  • CNT membranes used to make carbon-zero fuels for less than fossil fuels

    Mattershift, an NYC-based startup with alumni from MIT and Yale has achieved a breakthrough in making carbon nanotube (CNT) membranes at large scale. The startup is developing the technology's ability to combine and separate individual molecules to make gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from CO2 remove more

  • Nanomaterials: What are the environmental and health risks?

    From nanoscale silver to titanium dioxide for air purification, the use of nanomaterials of high commercial relevance proves to have clear benefits as it attracts investments, and raises concerns. 'Nano' sized materials (a nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre) could pose environmental and heal more

  • Toilet paper sensors

    University of Washington engineers have turned tissue paper – similar to toilet tissue – into a new kind of wearable sensor that can detect a pulse, a blink of an eye and other human movement. The sensor is light, flexible and inexpensive, with potential applications in health care, entertainment an more

You may not have been aware, but this week is Graphene Week 2015, which marks a yearly week-long conference at the University of Manchester based around the emerging science and technological applications of graphene. This seemed as good a time as any to take a look at graphene: what it is, why some more

Nanotechnology Day & Everyday Uses of Nanotechnology

October 9 is National Nanotechnology Day in the US, as it’s 10/9 in the American date format (and one nanometre is 10–9 metres). This month’s edition of Periodic Graphics in C&EN takes a look at a selection of the nanotechnology that’s already made its way into our everyday lives. more

2nd From Carbon-Rich Molecules to Carbon-Based Materials Conference

This interdisciplinary conference will provide unique “fusion” opportunities for chemists, physicists and engineers having various backgrounds but sharing passion and interests in carbon-only or carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials. It will allow a diverse group of scientists from all ov


Rheology of Lyotropic Nanomaterial Liquid Crystals

Processing of lyotropic nanomaterial dispersions is increasingly recognized as a scalable route for producing large ordered assemblies of anisotropic nanomaterials. Achieving controlled alignment in solid materials produced from dispersions requires understanding the dispersions’ rheological propert
