Latest chemical reactions Stories
Using a new ultrafast camera, researchers have recorded the first real-time image of two atoms vibrating in a molecule.
A polymer is a mesh of chains, which slowly break over time due to the pressure from ordinary wear and tear.
The same principle that causes figure skaters to spin faster as they draw their arms into their bodies has now been used by Michigan State University researchers to understand how molecules move energy around following the absorption of light.
Researchers in the Pacific Northwest have developed a new catalyst material that could replace chemicals currently derived from petroleum and be the basis for more environmentally friendly products including octane-boosting gas and fuel additives, bio-based rubber for tires and a safer solvent for the chemicals industry.
Combining electrochemistry and photovoltaics to clean up oxidation reactions .
Future studies of P450 compound I could lead to the more efficient design and creation of drugs.
UCLA physicists have taken a significant step in controlling chemical reactions mechanically, an important advance in nanotechnology.
JILA scientists use electric fields to control chemical reactions of ultracold molecules.
An extremely small RNA molecule created by a University of Colorado at Boulder team can catalyze a key reaction needed to synthesize proteins, the building blocks of life.
Physicists at JILA have for the first time observed chemical reactions near absolute zero, demonstrating that chemistry is possible at ultralow temperatures and that reaction rates can be controlled using quantum mechanics, the peculiar rules of submicroscopic physics.
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...
