Transition metal phosphides have long been considered a promising alternative to noble metal catalysts due to their cost-effectiveness and abundance. However, challenges such as surface oxidation and complex synthesis processes have hindered their widespread adoption. Dr. Constanze Neumann, a leading researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung, and her team have made significant strides in addressing

Plate tectonics play a crucial role in shaping the Earth’s continental configurations. The lithosphere, which consists of the oceanic and continental crusts and upper mantle, is constantly in motion due to convection processes happening in the softer asthenospheric mantle below. This movement leads to various geological phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and the formation

Planets in the Milky Way can sometimes offer surprises that are both fascinating and a little gross. The recent discovery of hydrogen sulfide in the atmosphere of the exoplanet HD-189733b, similar to the smell of rotten eggs, has opened up new possibilities for understanding the chemical makeup of worlds beyond our Solar System. With this
