Chemists at UCL have discovered a new property of flames, which allows them to control reactions at a solid surface in a flame and opens up a whole new field of chemical innovation. Published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, authors of the new study have discovered their previous understanding of how flames interact with a solid surface was mistaken. For the first time, they have demonstrated that a particular type of chemistry, called redox chemistry, can be accurately controlled at the...

The flame skimmer (Libellula saturate), also known as the firecracker skimmer, is a species of dragonfly that can be found in western areas of North America. It prefers to reside in warm areas near hot springs, ponds, and streams, but it can be seen backyards and public gardens. This species varies in size, but typically reaches a body length between two and three inches. Males are completely dark orange or red in color, the trait from which the species received its common name, while females...

A Bunsen burner produces a single open gas flame; it is commonly found in labs - used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. Robert Bunsen, in 1852, was hired at the University of Heidelberg and promised a new laboratory building. Heidelberg had just started installing coal-gas street lighting which provided light but not necessarily heat. Laboratory lamps, at the time, left much to be desired regarding economy and simplicity. The desire was to maximize the temperature and minimize...
