Sun 17 Dec 2017. Uranium to replace plastic? Chemistry breakthrough could pave the way for new materials. Uranium can perform reactions that previously no one thought possible, which could transform the way industry makes bulk chemicals, polymers, and the precursors to new drugs and plastics, according to new findings. Chemists have discovered that uranium can perform reactions that used to be the preserve of transition metals such as rhodium and palladium. Because uranium sits between different types of reactivity of lanthanides and transition metals, it might be able to combine the best of both to give new ways of producing materials and chemicals More

Thu 14 dec 2017. Revolutionizing nuclear waste reprocessing and saving money. Seeking a better way to capture radioactive iodides in spent nuclear reactor fuel, Rutgers–New Brunswick scientists have developed an extremely efficient “molecular trap” that can be recycled and reused. The trap is like a tiny, porous super-sponge. The internal surface area of just 1 gram of this material could stretch out to cover five 94-by-50-foot basketball courts, or 23,500 square feet. And, once caught inside, radioactive iodides will remain trapped for eons. More

Wed 13 Dec 2017. For the first time, a science experiment has measured Earth's ability to absorb neutrinos -- the smaller-than-an-atom particles that zoom throughout space and through us by the trillions every second at nearly the speed of light. The experiment was achieved with the IceCube detector, an array of 5,160 basketball-sized sensors frozen deep within a cubic kilometer of very clear ice near the South Pole. More

Wed 4 Oct 2017. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 was awarded to Jacques Dubochet University of Lausanne, Switzerland, Joachim Frank, Columbia University, New York, USA and Richard Henderson, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.
