Major opportunities for energy savings were identified as: improvement in scheduling and decreasing delays while liquid metal is in the furnace; addition of chemical energy
for melting steel; and improvement in ladle practice.
Now, researchers can take an in-depth look at how this molecular motor frans- forms chemical energy
into motion, says Ivan Rayment, a crystallographer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Biophysicists seeking to understand how plants convert solar energy into useful chemical energy
have discovered that fullerenes can mimic nature by ferrying electrons across membranes.
He and his colleagues discovered that chemical energy
and light also have that effect on the peptide.
It's just a preliminary experiment," Gur says, "but it demonstrates that one can, without pretreatment, convert the chemical energy
of coal [directly] into electrical energy.
falciparum produces enzymes tht expedite this bonding process, which would otherwise require enormous amounts of chemical energy
