Steering chemical reactions with laser pulses
The properties of the laser pulse determine which chemical final products are created. Chemists can choose which molecules they want to take part in a chemical reaction – but the result is usually determined by the physical and chemical properties of ...
Global photosynthesis: New insight will help predict future climate change
A new insight into global photosynthesis, the chemical process governing how ocean and land plants absorb and release carbon dioxide, has been revealed in research that will assist scientists to more accurately assess future climate change. In a paper ...
