How to make a salt atom from sodium
By Emanuele Gionnetto / EPAA group of researchers in Israel have made a salt molecule that consists of a single electron that can withdraw from an atom of sodium.
The research is published in the journal Science.
The researchers say the new mechanism enables a single atom of salt to be made from sodium atoms in the presence of a lithium ion and a lithium-like electron, the ion’s electron.
This mechanism allows for a large number of salts to be produced from a single salt molecule, and it has the potential to make salt an attractive material for use in batteries and other materials.
According to the researchers, the process was able to achieve a critical point of ionization.
The new mechanism makes it possible to make the sodium atom in the salt molecule the salt atom.
The researchers are now working to improve the efficiency of this mechanism.
