Carbon dioxide to methanol conversion

NUS chemists have developed a highly efficient nanostructured catalyst based on zinc and silver that can convert carbon dioxide, an environmental pollutant and greenhouse gas, to methanol for use as chemical feedstock and ...

Study paves way for healthier and more robust eggs

The results of a study recently published in the prestigious international journal Science Advances have enabled researchers to better understand the role of eggshells in embryo development and hatching. An eggshell is made ...

Organic nanoparticles, more lethal to tumours

Radiotherapy used in cancer treatment is a promising treatment method, albeit rather indiscriminate. Indeed, it affects neighbouring healthy tissues and tumours alike. Researchers have thus been exploring the possibilities ...

New synthesis method produces novel nanostructures from carbon

They are tiny and comprise spherical, sheet-like or fibrous particles. And they consist chiefly of the chemical element carbon. The talk here is about unusual carbon nanostructures that scientists at the Max Planck Institute ...

Cheap solar cells made from shrimp shells

The materials chitin and chitosan found in the shells are abundant and significantly cheaper to produce than the expensive metals such as ruthenium, which is similar to platinum, that are currently used in making nanostructured ...
