Methanethiol, a potential new feedstock in C1 chemistry

Catalytic conversion of molecules with one carbon atom such as methane, carbon dioxide (CO2), methanol (CH3OH) and others into higher-value chemicals is of major importance for a viable and sustainable chemical industry. ...

Catalyst for sustainable gas synthesis

ETH researchers have developed a catalyst that converts CO2 and methane efficiently into synthesis gas—a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. This could potentially help to produce sustainable fuels and plastics

Improved catalytic processes for the synthesis of phenol

Researchers at the University of Electro-communications, Tokyo report a single-site catalytic platform with high selectivity for the single-step synthesis of phenol in a paper appeared in ACS catalysis.

Production of renewable gas from waste wood

KIT's researchers succeeded in producing renewable methane from a biomass-based synthesis gas mixture in their pilot plant for honeycomb methanation. The quality of this synthetic natural gas (SNG) is comparable to that of ...

Chemists produce and test novel solid oxide electrolysis cell

Researchers of the Institute of Chemical Engineering of Ural Federal University and the Institute of High-temperature Electrochemistry (Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have developed new electrochemical cells ...

Exhaust fumes as a resource

Chemists at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have developed a process in which nitrogen oxides generated during industrial processes can be used in the manufacture of colourants and medicines. Using ...
