Optimizing electric fields yields better catalysts

Industries rely on catalysts. These materials lessen the energy used in refining oil, manufacturing plastics, and much more. Catalysts can also mean less waste is produced. Better catalysts would benefit industries and the ...

Molecular wave of nanosized metal oxide catalyst

Metal oxides represent primary source of catalytic materials for a variety of industrial and research applications, either as an active phase or as a supporting phase. A mechanistic study has revealed the formation of catalytically ...

Mastering chemical recipes to make new materials

Mircea Dincă playfully describes his very serious work making new materials in MIT's Department of Chemistry much like being a kid mixing and matching Legos. A self-described molecular engineer, Dincă assembles new materials ...
