Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent atmospheric pollutant. Although naturally occurring, anthropogenic N2O emissions from intensive agricultural fertilisation, industrial processes, and combustion of fossil fuels and biomass are a major cause for concern. Researchers at the University of Warwick have isolated elusive transition metal compounds of N2O that provide clues into how it could be used in sustainable chemical technologies.
A €4.9m EU H2020 grant will enable a consortium of researchers from across Europe, to embark on a project called ‘Boostcrop’. They will use state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methodologies to design molecular heaters which will enhance crop growth under cold and freezing stress.
Two- to three- fold increase in heatwave occurrence and severity seen directly in UK temperature records
A two to three-fold increase in heatwave activity in the United Kingdom since the late 19th century has been identified in a new analysis of historical daily temperature data led by University of Warwick scientists.
How can we harness the collective will of the people to avert disaster? Experts are to meet with students and members of the public at the University of Warwick to share their insights.
Historic space weather may help us understand what’s coming next, according to new research by the University of Warwick.
