Scientists Study Catalytic Converter Reactions Under Close-To-Reality Conditions

How do catalytic converters work? Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) studied the reactions under close-to-reality conditions: With the help of X-rays, they observed the interactions of the nitrogen monoxide pollutant molecule and of the reduction agent ammonia with iron and copper centers, i.e. transition metal ions in Fe-ZSM-5 and Cu-SSZ-13, where the reaction takes place.

Simple Method to Efficiently Recycle Rare Earth Metals

Simple Method to Efficiently Recycle Rare Earth Metals

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a simple, efficient method for recycling of rare earth magnets. These materials are widely used in consumer electronics, however, as their name signifies, they are quite rare. The process of mining and purifying rare earth metals affects the ecology, and is very costly and labor-intensive. [More]
