Berkeley Lab Researchers Develop New Technique for Heterogenizing Homogenous Nano Catalysts Catalysts are substances that speed up the rates of chemical reactions without themselves being chemically changed. Industrial catalysts come in two main types — heterogeneous, in which the catalyst is in a different phase from the reactants; and homogeneous, in which catalyst and the reactants are in the same phase. Heterogeneous catalysts are valued for their sustainability because they can...

A team of researchers at Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering have discovered that individual atoms can catalyze industrially important chemical reactions such as the hydrogenation of acetylene, offering potentially significant economic and environmental benefits. Hydrogenation — the addition of hydrogen atoms to an organic compound — is critical to the food, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Hydrogenation requires the presence of...

International team led by Boston College researchers uses new catalyst to synthesize two potent anti-cancer molecules Research carried out at Boston College, in collaboration with scientists at MIT and the University of Oxford, has led to the development of an efficient and highly selective catalyst for ring-closing olefin metathesis, one of the most widely used reactions in chemical synthesis, the team reports in this week's issue of the journal Nature. The team used the new catalyst,...

BC and MIT researchers reveal power of new catalyst class and olefin metathesis process A new catalytic chemical method for the synthesis of a large and important class of carbon-carbon double bonds has been developed by scientists from Boston College and MIT, the team reports in the journal Nature. The findings substantially expand the versatility of a set of metal-based catalysts discovered only three years ago by the researchers. With molybdenum at their core, the catalysts have now proven...

A team of scientists from Virginia Commonwealth University, the University of Uppsala in Sweden, and the Savannah River National Laboratory have identified that carbon nanostructures can be used as catalysts to store and release hydrogen, a finding that may point researchers toward developing the right material for hydrogen storage for use in cars. Scientific findings indicate that hydrogen has all the makings of an ideal alternative fuel because it is clean, renewable and abundant, but there...

The process to turn propane into industrially necessary propylene has been expensive and environmentally unfriendly. That was until scientists at U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory devised a greener way to take this important step in chemical catalysis."Using platinum clusters, we have devised a way to catalyze propane not only in a more environmentally friendly way, but also using far less energy than previous methods," Argonne scientist Stefan Vajda said.Alkanes are...

Materia announced today Army funding for the development of fire resistant fuel additives. As described by the Army, enemy combatants target fuel tanks so that small munitions and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) can cause great loss of life through explosive fuel combustion. Novel additives could provide superior protection against these ballistic-initiated incendiary threats. Materia's new program will leverage technology from Pasadena's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the...

call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
