hybrid carbon


Step into the light: Part 9 Jaguar C-X75 Concept, 2010. The X350 series XJ of 2003 was the first series production aluminium Jaguar followed by the second generation XK of 2006. The C-X75 was an aluminium and carbon fibre hybrid electric hypercar. In 2011 Jaguar announced plans for a limited production version of the concept made in collaboration with the Williams F1 team but in December 2012 they cancelled the project

i actually wrote college AU fluff that’s gen, for once. i would like to thank everyone in the Pidgance Positivity Discord for enabling my chemist Hunk headcanons

and I would like to apologize to Hunk for having to deal with Lance in lab

Hunk regretted telling Lance his lab section number approximately three minutes into the first experiment.

Lamborghini Announced RWD Huracán Spyder

Automobili Lamborghini presents the Lamborghini Huracán rear-wheel drive Spyder, combining the lifestyle appeal of the convertible with the pure on-road experience of the Huracán’s rear-wheel drive technologies.

The rear-wheel drive Huracán Spyder features a newly designed front and rear with a dynamic but more aggressive look distinguishing it from the four-wheel drive version. Its naturally aspirated V10 5.2 l engine sends 426 kW / 580 hp to the rear axle, with its dry weight of just 1,509 kg providing a weight-to-power ratio of 2.6 kg/hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62mph) is achieved in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 319 km/h (198mph).

The rear-wheel drive Spyder will be available in markets worldwide from January 2017, priced between the two and four-wheel drive coupe models and completing the core Huracán product range.

27/09/16 Day 5 of productivity
So today the only thing that i did was studying for my chemestry exam, that is on thursday. Its pretty easy organic chemestry but i have troubles with carbon hybridization.
Later in the afternoon I started watching skins, is so f* good but now I’m kinda sad bc of Chris 😔
It’s 9 pm and I’m heading to sleep bc I’m so tired man, not only physically but also psychological. Every day with the same people, the same teachers, the same conversations. Aghh, what can I do?? Help pls if you have any advice.
Thanks and see yah ✌

5 things you didn’t know about…metal organic frameworks

1. First developed in the 1990s, MOFs are crystalline hybrid materials created from both organic and inorganic molecules via molecular self-assembly.

2. They are formed from linkers – long chains, typically of carbon and hydrogen oxides decorated with nitrogen atoms – and positively charged metal ions, which form nodes that bind the arms of the linkers together.

3. One pea-sized gram of MOF material can host the equivalent surface area of 40 tennis courts, and because most of their bulk is empty space, MOFs are also extremely light.

4. USA, chemist Professor Omar Yaghi has pioneered research into MOFs. He authored the first published report of a MOF in 1999 and estimates that his lab alone has created in excess of 1,000 different MOF structures since.

5. One of the most promising features of MOFs is that they are applicable to carbon capture and storage (CCS). In a study by Pike Research (now part of Navigant), USA, they are expected to reach a potential market value of US$221bln by 2030.
