Improved Olefin Production in Fischer-Tropsch-Synthesis
The Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis is an important process to convert coal, natural gas and biomass to a variety of hydrocarbon products of different chain lengths. These products mainly find use as transportation fuels including petrol jet fuel and diesel as well as special waxes. Fischer-Tropsch-Synthesis is, however, also known for its capability of producing chemicals such as olefines which are of a much higher value than low value fuels.
This development describes a process modification which allows one to dramatically improve the olefin selectivity over a wide range on the Fischer-Tropsch reaction, via co-feeding of suitable gases such as ammonia. Notably this can be achieved by means with no or tolerable loss of catalysts activity.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
