By Nicole Johnson:: A team of researchers have uncovered a seeding method that simplifies the synthesis process and results in spontaneous pillaring of zeolites. This may facilitate improved selectivity in petrochemical catalysts with reduced carbon build up, which means greater yield and longer lifecycles.

By None:: UH researchers offer conclusive research for understanding how bacteria found in copper mines convert toxic copper ions to stable single-atom copper. Their research demonstrates how copper-resistant bacterium from a copper mine in Brazil convert copper sulfate ions into zero-valent metallic copper.
By None:: New research demonstrates how the supposed benefits of retracting federal oversight on interstate waters and defaulting that responsibility to individual states failed to account for economic and scientific evidence that said otherwise and violated the bounds of justifiable law.
