Microbial life in the deep subsurface redefines the limits of life in the face of energy limitation and heat stress. Who survives deep down, and how? A deep-drilling expedition to hydrothermal Guaymas Basin is exploring these questions from multiple angles.
Despite the rich coordination chemistry, hydroxylamines are rarely used as ligands for transition metal coordination compounds. Here we designed macrocyclic poly-N-hydroxylamines (crown-hydroxylamines) that form complexes containing a d-metal ion and coordinate by up to six hydroxylamine fragments.
Pakistan is a typical arid region where enhanced rainfall is more likely to cause floods. New research shows that the Middle East warming is increasing Pakistan's exposure to such disasters.
Efficient optical plasmonic tweezer-controlled single-molecule SERS characterization of pH-dependent amylin species in aqueous milieus
Direct time-resolved observation of surface-bound carbon dioxide radical anions on metallic nanocatalysts
A comprehensive understanding of the catalytic CO2 reduction mechanism has been limited by challenging direct time-resolved observation of the elementary steps. Here, we use pulse radiolysis to observe the stabilization processes towards well-defined nanoscale metallic sites.
