A multi-institution research team found how the protein environment surrounding some enzymes can alter the direction of a cellular reaction, as well as its rate—up to six orders of magnitude—in a phenomenon referred to as catalytic bias.
At PNNL, subsurface science inhabits two separate but interlocking worlds. One looks at basic science, the other at applied science and engineering. Both are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Verizon recently announced a partnership that will make Pacific Northwest National Laboratory the U.S. Department of Energy’s first national laboratory with Verizon 5G ultra wideband wireless technology.
The world’s largest scientific society honored Sue B. Clark, a PNNL and WSU chemist, for contributions toward resolving our legacy of radioactive waste, advancing nuclear safeguards, and developing landmark nuclear research capabilities.
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.
