31. Monitor [SIS C&C Review $]
... sand on Australia's eastern beaches appears to originate from Antarctica. It comes from a sandstone deposit formed 280 Myrs ago when Australia and Antarctica were joined in the super continent Gondwanaland. Chemical solutions New Scientist 20.3.99, p. 6, 5.6.99, pp. 44-48 The mysterious light around deep sea vents is probably caused by a simple chemical reaction when the emerging sulphides ...

A Japanese team claim to ... done it by simply stirring a catalyst into water, but sceptics remember the cold fusion affair. Physics is not the answer to everything New Scientist 21.11.98, pp. 34-37 Chemists are trying to formulate a philosophy of chemistry to match the quantum mechanics and natural selection philosophies of physicists and biologists. They resent the physics 'imperialism' which claims that everything in chemistry ...
32. Darwin's Dangerous Idea: A Critique [Aeon Journal $]
... that inorganic clay sediments could have acted as lifeless templates for the orthogenesis of organic/prebiogenic molecules. [18 What this points up is that many, if not most, chemical functions occur as reactions on a surface substrate which, in effect, makes them two-dimensional phenomena. There are mass or bulk reactions, to be sure, but catalytic (read ... that the real world is more complex. The real world is always more complex, which has the advantage that we shan't run out of work." [17 As a chemist, and as much as anyone, I'm aware that molecular conformation plays a critical role in many aspects of chemistry, particularly organic chemistry, and specifically biochemistry. We know that ... [13 Even so, reducing such heterogeneous functions to their simplest elements doesn't mean making them any less complicated. Take our simple, readily understandable Periodic Table for example. Basic chemistry typically involves less than one hundred elemental units. To be sure, there are some 109 named elements, but many of these have been synthetically prepared or transmuted from other elements ...

Both "flavors" of niobium consist of 19 niobium atoms (Nb19+ ), but the atoms are clustered differently, as illustrated. The different clusters react quite differently chemically.

36. Morphic Fields and Resonances [SIS Internet Digest $]
... complex phenomena can be reduced to less complex ones; for example, in biology, it is the belief that all the phenomena of life can ultimately be understood in terms of chemistry and physics. Holism is the doctrine that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. A cell, for example, divides randomly, this indeterminism occurring at all ... db=default&uid=default&id=43&ww=1&full=1&view_records=1 Rupert suggests that genes are responsible for making proteins and chemicals, etc., but not form. For example, remove a transistor from a TV set, and the sound can stop, but it does not mean that the transistor ... is due to their being microscopic crystals contaminating future crystalisations; but this often happens in new laboratories (where it is suggested that the crystal contamination is carried on the beards of chemists!). Additional, new crystalisations, should be more stable than much older ones, so one would expect their melting points to increase over time. Rupert believes that this ...
37. The Youthful Atmosphere of Venus [Aeon Journal $]
... in fact, according to previously accepted tests, this atmosphere suggests the planet has been in existence far less than four eons. In 1985 Lawrence Colin stated flatly: "The chemical composition of the air [of Venus remains the most controversial aspect of our knowledge of the Venusian atmosphere." (2) As will be shown, the reason for the ... : can sulphuric acid remain stable in the atmosphere of Venus over the time required by the usual models of the planet's history? Peter R. Ballinger, a researcher in organic chemistry, raised this question in 1965, when he wrote: It is likely that sulphuric acid would be gradually decomposed by solar radiation of ultraviolet and shorter wavelength, particularly in the ... Earth's early history. Jeremy Rifkin gives this overview of the principle: To begin with, most scientists agree that life could not have formed in an oxygen atmosphere. If the chemicals of life are subjected to an oxidising atmosphere, they will decompose into carbon dioxide, water, and nitrogen. For this reason it has long been assumed that the first precursors ...

... paper, outlined his equations of wave mechanics based on the concept of matter waves introduced four years earlier by Louis de Broglie. But the earliest application of quantum mechanics to covalent chemical bonding by means of such atomic wave functions by spin-pairing of electrons was presented in 1927 by London and Walter Heitler, ** then at Zürich, showing a dependence on the ... Louis Paul Cailletet and the Swiss Raoul Pierre Pictet. By 1894 the Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes of Leiden demonstrated the first commercial liquid-air plant, and four years later the British chemist Sir James Dewar liquefied hydrogen. But it wasn't until July 10, 1908, that Onnes succeeded in liquefying helium, the most difficult of all the gases to liquefy because of ... typical run-of-the-mill book review, as it is also a commentary on the progress of science. The book itself is a microhistory of an age of exploration into the uncharted realms of chemistry and the quantum physics of superfluidity and superconductivity, something that we may not experience again for decades, and perhaps longer, though in this instance Kostas Gavroglu's focus is on one ...
39. Oberg's Unscientific Method [The Velikovskian $]
... Mutch claimed that there was real similarity between the lunar craters and the ones at the atomic test sites. Diagrams of four craters --three produced by nuclear explosions and one produced by chemical explosion --show this on page 94 of his monograph, Geology of the Moon, which I cited. From pages 92 through 95, Mutch described these craters as follows: The ... material is found on the Moon's surface should be, overwhelmingly, of lunar origin and not from interplanetary space. French explains: The highlands and maria are fundamentally different in their chemistry and origin, and these chemical differences must have existed more than [3 billion years ago when the maria formed. The fact that these chemical differences could still be detected in ... glass spheres do not contain occluded rock fragments [in them. They are usually perfectly transparent and homogeneous. And some (like the Apollo 15 green glass [spheres) are chemically very uniform, with compositions which can only be accounted for if they originated from the Moon's deep interior. So, in these cases at least, a volcanic origin, most ...

... was dissolved some lithium salts. This very simple set-up was claimed to produce heat energy between four and ten times greater than the electrical energy they were putting in. No purely chemical reaction could produce a result of such magnitude so, said the scientists, it must be nuclear fusion. Both scientists are distinguished in their field, that of electro-chemistry. But ...

The usual process is one of submitting an article to Nature magazine which in turn would submit it to qualified referees. If the two chemists' scientific peers found the paper acceptable, Nature would publish it, they would be recognised as having priority in the discovery and-- all being well-- research cash ...
