Ammonium Perrhenate – an ammonium salt of perrhenic acid

The ammonium salt of perrhenic acid, NH4ReO4, is ammonium perrhenate (APR). It is the most commonly traded form of rhenium. It is a white salt that is soluble in ethanol and water and only slightly soluble in NH4Cl. It was first described shortly after rhenium was discovered. It is an intermediat.....

Using the Coldest Material in the Universe to Measure the World’s Tiniest Magnetic Fields

Using the Coldest Material in the Universe to Measure the World’s Tiniest Magnetic Fields

A team of researchers from ICFO and Aalto University have discovered magnetic signals undetected by any other sensor technology using atoms only a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero. Magnetometers are devices that measure the direction, strength, or relative changes of magnetic fields.....

The Process is Designed to Remove Ammonia from Wastewater

The Process is Designed to Remove Ammonia from Wastewater

Engineers have created a high-performance nanowire catalyst that extracts ammonia and solid ammonia (fertilizer) from nitrate, which is a frequent contaminant in industrial effluent and polluted groundwater. A smattering of ruthenium atoms on a mesh of copper nanowires could be the first step tow.....

Thousands of Undiscovered Mammal Species May Be Hidden In Plain Sight, New Research Finds

Since the 1700s, taxonomy has been the study of how living entities relate to one another as species. Taxonomists treat each species as a group of organisms that have common biological traits, despite the fact that scientists and philosophers have long argued about what constitutes a species. Bec.....
