A workhorse catalyst of vehicle exhaust systems—an “oxygen sponge” that can soak up oxygen from air and store it for later use in oxidation reactions—may also be a “hydrogen sponge.”
Neutrons are produced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to look inside materials. With neutrons one can e.g. look inside a car engine, investigate drug delivery, see how plants uptake water, get insights into the development of superconductors.

75 scientists, engineers and technicians from 10 countries and representatives from 10 sponsoring companies attended the International Workshop for Sample Environment at Scattering Facilities 2016.
The hour of birth of the German neutron research:
The Atomic Egg, the first German research reactor, started operating 60 years ago in Garching. Thereby, irreplaceable insights into matter were made possible.
Findings on Perylene structure open new routes for the design of organic electronics.
Evidence has been found that contradicts the basic theory of the exact role of zinc within boromolybdate glasses.
