Scientists observe the transition state in a chemical reaction on a catalyst's surface
For the first time, an international scientists' team observed the volatile intermediate stages which appear when carbon monoxide oxidises on a hot ruthenium surface, an ordinary catalyst. The scientists, ...
Using soft X-ray emission spectroscopy to reveal the behavior of electrons associated with charging and discharging
Researchers have used soft X-ray emission spectroscopy to reveal the detailed electronic structure of a cathode (positive electrode) material when charging and discharging a lithium-ion battery.
