Water leads to chemical that gunks up biofuels production
Trying to understand the chemistry that turns plant material into the same energy-rich gasoline and diesel we put in our vehicles, researchers have discovered that water in the conversion process helps form an impurity which, in turn, slows down key chemical reactions.

Scarcity of elements in products like smartphones needs addressing, say scientists
Many of today's technological innovations from the iPhone to electric motors for hybrid cars require the use of materials -- elements -- that are scarce or difficult to obtain. As demand for these devices grows, the problem of dwindling critical element supplies must be addressed. That's the conclusion of a white paper being discussed at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.

Toyota to market hydrogen vehicles in 2015; Linde starts small-series production of fueling stations
Carmakers have touted the eco-friendly virtues of zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, but commercialization was hindered by high costs. Now, Toyota has cut its cost by 90 percent and Linde AG will start small-series production of hydrogen fueling stations. Some stations will open in California in time for the Toyota Highlander hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle debut in 2015. A press conference will be held during the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.
