Coatings

An appealing and promising exterior: coatings provide just that – and more, if they are more than mere disguise. They can improve the physical, electrical or chemical properties of surfaces. Formulators are constantly on the lookout for ways to optimise them, often using innovative analysis techniques, knowing that the outer values can matter as much as the inner values.

  • 3-D printing improves cell adhesion and strength of PDMS polymer

    Combining two different polymer forms can switch manufacturing of silicone parts from molding, casting and spin coating of simple forms to 3-D printing of complex geometries with better mechanical characteristics and better biological adhesion, according to a team of Penn State researchers. "So far, more

  • Coupling experiments to theory to build a better battery

    Lithium-sulfur batteries are promising candidates for replacing common lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles since they are cheaper, weigh less, and can store nearly double the energy for the same mass. However, lithium-sulfur batteries become unstable over time, and their electrodes deteriorat more

  • Paints and varnishes based on potato starch

    If a surface has to be protected against corrosion, in 80 percent of all cases this takes place through coating it with paints or varnishes. When doing so, the proportion of bio-based, environmentally-friendly solutions is extremely small. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer more

The Chemistry of an Electric Guitar

Electric guitars, on the face of it, might not seem to have much to do with chemistry. However, the materials that make them up are carefully chosen for their chemical properties, without which they simply wouldn’t function. In this graphic, we take a look at some of these materials, and their typic more
