A breakthrough in the electrooxidation of propylene

A research team led by Prof. Geng Zhigang from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) designed a molecular catalyst that can undergo dynamically reversible interconversion for the electrooxidation of propylene ...

Drug industry's carbon impact could be cut by half

In a first-of-its-kind analysis, Cornell researchers and partners at the Clinton Health Access Initiative found that pharmaceutical producers could reduce their environmental impact by roughly half by optimizing manufacturing ...

New nanoparticle source generates high-frequency light

High-frequency light is useful. The higher the frequency of light, the shorter its wavelength—and the shorter the wavelength, the smaller the objects and details the light can be used to see.

Kangaroo fecal microbes could reduce methane from cows

Baby kangaroo feces might help provide an unlikely solution to the environmental problem of cow-produced methane. A microbial culture developed from the kangaroo feces inhibited methane production in a cow stomach simulator ...
