A Nagoya Institute of Technology group of researchers has developed a novel, easy to synthesize composite compound that enables the efficient use of solar energy to reduce carbon dioxide. The effort is to find sustainable methods of breaking down carbon dioxide in emissions. CO2 emissions from human activities have risen drastically over the last century […]

A University of Tsukuba researcher has introduced a new theory for superconductivity that can better explain the results of recent experiments with high-temperature superconductors. By focusing on the ‘Berry connection,’ this work may lead to energy distribution with much less electrical resistance. The scientist works at the Division of Quantum Condensed Matter Physics at the […]

Inspired by nature, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have created a novel material capable of capturing light energy. The new material provides a highly efficient artificial light-harvesting system with potential applications in photovoltaics and bioimaging. The research provides a foundation for overcoming the difficult challenges involved in the creation of hierarchical functional organic-inorganic hybrid materials. […]

University of Edinburgh scientists have devised a novel way of tackling the mounting issue of plastic pollution – by using bacteria to transform plastic waste into vanilla flavoring. Vanillin is the primary component of extracted vanilla beans and is responsible for the characteristic taste and smell of vanilla. The transformation could boost the circular economy, […]

University of Tokyo researchers used platinum (Pt) and aluminum compounds to create a catalyst which enables certain chemical reactions to occur more efficiently than ever before. The catalyst could significantly reduce energy usage in various industrial and pharmaceutical processes. It also allows for a wider range of sustainable sources to feed the processes, which could […]
