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.

Gastrointestinal Diseases of Napoleon in Saint Helena: causes of death

Posted on 26. February, 2014.

One hundred and eighty one years after the death of Napoleon I, the circumstances of his death remain very controversial. Until relatively recently, it was assumed that he had died of stomach cancer. This diagnosis was essentially supported by the data in the remarkable autopsy performed and reported by his last doctor in Saint Helena, Francesco Antommarchi.

Free to read in Science Progress - Chemistry in the clouds: the role of aerosols in atmospheric chemistry

Posted on 24. February, 2014.

Ever since the discovery of the ozone hole over the Antarctic and the recognition of the damaging effects of acid rain, the role of atmospheric aerosol particles in determining the chemical balance of the atmosphere has received much attention.

An outline of object-oriented philosophy

Posted on 21. February, 2014.

The term “object-oriented philosophy” was initially borrowed in jest from computer science, but took on a life of its own. It is one variant of a broader philosophical trend known as speculative realism. Together these schools raise interesting questions about the relationship between philosophy and science, and the role of metaphysics in human knowledge.

From Test Tube to Turner: The Role of The Chemist in Art

Posted on 18. February, 2014.

Most modern art galleries arrange their collections in chronological order and to the average viewer it often the changes in style, fashion or subject matter that is indicative of the passage of time. Far less noted, although possibly more obvious is the change in paint which occurred.

Applications of bioremediation and phytoremediation

Posted on 17. February, 2014.

The decontamination of soil and water from pollutants using microorganisms is known as bioremediation. This can occur naturally or be stimulated, e.g. by the application of fertilisers.  More recently it has been shown that through the addition of matched microbe strains to the medium, the effectiveness of the resident microbe population to decompose contaminants may be enhanced.

Photoinduced electron transfer processes of functionalized nanocarbons; fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene

Posted on 14. January, 2014.

To solve the energy demands for a sustainable society, clean solar energy is crucial. Thus, finding methods for efficient light energy conversion is important. Molecular devices employing composites of nanocarbons such as fullerenes, single wall carbon nanotubes and graphene are promising. Light-induced electron-transfer processes of these nanocarbons hybridized with photosensitizers are more favourable than ordinary molecules.

Science Progress

Posted on 20. December, 2013.

In 2013, Science Progress has continued to deliver topical and diverse reviews by leading authorities from across the world.

In the latest issue, Professor Rod Bilton discusses the impact of climate change and diet on the evolution of human energy metabolism in “Averting comfortable lifestyle crises”.

Through the last three millennia observant physicians have noted the association of inappropriate diets with increased incidence of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and over the past 300 years doctors in the UK observed that overeating increased the incidence of these diseases.
