New innovation in Electrolyte can make Fuel Cell more efficient




Fuel cell technology is growing fast for last two decades. It is one of the efficient ways of converting chemical energy from compounds mainly rich in hydrogen to electrical energy. Due to fluctuating oil price and environmental concerns the development and application of Fuel cell have been commercialized. As we know that conventional fossil fuel and another primary source of gasoline, is not going to last more than a hundred and event they are causing pollution to the environment. This has led the researcher to think for the development of fuel cell technology for the generation of efficient and pollution-free energy.

Fuel cell combines oxygen and hydrogen to produce energy and does not burn fuel which makes it quite pollution free and even highly efficient than other combustion technology. There are many kinds of fuel cell has been developed depending upon the electrolyte utilized in them such as Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFC), Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells (PAFC), Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC), and low and high temperature Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells.

Improvements in the electrolyte are highly essential to make energy storage device more efficient and fast chargeable, safer and thinner. A variety of SPEs already exists such as Nafion used mostly in proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. It is just as the sheet of flexible polymer or plastic which is permeable to proton and impermeable to the electron. Nafion is highly utilized in the aerospace application as it has many advantages such it is very light as compared to others and most of the portable batteries come from shielding designed that protects the liquid electrolyte leakage. Nafion addresses those problems but it has some disadvantages such as the structure of Nafion is very random and disordered which make it complex and it can never be fully controlled.

There has been discovered a new structure by some special chemical synthesis route that has placed acid groups along a polymer chain in such a way that spacing between functional groups is accurate enough to crystallize. The straight polymer chain contains sulfonic acid group coordinate precisely after each twenty-first carbon atom that produces strong chain to frame the hydrated layers, while the methylene parts crystallize. It is faster than Nafion and it is an innovative and versatile design which works efficiently and opens the door for selective transport of other ions and small molecules.

Researchers, Academicians, and Industry personalities from different part of the world are gathering in the Annual Conference on Green Catalysis and Sustainable Energy scheduled during November 15-16, 2018 in Dubai, UAE with different new ideas and innovations from the field of sustainable technology, Fuel Cell, Bioenergy, Green chemistry and many more.

Growing technology for the production of biofuels



Biomass has got a very rapid attention as a key role for sustainable development that has the capability to replace fossil fuels for the production of energy. The overall reasons behind the production of biofuel from biomass are the reduction of considerable oxygen content from the parent feedstock that improves the energy density and to increase the molecular mass of the of the hydrocarbon product by increasing the C–C bonds in between the biomass-derived intermediates.

Bioethanol and biodiesel the first generation of biofuels in which Biodiesel production is undergoing a rapid technological research in industries and academia. Biodiesel has got more attention due to the increasing price of petroleum and environmental consequences of the fuel overdependency. The utilization of starchy and triglyceride feedstocks from traditional food crops contains more amount of lignocellulosic biomass in producing second generation biofuels by thermochemical processes such as gasification, pyrolysis, liquefaction which directly processes the whole lignocellulose and produces synthesis gas and bio-oil.

Catalytic transesterification, one of the most important strategies that are giving huge strength in production of Biofuels through biomass by from aqueous solutions of carbohydrates, which are isolated through biomass pretreatment and hydrolysis. Hydrolysis process based is assumed to be costly due to pretreatment and hydrolysis but at the same time biomass-derived compounds can be can be processed selectively to yield hydrocarbons with targeted molecular weights and structures.


There are two types of processes batch and continuous processes for the production of biofuels although the batch process is favored for the production of biofuels in industries. But in the future continuous process is going to give higher production rate and lower operating costs and this process will ensure a long-term supply of biofuels.


For any further interest join us on Annual Conference on Green Catalysis and Sustainable Energy (Green Catalysis 2018) during November 15-16, 2018 in Dubai, UAE, in which these types of important topics are going to be an important part of the discussion.

