American Chemical Society The Kavli Foundation Lecture series today features two prominent scientists: one in the booming area of ionic liquids, the other in medical materials. The former has made a novel compound with the potential to lower the energy it takes to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from smoke stacks. The latter has engineered tissues and medical materials such as a stretchy glue that could transform surgery. They will make presentations today at the 248th National Meeting &...

New Type Of Lab-on-a-chip Overcomes Miniaturization Problems
2014-04-30 03:39:37

University of New South Wales UNSW Australia chemists have invented a new type of tiny lab-on-a-chip device that could have a diverse range of applications, including to detect toxic gases, fabricate integrated circuits and screen biological molecules. The novel technique developed by the UNSW team involves printing a pattern of miniscule droplets of a special solvent onto a gold-coated or glass surface. "We use a class of 'green' solvents called ionic liquids, which are salts that...

NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SurePure, Inc. (OTCBB: SURP) a global leader in liquid photopurification, today announced that trials using its patented photopurification system to microbiologically purify potato rinse water had proven successful. A SurePure spokesperson said, "Potato processing plants are amongst the most water-intensive in the world. Rinse water has proven particularly difficult to clean microbiologically because its heavy starch load makes it impossible to...

Scientists Discover New Surprising Details About Table Salt
2013-12-20 08:30:34

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of scientists has discovered a surprise hidden in the first chemical compound that children learn about: table salt. Under certain high pressure conditions, table salt, scientifically known as sodium chloride, can take on some surprising forms that violate standard chemistry predictions. The findings, published in Science, may hold the key to answering lingering questions about planet formation. The team used...

Harvesting waste heat from power stations and even vehicle exhaust pipes could soon provide a valuable supply of electricity. A small team of Monash University researchers working under the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) has developed an ionic liquid-based thermocell. Thermocells are based on harnessing the thermal energy from the difference in temperature between two surfaces and converting that energy into electrical energy....

Ionization Potential Of Radioactive Element Astatine Measured
2013-07-07 20:25:24

The radioactive element astatine, the name of which is derived from the Greek word for 'instability,' is so rare on earth that it has not yet been investigated to any greater extent and, as a consequence, very little is known about it. Using artificially generated astatine, the Mainz-based physicist Sebastian Rothe has now managed for the first time to experimentally explore one of its fundamental parameters, the ionization potential, and thus determine one of the most important properties of...

Gold-plated Fossil Cleanup
2012-05-24 07:27:54

A team from the University of Leicester has solved a long-standing problem in fossil research, and their novel approach will assist in the study of ancient specimens. Fossils are often coated with a very thin layer of gold to study the specimens under an electron microscope. The gold brings out otherwise invisible details. When the analysis is complete the fossils need to be returned to their natural state. However, the removal of the gold has always been difficult, expensive, and uses...

Kansas State University physicists and an international team of collaborators have made a breakthrough that improves understanding of matter-light interactions. Their research allows double ionization events to be observed at the time scale of attoseconds, which are one-billionth of a billionth of a second. The physicists have also shown that these ionization events occur earlier than thought -- a key factor to improving knowledge of correlated electron dynamics, which involve two...

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...
