Mechanism for aprotic sodium-air batteries
Researchers provide evidence for a non-enzymatic pathway to produce paracaseolide A
Video: Mechanisms of mechanochemistry
The solvent-free mechanochemical synthesis of a metal-organic framework, ZIF-8, was followed in real-time by in situ X-ray diffraction monitoring. Formation of the open framework is recognized by the appearance of new diffraction ...
Scientists devise method for rescuing genetic material from formaldehyde-treated tissue samples
Each year, millions of tissue samples are collected from cancer patients and preserved in formaldehyde. The chemical "freezes" the cancer cells within the sample, allowing physicians to look at the disease and plan a specific ...
Toward solid-state molecular circuitry: Molecular shuttle within a metal-organic framework
Using computational methods, scientists tailor and adapt proteins to mine uranium from seawater
Researchers developed a protein-based, genetically encodable system that can bind water-soluble uranium with exceedingly high affinity and selectivity. This also is the first time that a protein has been designed with these ...
Spintronics just got faster
In a tremendous boost for spintronic technologies, EPFL scientists have shown that electrons can jump through spins much faster than previously thought.
Improving the selective extraction of spent uranium in nuclear waste clean-up
Driven by the need to find ways of separating, recycling and reducing nuclear waste, chemists at The University of Nottingham are developing our understanding of how uranium interacts with elements from around the periodic ...
Chemists discover key reaction mechanism behind the highly touted sodium-oxygen battery
Chemists at the University of Waterloo have discovered the key reaction that takes place in sodium-air batteries that could pave the way for development of the so-called holy grail of electrochemical energy storage.
