Nitrogen Fixation System Could Eliminate The Need For Chemical Fertilizers
2013-07-26 05:01:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Plant scientists from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom have announced a revolutionary new system that allows plants to take nitrogen from the atmosphere and potentially eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers that can pollute the ecosystem where they are used. Plants must fix nitrogen and convert it to ammonia in order to survive and grow - however, only a few plants, such as peas and lentils, have the ability to...

A simple, low-cost and eco-friendly method of creating nitrogen-doped graphene nanoplatelets (NGnPs), which could be used in dye-sensitized solar cells and fuel cells, is published in Scientific Reports today. The work, carried out at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea, could be a step towards replacing conventional platinum (Pt)-based catalysts for energy conversion. The search for economically viable alternatives to fossil fuels has attracted...

In the world, there are a lot of small molecules people would like to get rid of, or at least convert to something useful, according to University of Wisconsin-Madison chemist Robert J. Hamers. Think carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas most responsible for far-reaching effects on global climate. Nitrogen is another ubiquitous small-molecule gas that can be transformed into the valuable agricultural fertilizer ammonia. Plants perform the chemical reduction of atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia...

Oceans Of The Past Give Clues To The Future
2013-06-15 05:39:41

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The oceans of the past were quite different than the ones we see today. Ocean temperatures are increasing due to global warming, and these increases are harming marine food webs. Coastal dead zones are also being created by the run-off from fertilizers. An international team of researchers, led by McGill University, has completed the first global study of changes that occurred during the nitrogen cycle at the end of the last ice age....

Manganese, Gallium Nitride Merged In Uniform layer
2013-06-07 12:10:07

Ohio University Ten years ago, scientists were convinced that a combination of manganese and gallium nitride could be a key material to create spintronics, the next generation of electronic devices that operate on properties found at the nanoscale. But researchers grew discouraged when experiments indicated that the two materials were as harmonious as oil and water. A new study led by Ohio University physicists suggests that scientists should take another look at this materials duo,...
