RUB researchers give floppy molecule a structure through solvent effects How you get the chameleon of the molecules to settle on a particular "look" has been discovered by RUB chemists led by Professor Dominik Marx. The molecule CH5+ is normally not to be described by a single rigid structure, but is dynamically flexible. By means of computer simulations, the team from the Centre for Theoretical Chemistry showed that CH5+ takes on a particular structure once you attach hydrogen molecules....

Hindenburg Mystery Solved 76 Years After Deadly Explosion
2013-03-05 12:43:48

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Investigators said they have solved the 76-year-old mystery surrounding the Hindenburg disaster that claimed the lives of 35 of the 100 passengers and crew members on board. According to a team led by British aeronautical engineer Jem Stansfield at the South West Research Institute (SWRI) in San Antonio, Texas, a static electricity-generated spark ignited hydrogen gas leaking from the airship — resulting in the massive explosion...

Researchers Look To New Process To Harvest Solar Energy

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Since the seventh century B.C., mankind has looked to the power of the sun to provide an energy source. In the earliest days, humans used glass and mirrors to concentrate the sun's rays to make fire. Later, around the first century A.D., the Romans discovered large south facing windows could help let in the sun´s warmth. There's even one infamous tale of Greek scientist Archimedes using bronze shields to reflect and focus...

Fast and efficient biologically inspired catalyst could someday make fuel cells cheaper To make fuel cells more economical, engineers want a fast and efficient iron-based molecule that splits hydrogen gas to make electricity. Online Feb. 17 at Nature Chemistry, researchers report such a catalyst. It is the first iron-based catalyst that converts hydrogen directly to electricity. The result moves chemists and engineers one step closer to widely affordable fuel cells. "A drawback with...

The PhD thesis of Aingeru Remiro-Eguskiza, a chemical engineer of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), deals with the quest for a process to produce hydrogen from bio-oil that has a lower impact on the environment than the process using current routes. The gradual increase in the price of crude oil and the negative environmental consequences that its use entails are putting us on the threshold of a change of energy model that will need to be tackled over the coming decades....

Researchers Reconfirm Original Tetrahedral Model Of Water Molecules
2013-02-13 04:45:42

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For all those who worried back in 2004 that the sky was falling because the original model of the molecular structure of water toppled out, have no fear, because things can go back to the way they used to be. Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) researchers confirmed the original tetrahedral model, after an international research group challenged the model nine-years ago, claiming that water molecules form bonds only with two...

Astatine is a radioactive chemical element. The symbol for Astatine is At and its atomic number is 85. Astatine is the heaviest halogen discovered. It was first produced by Dale R. Corson, Kenneth Ross Mackenzie, and Emilio Segrè in 1940. Although astatine is produced by radioactive decay in nature, it is typically found only in miniscule amounts due to its short half-life (the time it takes for one half of the atoms of a given radioactive substance to decay or disintegrate). Trace amounts...
