Synthetic Organelle Shows How Tiny Puddle-Organs in our Cells Work

Georgia Institute of Technology

Imagine your liver being just a big puddle. Some organelles in your cells are exactly that including prominent ones like the nucleolus. Now a synthetic organelle engineered in a lab at Georgia Tech shows how such puddle organs can carry out complex life-sustaining reaction chains.

Simulations Enable “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure” Stereochemistry

University of Utah

“We used our data-driven tools to derive significant insight into how the process works that allows us to design the correct additives to get the desired outcomes,” Sigman said. The results allow chemists to control which stereochemical product comes out of the reaction, simply by selecting the right ligand. It’s more than just a laboratory convenience, though. The study also reveals much more about how this important chemical process works.

After 150 years, a Breakthrough in Understanding the Conversion of CO2 to Electrofuels

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, Columbia Engineers are first to observe how CO2 is activated at the electrode-electrolyte interface; their finding shifts the catalyst design from trial-and-error paradigm to a rational approach and could lead to alternative, cheaper, and safer renewable energy storage.
