Ultrafast lasers probe elusive chemistry at the liquid-liquid interface
Real-time measurements provide missing insight into chemical separations to recover cobalt, a critical raw material used to make batteries and magnets for modern technologies. Results track the dynamics of molecules designed to grab cobalt from solutions containing a mixture of similar species.
