Fundamental researchers offer new ways to sort molecules for clean energy and more

Chemical separation accounts for 10 to 15 percent of the nation's energy consumption. That energy use has environmental costs, including tons of carbon dioxide released each year. Researchers are tackling the energy demands of separation by focusing on the underlying science. They are answering questions about how and why the targeted materials behave.

Watching molecular machines at work

A new technology makes it possible to test how complex molecules function by manipulating them systematically. Add to this a new electron microscopy technique that brings resolution down to the atomic level - and indeed scientists are now able to directly look at these machines.
