Recent Research Topic from Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory: Activated carbons hate to remove metal ions in water?

Posted on : September 30, 2019 [NEW]

Various kinds of materials for adsorption and separation are being developed for the purpose of removing unpleasant odor components in the air and harmful substances in water. Activated carbon (AC) is one of the materials that is frequently used in various purposes such as water purifiers and air conditioner ...

That is hot ice and wondrous strange snow.

How can I change the freezing temperature of water (freezing point)? If you don't mix anything, the water will turn into ice at 0°C when you cool it, but you can easily lower the freezing temperature by mixing it with salt or alcohol. One idea is to use the fact that salt is ejected when salt water ...

Recent Research Topic from Organic Chemistry Laboratory: Control of Plant Growing by Molecules

Is F1-ATPase a rotary motor with nearly 100% efficiency?

Posted on : June 22, 2019 | Modified on : June 25, 2019

  Many active processes in cells are based on the function of molecular motors, which convert chemical (free) energy into work. These molecular motors provide realizations of nanometer-scaled thermodynamic machines and can thereby act as test cases for the recently developed stochastic thermodynamics ...

Hydrophobic effect and hydrophobic interaction

Posted on : May 27, 2019 | Modified on : May 28, 2019

  It is remarked that the solvation thermodynamics characteristic of hydrophobic hydration is actually not so uncommon when the constant-volume solvation process is considered while it is indeed atypical in the constant-pressure process, and what makes water special as a solvent of hydrophobic ...

Challenge on theoretical assessment of a hypothesis on protein folding stability that has been widely believed for 60 years ~The protein intramolecular interactions are suggested as the driving force of protein folding~

Posted on : March 28, 2019 | Modified on : April 1, 2019

Theoretical physical chemistry group from Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Science, Okayama University (Dr. T. Sumi and Prof. K. Koga) developed a computational method to extract the dominant factor of protein folding stability and applied it to a design protein chignolin. On the basis ...

Recent Research Topic from Coordination Chemistry Laboratory: Iron(II) complex showing scan rate dependent spin-crossover behavior

Posted on : January 28, 2019 | Modified on : February 6, 2019

Unpaired electrons do not stably exist on typical elements except for special cases, but unpaired electrons can stably exist on transition metal ions. Among them, in the hexacoordinate octahedral metal complexes of manganese, iron and cobalt, there are two states, a high-spin state where the number ...
