Researchers create successful predictions of combustion reaction ratesJanuary 5, 2015

Researchers at Argonne and Sandia National Laboratories have demonstrated, for the first time, a method to successfully predict pressure-dependent chemical reaction rates, an important breakthrough in combustion and atmospheric chemistry that is expected to benefit auto and engine manufacturers, oil and gas utilities and other industries that employ combustion models.

Silver particles improve performance of battery materialDecember 16, 2014

Argonne materials scientist Larry Curtiss is part of an Argonne team working on a new battery architecture that uses lithium-oxygen bonds as it stores and releases energy, and silver as the metal catalyst that makes this possible.

Argonne researchers make new study of special type of chemical bondSeptember 29, 2014

Scientists have known for some time about the presence of agostic interactions involving lithium, carbon, and hydrogen atoms, but Argonne scientists wanted to determine what happened when an aluminum-containing fragment was appended to one of these organolithium complexes to form a lithium-aluminate compound.
