Enzymatic construction of highly strained carbocycles | Science
Bicyclobutnae is a pain and expensive to make, so hasn't been seriously researched for rocket propellant research, but using e.coli to make it via enzyme catalyst now makes it a biofuel (biorocketfuel?). 8C boiling point versus cryogenic methane makes for an interesting trade study.

Programmable CNT based separation filters, possible basis for molecular manufacturing. At least it seems to deal with gas/liquids easily enough in theory for basic molecular synthesis of simple compounds. So could go from stripping CO2 and water from the atmosphere to make simple synthetic fuels like ethanol

Carbon-based Catalyst Developed for Fuel-cell Forklifts - News - Solar Power Plant Business
Ballard Power Systems seems to be the source of these carbon nanoshell catalyst electrodes, but one of the original researchers is Junichi Ozaki, of Gunma University, who was pursuing nano-shell multilayer carbon hollow shell spheres.

Heteroatom-doped highly porous carbon from human urine : Scientific Reports : Nature Publishing Group
So, um ,wizzing on a slice of coal and slow baking it might make a better fuel cell catalyst than platinum? I wonder if they controlled for diet, since typical korean fare may result in a very different volatile ratio from western food, plus what types of booze. Reminds me of that red wine superconductor research.

Nickel nanoparticles catalyse reversible hydration of carbon dioxide for mineralization carbon capture and storage - Catalysis Science & Technology (RSC Publishing)
Interesting research related to carbon capture. Scientists set out to better understand carbonic acid creation, and needed a catalyst for speeding up experiments. Chance discovery of high surface area nickel on Sea Urchin exoskeletons led to the discovery that nickel nanoparticles catalyze the formation of calcium carbonate from dissolved CO2 and calcium in water, mimicking a carbonic anhydrase enzyme but without the pH limitations . It appears the process leads to direct calcium carbonate, without much carbonic acid byproducts. It may be possible to do this via a seawater column bubbling flue gas with suspended nickel nanoparticles, since the nickel particles can be separated magnetically (though wouldn't that require grinding the recovered carbonate?)

A Perovskite Oxide Optimized for Oxygen Evolution Catalysis from Molecular Orbital Principles
So getting oxygen out of water by electrolysis has traditionally been the limiting factor in performance. This new catalyst is apparently an order of magnitude better than the previous catalyst, but suffers from the same limitation, namely requiring an alkaline solution media to perform at its best. So perhaps not quite ready for primetime. However, apparently there are some integration possibilities with Dr. Nocera's artificial leaf project, which uses similar behavior catalysts.

New green technology for hydrogen production
Claims lower temperature hydrogen gas production via sorption bed enhanced methane reformer, which sucks in CO2 while reforming so the output gas stream is high purity hydrogen. I wonder how you get the CO2 back out of the sorbent to recycle it though...
