Latest Hydrogen Stories
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.
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.
A team of Virginia Tech researchers has discovered a way to extract large quantities of hydrogen from any plant, a breakthrough that has the potential to bring a low-cost, environmentally friendly fuel source to the world.
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.
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 SegrÃ¨ 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...
