Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Computer simulations conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could help scientists make sense of a recently observed and puzzling wrinkle in one of nature’s most important chemical processes. It turns out that calcium carbonate—the ubiquitous compound that is a major component of seashells, limestone, concrete, antacids and myriad other naturally and industrially produced substances—may...

Bubbles Not Responsible For Carbonation Bite

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Taking a sip from your favorite carbonated beverage can be a full on sensory experience. The smell of the drink, the sound of the tiny bubbles bursting, the sight of the condensation slowly rolling down the side of the glass, and the refreshing bite from the carbonation all come together to to create a deeply satisfying experience. Researchers from the Monell Center in Philadelphia, however, now say the familiar “bite” of...

'Upsalite' Created By Uppsala University Researchers
2013-07-18 10:51:53

Uppsala University A novel material with world record breaking surface area and water adsorption abilities has been synthesized by researchers from Uppsala University, Sweden. The results are published today in PLOS ONE. The magnesium carbonate material that has been given the name Upsalite is foreseen to reduce the amount of energy needed to control environmental moisture in the electronics and drug formulation industry as well as in hockey rinks and ware houses. It can also be used...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With spring come thoughts of green growing plants and beautiful flowers — Mother Nature showing off her finest. Wim L. Noorduin, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been showing off his finest as well, growing delicate flower structures on the scale of microns in a beaker full of chemical fluid. Noorduin´s miniscule sculptures are curved and delicate, not resembling...

Image 1 - Researchers Take Temperature Of Mars's Past
2011-10-13 04:19:02

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have directly determined the surface temperature of early Mars for the first time, providing evidence that's consistent with a warmer and wetter Martian past. By analyzing carbonate minerals in a four-billion-year-old meteorite that originated near the surface of Mars, the scientists determined that the minerals formed at about 18 degrees Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit). "The thing that's really cool is that 18 degrees is not...

Rocks on Mars dug from far underground by crater-blasting impacts are providing glimpses of one possible way Mars' atmosphere has become much less dense than it used to be. At several places where cratering has exposed material from depths of about 5 kilometers (3 miles) or more beneath the surface, observations by a mineral-mapping instrument on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter indicate carbonate minerals. These are not the first detections of carbonates on Mars. However, compared to...

By Anne M Stark, LLNL Using seawater and calcium to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) in a natural gas power plant's flue stream, and then pumping the resulting calcium bicarbonate in the sea, could be beneficial to the oceans' marine life. Greg Rau, a senior scientist with the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz and who also works in the Carbon Management Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, conducted a series of lab-scale experiments to find out if a seawater/mineral...
