Fluorocarbon Bonds Are No Match for New Mild-Powered Nanocatalyst

An artist’s illustration of the light-activated antenna-reactor catalyst Rice College engineers designed to interrupt carbon-fluorine bonds in fluorocarbons. The aluminum portion of the particle (white and pink) captures vitality from mild (inexperienced), activating islands of palladium catalysts (pink). Within the inset, fluoromethane molecules (prime) comprised …
