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.

Can Solar Fuels Avert A Petroleum Fuel Crisis?

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

The world population uses vast amounts of energy mainly obtained from fossil fuels. Renewable energy from all sources amounts to just above 1% of the total required. In his latest current commentary for Science Progress, Chris Rhodes shows how by capturing even a small amount of the solar radiation striking the top of the earth’s atmosphere, the imminent energy crisis could be averted and carbon emissions dramatically reduced.

Microfluidics and the life sciences

Posted on 25. June, 2012.

As the microelectronic revolution changed the way in which electronic components and circuits were manufactured 50 years ago that led to an explosive growth in the applications of integrated circuits and a birth of new industries, a similar development can be seen with the introduction of miniaturisation in the life sciences with the initial concept of the so-called “miniaturised total analysis system” (μ-TAS), also often called “Lab-on-a-Chip” technology.

Sir William Ramsay and the Noble Gases

Posted on 24. April, 2012.

Sir William Ramsay was one of the world’s leading scientists at the end of the 19th century, and in a spectacular period of research between 1894 and 1898, he discovered five new elements. These were the noble gases, helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon; they added a whole new group to the Periodic Table of the elements, and provided the keystone to our understanding of the electronic structure of atoms, and the way those electrons bind the atoms together into molecules.

Atomic evidence: the foundations of structural molecular biology

Posted on 19. December, 2011.

David S. Goodsell is an Associate Professor of Molecular Biology at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA (E-mail: In his research, he develops computational tools to study the basic principles of biomolecular structure and function. He is author of the Molecule of the Month at the Protein Data Bank, which presents the structure and function of a new protein each month. His illustrated books ‘‘The Machinery of Life’’ and ‘‘Our Molecular Nature’’ explore biological molecules and their diverse roles within living cells, and his book ‘‘Bionanotechnology: Lessons from Nature’’ presents the growing connections between biology and nanotechnology.
