Scientists serendipitously discover rare cluster compound

Scientists at Kyoto University's Institute for Cell-Material Sciences have discovered a novel cluster compound that could prove useful as a catalyst. Compounds, called polyoxometalates, that contain a large metal-oxide cluster ...

Selective membrane may cycle dual-ion batteries closer to reality

Lithium-ion batteries are relatively safe, long-lasting, fast charging and better for the environment than non-rechargeable batteries—right? Not quite. The rocking-chair mechanism that allows for commercial power storage ...

Sieving ions with a polymer membrane

Ion-sieving polymer membranes can perform with exquisite precision by gaining unprecedented control over pore size and uniformity within the membranes, KAUST researchers have shown.
