Two research projects provide insights about reactions at the molecular level
Researchers have developed a process for the oxidative dehydrogenation of propane (ODHP) that markedly outperforms others.
Novel approach uses common low-cost tape to create a flexible waveguide.
A new nonmetallic catalyst promises to enable economical hydrogen-based substitution reactions that now require expensive or hazardous synthesis routes.
