Research is Published in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Journal of Materials Chemistry A. RED BANK, N.J., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In making a solar cell, scientists etch nanoscale spikes into a silicon wafer in order to maximize its surface area and consequently to maximize the amount of sunlight to reach it. Metal particles have been used as a catalyst in this process because etching is much accelerated near metal particles. Initially, gold had been the metal of choice. But...

Mary Beckman, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Study shows water trips up key chemical reactions that turn plants into fuels, provides scientific principles that can speed up biofuel development Trying to understand the chemistry that turns plant material into the same energy-rich gasoline and diesel we put in our vehicles, researchers have discovered that water in the conversion process helps form an impurity which, in turn, slows down key chemical reactions. The study, which was...

Plastic that soaks up carbon dioxide
2014-08-12 02:30:35

American Chemical Society A sponge-like plastic that sops up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) might ease our transition away from polluting fossil fuels and toward new energy sources, such as hydrogen. The material — a relative of the plastics used in food containers — could play a role in President Obama’s plan to cut CO2 emissions 30 percent by 2030, and could also be integrated into power plant smokestacks in the future. The report on the material is one of nearly 12,000...
