A review on modified carbon materials as promising agents for hydrogen storage

Posted on 28. August, 2018.

Nowadays, energy is an important issue in all countries and this essential subject and the drawbacks of fossil fuels have encouraged researchers to develop new energies. However, among these new energies such as solar energy, wind energy and others, hydrogen is pre-eminent because it has no pollutant by-product and it is thus clean with a huge thermal energy. However, it is not applicable in many industries because of obstacles such as safety, volatility, explosive hazards and low compressibility.

Designer life using synthetic biology

Posted on 21. February, 2015.

Look anywhere on land or in the oceans and you will find a multitude of living creatures – plants and animals of all shapes and sizes – roughly 8.7 million eukaryotic species, give or take a million or so.

Then look closer, because most life is invisible to the human eye. A light microscope will reveal the bacteria; an electron microscope, the viruses. These organisms are everywhere.

Unpaired electrons as probes of catalytic systems

Posted on 14. January, 2015.

In the December issue of Science Progress, an overview is provided of the importance of molecular species containing unpaired electrons in catalytic systems, as revealed using ESR spectroscopy. The review aims to demonstrate the considerable extent of scientific progress that has been made in this broad topic during the past few decades.

Perovskites and their potential use in solar energy applications - Free Current Commentary

Posted on 16. September, 2014.

A material may be described as having a perovskite structure if it has same type of crystal structure as perovskite – calcium titanium oxide (CaTiO3) – does (Figure 1). Perovskite was first discovered in 1839 by Gustav Rose, in the Ural mountains in Russia, and is named after the Russian mineralogist L.A. Perovski (1792 –1856), who first characterised the material.

State of the art of photovoltaic technologies  

Posted on 20. August, 2014.

Harvesting solar energy using photovoltaic devices is being increasingly recognised as an essential component of future global renewable energy generation. The finite supply of fossil fuel sources and the detrimental long term effects of carbon dioxide and other emissions, into the Earth’s atmosphere, emphasises the importance of developing and commercialising renewable energy technologies.

Cronobacter: an emergent pathogen causing meningitis to neonates through their feeds

Posted on 4. August, 2014.

The recognition of Cronobacter as a public health concern was raised when powdered infant formula (PIF) was linked to several neonatal meningitis outbreaks. It is an opportunistic pathogen that causes necrotising enterocolitis, infantile septicaemia, and meningitis which carries a high mortality rate among neonates.
