Max Planck researchers discover hydrogen-powered symbiotic bacteria in deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels The search for new energy sources to power mankind's increasing needs is currently a topic of immense interest. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are considered one of the most promising clean energy alternatives. While intensive research efforts have gone into developing ways to harness hydrogen energy to fuel our everyday lives, a natural example of a living hydrogen-powered 'fuel cell' has...

Hydrogen sulfide is a foul-smelling gas with an odor resembling that of rotten eggs. Sometimes called "swamp gas," this toxic substance is generally associated with decaying vegetation, sewers and noxious industrial emissions. And "” as odd as it may seem "” it also plays a critical role in protecting blood vessels from the complications of diabetes, according to a new study from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. In the last few years, work from several...

GREENBELT, Md., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The origin of life may have been smelly, according to a recent, NASA-funded analysis of residue from a variant of classic experiments performed by Dr. Stanley Miller in the 1950s. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) "One of the primary differences between this experiment and others Miller performed is the use of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas to help simulate the primordial atmosphere," said Eric Parker of the...

'Lost' samples from famous origin of life researcher could send the search for Earth's first life in a new direction Stanley Miller gained fame with his 1953 experiment showing the synthesis of organic compounds thought to be important in setting the origin of life in motion. Five years later, he produced samples from a similar experiment, shelved them and, as far as friends and colleagues know, never returned to them in his lifetime. More 50 years later, Jeffrey Bada, Miller's former student...

ASSR could reduce amount of heat needed in purification process Natural gas extracted from the nation's coal beds and methane-rich geologic features must first be purged of hydrogen sulfide before it can be used as fuel. Until now, processing methods have often proved to be inefficient, requiring large amounts of heat. But a team of Battelle researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has discovered a method that could dramatically cut the amount of heat...

New findings from UC Riverside-led team alter traditional ideas about ancient ocean chemistry Geologists at the University of California, Riverside have found chemical evidence in 2.6-billion-year-old rocks that indicates that Earth's ancient oceans were oxygen-free and, surprisingly, contained abundant hydrogen sulfide in some areas. "We are the first to show that ample hydrogen sulfide in the ocean was possible this early in Earth's history," said Timothy Lyons, a professor of...

MONTREAL, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ - Odotech Inc., winner of several prestigious innovation and Cleantech awards, has added another technology breakthrough to its list of firsts. Its new OdoSulf system measures H2S down to 2 ppb, close to the odor perception threshold. Using real-time automated dispersion modelling it can display on the plant operator's screen the H2S dispersion plume (impact), while archiving all H2S and weather data. Hydrogen sulfide is toxic at high concentrations. At...

DALLAS, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- RealTime Laboratories, LLC announced today significant new findings regarding pervasive bacterial presence unique to contaminated drywall. RealTime has identified specific bacteria found only in symptomatic drywall and not in normal domestic drywall that are viable, pervasive and produce hydrogen sulfide and reduced sulfur gases under conditions similar to those found in residences. Cultures developed by RealTime using symptomatic contaminated drywall...

Sulfur (or Sulphur; see spelling below) is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an abundant, tasteless, odorless, multivalent non-metal. Sulfur, in its native form, is a yellow crystaline solid. In nature, it can be found as the pure element or as sulfide and sulfate minerals. It is an essential element for life and is found in several amino acids. Its commercial uses are primarily in fertilizers but it is also widely used in gunpowder,...
