Chemist creates cheap catalysts for the production of vanillin

A chemist from RUDN University has created cheap and effective catalysts for the production of vanillin using spinel nanoparticles with copper oxide nanoparticles. Hydrogen peroxide was used as an oxidizing agent. The method ...

Researchers find a way to harness the entire spectrum of sunlight

Scientists for the first time have developed a single molecule that can absorb sunlight efficiently and also act as a catalyst to transform solar energy into hydrogen, a clean alternative to fuel for things like gas-powered ...

Visualizing chemical reactions with infrared thermography

Infrared (IR) thermography is used to determine the temperature of organisms and objects with high precision without interfering with the system. A single image taken with an IR camera can capture the same amount of information ...

Catalytic protocells get zingy

Artificial cells capable of oxygen gas production and chemical signalling have been prepared using a combination of synthetic and biological catalysts through an international collaboration between the University of Bristol ...

Chemist creates catalyst to produce anti-mosquito substances

A chemist from RUDN University has developed a catalyst for the production of eugenol acetate, a substance that destroys the larvae of mosquitoes transmitting dangerous diseases. The article was published in the journal Materials.

Chemist develops flower-like catalysts from graphene

A RUDN chemist and colleagues from Iran have developed a new strategy for producing hollow, porous catalysts for the Heck coupling reaction. These catalysts are characterized by a flower-like structure. They consist of graphene, ...
