New inorganic aromatic ion

(Phys.org)—Aromatic molecules are a staple of organic chemistry. Aromatics, like benzene, have a unique pi-electron character that makes the ring structure exceptionally stable. While aromatics are typically reserved for ...

New technique puts chemistry breakthroughs on the fast track

Scientists can now take that "a-ha" moment to go with a method Princeton University researchers developed — and successfully tested — to speed up the chances of an unexpected yet groundbreaking chemical discovery.

New catalyst to create chemical building blocks from biomass

University of Tokyo researchers have developed a novel selective catalyst that allows the creation of several basic chemicals from biomass instead of petroleum. This discovery may lead to the use of plant biomass as a basic ...
