Engineers go microbial to store energy, sequester CO2

Cornell bioengineers have found a way to efficiently absorb and store large-scale, renewable energy from the sun, while sequestering carbon dioxide to use as a biofuel: Let microbes do the work.

‘Roaming’ molecular fragments captured in real time

An international research team made the first direct observation, in real time, of an elusive phenomenon – “roaming” reactions, in which a chemical compound breaks apart and its molecular fragments drift chaotically in orbit before re-forming into new compounds.
