“Global Trade Analysis of Yellow Phosphorus” is the latest addition to market research reports library of ReportsnReports.com. Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 17, 2012 Yellow phosphorus is a kind of basic chemical, and it is also a sort of high energy consumption and pollution product. Most developed countries have stopped producing yellow phosphorus. Therefore, a great deal of yellow phosphorus has to be transported from origins to destinations. Then, the global trade of yellow...

Ice Cores From Greenland Show Atmospheric Acidity
2012-12-08 07:12:48

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from the University of Washington (UW) have linked decreasing levels of a nitrogen isotope in Greenland ice sheet samples to increased acidity levels in the atmosphere. Previously, the decrease in levels of the isotope nitrogen-15 had been linked to a correlating increase in nitrates linked with the burning of fossil fuels, the university explained in a December 7 report. However, the new research suggests sulfur...

The study of materials at extreme conditions took a giant leap forward with the discovery of a way to generate super high pressures without using shock waves whose accompanying heat turns solids to liquid. This discovery will allow scientists for the first time to reach static pressure levels exceeding four million atmospheres, a high-pressure environment where new unique compounds could be formed, materials change their chemical and physical properties and metals become insulators. ...

Oxygen's Rise And Fall In The Early Atmosphere And Ocean
2012-10-23 20:44:52

UC Riverside-led research team finds evidence for a dramatic rise in early oxygen about 2.3 billion years ago followed, more surprisingly, by an equally impressive fall Most researchers imagine the initial oxygenation of the ocean and atmosphere to have been something like a staircase, but with steps only going up. The first step, so the story goes, occurred around 2.4 billion years ago, and this, the so-called Great Oxidation Event, has obvious implications for the origins and evolution...

Microbes Produced Oxygen Well Before Great Oxidation Event

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Life on earth began in the oceans, but it would eventually spread to land and a new study suggests that land-dwelling bacteria could have covered large swaths of territory about 2.7 billion years ago, despite a thin ozone layer that would have offered little protection against the sun´s ultraviolet radiation. According to astrobiologists at the University of Washington, these earliest microbes produced oxygen and broke down...

The study of an oxygen-sensing bacterial regulatory protein by chemistry researchers at the University of Georgia has provided molecular insight into the oxygen sensing mechanism, which could ultimately lead to a better understanding of the ageing process and new treatments for human diseases such cancer, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Michael Johnson, a distinguished research professor of chemistry in the UGA Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, and Bo Zhang, a UGA chemistry doctoral...

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NASA's Project MESSENGER spacecraft returned photos of Mercury's surface revealing "... an unusual landform on Mercury, characterized by irregular shaped, shallow, rimless depressions, commonly in clusters and in association with high-reflectance material." Mercury is the only rocky planet where such surface-features have been observed. NASA scientists recognized that the "pits" appear to have formed from volatile-related activity, but were unable to...

Rice University physicists find reversible way to alter VO2“²s unique electronic about-face If you are not a condensed matter physicist, vanadium oxide (VO2) may be the coolest material you´ve never heard of. It´s a metal. It´s an insulator. It´s a window coating and an optical switch. And thanks to a new study by physicists at Rice University, scientists have a new way to reversibly alter VO2“²s electronic properties by treating it with one of the...

New Study May Hold Clue To Proving the Gaia Theory
2012-05-18 04:30:16

The Gaia Hypothesis proposes that the Earth is actually a giant living organism, and a University of Maryland (UMD) study might have found the key to unlocking this mystery, and this discovery could lead to an improved understanding of the climate and changes that occur within it. The key is sulfur, and researchers hope to find the relationships between the atmosphere, ocean organisms, and land, using sulfur in order to prove the Gaia Theory. The Gaia Theory was first introduced in the...

Acid Rain
2013-04-01 10:21:17

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
