Latest chemical reactions Stories
Rising temperatures in the United States could result in a 70 percent increase in unhealthy summertime ozone levels by the year 2050.
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.
Research collaborations advance company goal of incorporating RedoxSYS(TM) oxidation-reduction potential platform into clinical practice and broaden the scope of applications in the critical care setting
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 RNA.
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...
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
