A new method to characterize crude oil corrosion shows that corrosion in acidic crude oils depends on the specific structures of the acid molecules, information that can help improve oil valuation and refining.
This finding demonstrates a path forward to dramatically enhance sensitivity for molecule concentration measurement by magnetic resonance using Overhauser DNP.
Some manmade chemicals feature bonds so strong they could last forever. And that's a life-threatening problem.
Metals plus fatty acids add up to trouble for valuable artwork, but magnets are shedding light on the canvas-marring chemistry.
With a prestigious prize from the National Science Foundation, MagLab chemist Yan-Yan Hu hopes to boost the performance of materials by engineering them with the best possible flaws.
Watch environmental chemist Susan Richardson explain her research into hydraulic fracturing and drinking water.
Researchers have discovered a new method to create encapsulated carbon nanomaterials that contain fluorine. Known as fullerenes, these nanocages are promising candidates for clean energy applications.
If engineers build stronger magnets, scientists promise they will come … and that discoveries will follow.
Water samples collected from the heart of Africa contain clues about carbon cycling worldwide.
A technique called dynamic nuclear polarization is hitting its stride, using electrons to shine a light on complex molecules.
