Due to the role of CO2 in the greenhouse effect and environmental management, its reaction with water has been studied extensively. But the same cannot be said for reactivity in the supercritical CO2 (scCO2) phase. In this phase, conjugate
Researchers adding water to the surface of alumina measured some surprising results that raise important questions regarding the fundamental reactions that govern chemical transformations of aluminum oxides and hydroxides.
Scientists at the Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) sort out which compounds are present and their concentrations, providing an important new tool with broad applicability.
