Via Gina Mantica: Organic materials that convert electricity into light are greener than the more common inorganic materials often used in light emitting diodes, or LEDs. But organic materials for large scale display and lighting applications are more challenging to develop due to the cost and energy required for their production. Artificial intelligence can help […]

Professor Elliott Published in Nature Communications: Enzymatic Discovery Cools a ‘Hot’ Intermediary
Enzymatic Discovery Cools a ‘Hot’ Intermediary In the world around us enzymes perform the wizardry of allowing reactions that should occur, to do so in a timely fashion. Enzymes that transform hydrogen peroxide often generate a highly reactive, ‘hot’ intermediate along the way, which will transform another molecule in a startling feat of chemistry. In […]
