Structural determination of complex anion materials

Solid-state materials are widely used in semiconductors, phosphors, and batteries, and have become an indispensable part of modern life. Substitution of elements in these complex composite materials is a popular technique ...

Simulations provide map to treasure trove of fluorinated compounds

Computer simulations are most often used as a guide so chemists can more efficiently work out the exact details of a general reaction idea they have in mind—much like a compass helps guide an explorer efficiently to a destination ...

New bioremediation material can clean 'forever chemicals'

A novel bioremediation technology for cleaning up per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, chemical pollutants that threaten human health and ecosystem sustainability, has been developed by Texas A&M AgriLife researchers. ...

Porous crystals bind fluorine-containing greenhouse gases

Emissions of greenhouse gases contribute significantly to global warming. Not only carbon dioxide (CO2) but also fluorine-containing gases—including so-called per- or polyfluorinated hydrocarbons, or PFCs—have a significant ...

Manganese makes its mark in drug synthesis

Just because you've solved a standing chemistry challenge doesn't mean you can't make it better. Rice University scientists had that in mind when they set out to improve their technique to make a common building block for ...

Researchers observe new isotope of fluorine

Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis reported the first observations of a new form of fluorine, the isotope 13F, described in the journal Physical Review Letters.

Using a radical to break C-F bonds one at a time

A team of researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China and the University of California has found a way to use radicals to break C-F bonds one at a time when working with trifluoroacetamides and acetates. ...
