Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Tokyo scientists have invented a new kind of concrete could reduce emissions from the construction industry. Called calcium carbonate concrete it’s made from waste concrete and carbon dioxide from the air or recycled industrial exhaust gases. It shows promise as a future construction material, especially in places where natural resources are limited. […]

As a general rule, most catalyst materials deteriorate during repeated catalytic cycles – they age. One example increasing its performance is the mineral erythrite, a mineral compound comprising cobalt and arsenic oxides. Erythrite lends […]

University of Michigan researchers have used machine learning to predict how the compositions of metal alloys and metal oxides affect their electronic structures. The finding could help pave the way toward cleaner fuels and a more sustainable chemical industry. The electronic structure is key to understanding how the material will perform as a mediator, or […]

The chip will let scientists study enzymes faster and more comprehensively than ever before. For much of human history, animals and plants were perceived to follow a different set of rules than […]

Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reported that they have made a new catalyst that works with either heat or electricity. Based on nickel atoms, the catalyst accelerates a reaction for turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide – the first step in making fuels and useful chemicals from […]
