Latest chemical reaction Stories
Fuel cells are inefficient because the catalyst most commonly used to convert chemical energy to electricity is made of the wrong material.
In 1928, chemists Otto Diels and Kurt Alder first documented diene synthesis, a chemical reaction important for synthesizing many polymers, alkaloids and steroids.
A team of researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has devised a new method for making complex molecules.
University of Utah chemists developed a method to design and test new catalysts, which are substances that speed chemical reactions and are crucial for producing energy, chemicals and industrial products.
Chemical reactions happen all of the time: some things burn or rust, others react to light exposure--even batteries use chemical reactions to supply electricity.
Good chemists are passive-aggressive â€” they manipulate molecules without actually touching them.
New research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill investigating the effect of temperature on extremely slow chemical reactions suggests that the time required for evolution on a warm earth is shorter than critics might expect.
Chemists at UC San Diego have uncovered a new chemical reaction on tiny particulates in the atmosphere that could allow scientists to gain a glimpse from ancient rocks of what the atmospheres of the Earth and Mars were like hundreds of millions years ago.
UCLA physicists have taken a significant step in controlling chemical reactions mechanically, an important advance in nanotechnology.
Chemistry is a physical science concerned with the composition, structure, and properties of matter. It also deals with the changes that matter undergoes during chemical reactions. It incorporates the studies of various atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates which can be combined or isolated and concepts of energy and entropy through which chemical processes occur. Modern chemistry (from the Egyptian kÄ“me, meaning "earth") evolved from alchemy following the chemical revolution...
