What can nanotech do for entrepreneurs and job creation?

Nanotechnology is not about making things small, but about making things new. And where there are new things, there are opportunities for entrepreneurs. Yes, the components of nanomaterials and nano-devices are very small, but miniaturization is not the main goal. What makes this technology powerful is its ability to radically change how materials behave and […]

A Perspective on Chemistry Education

One of the most important and strategic activities that IUPAC carries out is to promote the use of best practice and the most effective tools for chemistry education. That education includes public understanding and appreciation of the roles and achievements of chemistry, especially among the young. The Committee on Chemistry Education (CCE) is one of […]

Mesostructured Zeolites: Bridging the Gap Between Zeolites and MCM-41

Challenges for Zeolites Zeolites are aluminosilicate materials with crystalline framework structures. They are very versatile materials that are widely used by chemists both in the lab and in industry. However, their narrow micropores impose important diffusion limitations on large reactant and product molecules approaching or leaving the active sites. This leads to lowered conversion or […]
