separate carbon dioxide from carbon monoxide? One way, showcased in a new study from the Kanazawa scientists published […]

The team’s study paper has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. It likely […]

A pair of new Ohio State University studies offers a possible solution to water scarcity, inspired by nature. Humans can get by in the most basic of shelters, can scratch together a meal from the most humble of ingredients. But we can’t survive without clean water. And in places where water is scarce – the […]

Scientists at Stanford University have designed an electrocatalytic mechanism that works like a mammalian lung to convert water into fuel. The research has been published in the journal Joule, showing how it could help existing clean energy technologies run more efficiently. The act of inhaling and exhaling is so automatic for most organisms that it […]

University of Massachusetts Lowell is part of a research team that is taking the technology of manipulating light in a new direction. The research led to breakthroughs such as super-high resolution imaging. Scientists have long known that synthetic materials – called metamaterials – can manipulate electromagnetic waves such as visible light to make them behave […]
