Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University Professor Stephan Irle of the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (WPI-ITbM) at Nagoya University and co-workers at Kyoto University, Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL), and Chinese research institutions have revealed through theoretical simulations that the molecular mechanism of carbon nanotube (CNT) growth and hydrocarbon combustion actually share many similarities. In studies using acetylene molecules (ethyne; C2H2,...

Metal-organic framework captures saturated hydrocarbons, letting pure unsaturated gases through A new type of hybrid material developed at the University of California, Berkeley, could help oil and chemical companies save energy and money — and lower their environmental impacts — by eliminating an energy-intensive gas-separation process. Today, to separate hydrocarbon gas mixtures into the pure chemicals needed to make plastics, refineries "crack" crude oil at high...

A team of researchers at Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering have discovered that individual atoms can catalyze industrially important chemical reactions such as the hydrogenation of acetylene, offering potentially significant economic and environmental benefits. Hydrogenation — the addition of hydrogen atoms to an organic compound — is critical to the food, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Hydrogenation requires the presence of...

The century-old challenge of transporting acetylene may have been solved in principle by a team of scientists working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). A NIST research team has figured out* why a recently discovered material can safely store at low pressure up to 100 times as much of the volatile chemical as can be done with conventional methods.The team has probed the atomic-level workings of a metal-organic framework (MOF), a lattice-like structure made of copper...
