The scientists used various characterization techniques to study the structure and composition of Fe-Ni films dealloyed by an Mg film. HAADF imaging is sensitive to the atomic number of the elements in the sample; elements with a higher atomic number scatter more electrons, causing them to appear brighter in the resulting greyscale image (a). For the energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) maps (b), the different colors correspond to individual elements and the color intensity to their local relative concentration. Scanning TEM analysis revealed the formation of two phases: pure Fe (magenta) and an Ni-Mg (yellow-purple) composite. Image: Materials Horizons. Scientists have developed a new approach for making metal-metal composites and po.

The "synthetic" minerals of calcium titanate structure we call perovskites have several unique properties. Now, a team in Japan has demonstrated their potential in the production of ammonia directly from hydrogen and nitrogen perhaps opening up a whole new approach to the manufacture of this industrially and agrochemically important gas. Ammonia is used widely an industrial reagent and in the formation of agricultural fertilizers, there are also examples of it being used as a "clean" energy carrier for hydrogen gas for fuel cells. Masaaki Kitano and his team at Tokyo Tech point out that the main barrier to a facile synthesis of ammonia from hydrogen and nitrogen gas is the surmounting the high energy barrier needed to split diatomic nitroge.

Building sophisticated battery electrode architectures using nanomaterials requires innovative manufacturing approaches, such as spray deposition. Photo: Drexel University. The challenge of building an energy future that preserves and improves the planet is a massive undertaking, and it all hinges on charged particles moving through invisibly small materials. Scientists and politicians have recognized the need for an urgent and substantial shift in the world's mechanisms of energy production and consumption in order to arrest its momentum toward environmental cataclysm. A course correction of this magnitude is certainly daunting, but a new paper in suggests that the technological path to achieving sustainability has already been paved, it's.
