Researchers have succeeded in activating an organic chemical reaction with a simple electric field. To do this, they designed an electrochemical microfluidic reactor.
Researchers fermented various fungal species with a range of foods and found that meaty aromas were generated from foods in the Allium family, such as onions and leeks.
Belgian researchers tested 39 brands of straws for poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and found they were most common in straws made from paper and bamboo.
Scientists used a quantum computer to directly observe a process critical in chemical reactions by slowing it down by a factor of 100 billion times, in what is said to be a world first.
Researchers have developed a novel catalysis scheme that enables chemical reactions that were previously virtually impossible, without the need for rare or precious metals.
Researchers have made the claim that an increase in oxygen did not catalyse the swift blossoming of Earth's first multicellular organisms, defying a 70-year-old assumption.
Flexible spheres of the biomolecule chitosan, made from shrimp waste, can be used for catalysts that generate hydrogen gas from borohydride salts.
Researchers have created a fluid mechanics-based chamber design for an electronic nose that can detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at low concentrations.
Many common products like shampoos, body lotions, cleaners, mothballs and paint removers contain toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Human activities emit many kinds of pollutants into the air, and without a molecule called hydroxide (OH), many of these pollutants would keep aggregating in the atmosphere.
Researchers have developed new testing methods that can quickly and accurately identify the latest designer drugs, along with better tests for traditional drugs.
Researchers have demonstrated a machine learning method that utilises 2D chemical descriptors to accurately predict highly selective asymmetric catalysts.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched two wet chemistry analysers that deliver fully automated, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-compliant testing for environmental, agricultural and industrial testing labs.
The intelligent analyser is designed to precisely measure oil over a wide range of 0 to 30 ppm (mg/L) and can be factory preconfigured to measure oil in multiple ranges or easily set in the field.
Bringing a new level of control to making long and geometrically interlinked polymer molecules from several different alternating molecular units joined in a controlled sequence.
