A salute to progress: The Heidelberg Laureate Forum celebrates its fifth event this weekend

(Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation) From Sept. 24-29, Heidelberg will be home to the densest population of the laureates of mathematics and computer science: recipients of the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize. Show More Summary

State-of-the-art synthesis of SAPO-34 zeolites catalysts for methanol-to-olefin conversion

(Science China Press) Methanol-to-olefin (MTO) conversion has proven to be one of the most successful non-petrochemical routes for producing light olefins. Silicoaluminophosphate zeolite SAPO-34 is one of the best industrial catalysts for MTO conversion, but suffers from rapid deactivation. Show More Summary

Spinning a lighter, safer electrode

(Drexel University) A group of Drexel University researchers have created a fabric-like material electrode that could help make energy storage devices -- batteries and supercapacitors -- faster and less susceptible to leaks or disastrous meltdowns. Show More Summary

Halogen bonding-mediated metal-free controlled cationic polymerization

(Nagoya Institute of Technology) Chemists at the Nagoya Institute of Technology report a metal-free method to control cationic polymerization that provides a new framework for higher quality industrial polymers. The reaction depends on weak halogen bonding and the addition of a small amount of ammonium salt to produce long, homogeneous polymers. Show More Summary

Pulling, not pushing, silk could revolutionize how greener materials are manufactured

(University of Sheffield) New insights into how animals spin silk could lead to new, greener ways of producing synthetic fibres, according to academics at the University of Sheffield.

Complex life evolved out of the chance coupling of small molecules

(University of the Witwatersrand) Very simple ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules (compounds similar to Deoxyribonucleic acid(DNA)) can join other RNA molecules to themselves though a chemical reaction called ligation. The random joining...Show More Summary

Security cameras are vulnerable to attacks using infrared light -- Ben Gurion U. study
