Feature Articles

A Cryogenic Turbo Mill Generates Rubber Powder From Recycled Tires
A process developed by Lehigh Technologies for embrittling and milling rubber from end-of-life vehicle-tire material is capable of generating micron-scale rubber particles that can be used in a host of rubber…

A Concept For Making Gasoline From Air
Air Fuel Synthesis Ltd. has recently demonstrated a process for producing carbon-neutral liquid hydrocarbon (HC) fuel from air-captured carbon dioxide and hydrogen. The proof-of-concept demonstration facility…

Progress for Making Smart Membranes
Last month marked the completion of the three-year, €3.6-million E.U.-funded research project, Self-assembled Polymer Membranes (SelfMem). Coordinated by the Institute of Polymer Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht…

New Catalysts For Baeyer-Villiger Oxidation Reactions
Kazuaki Ishihara and his group at Nagoya University have established a new, environment friendly reaction technology — using Baeyer-Villiger oxidations — for selectively oxidizing ketones into esters. The reaction…

A Little Gold Can Reduce The Pt Loading In Fuel Cells
A challenge in the development of polymer-electrolyte membrane fuel cells is the durability and electrocatalytic activity of platinum-based electrocatalysts. The sluggishness of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) causes the fuel cell performance to be…

Save Energy (And More) With This Hybrid Compressor System For EOR
Last month, Lewa GmbH and Burckhardt Compression AG (Winterthur, Switzerland) signed an agreement to commercialize hybrid compression systems for enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) applications.

This Fully Functional Li-Ion Battery Is Flexible
A team from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Kaist; Daejeon, South Korea) and Seoul National University led by Kaist’s professor Keon Jae Lee, claims to have developed the first prototype of …

A Nano Cage Made From A Stack Of Benzenes
Professor Kenichoro Itami and his group at Nagoya University have synthesized a cage-type carbon nano-molecule, Carbon Nano-cage, composed of 20 condensed benzene rings — C120H78. The group used a procedure it developed four…

A Polymersome That Releases Its Cargo Where Needed
Several drug delivery systems have been studied involving the encapsulation of molecules in a suitable structure and their transport through the human body. In particular, polymersomes — tiny hollow spheres that enclose a solution — formed using…
