Recent Research from Institute for Chemical Physics Highlight Findings in Chalcogens

June 17, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Chalcogens have been published. According to news originating from Chernogolovka, Russia, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The kinetics of the reduction of molecular oxygen dissolved in water with nanocomposites consisting of an ion-exchange matrix and copper nanoparticles deposited in it in various amounts was studied."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Institute for Chemical Physics, "As the metal content in the polymer increased, the amount of reduced oxygen initially increased and then reached the limiting value. At a certain metal content, ionization of individual particles with formation of metal counterions changes to the oxidation of particles assembly giving layers of oxide products."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The mechanism changes at the percolation threshold of the electron conductivity of the nanocomposite and determines the maximum amount of absorbed oxygen."
