Purdue Discovery Could Lead to Safer, Cheaper Production of Amine-Boranes
from Purdue University via Phys.org
Purdue University researchers have developed a way to produce amine-boranes that promises to be safer and cheaper and could lead to new uses in medicine, energy storage, rocket propulsion and other technologies. P.V. Ramachandran, professor of organic chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, and graduate assistant Ameya S. Kulkarni have discovered a way to produce amine-boranes in an open-air environment using cheaper and more plentiful chemicals that have not been used before. The result could provide a safer, cheaper and more plentiful compound, including those not made before, that has a multitude of uses.
