If we could make plant food from nitrogen the way nature does, we'd have a much greener method for manufacturing fertilizer — a process that requires such high temperatures and pressures that it consumes about 1.5 percent of the world's energy. Now scientists working at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have taken an important step towards understanding how nature performs this trick, by identifying a key atom that researchers had sought for more than a...

For the past 100 years, the Haber-Bosch process has been used to convert atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia, which is essential in the manufacture of fertilizer. Despite the longstanding reliability of the process, scientists have had little understanding of how it actually works. But now a team of chemists, led by Patrick Holland of the University of Rochester, has new insight into how the ammonia is formed. Their findings are published in the latest issue of Science. Holland calls...

In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
