Super-réseaux supramoléculaires : suprafonctions pour l’électronique et les technologies d’énergie propre

Des chercheurs du Laboratoire de nanochimie de l’Institut de science et d’ingénierie supramoléculaires (Université de Strasbourg et CNRS), en collaboration avec l’Université Jiao-tong de Shanghai (Chine) et l’Université Soochow (Chine), ont mis au point une stratégie moléculaire permettant de renforcer les performances électroniques et catalytiques des matériaux bidimensionnels (2D). Ces résultats ont été … Continue Reading ››

Supramolecular superlattices: suprafunctions for electronics and clean energy technologies

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg and CNRS (France), in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) and Soochow University (China), have developed a molecular strategy to boost the electronic and catalytic performance of two-dimensional (2D) materials. These results have been published in Nature Communications.

When rocks lay the groundwork for the origin of life

Mineral catalysts found in deep-sea vents convert CO2 and H2 to biomolecules, showing striking parallels to known biological pathways

An international collaboration of researchers in Germany, France and Japan investigated the catalytic activities of minerals found in deep-sea hydrothermal vents. The results suggest that mineral-driven chemical reactions might be closely mapped onto microbial carbon metabolism. … Continue Reading ››
