(Via ICIQ) Alcohols and sugars are among the main derivatives of non-edible biomass. The transformation of these molecules into hydrogen or other chemicals by reforming technologies could lead to a more sustainable future. However, hydrogen production from long-chain alcohols has a very complex reaction networks. Even a simple alcohol like ethylene glycol goes through 75 intermediates and 250 different possible reactions. Understanding this mecha ...

(Via IAC) Researchers at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) have identified, using the Gran Telescopio de Canarias (GTC) one of the first stars formed in the Milky Way, which is a key to the formation of the first chemical elements in the Galaxy. The calculations needed to carry out this study were executed in the RES supercomputer LaPalma. The results of this research were published in the scientific journal The Astrophysical Journal ...

(Via ScienceNode) Turbulence is present in most fluids, like the ocean currents, the air around aircraft wings, the blood in our arteries or smoke from chimneys. Since turbulence is so prevalent, its study has many industrial and environmental applications. For instance, scientists model turbulence to improve vehicle design, diagnose atherosclerosis, build safer bridges, and reduce air pollution. Caused by excess energy that cannot be absorbed ...
