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...

Much like a meteor impacting a planet, highly charged ions hit really hard and can do a lot of damage, albeit on a much smaller scale. And much like geologists determine the size and speed of the meteor by looking at the hole it left, physicists can learn a lot about a highly charged ion's energy by looking at the divots it makes in thin films. Building upon their work for which they were recently awarded a patent, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and...

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...
