Alumina Graphene Catalytic Condenser for Programmable Solid Acids
Tzia Ming Onn, et al.
Precise control of electron density at catalyst active sites enables regulation of surface chemistry for the optimal rate and selectivity to products. Here, an ultrathin catalytic film of amorphous alumina (4 nm) was integrated into a catalytic condenser device that enabled tunable electron depletion from the alumina active layer and correspondingly stronger Lewis acidity. The catalytic condenser had the following structure: amorphous alumina/graphene/HfO2 dielectric (70 nm)/p-type Si. Application of positive voltages up to +3 V between graphene and the p-type Si resulted in electrons flowing out of the alumina; positive charge accumulated in the catalyst. Temperature-programmed surface reaction of thermocatalytic isopropanol (IPA) dehydration to propene on the charged alumina surface revealed a shift in the propene formation peak temperature of up to ΔTpeak∼50 °C relative to the uncharged film, consistent with a 16 kJ mol–1 (0.17 eV) reduction in the apparent activation energy. Electrical characterization of the thin amorphous alumina film by ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy indicates that the film is a defective semiconductor with an appreciable density of in-gap electronic states. Density functional theory calculations of IPA binding on the pentacoordinate aluminum active sites indicate significant binding energy changes (ΔBE) up to 60 kJ mol–1 (0.62 eV) for 0.125 e– depletion per active site, supporting the experimental findings. Overall, the results indicate that continuous and fast electronic control of thermocatalysis can be achieved with the catalytic condenser device.
Energy researchers invent chameleon metal that acts like many others
A team of energy researchers led by the University of Minnesota Twin Cities have invented a device that electronically converts one metal so that it behaves like another for use as a catalyst in chemical reactions. The device, called a "catalytic condenser," is the first to demonstrate that alternative materials that are electronically modified to provide new properties can yield faster, more efficient chemical processing.

The invention opens the door for new catalytic technologies using non-precious metal catalysts for important applications such as storing renewable energy, making renewable fuels, and manufacturing sustainable materials.

The research is published online in JACS Au, where it was selected as an Editor's Choice publication. The team is also working with the University of Minnesota Office of Technology Commercialization and has a provisional patent on the device.

Chemical processing for the last century has relied on the use of specific materials to promote the manufacturing of chemicals and materials we use in our everyday lives. Many of these materials, such as precious metals ruthenium, platinum, rhodium, and palladium, have unique electronic surface properties. They can act as both metals and metal oxides, making them critical for controlling chemical reactions.

The general public is probably most familiar with this concept in relation to the uptick in thefts of catalytic converters on cars. Catalytic converters are valuable because of the rhodium and palladium inside them. In fact, palladium can be more expensive than gold.

These expensive materials are often in short supply around the world and have become a major barrier to advancing technology.

In order to develop this method for tuning the catalytic properties of alternative materials, the researchers relied on their knowledge of how electrons behave at surfaces. The team successfully tested a theory that adding and removing electrons to one material could turn the metal oxide into something that mimicked the properties of another.

"Atoms really do not want to change their number of electrons, but we invented the catalytic condenser device that allows us to tune the number of electrons at the surface of the catalyst," said Paul Dauenhauer, a MacArthur Fellow and professor of chemical engineering and materials science at the University of Minnesota who led the research team. "This opens up an entirely new opportunity for controlling chemistry and making abundant materials act like precious materials."

    Ex-welder invents a magnetic wheel
    George Mitchell attaches magnets on seats of miniature wheels to produce electric power...

    Drawn to work
    Enville man perseveres to expand his inventions and garner publicity
    ENVILLE - The light finally came on.
    It was a night last March - George Mitchell kicks himself for not marking down the date. After years of trying and spending, his magnetic device finally turned on the light he had wired to it on a kitchen table.
    He woke up his wife, Donna, and brought her to the kitchen. They hugged.
    Then, the magnets flew off.
    He had hollowed out the rubber in lawnmower tires, glued the magnets inside, duct-taped over the wheel and attached it to a battery-powered motor. But as the wheels spun, some of the magnets broke through the tape and began to bullet through the kitchen.
    One left an indention on the ceiling; another split Donna's hair and got glue in it.
    "George," Donna told him, "no more in the house."
    Now his machine - with a bigger motor and aluminum parts replacing the lawnmower wheels - is in the back of a wood-paneled station wagon parked outside his house near Enville, a small town split between Chester and McNairy counties. The machine can power on two car headlamps propped behind it within a few minutes.
    Mitchell, an amateur inventor, sees the power his machine generates as a new, cleaner form of alternative energy, but he has faced setbacks and skepticism in the nearly decade and a half since his first homemade breakthrough...
    "I thought about Ferris wheels, taking out the seats and replacing them with magnets," he said.
    Mitchell hurried to the store and bought several shower curtains and small, neon-colored plastic wheels meant to be parakeet toys.
    He cut out magnets meant to hold the shower curtains in place and attached them to the wheels, arranging them so that, when placed beside another wheel rigged as such, the magnets pushed against another magnet's opposing side.
    He attached a hand crank to one of the wheels and turned it. When he did, the repulsion caused by the magnets made the other wheels turn. He re-purposed the motor of a card-dealing machine powered by two AA batteries to replace the hand crank.
    His new machine, fine-tuned since its first success, is essentially a larger-scale version of his original design: A motor powered by a car battery spins an aluminum wheel that holds six square magnets - smooth, copper-colored and about the size and thickness of a candy-box chocolate - fastened along its outer edge.
    The force of those magnets cause identical wheels placed on both sides of the motor-powered wheel to spin, powering generators that turn on the two headlamps...

