Here’s the weekly summary of both new chemistry research and studies that have been in the news. This week features how spruce cones could be an unlikely source for a carbon capture material, a frost-preventing coating inspired by a desert beetle, and more. As always, links to further articles and original research papers are provided below, as well as further studies of interest not included in the graphic.
Note: links to studies behind a journal paywall are indicated with (£). Studies without this symbol are open access, and can be accessed and read for free.
