AI Approach for Heterogeneous Catalysis

October 04, 2021
A tailored artificial-intelligence approach can be applied to model catalysis. It highlights the underlying physicochemical processes, and accelerates catalyst design.

Water as metal

July 29, 2021
Under normal conditions, pure water is almost an electrical insulator. Water would only become metallic under extreme pressures, such as found in the interior of very large planets or stars. Now an international collaboration has succeeded to create a metallic state of water using a completely different approach.
