New ammonia reaction could offer a sustainable source of nitrogen

A big goal in chemistry is to find a simple way to produce amines from ammonia and unsaturated hydrocarbons. Catalytic addition to activate and transfer ammonia would not give rise to any waste. Hence, the process would be ...

UN maps out decarbonization of polluting construction sector

The construction sector—the most polluting and difficult to decarbonize—must build less, use more sustainable materials and clean up conventional ones to slash its emissions, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

Fungi could be the key to sustainable fireproofing

Mycelium, an incredible network of fungal strands that can thrive on organic waste and in darkness, could be a basis for sustainable fireproofing. RMIT researchers are chemically manipulating its composition to harness its ...
