Marek Urban develops hose that can repair its own cracks
Dr. Marek Urban and his research group at Clemson University have developed a self-repairing hose to dispense hydrogen as part of the nation’s effort to diversify its fuel supply in the face of increasingly dire warnings about climate change.
Scientists show a single catalyst can perform the first step of turning CO2 into fuel in two very different ways
Scientists at Stanford and SLAC made a new catalyst that works with either heat or electricity to accelerate a reaction for turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide. It’s an important step toward unifying the understanding of catalytic reactions in these two very different conditions.
