This pollen sponge can absorb oil contaminants, such as gasoline and motor oil, at a rate comparable to commercial oil absorbents
This method of purification under natural sunlight opens a new paradigm in clean water production using renewable solar energy.
A re-usable sponge can capture and recover crude oil droplets from cold water to generate clean water in a fragile ecosystem.
With increasing rates of urbanization and its detrimental effects on the environment, reducing the risk posed by “urban climate change” requires more research to prepare ourselves for an uncertain future.
Miniature plasma reactors mimic how lightening makes renewable nitrogen fertilizer using just sunlight, water, and air.
Synthesis of a rare metal complex of nitrous oxide opens new vistas for the degradation of a potent greenhouse gas.
Luminescent solar concentrators based on a conjugated polymer redirect light from inside and out.
Researchers explore how the predicted increase in variable rainfall and higher temperatures will impact management of common weeds for corn production.
As an increasing global population moves into areas where non-perennial rivers are common, we need to understand how human water needs impact when, where, and how much these rivers flow.
Increasing the mass of an electrode reduces power density due to the longer distance that ions and electrons must travel. Electrode designs need a rethink.
