PNNL and Argonne researchers developed and tested a chemical process that successfully captures radioactive byproducts from used nuclear fuel so they could be sent to advanced reactors for destruction while also producing electrical power.
Nitrogen oxides, also known as NOx, form when fossil fuels burn at high temperatures. When emitted from industrial sources such as coal power plants, these pollutants react with other compounds to produce harmful smog.
Eric Hoppe, senior scientist, was selected a 2019 American Chemical Society (ACS) fellow. Eric is being recognized for his contributions to analytical chemistry measurements and three decades of volunteer service to the ACS community.
Researchers apply numerical simulations to understand more about a sturdy material and how its basic structure responds to and resists radiation. The outcomes could help guide development of the resilient materials of the future.
Mama and calf humpback whales—considered a vulnerable species that might be entangled in underwater equipment—star in a new animation video that depicts the marine mammals’ scale and movements relative to floating offshore wind farms.
A detailed analysis of blood samples from Ebola patients in Sierra Leone is providing clues about the progression of the effects of the virus and potential treatment pathways. The findings point to a critical role for a molecular pathway.
