Researchers from McGill University, (Montreal), The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN; Wako, Japan) and the Institute for Molecular Science (Okazaki, Japan) have discovered a way to make the widely used chemical process of hydrogenation more environmentally friendly, and less expensive, McGill University has announced. The researchers approach is based on iron nanoparticles produced directly inside a polymer matrix, composed of amphiphilic polymers based on polystyrene and polyethylene glycol. The polymer acts as a wrapping film that protects the...
