New Method For Producing Clean Hydrogen Developed
2013-05-22 12:11:39

Duke University Duke University engineers have developed a novel method for producing clean hydrogen, which could prove essential to weaning society off of fossil fuels and their environmental implications. While hydrogen is ubiquitous in the environment, producing and collecting molecular hydrogen for transportation and industrial uses is expensive and complicated. Just as importantly, a byproduct of most current methods of producing hydrogen is carbon monoxide, which is toxic to...

Researchers have engineered a strain of electricity-producing bacteria that can grow using hydrogen gas as its sole electron donor and carbon dioxide as its sole source of carbon. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst report their findings at the 113th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology. "This represents the first result of current production solely on hydrogen," says Amit Kumar, a researcher on the study who, along with his co-authors are part of...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have solved a long-standing materials science problem, making it possible to create new semiconductor devices using zinc oxide (ZnO) — including efficient ultraviolet (UV) lasers and LED devices for use in sensors and drinking water treatment, as well as new ferromagnetic devices. “The challenge of using ZnO to make these devices has stumped researchers for a long time, and we´ve developed a solution that uses some very...

Sewer Gas Accelerates Plant Growth, Development
2013-04-18 18:14:55

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Hydrogen sulfide, known to many as ℠sewer gas,´ is a deadly substance that many evolutionary biologists blame for several mass extinction events throughout Earth´s history. However, according to a new study in the open access journal PLOS ONE, very low doses of the pungent compound spur plant growth. The study´s lead researcher Frank Dooley, a University of Washington doctoral student, said he stumbled...

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...
