Several bioactive components of the human diet have major effects on composition and function of the gut microbiome, but no systematic framework exists for understanding variation in microbiome-active components amid the vast amount of genotypic and phenotypic variation within a given species of food crop. Capitalizing on a novel automated in vitro microbiome screening (AiMS) methodology to quantify human gut microbiome phenotypes after fermentation of grain from genetically diverse lines, we show how microbiome phenotypes can be used as quantitative traits for genetic analysis.

In order to improve the waterflooding efficiency, surfactants and polymers are added to the water; this process is called surfactant–polymer (SP) flooding. One of the problems for this process is high adsorption of surfactants to the rock surface and specially to carbonate rock surfaces. The focus of this work is: to quantify experimentally the adsorption of anionic surfactants to carbonate rock surfaces, obtain a qualitative understanding of the mechanisms at play and identify suitable adsorption inhibitors.

Conventional materials discovery is a laborious and time-consuming process that can take decades from initial conception of the material to commercialization. Recent developments in materials acceleration platforms promise to accelerate materials discovery using automation of experiments coupled with machine learning.

The methane to olefins, aromatics, and hydrogen (MTOAH) process via Pt/CeO2 catalysts poses an attractive route to improve yield and stability for the direct catalytic conversion of methane. In this study, two sets of samples, one composed of PtOx single sites on ceria and the other with additional Pt agglomerates, were prepared.

Cerium-bismuth oxides have emerged as promising candidates for Diesel soot oxidation. The catalysts are synthesized via automated co-precipitation methods. T50 values, where 50 % of soot is oxidized, and the dynamic oxygen storage capacity (OSCdyn) are used to compare the catalytic activity.

The discovery of new molecules and materials helps expand the horizons of novel and innovative real-life applications. In the pursuit of finding molecules with desired properties, chemists have traditionally relied on experimentation and recently on combinatorial methods to generate new substances often complimented by computational methods. The sheer size of the chemical space makes it infeasible to search through all possible molecules exhaustively. This calls for fast and efficient methods to navigate the chemical space to find substances with desired properties.
