New technique to create super-sponges is a game changer

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are unique micromaterial compounds consisting of a sponge-like network of metal ions or clusters linked together by organic linkers, and are able to store specific gas molecules in their pores. ...

Pushing the limits of 2-D supramolecules

Scientists at the University of South Florida have reached a new milestone in the development of two-dimensional supramolecules—the building blocks that make areas of nanotechnology and nanomaterial advancement possible.

Alcohols as carbon radical precursors

Alcohols play a pivotal role in organic synthesis because they are ubiquitous and can be used in a variety of well-established transformations. However, in C-C bond formation reactions, despite being central to organic synthesis, ...

Competing coexisting phases in two-dimensional water

On Earth, water is abundant substance, the cycle of evaporation - condensation - solidification (steam transitions - liquid - solid) falls within everyday experience. The physical properties of water and its phase diagram ...

Direct observation of bond formations

A collaboration between researchers from KEK, the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), RIKEN, and the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) used ...

Water molecules favor negative charges

(Phys.org) —In the presence of charged substances, H2O molecules favor associating with elements with a negative electrical charge rather than a positive electric charge. EPFL researchers have published a study on the subject ...