Bioenergy and its effect on our ecosystem




Cellulosic Biomass crop is assumed to play an important role in the generation of future energy. It will play an important role in stabilizing the greenhouse gas concentration. At the same time, there is an uncertainty about the agriculture improvement and viability of land for biomass plantation. A large number of greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and other human activities. A large-scale modification of global energy system is needed to protect our ecosystem. Over past few years, bioenergy has got global interest due to its potential to supply energy at a low level of greenhouse gas emission and at the same time to meet the rural development goals. Presently Sugar rich crops (for bioethanol), or oilseeds (for biodiesel) are used for the manufacturing of Biofuels. But Latest research has shown that these biomass energy sources have some drawbacks which led to the use of lignocellulosic crops such as perennial grasses and short rotation woody crops for bioenergy production. 

The combustion of biomass is traditionally assumed to be climate neutral if the released amount of carbon dioxide is more or less equal to the amount of CO2 released. The understanding is generally assumed in Life Cycle Assessment (LAC) research of bioenergy system some time misjudge the influence of CO2 emission by biomass on the climate condition.  At the same time, CO2 emission from the permanent C losses, CO2 emission from C from temporary C losses also affects the climate change. This CO2 before being consumed by the Plants and other biomasses it contributes to global warming.

 A special interest of outlining the attempts for low Greenhouse gas concentration is the options within the energy sector to remove CO2 from the atmosphere. These can only be possible when human-induced uptake of CO2 would be larger than the amount of human-induced Greenhouse gas emissions. Combination of bioenergy and carbon capture and storage are one of the few technologies that may result in negative emissions of CO2.


For any further interest join us on Annual Conference on Green Catalysis and Sustainable Energy (Green Catalysis 2018) during November 15-16, 2018 in Dubai, UAE, in which these types of important topics are going to be an important part of the discussion.

Bioorthogonal chemistry: design of new Heterogeneous Catalyst for living cell

Bioorthogonal Chemistry


Bioorthogonal chemistry has come in too much attention as it is playing a very important role in analyzing complex intracellular processes and perform specific chemical reactions in the living organism.  Bioorthogonal chemistry is a very new branch of chemical biology and it is making remarkable advancement in imaging, regulation, and therapeutic applications. There is much different kind of bioorthogonal reactions that have been disgusting, realized in living systems. Transition metal catalysts are important for catalyzing different bioorthogonal reactions. Transition metal catalysts can rapidly catalyze chemical transformations that cannot as compared to natural enzymes which are utilized for specific biological reactions. But when accuracy comes into picture Transition metal catalysts are far less than natural enzymes for utilization of specific biological reactions. The reactions in the living organism are very preciously controlled as per the requirement. Therefore in practical application, it is highly desirable to preciously control the extent of Bioorthogonal reaction on the basis of its requirement. But unfortunately, most of the past reported bioorthogonal catalysts are not providing the capability of precisely controlling the catalytic processes according to extrinsic stimulus. Recently, cucurbit 7 uril are utilized to block access to the catalytic site of Ru or Pd catalysts on Au nanoparticle surface so that the catalysis can be reactivated by adding 1-adamantylamine. It was an innovative design of TMC-mediated bioorthogonal chemistry. But at the same time this extra addition might cause potential interference in cellular processes and at the same time, it is difficult to realize reversible control and temporal-spatial resolution.



Light is an ideal external energy for controlling chemical reactions. It is highly utilized and also harmless when applied properly. There are many biological processes or reactions where light is successfully applied. The organometallic pentamethylcyclopentadienyl could catalyze the conversion of N-allyl carbamates into their amines in the presence of thiols, water, and air under UV light. But this homogenous catalyst pentamethylcyclopentadienyl was difficult in synthesis, disaffiliation, and purification and at the same time, the application of these homogeneous organometallic catalysts in the living organism is highly difficult due to the issues of its biocompatibility, water solubility, stability, and rapid efflux of catalysts from living cells.

