NITROGEN RADICAL CHEMISTRY SEES THE LIGHT

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – CAMBRIDGE (UNITED KINGDOM), lun 25 gennaio 2021 Look at the structures of the top-selling drugs and you’d be hard pushed to find one without a carbon–nitrogen bond. They’re tricky bonds to make and chemists normally generate them by using nitrogen compounds as nucleophiles. Daniele Leonori, however, has a......

CATALYST OFFERS LOW TEMPERATURE ROUTE TO PRODUCE HYDROGEN

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – CAMBRIDGE (UNITED KINGDOM), sab 23 gennaio 2021 An effective, stable catalyst that works just above room temperature can turn water and carbon monoxide into a stream of pure hydrogen and carbon dioxide.1 The development of a catalyst that works at much lower temperatures could be a boost for......

ELECTRIC FIELDS FLICK THE QUANTUM-TUNNELLING SWITCH IN COLD REACTIONS

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – CAMBRIDGE (UNITED KINGDOM), mer 20 gennaio 2021 Using quantum chemical calculations, scientists have discovered that external electric fields can drastically alter the kinetics of several chemical reactions below 20K, where quantum tunnelling dominates the reaction pathways. Quantum tunnelling is a phenomenon in which particles can pass through potential......
