Scientists in Japan have created an alloy that is similar to a precious metal used in many high-tech products, according to a news report on Thursday, calling the breakthrough "present-day alchemy." Kyoto University professor Hiroshi Kitagawa and colleagues used nanotechnology to combine rhodium and silver, elements that usually do not mix, to produce the new composite, which is very similar to palladium, the Yomiuri daily said. Palladium is used in emission-reducing catalytic converters...

Fuel cells could create a breakthrough for electric cars, because refuelling them is fast and easy, just like your traditional gas guzzler. But there's an obstacle. Current fuel cells need platinum in order to work. And that's expensive.Now chemists from Copenhagen, Potsdam and Hanau have taken the first step towards producing fuel cells using very little of the precious metal. Testing problemsolver At the University of Copenhagen Matthias Arenz has specialized in testing the catalysts that...

Molybdenite is a mineral of molybdenum disulfide, MoS2. Similar in appearance and feel to graphite, molybdenite has a lubricating effect which is produced by its structure of close-spaced parallel cleavage planes. Finely powdered MoS2, with particle sizes in the 1-100 µm range, is a common technical dry lubricant. It is also often mixed into various oils or greases, which allows mechanisms so lubricated to run less noisy and to keep running for a while longer even if most of the oil should...
