A collaboration between scientists at Cambridge and UCL has led to the discovery of a new form of ice that more closely resembles liquid water than any other and may hold the key to understanding this most famous of liquids. Our discovery of MDA raises many questions on the very nature of liquid water and so understanding MDA-s precise atomic structure is very important Michael Davies The new form of ice is amorphous.

Researchers at UCL and the University of Cambridge have discovered a new type of ice that more closely resembles liquid water than any other known ices and that may rewrite our understanding of water and its many anomalies.

Analyzing the residue on vessels in a mummification workshop has given a team of researchers from LMU Munich and the University of fresh insights into how the ancient Egyptians embalmed the bodies of their dead.

The findings could provide a new way to control chemical reactions.

Assistant professor Scot Miller offers insight on the United Nations' most recent assessment of the Montreal Protocol, which offers good news on the restoration of the ozone layer.

An international team of scientists from the University of Luxembourg, Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) at TU Berlin and Google has now successfully developed a machine learning algorithm to tackle large and complex quantum systems. The article has been published in the renowned journal Science Advances.

Researchers in Freiburg and Bonn provide the first comprehensive mapping of the protein machineries in the mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell.

Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionized electronics and enabled an accelerating shift toward clean energy.

Unexpected resonance frequencies observed in reactions between two molecules A new study published today in Nature is changing our understanding of chemical reactions and overturning previous theoretical models by finding an unexpected resonance frequency during the reaction of two molecules.

Stacking light-emitting diodes instead of placing them side by side could enable fully immersive virtual reality displays and higher-resolution digital screens.

Researchers urge industry and the research community to explore electrification pathways to reduce chemical industry emissions.

Graphenano and the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) of the University of Valencia have developed the first battery cell without current collectors or metal terminals. The system, which instead uses graphene and carbon nanomaterials, paves the way for the manufacture of safer, lighter and more efficient batteries. Its application in the electric car, aviation or stationary storage sectors, among others, revolutionises the field of battery safety and efficiency.

Sterre Bakker defends her thesis at the department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry on January 27, 2023.
