Experts at The University of Nottingham are the first to create a stable version of a ℠trophy molecule´ that has eluded scientists for decades. In research published in the prestigious journal Science, the team of chemists at Nottingham has shown that they can prepare a terminal uranium nitride compound which is stable at room temperature and can be stored in jars in crystallized or powder form. Previous attempts to prepare uranium-nitrogen triple bonds have required...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online We´ve heard about batteries that keep going and going, but scientists have taken the next step and created an energy source that keeps going even after its fuel is gone. This ℠zombie´ fuel cell, which is a fraction of the size of a standard AA battery, converts hydrogen to electricity, but also has the ability to store electrical chemical energy. The stored energy can then be tapped into after the cell´s hydrogen...

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...

An international team of physicists has developed a method for taking ultrafast “sonograms” that can track the structural changes that take place within solid materials in trillionth-of-a-second intervals as they go through an important physical process called a phase transition. Common phase transitions include the melting of candle wax before it burns and dissolving sugar in water. They are purely structural changes that produce dramatic changes in a material´s physical...

Titanium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a light, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including resistance to sea water and chlorine) transition metal with a white-silvery-metallic color. Titanium is used in strong light-weight alloys (most notably with iron and aluminum) and its most common compound, titanium dioxide, is used in white pigments. This element occurs in numerous minerals with the main sources being rutile and...

Vanadinite is a mineral with the formula Pb5(VO4)3Cl, lead chlorovanadate. It is part of a series with two other minerals: pyromorphite (Pb5(PO4)3Cl) and mimetite (Pb5(AsO4)3Cl). It has hexagonal crystals, usually prismatic but the crystals are often skeletal or cavernous and it may be found in crusts. It is brittle and has an uneven fracture. The hardness of vanadinite is 2.75-3 and its specific gravity is 6.7-7.2. It has a resinous lustre and is coloured yellow, yellowish-brown,...
