Snapshots of chemical reactions: Characterizing an important reactive intermediate

Chemical reactions rarely go from starting materials to final products in one single step, but instead they progress through a number of intermediates. In many…

Engineers teach old chemical new tricks to make cleaner fuels, fertilizers

University researchers from two continents have engineered an efficient and environmentally friendly catalyst for the production of molecular hydrogen (H2), a…

Unexpected Bond Formation of Chemical Element Boron

In synthetic chemistry, so-called element-element bonding can be systematically exploited to assemble small building blocks to obtain structures that are more…

Scientists invent self-healing battery electrode

The secret is a stretchy polymer that coats the electrode, binds it together and spontaneously heals tiny cracks that develop during battery operation, said…

Changing the conversation — polymers disrupt bacterial communication
