MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) — Four paramedics working at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have been hospitalized for possible carbon monoxide poisoning. Coffee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lucky Knott tells news outlets it appears the exhaust of a generator used to power the recreational vehicle they were staying in was blocked. One of the paramedics woke up Monday and was able to get help. Three were airlifted to hospitals, while the fourth was taken to an area hospital. Their names and conditions haven't been released.

CO2 electroreduction to ethylene via hydroxide-mediated copper catalysis at an abrupt interface
Carbon dioxide (CO2) electroreduction could provide a useful source of ethylene, but low conversion efficiency, low production rates, and low catalyst stability limit current systems. Here we report that a copper electrocatalyst at an abrupt reaction interface in an alkaline electrolyte reduces CO2 to ethylene with 70% faradaic efficiency at a potential of –0.55 volts versus a reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE). Hydroxide ions on or near the copper surface lower the CO2 reduction and carbon monoxide (CO)–CO coupling activation energy barriers; as a result, onset of ethylene evolution at –0.165 volts vers...

Report: More Than 24 People Have Died From CO Poisoning From Keyless Vehicles
BOSTON (CBS) – According to a new report by the New York Times, since 2006, more than two dozen people have died from carbon monoxide poisoning when a keyless vehicle was accidentally left running inside a garage. Dozens others have gotten sick, some left with brain damage. Keyless ignitions are now standard in over half of cars sold every year. Instead of turning a key this way or that to turn your car on or off, now you can do it with the push of a button, as long as the so-called fob is around. Quieter engines may lull people into believing that the car is turned off, and if you leave the car running in a closed g...

A bound reaction intermediate sheds light on the mechanism of nitrogenase
Reduction of N2 by nitrogenases occurs at an organometallic iron cofactor that commonly also contains either molybdenum or vanadium. The well-characterized resting state of the cofactor does not bind substrate, so its mode of action remains enigmatic. Carbon monoxide was recently found to replace a bridging sulfide, but the mechanistic relevance was unclear. Here we report the structural analysis of vanadium nitrogenase with a bound intermediate, interpreted as a μ2-bridging, protonated nitrogen that implies the site and mode of substrate binding to the cofactor. Binding results in a flip of amino acid glutamine 176, wh...
