Push and pull Brown University researchers have shown that the effects of external strain on a catalyst depend on the internal strain exerted by chemical reactants. That new theoretical framework could be useful in optimizing catalysts for different reactions. Peterson lab / Brown University

New theory shows how strain makes for better catalysts

According to a new theory developed by Brown scientists stretching or compressing metal, catalysts can make them perform better. Applying a strain to metal catalysts...

A New Way to Harness Wasted Methane

Methane, the largest component of natural gas get wastes 150 billion cubic meters per year during the process called flaring. Thus it leads to almost 400 million...
