AU scientists develop safer method for handling high-risk reagents

Pyrophoric chemicals like tert-Butyllithium are used on a daily basis in many laboratories. These reagents are very sensitive towards air and moisture, and serious accidents have occured when handling the reagents inappropriately. CADIAC scientist has developed an important improvement in the protocol, which makes it safer for also undergraduates…

Catalysts for Reduction of Sulphur Emissions under Pressure in Nature Communications

Strict regulations for Sulphur emissions call for improved catalytic processes of reducing Sulphur content in crude oil. A publication in Nature Communications by Jeppe Vang Lauritsen and Bjørk Hammer, Aarhus University, shine light on how MoS2-based catalysts are able to remove Sulphur.

Coincidentally(?), the rocket on the students' t-shirts tied in rather nicely with the Dean's speech, which linked the Open Science platform with the research behind the Apollo 11 mission. In this photo, the students are listening to lead materials specialist Allan Hjarbæk Holm from Grundfos, who is talking about the Grundfos group's long-term goals and expectations in connection with Open Science.
