green finance concept emerged late last year during ADB meetings with key government officials, various G20 green finance task force members including from the PRC and the United Nations Environment Programme, and experts from the private sector.
This paper critically reviews a variety of research endeavors that have focused on catalyzing
oxygen delignification and activating peroxide delignification of chemical pulps.
In the study, the team observed four-atom clusters of iridium metal catalyzing
reactions such as the conversion of mixed propylene and hydrogen into propane gas.
The 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, announced as SCIENCE NEWS was going to press, recognizes the development of molecules for catalyzing
fundamental reactions used to make countless pharmaceuticals.
"Showing that RNAs could accomplish this step, too, catalyzing
the synthesis of proteins, is an important confirmation" of the RNA-world idea, says Michael J.
Boudjouk speculates that it may prove useful for catalyzing
the formation of polymers.
He says it appears that the electrons released during respiration energize the pigment, catalyzing
its sodium pumping activity.
