Spectroscopic Studies Confirm Creation of Metalloenzyme with Novel Catalytic FunctionsFriday, May 20, 2022
Spectroscopic Studies Confirm Creation of Metalloenzyme with Novel Catalytic FunctionsEnzymes are nature’s catalysts. They control chemical reactions with exquisite precision and speed, something that chemists strive—but often fail—to do with catalysts they create in the lab. In new research, a team of chemists from Johns Hopkins University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Universitat de Girona bridged the worlds of biology and synthetic chemistry to harness the power of a metal-containing enzyme to perform a chemical synthesis that is faster, more enantioselective and more sustainable than the current synthetic approach.

Discovery Uncovers Need for Ammonia Emission RegulationsWednesday, May 18, 2022
Discovery Uncovers Need for Ammonia Emission RegulationsA discovery by former Carnegie Mellon Ph.D. student, Mingyi Wang, leading a large collaborative team, sheds light on one way new particles are forming in the upper troposphere. The study, published in Nature, reveals an unexpected volatile reaction between nitric acid, sulfuric acid, and ammonia, synergistically creating new particles at a rapid rate. The findings suggest that in addition to carbon dioxide, there are other compounds in need of attention and regulation.
