NASA ’s Climate Communications Might Not Recover From The Damage Of Trump’s Systemic Suppression
Before former U.S. President Donald Trump incited a hostile insurrection against the Capitol, he’d already smashed wrecking balls through the ranks of government agencies. Among the many casualties was the truth about climate science, which NASA was routinely prevented from sharing with the public that supports it. I was the senior science editor for NASA’s Global Climate Change website and witnessed the impact of science suppression firsthand. I’d been at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), one of 10 NASA centers, for a decade when, three weeks into the Trump Administration, on Feb. 16, 2017, t...

They measured downtown air quality monitoring station data from eight Canadian cities and compared their concentration levels of nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide between February and August 2020 to the figures recorded over the same period in 2018 and 2019. They also used satellite imagery and urban transportation fuel consumption figures to investigate emissions traffic congestion data provided by tracking technology embedded in phones and cars worldwide.

A hydrophobic FeMn@Si catalyst increases olefins from syngas by suppressing C1 by-products
In this study, a core-shell FeMn@Si catalyst with excellent hydrophobicity was designed to hinder the formation of CO2 and CH4. The hydrophobic shell protected the iron carbide core from oxidation by water generated during FTS and shortened the retention of water on the catalyst surface, restraining the side reactions related to water. Furthermore, the electron transfer from manganese to iron atoms boosted olefin production and inhibited CH4 formation. The multifunctional catalyst could suppress the total selectivity of CO2 and CH4 to less than 22.5% with an olefin yield of up to 36.6% at a CO conversion of 56.1%. (Source: ScienceNOW)

In situ manipulation of the active Au-TiO2 interface with atomic precision during CO oxidation
The interface between metal catalyst and support plays a critical role in heterogeneous catalysis. An epitaxial interface is generally considered to be rigid, and tuning its intrinsic microstructure with atomic precision during catalytic reactions is challenging. Using aberration-corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy, we studied the interface between gold (Au) and a titanium dioxide (TiO2) support. Direct atomic-scale observations showed an unexpected dependence of the atomic structure of the Au-TiO2 interface with the epitaxial rotation of gold nanoparticles on a TiO2 surface during carbon monoxide (CO)...

Rotational resonances in the H2CO roaming reaction are revealed by detailed correlations
Since its discovery 16 years ago, roaming has become a ubiquitous mechanism in molecular photochemistry. Its general features are now understood, but little detail is known about how the potential energy surface (PES) determines reaction outcomes. We performed detailed experiments on formaldehyde (H2CO) photodissociation and determined fully correlated quantum state distributions of the molecular hydrogen and carbon monoxide products. These experiments reveal previously undetected bimodal carbon monoxide rotational distributions. Insights from classical trajectory calculations demonstrate that these features arise from res...
