Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of California – Berkeley chemists have come up with an efficient and less expensive technique for removing CO2 from natural gas plant emissions. The technique could be tweaked for higher output plants that use coal. The chemists took a magnesium-based metal-organic framework and added a tetraamine that catalyzes a CO2 polymer easily removed […]

An Oregon State University led international research collaboration has taken an important step toward the commercially viable manufacture of biobutanol, an alcohol whose strong potential as a fuel for gasoline-powered engines could pave the path away from fossil fuels. The key breakthrough is the development of a new metal organic framework, or MOF, that can […]

A Northwestern University research team has designed and synthesized a new material with ultrahigh porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell-powered vehicles. These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-producing fossil fuels. The material is a type of a metal-organic framework (MOF) that can store significantly […]

The team’s study paper has been published in the journal Nature Communications. The press release […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… American Institute of Physics researchers have looked to lithium sulfur batteries because of sulfur’s high theoretical capacity and energy density to develop higher capacity batteries. Lithium ion batteries aren’t keeping up with energy demands from higher power electronic devices, electric vehicles and smart electric grids. To develop higher capacity batteries, researchers have looked to […]
