Discovery of researchers from the Centre of New Technologies at the University of Warsaw concerning the oxidation states of chemical elements. Oxidation state usually takes the values from –4 up to +8, and even +9 in one case. Scientists from Centre of New Technologies have done advanced quatum-mechanical calculations and on this ground, they propose several simple molecules, where oxidation state is +9, and even could reach the value of +10. Oxidation state is a number […] >>

Superconductivity at record-high temperature. Scientists have for the first time estimated the temperature at which superconductivity can be achieved in silver-fluoride-based superconductors. The obtained value of about 200 K (negative 73 deg. C) is substantially higher than the experimental record held by copper oxides – 135 K (negative 138 deg. C). Prof. Wojciech Grochala and his research team at […] >>
