New Biochemical Pathway May Aid Development of More Resilient Crops

Researchers from the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford, have discovered a new biochemical pathway in plants which they have named Chlorad. By manipulating the Chlorad pathway, the scientists can modify how plants respond to their environment. For example, the plant’s ability to tolerate stresses such as high salinity can be improved. read...

Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Chemicals Production

MIT chemical engineers have devised an alternative approach to synthesizing epoxides, a type of chemical that is used to manufacture diverse products, including plastics, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. Their new approach, which uses electricity to run the reaction, can be done at room temperature and atmospheric pressure while eliminating carbon dioxide as a byproduct. read...

Remove Impurities from Natural Gas Without Toxic Solvents

Natural gas is one of the most important energy sources these days. However, it has to be cleaned of impurities by means of complex processes, some of which are harmful to the environment. Researchers at the Massechusettes Institute of Technology have now developed a method that enables natural gas purification using special filtration membranes. read...
