Aluminum Clusters Shut Down Molecular Fuel FactoryExternal link

Despite decades of industrial use, the exact chemical transformations occurring within zeolites, a common material used in the conversion of oil to gasoline, remain poorly understood. Now scientists have found a way to locate-with atomic precision-spots within the material where chemical reactions take place, and how these spots shut down. Read More »
