New way to boost catalyst activity

Catalysts are workhorses that help reactions occur. Put to work, they transform starting materials, such as fossil fuels, biomass or even waste, into products and fuels with minimal energy.

Creating sustainable material from waste

It's no secret that we need more sustainable materials if we hope to help the planet. Bio-derived materials are one potential option, but they must be economical if anyone is going to use them.

New atomic data portal

Even if you're one of the most precise physicists on the planet—as University of Delaware Professor Marianna Safronova is—you still will need collaborators whose skills complement your own and make new opportunities possible.

Using electricity to give chemistry a boost

Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a promising class of materials that have many applications as catalysts, sensors and for gas storage. Widely studied over the past two decades, MOFs are typically produced using chemical ...

Understanding cookiecutter sharks

For years, researchers studying marine life in the wild would occasionally come across animals—such as dolphins, swordfish, leatherback sea turtles, whales, white sharks and even humans—with oddly shaped plugs of tissue ...

Undersea rocks yield earthquake clues

Earthquakes shake and rattle the world every day. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has estimated the number of earthquakes at some half a million a year, with some 100,000 that can be felt, and about 100 that cause damage. ...
