Long John Silver Worst Meal In America
2013-07-02 15:31:00

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While most fishermen are admired for reeling in the big catch, restaurant chain Long John Silver's is under scrutiny for its new menu item: Wild-Caught Haddock. The lobbying group Center for Science in the Public Interest calls the chain's "Big Catch" menu item the "worst restaurant meal in America." The non-profit group conducted its own lab tests that revealed Long John Silver's Big Catch meal - which includes a piece of fried...

In the world, there are a lot of small molecules people would like to get rid of, or at least convert to something useful, according to University of Wisconsin-Madison chemist Robert J. Hamers. Think carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas most responsible for far-reaching effects on global climate. Nitrogen is another ubiquitous small-molecule gas that can be transformed into the valuable agricultural fertilizer ammonia. Plants perform the chemical reduction of atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia...

Industrial palladium-copper catalysts change their structures before they get to work, already during the activation process. As a result, the reaction is catalyzed by a catalyst that is different from the one originally prepared for it. This surprising discovery was made by researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. Removing of nitrates from ground water or chlorine from dry cleaning wastes are important environmental protection...

Wood borer makes its own enzyme, which could thrive in industrial setting Researchers from the United Kingdom, the Energy Department´s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and the University of Kentucky have recently published a paper describing a novel cellulose-degrading enzyme from a marine wood borer Limnoria quadripunctata, commonly known as the gribble. Gribbles are biologically intriguing because they exhibit a relatively unique ability to produce their own enzymes...

Researchers Develop Efficient And Inexpensive Catalyst Material For Fuel Cells
2013-06-17 09:52:58

Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres Platinum-nickel nano-octahedra save 90 percent platinum Efficient, robust and economic catalyst materials hold the key to achieving a breakthrough in fuel cell technology. Scientists from Jülich and Berlin have developed a material for converting hydrogen and oxygen to water using a tenth of the typical amount of platinum that was previously required. With the aid of state-of-the-art electron microscopy, the researchers...

Door To Clean-Energy Alternatives Opened With Nanoparticle
2013-06-13 15:40:07

Pennsylvania State University Cheaper clean-energy technologies could be made possible thanks to a new discovery. Led by Raymond Schaak, a professor of chemistry at Penn State University, research team members have found that an important chemical reaction that generates hydrogen from water is effectively triggered -- or catalyzed -- by a nanoparticle composed of nickel and phosphorus, two inexpensive elements that are abundant on Earth. The results of the research will be published in the...
