A catalyst to create green pharmaceuticals

24 November, 2014

An international research team has developed a more sustainable approach to a bond-forming reaction used in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. The team used the solvent-free, catalytic reaction to produce high yields of a wide range of amides.


Close encounters of a comet kind - Rosetta and Philae's scientific payloads

13 November, 2014

In March 2004, the spacecraft Rosetta was launched by the European Space Agency - its mission to orbit and land on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. To complete the most detailed study of a comet ever attempted, the orbiter carried 11 science experiments and its lander, Philae, carried 10 additional instruments.
