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
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
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
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
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."

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
"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
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
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
A team of Japanese and South Korean
researchers has devised a means of making solid
walls virtually transparent to
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
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
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
In other words, holes covered by
a membrane make walls effectively invisible to
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
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
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...

an enzyme called MMP, which is found in tumours.
Removing the tail activates the

times higher than normal immobilized activated
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

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
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

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
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, Presscore.ca 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
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
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
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...
