Missing piece inspires new look at Mars puzzle
(PhysOrg.com) -- Experiments prompted by a 2008 surprise from NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander suggest that soil examined by NASA's Viking Mars landers in 1976 may have contained carbon-based chemical building blocks ...
Oxygen in place of chlorine: Towards a more environmentally friendly propylene oxide synthesis
(PhysOrg.com) -- Propylene oxide is an important bulk chemical that is used primarily in the production of polyurethane plastics. Currently, propylene oxide is usually made from propylene (propene) in a process that uses ...
Salt and Paper Battery May One Day Replace Lithium Batteries
When atoms getting close: Shortest carbon-chlorine single bond detected
The description of compounds and interactions between atoms is one of the basic objectives of chemistry. Admittedly, chemical bonding models, which describe these properties very well, already exist. However, any deviation ...
The core of corrosion
(Phys.org) —Anyone who has ever owned a car in a snowy town – or a boat in a salty sea – can tell you just how expensive corrosion can be.
Even low-level PCBs change bird songs
It may not kill them outright, but low-level PCB (polychlorinated biphenyls) contamination disrupts how some birds sing their songs, report Cornell researchers.
Splitting the sea: Turning ocean water into hydrogen fuel
