New Efficient, Low-Temperature Catalyst for Converting Water and CO to Hydrogen Gas and CO2

Slide1.jpg

Scientists have developed a new low-temperature catalyst for producing high-purity hydrogen gas while simultaneously using up carbon monoxide (CO). The discovery could improve the performance of fuel cells that run on hydrogen fuel but can be poisoned by CO.

Identified Brain Circuitry Bridges Neural and Behavioral Roles in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Specific cerebral circuitry bridges chemical changes deep in the brain and the more outward behavioral expressions associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which could lead to more objective biomarkers for the disorder, according to a comprehensive review of rapidly changing data published June 22 in The New England Journal of Medicine.
