Copper stearate promising for heavy oil oxidation, study says

Copper salts have found place in many industries from pharmaceuticals to agriculture, but they are rarely seen in petrochemistry and petroleum extraction. Now, Kazan Federal University scientists have showed that copper stearate ...

Electrons losing weight

The measured mass of electrons in solids is always larger than the value predicted by theory. The reason for this is that theoretical calculations do not account properly for various interactions with other electrons or lattice ...

Chemists ID catalytic 'key' for converting CO2 to methanol

Capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) and converting it to useful chemicals such as methanol could reduce both pollution and our dependence on petroleum products. So scientists are intensely interested in the catalysts that facilitate ...

The next generation of carbon monoxide nanosensors

The detection of carbon monoxide (CO) in the air is a vital issue, as CO is a poisonous gas and an environmental pollutant. CO typically derives from the incomplete combustion of carbon-based fuels, such as cooking gas and ...
