Latest chemical bond Stories
New research by Rice University scientists suggests that a class of material known as metallacarborane could store hydrogen at or better than benchmarks set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen Program for 2015.
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
Scientists at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the University of Ottawa (uOttawa) enjoyed a bird's eye view of a chemical bond as it breaks.
In a paper in Nature Chemistry, Vivek Shenoy and colleagues pinpointed noncarbon atoms that create defects when graphene is produced through a technique called graphene-oxide reduction.
Powerful concept offers new approach to understanding surfaces of materials.
Some atoms don't always follow the rules.
The new method may revolutionize synthesis of natural products and therapeutic drugs.
Physicists get a grip on slippery molecules, and learn how the shape of nanoscopic magnetic islands affect data storage.
Predatory fish are well aware of the problem: In a swarm of small fish it is hard to isolate prey. A similar situation can be found in the microcosm of atoms and molecules, whose behavior is influenced by "swarms" of electrons.
Like astronomers counting stars in the familiar universe of outer space, chemists in Switzerland are reporting the latest results of a survey of chemical space â€” the so-called chemical universe where tomorrow's miracle drugs may reside.
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