    EISELSTEIN, Paul : Atmospheric Electrical Generator
    March 2, 2011
    Atmospheric Energy Generator Invention needs Funding
    A local inventor has built a new energy source that can provide enough electricity for a small house. The Einsvanian power plant is a generator 3 feet long and wide and 4 feet high in Paul Eiselstein’s garage that runs free from any external source.
    It runs continuously and in a demonstration Friday produced enough electricity to power a portable light and two power tools. “It is a green energy source far better than any solar panel system or fuel cell technology source,” Eiselstein claims. “It produces no pollution, has no exhaust and can run inside a home safely.”
    Eiselstein is keeping the particulars of how his invention operates as a trade secret. In general terms, the generator pulls energy from the atmosphere, converting potential energy to kinetic energy. “There’s an unlimited source there,” the inve ntor explained. “I’ve built several prototypes,” Eiselstein said, admitting his current generator “is not pretty. I wish it was better looking.” Eiselstein is eager to hook up the power plant to his home’s electrical system but says the unit needs more te sting.
    The 1,500-pound generator runs at 5,500 rpms and produces 7,200 watts, 480 volts alternating current. The unit includes a battery to store the power it produces. It makes a humming sound that is about the same volume and pitch as an air conditioner unit. The noise is made by an internal fan and bearings.
    Future models, Eiselstein promised, will be quieter. “And cheaper,” the manufacturer added. “I want to start producing and selling them. I want people to receive their energy from green sources.” Eiselstein said he wants to swap out the combustion port ion — “the polluting part” — of a hybrid car with a more compact version of his generator. To date, Eiselstein estimates he has invested well over $70,000 in his invention.
    “If I had more money I’d build it better — more presentable,” Eiselstein said apologetically. He has recently created a corporation. “I would like to find investors,” the inventor-cum-entrepreneur said. “There are people out there who are interested.”

    Pinholes And Plastic Wrap Send Sound Through Walls
    Common kitchen item erases wall's barrier to sound
    by    Peter Gwynne,
A team of Japanese and South Korean researchers has devised a means of making solid walls virtually transparent to sound.   
    The process relies on drilling small holes in a rigid material, such as a wall, and covering them on one side by a membrane made from the plastic wrap found in any kitchen.
    "The wall with the bare holes seriously hinders the transmission," the team reported in the June 13 issue of Physical Review Letters. "[B]ut with the membrane installed the transmission becomes, as expected, almost as good as with no wall."
    Properly sized, spaced, and tuned, the setup allows the pressure waves responsible for sound to pass through the barrier. In experiments, the system transmitted sound between three-quarters and almost 100 percent of the volume of the original sound source, depending on the size of the holes...
    "I am very excited by these results," said Johan Christensen, a photonic engineer at the Technical University of Denmark who has developed theoretical insights into this process. "The most striking thing they demonstrate is the possibility of squeezing a tremendous amount of sound through extremely small openings."
    The approach the team employed resembles that used for an effect that physicists call extraordinary optical transmission, which was discovered by Thomas Ebbesen of the University of Strasbourg in France in 1998. In this, Wright explained that given the size and spread of holes drilled into a sheet, "tiny sub-wavelength holes in metals can allow more light through than expected."...
    Physicists had already tried to pass sound through solid walls by drilling holes in them, but struggled because the rigid parts of the wall reflected most of the sound under most conditions, Wright said.
    The only way to allow high volumes of sound through the holes is to ensure that the sound waves travel much faster as they pass through the holes than they do before reaching them and after passing through them. Wright's team decided to do that by covering each hole with a membrane of plastic wrap, the same kind used to cover food.
    The plastic film resonates in response to sound passing through each hole. As a result, Wright said, "the pressure on both sides of the hole becomes equal and the energy incident on one side of the wall is funneled through the small holes. This results in efficient transmission and no reflection."
    In other words, holes covered by a membrane make walls effectively invisible to sound...
    In various studies, the team recorded 76 percent, 89 percent, and 97 percent transmission of the volume of sound through the wall with holes covered with the plastic wrap. The percentage depended on the size of the holes in relation to the total area of the wall...
    "By the use of a wall with holes of varying size, one can make a security barrier for efficient oral communication in places like banks or taxis," Wright said. "By squeezing a lot of energy through a single hole, one could make a novel form of acoustic microscope."
    Such an instrument could identify objects far smaller than the wavelength of the sound that impinges on them. It could have application in medical practice as well as research...

