Researchers Incorporate Molecules of Carbon Dioxide Reduction Catalysts into Sponge-Like Covalent Organic Framework Crystals

A molecular system that holds great promise for the capture and storage of carbon dioxide has been modified so that it now also holds great promise as a catalyst for converting captured carbon dioxide into valuable chemical products. [More]
Physicists Synthesize Boron-Doped Graphene Nanoribbons and Characterize Their Structural, Electronic and Chemical Properties

Physicists Synthesize Boron-Doped Graphene Nanoribbons and Characterize Their Structural, Electronic and Chemical Properties

Physicists at the University of Basel succeed in synthesizing boron-doped graphene nanoribbons and characterizing their structural, electronic and chemical properties. The modified material could potentially be used as a sensor for the ecologically damaging nitrogen oxides, scientists report in the latest issue of Nature Communications. [More]
Harvard Researchers Develop New System for Producing Stable, Amorphous Nanoparticles from Wide Material Range

Harvard Researchers Develop New System for Producing Stable, Amorphous Nanoparticles from Wide Material Range

Before Ibuprofen can relieve your headache, it has to dissolve in your bloodstream. The problem is Ibuprofen, in its native form, isn’t particularly soluble. Its rigid, crystalline structures — the molecules are lined up like soldiers at roll call — make it hard to dissolve in the bloodstream. To overcome this, manufacturers use chemical additives to increase the solubility of Ibuprofen and many other drugs, but those additives also increase cost and complexity. [More]
