Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online One of the key elements to understanding the proliferation of life on Earth is modeling how electron transfer — the passage of an electron from one element to another — can be catalyzed. But the environmental conditions on Earth some 3 billion years ago were much different than they are today. For one, there was a distinct lack of molecular oxygen in the atmosphere, because it is readily absorbed and...

Charged particle accelerators have become crucially important to modern day life, be it in health care for cancer treatment or for answering important fundamental scientific questions like the existence of the HIGGS boson, the so called 'God particle'. In a simple picture, charged particles like electrons and protons are accelerated between two end plates across which an electrical voltage is applied. High energies need high voltages (millions and billions of volts) and long acceleration...

In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
