Platinum meets its match in quantum dots from coalPlatinum meets its match in quantum dots from coal
Rice University’s cheap hybrid outperforms rare metal as fuel-cell catalyst
Chemist James Tour created dots known as GQDs from coal last year and have now combined these nanoscale dots with microscopic sheets of graphene, the one-atom-thick form of carbon, to create a hybrid that could greatly cut the cost of generating energy with fuel cells. (September 30, 2014)

Study: Biochar alters water flow to improve sand and clayStudy: Biochar alters water flow to improve sand and clay
Research shines light on soil additive’s seemingly contradictory benefits
As more gardeners and farmers add ground charcoal, or biochar, to soil to both boost crop yields and counter global climate change, a new study by researchers at Rice University and Colorado College could help settle the debate about one of biochar’s biggest benefits. (September 24, 2014)
