Chemistry & Catalysis
With SLAC’s X-ray laser and synchrotron, scientists measured exactly how much energy goes into keeping this crucial bond from triggering a cell's death spiral.
A recent discovery by scientists from the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis could lead to a new, more sustainable way to make ethanol without corn or other crops.
A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to a new study led by scientists at Stanford and SLAC.
Scientists have developed a new molybdenum-coated catalyst that more efficiently generates hydrogen gas, which could lead to a sustainable clean fuel source in the future.
An advance by SLAC and Stanford researchers greatly reduces the time needed to analyze complex catalytic reactions for making fuel, industrial chemicals and other products, and should improve computational analysis throughout chemistry.
