Soaking up carbon dioxide and turning it into valuable products
Researchers have incorporated molecules of porphyrin CO2 catalysts into the sponge-like crystals of covalent organic frameworks (COFs) to create a molecular system that not only absorbs carbon dioxide, but also selectively reduces it to CO, a primary building block for a wide range of chemical products.

Chemistry professor discovers color sensor compound for anions
A chemistry professor has uncovered a major development in the study of anions, negatively-charged molecules such as chloride, bromide and nitrate, which have strategic roles within the human body. These molecules can also act as pollutants, some of which are vital to our health whilst others might actually harm us. The chemistry behind the detection of anions is still in its infancy and an easy, reliable and robust method of detection has eluded chemists... until now.

Humans may be harmed by endocrine disrupting chemicals released during natural gas mining
(University of Missouri-Columbia) More than 15 million Americans live within one mile of unconventional oil and gas (UOG) operations that combine directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking,' to release natural gas from underground rock. Researchers with the University of Missouri and national colleagues have reviewed research on health effects associated with UOG operations and concluded these activities have potential for environmental release of a complex mixture of endocrine disrupting chemicals that could potentially harm human development.
