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 ...

New catalyst outshines platinum for producing hydrogen

Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, packs a powerful punch. And because it contains no carbon, it produces only water when used as a fuel. But on Earth, hydrogen most often exists in combination with other ...

Electrolysis breakthrough could solve the hydrogen conundrum

Hydrogen gas is the perfect green fuel—it can be extracted from water and is non-polluting. But although hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, it doesn't naturally occur in large quantities as a gas on ...
