Researchers at Kyushu University in Japan can now provide new insights into the reactions occurring in solid-oxide fuel cells. By using realistic simulations with atomic-scale models of the electrode active site based on microscope observations, instead of the simplified and idealized atomic structures employed in previous studies, a better understanding of how the structures in […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers are working on membranes that could separate chemicals without using an energy-intensive distillation processes. Chemical manufacturers consume a massive amount of energy each year separating and refining feedstocks to make a wide variety of products including biofuels, gasoline, plastics and food. In a effort to reduce the amount of energy […]

University of Houston (UH) researchers have reported the discovery of a new material thermoelectric that works efficiently at room temperature. The new material requires almost no costly tellurium, a major component of the current state-of-the-art material. The widespread adoption of thermoelectric devices that can directly convert electricity into thermal energy for cooling and heating has […]
