Switchable material could harness the power of the sun—even when it's not shining
It's an obvious truism, but one that may soon be outdated: The problem with solar power is that sometimes the sun doesn't shine.
Chemists achieve molecular first
(Phys.org) —Chemists from Trinity College Dublin have achieved a long-pursued molecular first by interlocking three molecules through a single point. Developing interlocked molecules is one of the greatest ...
(Phys.org) —Using water as fuel has been a recurrent theme of science fiction since the days of Jules Verne. A recent discovery, however, may bring it one step closer to science fact by mimicking the very ...
Chemists' work with small peptide chains may revolutionize study of enzymes and diseases
Chemists in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences have, for the first time, created enzyme-like activity using peptides that are only seven amino acids long.
Study on element californium could change ballgame on radioactive waste
(Phys.org) —Groundbreaking work by a team of chemists on a fringe element of the periodic table could change how the world stores radioactive waste and recycles fuel.
Researchers patent process that binds organic compounds to metal surfaces
Queen's University researchers Cathleen Crudden and Hugh Horton (Chemistry), along with students, postdoctoral fellows and other collaborators have developed a new process that allows organic compounds to bind to metal surfaces. ...
