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...
