How ionic: Scaffolding is in charge of calcium carbonate crystals
Nature packs away carbon in chalk, shells and rocks made by marine organisms that crystallize calcium carbonate. Now, research suggests that the soft, organic scaffolds in which such crystals form guide crystallization ...
'Predicted' zeolites may fuel efficient processes
(Phys.org)—Scientists at Rice University and the University of Minnesota have identified synthetic materials that may purify ethanol more efficiently and greatly improve the separation of long-chain hydrocarbons ...
New analysis explains collagen's force
Research combining experimental work and detailed molecular simulations has revealed, for the first time, the complex role that water plays in collagen—a protein that is a component of tendons, bone, skin ...
Solar cell polymers with multiplied electrical output
One challenge in improving the efficiency of solar cells is that some of the absorbed light energy is lost as heat. So scientists have been looking to design materials that can convert more of that energy ...
Research pair devise a way to make nylon precursor that is less harmful to the ozone layer
Study identifies metal organic framework candidates for methane storage, fuels hope for natural gas cars
Cars that run on natural gas are touted as efficient and environmentally friendly, but getting enough gas onboard to make them practical is a hurdle. A new study led by researchers at Rice University promises ...
Team opens new frontier of vast chemical 'space', makes dozens of new chemical entities
Chemists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have invented a powerful method for joining complex organic molecules that is extraordinarily robust and can be used to make pharmaceuticals, fabrics, dyes, ...
