Living cells are built so they can let exactly the right substances pass in and out through their membranes. Can the mechanism be copied? At Chalmers University of Technology Andreas Dahlin has accepted the challenge. He is creating smart filters capable of separating and capturing individual molecules.
Anders Nilsson and his fellow researchers are using X-ray lasers to study in real time how chemical catalysis can be used to convert carbon dioxide into ethylene, for example. The team hopes that this knowledge will result in new technologies for local production of fuels and materials. The vision is a more robust society.
