Hydrogen peroxide only forms in the presence of ozone in water microdroplets. A comprehensive investigation by KAUST researchers sets the record straight on the formation of hydrogen peroxide in micrometre-sized water droplets, or microdroplets, and shows that ozone is the key to this transformation.
09 December, 2019CCRC hosts the first-ever KAUST Research Workshop on Physics of Turbulent Combustion
CCRC hosted the first-ever KAUST Research Workshop on Physics of Turbulent Combustion in the first week of December 2019. Chaired by Prof. Hong G. Im, the workshop brought together worldwide experts in turbulent combustion research to identify the most significant scientific and engineering issues towards predictive modeling of turbulent combustion phenomena towards clean and efficient energy conversion.
12 August, 2018Solar fuels working well under pressure
Highly fuel-efficient new engine designs could significantly reduce the environmental impact of vehicles, especially if the engines run on renewable nonpetroleum-based fuels. Ensuring these unconventional fuels are compatible with next-generation engines was the aim of a new computational study on fuel ignition behavior at KAUST.
