Neodymium is one of the more critical rare earth elements with respect to current availability and is most often used in high performance magnets. In this paper, we compare the virgin production route of these magnets with two hypothetical recycling processes in terms of environmental impact. The first recycling process looks at manual dismantling of(More)
The molecular structure of an iron-containing 18 kDa fragment of duck ovotransferrin, obtained by proteolysis of the intact protein, has been elucidated by protein crystallographic techniques at 2.3 A resolution. This structure supports a mechanism of iron uptake in the intact protein whereby the binding of the synergistic (bi)carbonate anion is followed by(More)
The Ca2+-sensitive photoprotein aequorin and the Ca2+-dependent fluorescent indicators quin 2 and TnCDANZ have been used to investigate contractile processes in single crustacean muscle fibres. The investigations with quin 2 indicate that the free Ca2+ rises to a maximum value before peak force as with aequorin light (approximately 200 msec delay at 12(More)
Quick on the uptake: Following its identification during a targeted search, the intriguing crystal structure of 3,3',4,4'-tetra(trimethylsilylethynyl)biphenyl was investigated. Simple removal of the included solvent provides an organic crystal with an open microporous structure that has a striking similarity to that of zeolite A (see picture). Reversible(More)
We demonstrate, through structural refinement from synchrotron X-ray diffraction data, that the mechanism of the transformation between lithium amide and lithium imide during hydrogen cycling in the important Li-N-H hydrogen storage system is a bulk reversible reaction that occurs in a non-stoichiometric manner within the cubic anti-fluorite-like Li-N-H(More)
The challenge of storing hydrogen at high volumetric and gravimetric density for automotive applications has prompted investigations into the potential of cryo-adsorption on the internal surface area of microporous organic polymers. A range of Polymers of Intrinsic Microporosity (PIMs) has been studied, the best PIM to date (a network-PIM incorporating a(More)
