A new way to automate sequences of chemical reactions

A team of researchers from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in Korea and the Polish Academy of Sciences has developed a new way to automate sequences of chemical reactions. In their paper published in the ...

Ecological power storage battery made of vanillin

Researchers at TU Graz have found a way to convert the aromatic substance vanillin into a redox-active electrolyte material for liquid batteries. The technology is an important step toward ecologically sustainable energy ...

Metal-ion breakthrough leads to new biomaterials

Metals such as iron and calcium play a crucial role inside the human body, so it's no surprise that bioengineers would like to integrate them into the soft, stretchy materials used to repair skin, blood vessels, lungs and ...

Researchers develop a new membraneless fuel cell

The research team of INRS Professor Mohamed Mohamedi has designed a green membraneless fuel cell that uses oxygen from the air. The results of this innovative microfluidic application—a first in Canada—were published ...

Understanding oxygen-reducing enzymes

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that plays a central role in the global carbon cycle. At the same time, it is an important energy source for us humans. About half of its annual production is made by microorganisms known ...

Oligomeric materials to enhance water splitting

Researchers from the Llobet group have developed a new molecular material made out of oligomers and used it as a catalyst in water oxidation, achieving unprecedented current densities for molecular catalysts. The paper "Water ...

Building walls that will make summer heat waves more bearable

With the summer heat becoming increasingly unbearable and prolonged due to climate change, the cooling load in the summertime has also been on the rise. Insulation is currently the primary solution for blocking heat from ...
