I just want to say
To the headline submitter
I hate you so much right now.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
My finger poked through the toilet paper
and now it's covered in poo

We need MaxxLarge in the thread Stat for a.proper and excellent limerick

Professor Zaworotko, the Chair
of Chemistry at Limerick, shared
a brand new material,
porous and arterial,
that absorbs myriad toxins from air.

There, Subby, was that so hard?

that breaking up is no longer hard to do

Neil Sedaka reportedly conflicted.

Earlier work from Professor Zaworotko's lab resulted in leading materials for carbon capture and water harvesting. The water harvesting material has such favorable properties for capturing and releasing water from the atmosphere that is already being used in dehumidification systems.

Just as long as there's a plentiful supply of power converters at Tosche Station.

/two or three more smartass remarks and I may be ready to discuss the actual topic of TFA

Professor Michael Zaworotko, Bernal Chair of Crystal Engineering and Science Foundation of Ireland Research Professor at University of Limerick's Bernal Institute has an impressive title.

No we do not

Subby, if that headline was meant to trigger people who get OCD over the meter of a limerick, congratulations.

Article has nothing about the chemistry or process.

Titanium dioxide white, under UV, will decompose VOCs.

Summit White, the white of most GMC trucks, is just titanium oxide with a binder.

I presume the other whites are also mainly TiO2, so a white paint job makes up for what the catalytic converters don't catch.

A professor at a school quite far
Had a situation that was quite bizarre
His academic credential
Was so consequential
It overflowed his business car

wildcardjack: Article has nothing about the chemistry or process.


They handwave about physical processes rather than chemical ones, and heating it to regenerate it by releasing the benzene, so I assume it's some sort of adsorption.  Pi-stacking maybe?

FTA: The sponge-like porous material could revolutionize the search for clean air and have a significant impact in the battle against climate change, the researchers believe.

Sponge worthy?

"Outstanding. What is it made out of?"

"... Asbestos, Plutonium, and an orphan's heart."

Put this one in the running for HLOTY. Well played, subby!

That is not how limericks work!