There are many TMCs are being used to catalyze multiple bioorthogonal reactions but light-controlled heterogeneous TMCs is a new innovation in Bioorthogonal chemistry. Pd nanoparticles- implanted macroporous silica nanoparticles can be abbreviated as SP and then it is been reconstructed with nanocatalyst switch to azobenzene, abbreviated as ASP. The following catalyst can be reversibly functionalized by cyclodextrin (CD) through host-guest interactions called as CASP. When the path to the catalytic site of CASP is stopped by CD, the catalytic action will be inhibited. By using the isomerization of Azo, the CD blocker can be delivered from the catalysts which result in the recovery of catalytic action under UV light. The bond Energy between the isomerization of Azo is very less than the bond energy of PPG’s and hence very low amount of extra light is needed for the process. The major benefit of this process is the artificial method of heterogeneous TMCs is versatile and easy to be applied for creating different kinds of catalysts, such as Pt, Ru, so on, The reversible interaction between Azo and CD gives the bioorthogonal catalyst with good reversibility, producing a great promise for broadening possible application of bioorthogonal catalysts in biosystem and require very Low amount of light as the external stimulus is an accepted green regulation method and maintains excellent controllability in space and time.

So here we come to know how bioorthogonal Chemistry comes to play in a living organism and how it is important for us. For this valuable reason, ME Conferences is organizing Annual Conference on Green Catalysis and Sustainable Energy (Green Catalysis 2018) during November 15-16, 2018 in Dubai, UAE, in which these types of important topics such as Green Chemistry, Biocatalysis, Bioorthogonal Chemistry, Organometallic catalysis and many more are going to be an important part of the discussion.

Discovery of new enzymes from algae could empower the large-scale fuel-grade oil degradation

Common green colonial microalgae called Botryococcus braunii has an enzyme which is responsible for producing hydrocarbons which can be used to make fuels like gasoline, diesel and kerosene fuel.


Microalgae Botryococcus braunii 

Botryococcus is cosmopolitan in nature, found mostly in freshwater or brackish water and can grow in mountainous to desert regions.

Scientists are working on these algae, to study which genes are responsible in the production of hydrocarbons, what are the pathways involved so that it can be manipulated in the economic scale as the growth of the algae is comparatively slow when compared to the non-hydrocarbon producing group. Through genetic engineering process, the genetic material in other algal groups can be modified and used in the mass production of hydrocarbons.



A biochemical pathway was discovered called lycopadiene which is the key pathway in oil production. A gene involved is known as lycopaoctene synthase or LOS which encodes the gene and initiate the production of oil. Botryococcus do not store extracellularly their hydrocarbons and lipids like other algal group but within the cell membrane systems and as oil droplets within the cytoplasm or chloroplasts. Microorganisms such as B. braunii can, in the long run, can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources because of this B. braunii continues to attract much attention.

ME Conferences is organizing Annual Conference on Green Catalysis and Sustainable Energy (Green Catalysis 2018) held November 15-16, 2018 at Dubai, UAE which aims to provide knowledge and information on latest research and development in the field of Green catalysis and Sustainable development.

Wasp venom contains mind controlling molecules which can cure Parkinson’s disease







After getting stung, the American cockroach by a parasitic wasp loses the control of its behavior in return; becoming a host for the wasp’s eggs and after few days, the hatchling consumes the cockroach alive. This is a gruesome act for the cockroach, but scientists discovered a new peptide family which holds the key to the arthropod’s minds which might help in developing a cure for the Parkinson’s treatment.

 After a long study on the wasp, the scientists discovered some novel molecules to treat disease the wasp with an initial sting at thorax paralyze the front legs and the subsequent sting causes it to fall into a state of stupor allowing to do whatever it wants. This immobile state resembles the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, both may be related to the dysfunction of dopamine pathway.
After the wasps were milked by the researcher and then examined the components in the venom by chromatography and spectrometry techniques and extracted an alpha-helical peptide and named it ampulexins.

These molecules in near future may find a cure where modern chemistry couldn’t. The application of biological chemistry minimizes the effect and totally organic.
