After more than 10 years' work, scientists at the University of Granada have a developed a carbon gel that enables CO2 to be turned into hydrocarbons by electro-catalytic transformation. Researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) have developed a new material using doped carbon that allows low-cost energy to be produced and also reduces the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere. The recently-patented material is a gel that enables the CO2 to be turned back into hydrocarbons via...

Researchers at the University of Granada have produced for the first time in the world mice lacking the coenzyme Q10, a rare mitochondrial disease prevailingly affecting children. The researchers needed three years to complete the study. At three to six months of life, this genetic alteration in mice —similar to that occurred in human— causes a rapid degeneration in the lower limbs to death for cardiac arrest. For the first time in the world, researchers at the Center for...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international group of researchers, led by the University of Granada, has measured the effects of layers on super-heavy elements, providing useful data on the nuclear structure of these as yet undiscovered elements in nature. The results, reported in Science, might prove useful in locating the "Island of Stability." The team measured the isotopes of nobelium (No) and lawrencium (Lr) using a particle accelerator at the GSI...

Scientists have discovered the initial stages by which gypsum crystals form. Gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral which is often used in industrial processes and which in nature, if left alone for thousands of years, can grow into huge translucent, towering and eerie, crystals more than 10 metres tall. These are famed for their beauty in places such as the Cave of Crystals in Mexico. Nevertheless, the formation of gypsum has until now been largely unexplored. A study by researchers...