Giant Acoustic Concentration by Extraordinary Transmission in Zero-Mass Metamaterials
Jong Jin Park, et al.
We demonstrate 97%, 89%, and 76% transmission of sound amplitude in air through walls perforated with subwavelength holes of areal coverage fractions 0.10, 0.03, and 0.01, respectively, producing 94-, 950-, and 5700-fold intensity enhancements therein. This remarkable level of extraordinary acoustic transmission is achieved with thin tensioned circular membranes, making the mass of the air in the holes effectively vanish. Imaging the pressure field confirms incident-angle independent transmission, thus realizing a bona fide invisible wall. Applications include high-resolution acoustic sensing.

Making steam without boiling water, thanks to nanoparticles
by    David Brown
    It is possible to create steam within seconds by focusing sunlight on nanoparticles mixed into water, according to new research...
    In the apparatus designed by the Rice team, steam forms in a vessel of water long before the water becomes warm to the touch. It is, in effect, possible to turn a container of water into steam before it gets hot enough to boil...
    In the Rice experiment, the researchers stirred a small amount of nanoparticles into water and put the mixture into a glass vessel. They then focused sunlight on the mixture with a lens.
    The nanoparticles — either carbon or gold-coated silicon dioxide beads — have a diameter shorter than the wavelength of visible light. That allows them to absorb most of a wave of light’s energy. If they had been larger, the particles would have scattered much of the light.
    In the focused light, a nanoparticle rapidly becomes hot enough to vaporize the layer of water around it. It then becomes enveloped in a bubble of steam. That, in turn, insulates it from the mass of water that, an instant before the steam formed, was bathing and cooling it.
    Insulated in that fashion, the particle heats up further and forms more steam. It eventually becomes buoyant enough to rise. As it floats toward the surface, it hits and merges with other bubbles
    At the surface, the nanoparticles-in-bubbles release their steam into the air. They then sink back toward the bottom of the vessel. When they encounter the focused light, the process begins again. All of this occurs within seconds.
    In all, about 80 percent of the light energy a nanoparticle absorbs goes into making steam, and only 20 percent is “lost” in heating the water. This is far different from creating steam in a tea kettle. There, all the water must reach boiling temperature before an appreciable number of water molecules fly into the air as steam...
Crocus drug that can kill tumours in one treatment with minimal side effects
by    Fiona Macrae
    A drug derived from plant extracts could wipe out tumours in a single treatment with minimal side effects, according to research...
    The drug, based on colchicine, an extract from the autumn crocus, is at an early stage of development, and has so far been tested only on mice...
    Colchicine has long been known to have anti-cancer properties but has been considered too toxic for use in the human body. To get round this, the researchers attached a chemical ‘tail’ to it, deactivating it until it reaches the cancer.
    Once there, the tail is cut off by an enzyme called MMP, which is found in tumours.
    Removing the tail activates the drug, which then attacks and breaks down the blood vessels supplying the tumours with oxygen and nourishment.
    Cancers use the blood supply to spread around the body and it is hoped that the treatment, called ICT2588, will also combat this...
Scientists Discover New Technique to Remove Fluoride from Drinking Water
by    Andrew Puhanic
...The study, published in the Journal of Chemistry, concluded that the removal of fluoride from drinking water using modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) resulted in a removal efficiency that was 1.35 times higher than normal immobilized activated alumina...
    It was discovered that MIAA, at 20 +/- degrees Celsius has the capacity to remove more than 95% of fluoride from water. In fact, the adsorption capacity of MIAA was much higher (0.76?mg/g) when compared to the adsorption capacity of activated charcoal (0.47?mg/g) for the same concentration fluoride samples.

