The way in which our cells convert food into fuel is shared by almost all living things - now scientists have discovered a likely reason why this is so widespread.
In 1952, the legendary British mathematician and cryptographer Alan Turing proposed a model that assumes formation of complex patterns through chemical interaction of two diffusing reagents. Russian scientists managed to ...
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has used a novel imaging capability - tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy - to map catalytic reactions at the nanoscale for the first time.
Yale University chemists have created a new process for synthesizing an organic, nitrogen-based compound that inhibits HIV.
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have figured out how a platinum catalyst works. Its remarkable properties are not just due to the platinum, the iron-oxide substrate beneath also plays a role.
Researchers at MIT and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a new type of catalyst that can be tuned to promote desired chemical reactions, potentially enabling the replacement of expensive and rare metals ...
With the goal of advancing the oil, mining and energy industries, as well as counteracting the emission of greenhouse gases, nanotechnologist Hector Barron Escobar designs more efficient and profitable nanomaterials.
The next big step forward in the quest for sustainable, more efficient energy is tantalizingly within reach thanks to research being led by UT's Joshua Sangoro.
esearchers at UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute have developed a dramatically advanced tool for analyzing how chemicals called nanocatalysts convert chemical reactions into electricity.
