When purifying waste water, chemical reactions are used or it is subjected to elaborate filtering methods to remove salts and heavy metals. Now scientists in Saarbrücken are working on a desalination method which does not ...
Chemists at UC San Diego have developed a new tool that allows scientists for the first time to see, at the scale of five billionths of a meter, "nanoscale" mixing processes occurring in liquids.
For the first time, MIT chemists have measured the energy of the transition state of a chemical reaction—a fleeting, unstable state that is a reaction's point of no return.
Scientists in a lab used a powerful laser to re-create what might have been the original spark of life on Earth.
Tiny octopods catalyze bright ideas: Study shows plasmonic sensors and catalysts need not be mutually exclusive
Nanoscale octopods that do double duty as catalysts and plasmonic sensors are lighting a path toward more efficient industrial processes, according to a Rice University scientist.
Scientists at the Universities of Bristol and Newcastle have uncovered the secret of the 'Mona Lisa of chemical reactions' - in a bacterium that lives at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
For many living things, a roughly 24-hour internal clock governs the rhythms of life—everything from sleep in animals, to leaf opening in plants and reproduction in bread mold. Scientists have come to understand much about ...
A*STAR researchers have performed theoretical calculations to explain why semiconductor microspheres embedded with metal nanoparticles are so good at using sunlight to catalyze reactions.
Bombarding and stretching an important industrial catalyst opens up tiny holes on its surface where atoms can attach and react, greatly increasing its activity as a promoter of chemical reactions, according to a study by ...
