Reaction & Synthesis
Developments aim to turn vast amounts of discarded material into feedstocks
A shape-shifting porous material that mimics the way proteins work looks promising as a catalyst.
Approach could lead to smaller processing plants powered by alternative energy
Work now is focusing on optimizing the catalyst structure and testing its viability for other types of reactions.
