University of Sussex chemists have found a new use for the waste product of nuclear power. They are transforming an unused stockpile into a versatile compound which could be used to create valuable commodity chemicals as well as new energy sources. Depleted uranium (DU) is a radioactive by-product from the reaction process used to create […]

University of Nottingham School of Chemistry scientists have developed a recyclable system for converting carbon monoxide (CO) directly into more complicated organic molecules using depleted uranium.  This is a very large concept taking a bold step into making use of used uranium and making complex molecules – some are thinking it could be used to […]
