Harvesting waste heat from power stations and even vehicle exhaust pipes could soon provide a valuable supply of electricity.
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.
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.
Kansas State University physicists and an international team of collaborators have made a breakthrough that improves understanding of matter-light interactions.
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...
