Perovskites for solar cells produced by mechanochemistry

Perovskites, substances that perfectly absorb light, are the future of solar energy. The opportunity for their rapid dissemination has just increased thanks to a cheap and environmentally safe method of production of these materials. Rather than in solutions at a high temperature, perovskites can now be synthesized by solid-state mechanochemical processes: by grinding powders.

Stable 'superoxide' opens the door to a new class of batteries

While lithium-ion batteries have transformed our everyday lives, researchers are currently trying to find new chemistries that could offer even better energy possibilities. One of these chemistries, lithium-air, could promise greater energy density but has certain drawbacks as well.

Researchers control cell adhesion using light

In order to get a little closer towards unravelling the mystery of cell adhesion, chemists developed a model system where they are able to control when and where cells adhere to in an extremely precise way.
