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 […]

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 […]

The photosensitizer is a compound that promotes chemical reactions in the presence of light. It has many potential applications for improving the efficiency of modern technologies ranging from electricity-producing solar panels to cell phones. The new chemical photosensitizer compound created by researchers at West Virginia University could change the future for renewable energy. The researchers’ […]

A team of University of Minnesota researchers has discovered new technology that can speed up chemical reactions 10,000 times faster than the current reaction rate limit. These findings could increase the speed and lower the cost of thousands of chemical processes used in producing fertilizers, foods, fuels, plastics, and more. The team’s research paper has […]

Stanford University scientists are another step toward building a better battery doing long shifts at the helm of a highly sophisticated microscope recording chemical reactions at near-atomic-scale resolution. The researchers are camped out with one of the most advanced microscopes in the world to capture an unimaginably small reaction in the Dionne lab 18 feet […]
