Galaxy's snacking habits revealed
A team of Australian and Spanish astronomers have caught a greedy galaxy gobbling on its neighbours and leaving crumbs of evidence about its dietary past.
Could we live on Jupiter?
NASA and Elon Musk have plans to get your ass to Mars.
Towards the ultimate model of water
Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), IBM and the University of Edinburgh have developed the first conceptually simple but broadly applicable model for water.
Artificial photosynthesis: New, stable photocathode with great potential
A German team has developed a new composite photocathode for generating hydrogen using sunlight. The photocathode consists of a thin film of chalcopyrite produced by HZB/PVcomB coated with a newly developed ...
Self-propelling particles mimic organisms' upstream moves
Scientists have created microbe-sized beads that can utilize energy in the environment to self-propel upstream by purely physical means.
Producing hydrogen cheaply through simplified electrolysis
A simplified and reliable device developed at EPFL should enable hydrogen production at low cost. Researchers were able to perform water electrolysis without using the expensive membrane placed between the ...
Micromotors for energy generation
Hydrogen is considered to be the energy source of the future: the first vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells are already on the market. However, the problem of hydrogen storage has not been solved in a ...
Researchers develop a novel organic device for obtaining hydrogen from water and sunlight
Hydrogen has great potential as a fuel. Researchers at the Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Devices Group at the Universitat Jaume I have developed an organic device reduces water into hydrogen using only ...
A 'frozen reaction' as key to eco-friendly chemical catalysis
Enzymes are naturally existing biocatalysts of great potential for application in sustainable chemistry. Yet, controlling enzyme reactions at atomic level is still a challenge in biology. Scientists at the ...
Fastest hydrogen battery ever stepping stone to hydrogen car?
Can cars run on formic acid? They just might one day, after what physical chemist Georgy Filonenko discovered in his dissertation. He developed a catalyst in which hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2) can form ...
How does an enzyme detoxify the cells of living beings?
Scientists use neutrons to shed light on the reduction of H2O2 to water by CcP, concluding that the process which is focus of a long-standing and highly contentious question need to be reassessed.
