Plant discovery opens frontiers

University of Adelaide researchers have discovered a biochemical mechanism fundamental to plant life that could have far-reaching implications for the multibillion dollar biomedical, pharmaceutical, chemical and biotechnology ...

Some catalysts contribute their own oxygen for reactions

Chemical reactions that release oxygen in the presence of a catalyst, known as oxygen-evolution reactions, are a crucial part of chemical energy storage processes, including water splitting, electrochemical carbon dioxide ...

New math model examines mixing fronts in porous media flows

Analyzing what happens where interfaces meet and mix is essential toward understanding and controlling fundamental mechanisms in both natural and industrial systems. By considering the reaction front of heterogeneous fluid ...

Scientists ignite aluminum water mix

(Phys.org) —Don't worry, that beer can you're holding is not going to spontaneously burst into flames, but under the right circumstances aluminum does catch fire, and the exact mechanism that governs how, has long been ...

Reaction performs differently in different size pores

(Phys.org) —Predictive models of biogeochemical interactions in soils are more accurate and scalable if they consider the reaction chemistry that occurs in distinct soil pore structures, or domains, according to a trio ...

Exotic isotopes step on the scale

Elements heavier than iron are believed to have formed in supernovae or merging neutron stars through a series of complex nuclear reactions. Nuclear physicists are working to recreate these reactions by performing simulations, ...
