Dr. Hemley’s potential research breakthrough highlighted in Chemistry World article

September 04, 2017

Dr. Russell Hemley and his recent paper, “Melting and High P-T Transitions of Hydrogen up to 300 GPa,” were highlighted in the September 4 Chemistry World article, “Tentative claims for new metallic hydrogen.” Since 1935 when theorists first predicted hydrogen could take on a metallic form under immense pressure, the quest to find it has been on.  Dr. Hemley has now mapped out what could be several metallic states for hydrogen.
