The June 2022 issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK).

The June 2022 issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK).

The June issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month focuses on Scandinavia — DenmarkNorway and Sweden — where nature throws out the rulebook. Shaped by the elements and ruled by the seasons, this is a region not only bound by cultural ties, but by a love for epic outdoor adventures. From oyster safaris on Denmark’s dramatic shoreline and wilderness camping in Norwegian national parks to learning about Sámi culture in Swedish Lapland, these are the ultimate Scandinavian experiences.

Nature Magazine, May 19, 2022 – At industrial scales, chemical reactions are typically driven by applying continuous heat to the reactants. In this week’s issue, Liangbing Hu and his colleagues show that pulsed heating and quenching can enhance synthetic performance while also saving energy.

Volume 605 Issue 7910

The researchers use a programmable electric current to switch between high and low temperatures very quickly — typically 0.02 seconds on, 1.08 seconds off. Rapidly quenching the reaction gives high selectivity, maintains catalyst stability and reduces energy usage. The cover image illustrates the heater in action for the pyrolysis of methane — the model reaction the team tested. Methane molecules travel through the pores of the high-temperature heater and are selectively converted into useful products.
