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 ...

New function for plant enzyme could lead to green chemistry

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a new function in a plant enzyme that could have implications for the design of new chemical catalysts. The enzyme catalyzes, or ...

New catalyst method promises better use of syngas, coal

The world's first project to industrially synthesize 25 kt/a of higher alcohols from syngas passed a continuous 72-hour catalyst performance test on 3rd November, 2019 in Yulin, Shaanxi province, china.

Light at the end of the nanotunnel for future catalysts

Using a new type of nanoreactor, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have mapped catalytic reactions on individual metallic nanoparticles. Their work could improve chemical processes, and lead to better ...
