CO2 to light olefins conversion by cascade reactions over bifunctional nanocatalysts: an ‘all X-ray’ approach

In a waste-to-value perspective, CO2 can represent a sustainable carbon source to produce light olefins, representing key building blocks for petrochemical industry. CASCADE-X proposes an ultimate approach to directly convert CO2 to light olefins through cascade reactions over a bi-functional cat...

Network representations of contextual memory in a neocortical circuit

How are memories formed and how do we remember them? Despite decades of memory research, these are still unanswered questions. There is consensus that the hippocampus is a key circuit for forming new memories. According to the classical model, memories that initially depend on the hippocampus, ma...

Mixed-phase clouds and climate (MC2) – from process-level understanding to large-scale impacts

The importance of mixed-phase clouds (i.e. clouds in which liquid and ice may co-exist) for weather and climate has become increasingly evident in recent years. We now know that a majority of the precipitation reaching Earth’s surface originates from mixed-phase clouds, and the way cloud phase ch...

What is the role of the axonal connections between the hemispheres in sensory processing?

Why does our brain have two hemispheres and what is the role of connections between them? While it is well known that in humans, each hemisphere has functional specializations, we have little mechanistic understanding of how circuits communicate across the corpus callosum that connects the hemisp...