Scientists Produce Hydrogen for Fuel Cells Using an Inexpensive  Catalyst Under Real-World Conditions
...Cambridge researchers found that a simple catalyst containing cobalt, a relatively inexpensive and abundant metal, operates as an active catalyst in pH neutral water and under atmospheric O2.
    Dr Reisner said: "Until now, no inexpensive molecular catalyst was known to evolve H2 efficiently in water and under aerobic conditions. However, such conditions are essential for use in developing green hydrogen as a future energy source under industrially relevant conditions.
    "Our research has shown that inexpensive materials such as cobalt are suitable to fulfil this challenging requirement. Of course, many hurdles such as the rather poor stability of the catalyst remain to be addressed, but our finding provides a first step to produce 'green hydrogen' under relevant conditions."
    The results show that the catalyst works under air and the researchers are now working on a solar water splitting device, where a fuel H2 and the by-product O2 are produced simultaneously...
Scientists remotely activate and deactivate genes with radio waves
By    Madison Ruppert
    ...Currently the lead author of the study, Jeffrey Friedman, says that this will be applied to research, allowing scientists to manipulate cells in a non-invasive manner...
    This study, called “Radio-Wave Heating of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Can Regulate Plasma Glucose in Mice” was published in Science earlier this month.
    The process which Friedman and his colleagues used involved coated iron oxide nanoparticles with antibodies which then would bind to a modified version of an ion channel on the surface of cells.
    The target was a modified version of the temperature-sensitive ion channel known as TRPV1 and the researchers injected the particles into tumors growing under the skin of the mice being studied.
    The researchers then utilized a magnetic field created by a piece of hardware somewhat like a downsized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device to heat the nanoparticles.
    Low-frequency radio waves targeted the nanoparticles and heated them to 42 degrees Celsius, at which point the ion channel was activated, allowing calcium to flow into the cells and trigger secondary signals, which then went on to activate an engineered calcium-sensitive gene which produced insulin.
    After a mere 30 minutes of being exposed to the low-frequency radio waves, the insulin levels in the mice increased and their blood sugar levels dropped as well...

Water Powered Car Hits Mainstream in Pakistan
by    Robert Lee
    Today, the Times of India reported: "Members of Pakistani parliament, scientists, and students alike watched in awe as Waqar Ahmad, a Pakistani engineer, successfully demonstrated a working water powered car in Islamabad." Earlier videos show him apparently running a motorcycle.
    Members of the Pakistani parliament, scientists, and students alike watched in awe as Waqar Ahmad, a Pakistani engineer, successfully demonstrated a working water powered car in Islamabad. With just one liter of water, Ahmad claims a 1000 cc car could cover a distance of 40 km, or a motorbike could travel 150 km.
    Ahmad's 'Water Fuel Kit Project' utilizes a hydrogen bonding technique with distilled water, creating hydrogen to power the vehicle. If realized on a massive scale, Ahmad's invention could seriously challenge the current energy paradigm, and could usher in a new way of thinking about energy in general.
    First reported today by the Times of India, the promising exhibition took place on Thursday, as a Pakistani cabinet subcommittee member praised the technology. A stunned audience sat in astonishment when Religious Affairs minister, Syed Khurshid Ahmad Shah, proclaimed Ahmad's water car was "this years' Independence Day gift to the nation."
    This is not the first time a water powered car has been proven to work. Nearly a year ago, on July 31st, 2011, broke a story on Genepax, a Japanese company that unveiled a car that can run on river, rain or sea water, and even Japanese tea. A subsequent article goes on to state, "The key to the Genepax system is its membrane electrode assembly (or MEA), which contains a material that’s capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen."
Dream come true? A car that can run on water
    ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani engineer has successfully developed a unique technology that uses water as fuel in vehicles instead of petrol or CNG, a feat once considered a farfetched dream. Waqar Ahmad drove his car using water as fuel on Thursday during a demonstration for Pakistani parliamentarians, scientists and students.
    He claimed that on one litre of water a 1000 CC car can cover a distance of 40 km and a motorbike can run up to 150 km using this technology.
    Ahmad said cars could be driven by a system fueled by water instead of petrol or CNG. The onlookers were taken aback when they saw the dream car and a cabinet subcommittee lauded Ahmad's 'Water Fuel Kit Project'. Religious affairs minister Syed Khurshid Ahmad Shah, panel panel, said Ahmad would have their full support, calling it "this years's Independence Day gift to the nation".
    The water fueling system is a technology in which 'hydrogen bonding' with distilled water produces hydrogen gas to run the car. 
Pakistan Revels in Boast of Water-Run Car
    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — In a nation thirsting for energy, he loomed like a messiah: a small-town engineer who claimed he could run a car on water.
    The assertion — based on the premise that he had discovered a way to easily split the oxygen and hydrogen atoms in water molecules with almost no energy — would, if proven, represent a stunning breakthrough for physics and a near-magical solution to Pakistan’s desperate power crisis.
    “By the grace of Allah, I have managed to make a formula that converts less voltage into more energy,” the professed inventor, Agha Waqar Ahmad, said in a telephone interview. “This invention will solve our country’s energy crisis and provide jobs to hundreds of thousands of people.”
    Established scientists have debunked his spectacular claims, first made one month ago, saying they violate ironclad laws of physics.
    But across Pakistan, where crippling electricity cuts have left millions drenched in the sweat of a powerless summer, and where there is hunger for tales of homegrown glory, the shimmering mirage of a “water car” received a broad and serious embrace... September 2012
