Energy for the Future: Renewables and Challenges

Wind turbine.

The future of energy production, in particular the transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources, is a topic of utmost importance. Professor Marc Fontecave analyses the key issues of this subject in an editorial article in Angewandte International. The Challenge of the Energy Production The production of ever-increasing amounts of energy is a real challenge […]

Carbon Dioxide Green Sorbents

Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. Copyright Image by Decoded Science, all rights reserved.

Researchers have developed materials that can absorb carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas) produced with a green synthesis. The materials are oligo-urea-based (polymers of urea) and were prepared in a process that followed ten of the twelve principles of green chemistry. Carbon Dioxide Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas that is naturally present in the atmosphere. Since […]

Aging, Inflammation, and Brain Biochemistry


What does it mean to become old? One standard definition is that our bodies become less resistant to disease. The aging process involves chemistry—a rather complex chemistry. However, modern science is at a loss to fully understand it. Moreover, aging well comes with no hard and fast rules.
