A novel coordination polymer-based photocatalyst for CO2 reduction exhibits unprecedented performance, giving scientists at Tokyo Tech hope in the fight against global warming. Made from abundant elements and requiring no complex post-synthesis treatment or modifications, this promising photocatalyst could pave the way for a new class of photocatalysts for efficiently converting CO2 into useful chemicals.
This year’s chemistry Nobel prize is shared equally between the click chemistry pioneers Barry Sharpless and Morten Meldal, and Carolyn Bertozzi, who shaped the field of bioorthogonal chemistry. For Sharpless, this is his second chemistry Nobel prize – he’s only the second person after Frederick Sanger to receive two chemistry prizes.
The first drug to slow the destruction of the brain in Alzheimer's has been heralded as momentous.
Many owners of electric vehicles worry about how effective their battery will be in very cold weather. Now a new battery chemistry may have solved that problem.
