Gasification goes green
Rice's low-temp photocatalyst could slash the carbon footprint for syngas Rice University engineers have created a light-powered nanoparticle that could shrink the carbon footprint of a major segment of the chemical industry. The particle, tiny spheres of copper dotted with single atoms of ruthenium, is the key component in a green process for making syngas, or synthesis gas, valuable chemical feedstock that's used to make fuels, fertilizer and many other products.

Breathing? Thank volcanoes, tectonics and bacteria
Study points to one cause for several mysteries linked to breathable oxygen Earth's breathable atmosphere is key for life, and a new study suggests that the first burst of oxygen was added by a spate of volcanic eruptions brought about by tectonics. The study by geoscientists at Rice University offers a new theory to help explain the appearance of significant concentrations of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere about 2.5 billion years ago, something scientists call the Great Oxidation Event (GOE).
