An electron microscope image of the tiny copper cubes used as a catalyst in the new reactor

Engineers at Rice University have developed a new reactor that can convert carbon monoxide (CO) into acetic acid. Using tiny copper cubes as a catalyst, the device is relatively simple and can operate for long periods at a time, allowing the unwanted waste gas to be turned into an industrially useful product.
