Latest Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research Stories
The latest episode in the American Chemical Society's (ACS') award-winning Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions podcast series describes a report demonstrating that unprocessed, raw cotton has an amazing ability to sop up oil while also being eco-friendly.
Scientists are reporting new evidence that a white rot fungus shows promise in the search for a way to use waste corn stalks, cobs and leaves – rather than corn itself – to produce ethanol to extend supplies of gasoline.
Scientists are reporting development and successful testing of a way to reuse — hundreds of times — the expensive, dirt-busting enzymes that boost the cleaning power of laundry detergents and powdered bleaches that now disappear down the drain.
Amid growing concern that using soybeans and other food crops to produce biodiesel fuel will raise the price of food, scientists have identified a new and unlikely raw material for the fuel: Alligator fat.
To the surprisingly inventive uses for banana peels â€” which include polishing silverware, leather shoes, and the leaves of house plants â€” scientists have added purification of drinking water contaminated with potentially toxic metals.
Tobacco, used on a small scale as a natural organic pesticide for hundreds of years, is getting new scientific attention as a potential mass-produced alternative to traditional commercial pesticides.
Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research (I&EC Research) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published since 1909. It was published under Industrial & Engineering Chemistry until 1970, when Research was added to the title. The journal was edited by Milton C. Whitaker from 1911-1916. The journal’s current editor-in-chief is Professor Donald R. Paul. For industrial chemists and chemical engineers, this journal is the reliable and current source of new fundamental research,...
