Mechanochemistry: The Science of Crush

Crushing, an ancient technique for transforming materials, remains central to our lives today.

The ancient practice of crushing materials remains prevalent today. The technique can help us better understand matter: what it is, how it changes, and what we can do with it.

Investigating the science of crush may lead to greener chemistry, requiring less energy use and fewer toxic chemicals in the future.
