A step forward towards recyclable and environmentally friendly catalysis -- Ambelyst-15 demonstrates excellent potential for sustainability Owing to the huge array of applications, catalysis has long been dubbed as one of the most significant areas of process and synthetic chemistry. In fact, the vast majority of all chemical industrial products — be it in the field of pharmaceutical, agricultural or polymer chemistry — involve catalysts at some stage of the manufacturing...

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...

Two components of red meat – dietary protein and dietary iron – may combine to form powerful carcinogens, N-nitroso compounds, which increase risk for bladder cancer. Moreover, individuals with reduced ability to reverse the effects of N-nitroso compounds because of a genetic variation in their RAD52 gene could be at particularly high risk. Chelsea Catsburg, a doctoral student at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, presented these...

Scientists at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) have identified a shortlist of denaturants that could be used to harmonize denaturing practices at EU level and reduce fraud and tax evasion of alcoholic beverages. The proposed denaturants could potentially replace over 100 different substances currently used in Member States to denature alcohol. Denaturants are used to make alcohol unfit for human consumption and are therefore strong-smelling or bitter-tasting...
