Promise green hydrogen may not always be fulfilled

Chemistry - Innovation

Kiane de Kleijne examined not only the benefits of green hydrogen, but also the emissions associated with producing and transporting green hydrogen. Green hydrogen often, but certainly not always, leads to CO2 gains. This claim is based on research published in Nature Energy by Kiane de Kleijne from Radboud University and Eindhoven University of Technology.

An alternative way to manipulate quantum states

Physics - Chemistry

Researchers at ETH Zurich have shown that quantum states of single electron spins can be controlled by currents of electrons whose spins are evenly aligned. In the future, this method could be used in electronic circuit elements.

Electric fields catalyse graphene’s energy and computing prospects

Materials Science - Chemistry

Researchers at the National Graphene Institute have made a groundbreaking discovery that could revolutionise energy harnessing and information computing.

Enzymes Instead of Cyanide: Researchers Develop Biocatalytic Process for Nitrile Production

Life Sciences - Chemistry

A research team from TU Graz and the Czech Academy of Sciences has used two enzymes to eliminate the need for highly toxic cyanide in the production of nitriles.

Golden Ball Mills as Green Catalysts

Chemistry - Environment

Less waste, mild reaction conditions, and no harmful solvents - only a very thin layer of gold is necessary to sustainably convert alcohols into aldehydes through mechanochemistry.

Scientists solve century-old chemistry riddle

When two solutions of oppositely charged polymers (polyelectrolytes) are mixed, phase separation occurs leading to the formation of a polymer-rich phase and a supernatant phase. The precise distribution of all components, that ispolyelectrolytes and counterions, had not yet been determined. Researchers at the University of Twente can now measure quantitatively exactly where these components are distributed using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.

Intricate processes in photosynthesis decoded using advanced electron microscopy technique

An international team of researchers visualises atomic interactions in the protein structure called photosystem II and thus uncovers fundamental biochemical processes.
