Cathode fabrication for oxide solid-state batteries at room temperature

Added: 19.09.2018 17:55 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have successfully fabricated a lithium trivanadate (LVO) cathode thick film on a garnet-type oxide solid electrolyte using the aerosol deposition method. The LVO cathode thick-film fabricated on the solid electrolyte showed a large reversible charge and discharge capacity as high as 300 mAh/g and a good cycling stability at 100 ºC. This finding may contribute to the realization of highly safe and chemically stable oxide-based all-solid-state lithium batteries.


Natural 'breakdown' of chemicals predicts lung damage in 9/11 firefighters

Pteropods or sea snails, also called sea angels, produce chemical deterrents to ward off predators, and some species of amphipods take advantage of this by carrying pteropods piggyback to gain protection from their voracious predators.

China Retaliates Against Trump With Tariffs Targeting $60 BIllion Of US Goods

Added: 18.09.2018 18:53 | 13 views | 0 comments

Shortly after President Donald Trump announced the United States would put tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, Beijing responded with its own tariffs on $60 billion worth of products from the United States on Tuesday, according to National Public Radio. Chinese state television first reported Xi Jinping's government decided to impose tariffs ranging from 5 to 10 percent on $60 billion worth of U.S. products, beginning next week on more than 5,200 items. China will place an additional 5% in duty on products including textiles, computers, and small aircraft, and an extra 10% on goods including meat, wheat, wine, and chemicals. The report also said if the Trump administration continued to...

Engineered E. coli using formic acid and CO2 as a C1-refinery platform strain

Added: 18.09.2018 18:46 | 1 views | 0 comments

A research group has developed an engineered E. coli strain that converts formic acid and CO2 to pyruvate and produces cellular energy from formic acid through reconstructed one-carbon pathways. The strategy described in this study provides a new platform for producing value-added chemicals from one-carbon sources.

Garlic ingredient from the lab bench

Added: 18.09.2018 18:46 | 5 views | 0 comments

Fresh garlic extracts contain a variety of healthy organosulfur compounds, among which ajoene forms a major oil-extractable ingredient. Now, chemists have synthesized ajoene from readily available components for the first time. The results show that ajoene is accessible on a large scale with very few synthetic steps. Chemical synthesis of biologically active compounds is important for their further evaluation in medicinal research.
