Chemists at the University of Bayreuth have developed a material where carbon dioxide (CO2) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, natural gas, or biogas, and thereby made available for CO2 recycling. The separation process is both energy efficient and cost-effective. In the journal Cell Reports Physical Science the researchers present the structure and […]

University of Rochester engineers and physicists have created a material that is superconducting at room temperature. The carbonaceous sulfur hydride exhibited superconductivity at about 58 degrees Fahrenheit and a pressure of about 39 million psi. This is the first time that superconducting material has been observed at room temperatures. Featured as the cover story in […]

A joint research team from POSTECH and Korea University has demonstrated a daytime radiative cooling material which exhibits lower temperatures than its surroundings even during the day. Now that autumn is here, there is a large temperature gap between day and night. This is due to the temperature inversion caused by radiative cooling on the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… UCLA scientists have developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces CO2 gas emissions  recycling  the CO2 while generating ethylene – a valuable chemical simultaneously. The Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering team demonstrated the new catalyst to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene, which […]

The team at the Max-Planck Institute for Chemistry (Mainz, Germany), the University of Chicago (USA), and the Soreq Nuclear Research Center (Yavne, Israel) used a variety of analytical methods to refine the phase diagrams for hydrogen sulfide in the H(3)S form and D(3)S, its deuterium analogue, in relation to pressure and temperature, and to shed […]
