Radical chemistry enables straightforward synthesis of ethers

Since as far back as the 1850s, synthesizing ethers has involved the same fundamental chemistry. Now, researchers from Japan have expanded the synthetic toolkit for ethers—by using cheap reagents and easy procedures.

Uncovering exotic molecules of potential astrochemical interest

Looking at the night sky, one's thoughts might be drawn to astrochemistry. What molecules are found in the vast spaces between the stars? Would we see the same molecules that surround us here on Earth? Or would some of them ...

New insights into the global silicon cycle

An international team of researchers has learned more about the global silicon cycle by studying ancient soil samples in Australia. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their study of soil ...

New aluminum hydroxide stable at extremely high pressure

A new hydrous phase, ε-AlOOH, was observed to be stable at pressures above 200 GPa. The stability of ε-AlOOH at extremely high pressures may affect the modeling results of the internal structure and deep water circulation ...
