Fuel cells are a promising technology for clean and efficient electrical power generation, but their cost, activity, and durability are key challenges to commercialization. Today's fuel cells use expensive platinum (Pt)-based ...
Synthetic organic chemistry consists of transforming existing molecules into new molecular structures or assemblies. These new molecular systems are then used in a myriad of ways in everyday life - in a wide range of sectors, ...
Research at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, finds that silver atoms can be crafted into a box-shaped nanocluster by careful selection of ligand molecules.
The second most-produced organic chemical in the world, propene is a key component of plastics found in consumer goods such as electronics, clothing and food packaging.
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich chemist Oliver Trapp has designed and synthesized a catalyst which flexibly molds the handedness of the reaction products with which it interacts.
One of the stumbling blocks that has held back more widespread adaptation of certain forms of green energy has been the higher cost associated with first converting to them.
Waseda University researchers have developed a new method for producing hydrogen that is fast, irreversible, and takes place at much lower temperatures using less energy. This innovation is expected to contribute to the spread ...
A nanosize squeeze can significantly boost the performance of platinum catalysts that help generate energy in fuel cells, according to a new study by Stanford scientists.
A new research, affiliated with UNIST has presented a novel strategy for non-precious metal catalyst that can replace rare and expensive platinum(Pt)-based catalyst, currently used in hydrogen fuel cell.
Palladium-catalyzed organic reactions, such as Sonogashira cross-coupling, may be made more efficient and substrate-tolerant as a result of new findings at A*STAR.
