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 […]

Queen Mary University of London researchers have discovered how a pinch of salt can be used to drastically improve the performance of lithium ion batteries. They added salt to the inside of a supermolecular sponge and then baked it at a high temperature transforming the sponge into a carbon-based structure. Surprisingly, the salt reacted with […]

An international team of researchers, affiliated with Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have developed a novel hydrogen isotope separation system based on a porous metal organic framework (MOF). The isolation of deuterium from a physico-chemically almost identical isotopic mixture has been a seminal challenge in modern separation technology. This MOF system, […]

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a new highly permeable carbon dioxide capture membrane. The new membrane could lead to more efficient ways of separating carbon dioxide from power plant exhaust, preventing the greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere and be available for recycling. The researchers […]

Researchers have developed a new Metal Organic Framework (MOF) that might provide a better and cheaper method for separating the different hexane molecules of gasoline.  The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) measurements help to explain how the MOF works. The new MOF was created in the laboratory of Jeffrey Long, professor of chemistry […]
