Chemical Communications, known as ChemComm, is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It contains communications (short descriptions of new work requiring rapid publication) of significant work from across the chemical sciences. It also includes feature articles. From January 2012, ChemComm publishes 100 issues per year.
New research sheds light on photosynthesis and creation of solar fuel
Refined by nature over a billion years, photosynthesis has given life to the planet, providing an environment suitable for the smallest, most primitive organism all the way to our own species.
'Diamonds from the sky' approach turns CO2 into valuable products
Finding a technology to shift carbon dioxide (CO2 ), the most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity has long been a dream of many scientists and government officials. ...
How UEA research could help build computers from DNA
New research from the University of East Anglia could one day help build computers from DNA.
Trending science: Vitamin B3 may have been delivered from space
The results of laboratory experiments involving Vitamin B3 by a team of NASA researchers support a theory that the origin of life may have been assisted by a supply of 'biologically important molecules produced in space and ...
Affordable genetic diagnostic technique for target DNA analysis developed
Professor Hyun-Gyu Park of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has developed a technique to analyze various target DNAs using an aptamer, a ...
Insights into catalytic converters
Modern catalytic converters for the treatment of exhaust gases in vehicles with a combustion engine have largely contributed to reducing of pollutant emissions. By oxidation or reduction, i.e. the donation or acceptance of ...
Chemistry of seabed's hot vents could explain emergence of life
Hot vents on the seabed could have spontaneously produced the organic molecules necessary for life, according to new research by UCL chemists. The study shows how the surfaces of mineral particles inside hydrothermal vents ...
Scientists develop perfume which smells better the more you sweat
The first-ever perfume delivery system to ensure the more a person sweats, the better they will smell, has been developed by scientists at Queen's University Belfast.
Natural plant chemicals could help fight tooth decay, study shows
Oral care products containing a natural chemical that stops bacteria harming teeth could help prevent decay, a study suggests.
