redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Rising temperatures in the United States could result in a 70 percent increase in unhealthy summertime ozone levels by the year 2050, according to new research appearing this week in the American Geophysical Union’s Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres. The study, which was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the US Department of Energy showed that global warming, higher atmospheric methane levels, and...

Researchers Identify Key Intermediate Steps In Artificial Photosynthesis Reaction
2014-03-04 11:03:17

Lynn Yarris, Berkeley Lab Artificial photosynthesis, in which we emulate the process used by nature to capture energy from the sun and convert it into electrochemical energy, is expected to be a major asset in any sustainable energy portfolio for the future. Artificial photosynthesis offers the promise of producing liquid fuels that are renewable and can be used without exacerbating global climate change. A key to realizing commercial-scale artificial photosynthesis technology is the...

Taking part in the largest U.S. air quality field project in decades, the National Center for Atmospheric Research is working with partners to study pollution in the Southeast. The study looks at the impact of chemical reactions occurring between human-related pollution and volatile organic compounds emitted from vegetation. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013 Taking part in the largest U.S. air quality field project in decades, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is working...

Magnetic Fire Reveals Energy's Path
2013-05-14 06:16:33

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The most efficient ways of storing energy is within electric and magnetic fields. And as the world proceeds to develop ever more efficient and “green” energy solutions, understanding the nature of these fields and how the energy propagates is essential. One of the challenges is understanding how energy flows through magnetic materials. Researchers have been trying for decades to draw a parallel between the...

New Insights Could Lead To Better Catalysts For Water Splitting
2013-03-29 10:47:24

California Institute of Technology Chemists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory believe they can now explain one of the remaining mysteries of photosynthesis, the chemical process by which plants convert sunlight into usable energy and generate the oxygen that we breathe. The finding suggests a new way of approaching the design of catalysts that drive the water-splitting reactions of artificial photosynthesis. "If we want to...

New Approach To Chemical Reduction Using Catalyst In A Teacup
2013-03-25 09:38:01

University of New South Wales Taking their inspiration from Nature, scientists at the University of New South Wales have developed a new method for carrying out chemical reduction — an industrial process used to produce fuels and chemicals that are vital for modern society. Their catalyst-based approach has the big advantages that it uses cheap, replenishable reagents and it works well at room temperature and in air — so much so, it can even be carried out safely in a...

Scientists have developed a way to grow iron-oxidizing bacteria using electricity instead of iron, an advance that will allow them to better study the organisms and could one day be used to turn electricity into fuel. The study will be published on January 29 in mBio®, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology. The method, called electrochemical cultivation, supplies these bacteria with a steady supply of electrons that the bacteria use to respire, or...

RNA-world Hypothesis Under The Microscope
2012-10-15 05:27:46

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A chemical model developed by a team of US researchers shows how the Earth's first life forms may have packaged the genetic coding material known as ribonucleic acid (RNA), demonstrating one of the earliest steps that could have paved the way for the formation of cellular life some four billion years ago. The Penn State University scientists behind the project used a type of macromolecule called polymers to create primitive...

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 kēme, meaning "earth") evolved from alchemy following the chemical revolution...
