Atomic-layered Au clusters on {alpha}-MoC as catalysts for the low-temperature water-gas shift reaction
The water-gas shift (WGS) reaction (where carbon monoxide plus water yields dihydrogen and carbon dioxide) is an essential process for hydrogen generation and carbon monoxide removal in various energy-related chemical operations. This equilibrium-limited reaction is favored at a low working temperature. Potential application in fuel cells also requires a WGS catalyst to be highly active, stable, and energy-efficient and to match the working temperature of on-site hydrogen generation and consumption units. We synthesized layered gold (Au) clusters on a molybdenum carbide (α-MoC) substrate to create an interfacial cata...

Medical isotope producer Shine Medical raises $27.2m
Shine Medical Technologies said last week in an SEC filing that it raised $27.2 million in a round of debt financing. Over 200 investors have contributed to the $29 million offering, which made its 1st sale on October 11, 2013. Monona, Wis.-based Shine Medical makes radioactive isotopes for medical diagnostic purposes such as detecting and treating cancer, according to the company’s website. Its primary product is molybdenum-99, a parent isotope to the light-emitting element, technetium-99m, which is given to nearly 50,000 Americans every day to diagnose cancer and heart disease. Technet...

New findings boost promise of molybdenum sulfide for hydrogen catalysis
(North Carolina State University) Researchers from North Carolina State University, Duke University and Brookhaven National Laboratory have found that molybdenum sulfide (MoS2) holds more promise than previously thought as a catalyst for producing hydrogen to use as a clean energy source. Specifically, the researchers found that the entire surface of MoS2 can be used as a catalyst, not just the edges of the material. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

[Report] Coordination-induced weakening of ammonia, water, and hydrazine X –H bonds in a molybdenum complex
Although scores of transition metal complexes incorporating ammonia or water ligands have been characterized over the past century, little is known about how coordination influences the strength of the nitrogen-hydrogen and oxygen-hydrogen bonds. Here we report the synthesis of a molybdenum ammonia complex supported by terpyridine and phosphine ligands that lowers the nitrogen-hydrogen bond dissociation free energy from 99.5 (gas phase) to an experimentally measured value of 45.8 kilocalories per mole (agreeing closely with a value of 45.1 kilocalories per mole calculated by density functional theory). This bond weakening ...

Atomically thick metal membranes
For the first time researchers have shown that freestanding metal membranes consisting of a single layer of atoms can be stable under ambient conditions. The success and promise of atomically thin carbon, in which carbon atoms are arranged in a honeycomb lattice, also known as graphene has triggered enormous enthusiasm for other two dimensional materials, for example, hexagonal boron nitride and molybdenum sulphide. These materials share a common structural aspect, namely, they are layered materials that one can think of as individual atomic planes that can be pulled away from their bulk 3D structure.
