Nanoparticles

Researchers at Ruhr-Univeritat Bochum in Germany and University of New South Wales in Australia are onto converting CO2 into byproducts. As per these researchers, it can be converted to valuable resources. Basically, they used the principle of enzymes where the chemicals use multi-step reactions to produce complex molecules. When mechanism is transposed on metallic nanoparticles, carbon dioxide produced ethanol and propanol.  And, it is important to note here that are

Fuel Cells

Substances with hydrogen are critical for industries. They are prominent source of energy and thus have important applications. As a result, scientists have studied how hydrogen behaves in different substances. Further, they observed how the element behaves in different forms of water – liquid, supercooled, and frozen. The aim of the research to understand the application of hydrogen for eco-friendly fuel cells. Further, the researchers claim that they have not

Artificial Leaf

According to a latest scientific development, an artificial leaf can help in the production of clean gas. This gas currently derived from burning fossil fuels. However, with this development, an artificial leaf that uses only water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight, can produce the gas. The development can be taken a step further to eventually develop a sustainable liquid fuel for petrol. This carbon-neutral device has set a new standard in

Hydrogen

NUS chemical scientists have been successful in developing a carbon-conjugated covalent organic framework. This framework will allow the production of hydrogen gas from water. Visible light drives the catalytic process. Hydrogen gas is increasingly becoming a key storage medium for the applications of sustainable energy. Scientists are now showing great interest in producing hydrogen gas from decomposed water using sunlight. However, this conversion of hydrogen gas from water is not

Heart Failure

Currently, there is no drug available for treating heart attacks or preventing heart failure. However, that may change with the latest discovery by the researchers at the University of Guelph. The pioneering research led by Prof. Tami Martino claim that they have found a potential drug to prevent heart failure. Prof. Martino, who works at the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Guelph, believes that this new drug
