University of Central Florida chemistry Professor Fernando Uribe-Romo and his team of students has just found a way to trigger the process of photosynthesis in a synthetic material that also creates a clean way to produce fuel precursors. His team created a way to trigger a chemical reaction in a synthetic material called metal-organic frameworks […]

MIT researchers have for the first time developed a supercapacitor that uses no conductive carbon at all. The new supercapacitors could potentially produce more power than existing versions of this technology. Energy storage devices called supercapacitors have become a hot area of research, in part because they can be charged rapidly and deliver intense bursts […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers have developed a nickel-based metal organic framework to hold onto polysulfide molecules in the cathodes of lithium-sulfur batteries and extend the batteries’ life spans. A promising new battery chemistry is the lithium-sulfur battery, which can hold as much as four times more energy in a given mass than typical […]

Texas A&M University chemist Hong-Cai “Joe” Zhou in collaboration with Hae-Kwon Jeong and Perla B. Balbuena in the Department of Chemical Engineering, assemble MOF materials with profound potential for cleaner energy across the globe. The building blocks the group specializes in actually are a recently developed, increasingly versatile class of materials known as metal-organic frameworks […]

Nuclear energy production as practiced since the cold war days leaves a lot of nasty, radioactive products behind.  In the U.S. where regulatory leadership seeks to dismember the industry, discontinued efforts to recover and reuse worthwhile fuel, and has closed down the multi decade effort for a safe repository while no perceptible or credible effort […]
