Greener chemistry through new approach to catalysis

Only 30 mg of the new catalyst is needed to convert 1 kg of substrate. Credit: TU Delft/Wenjun Yang Researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have developed a catalyst that is effective in negligible amounts. Due to its form and durability, the catalyst lasts much longer in reactions, saving a great deal of […]

Scientists publish open resource to help design ‘greener’ energy systems

Researchers have created a database of measurements from existing global power grid systems that will help develop new power systems capable of meeting changing demands, such as the move towards renewable energy sources. The study, published in Nature Communications, is the first step towards a more collaborative approach to energy research. It is hoped the […]
