While many scientists are hard at work on "green chemistry" projects that will benefit the environment, there are a handful of researchers at the University of Arizona who are starting a trend of their own — "yellow chemistry." That's because their main ingredient is sulfur, a yellow waste product from petroleum refining and natural gas production.
