Water treatment: Removing hormones with sunlight

Organic pollutants such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and hormones, even at nanoscale concentrations, contaminate drinking water in a way that poses significant risks to humans, animals and the environment. In particular, ...

New catalyst for lower carbon dioxide emissions

If the CO2 content of the atmosphere is not to increase any further, carbon dioxide must be converted into something else. However, as CO2 is a very stable molecule, this can only be done with the help of special catalysts. ...

Progress in the low-cost electrochemical synthesis of ammonia

Ammonia (NH3) is mass-produced for use in the agricultural, pharmaceutical, and sustainable energy sectors. However, its conventional synthesis methods are environmentally unfriendly, so we need alternatives! Recently, Scientists ...

Scientists develop Z-scheme catalyst for contaminants in water

In recent years, rapid industrialization has caused increasingly severe environmental pollution. Antibiotics and microbiological contamination in water have become major threats to human health and critical risks to ecosystem ...
