  • Effective and cheap sound-absorbing nanofoam

    The breakthrough material reduces a noise level by 100% more efficient comparing to standard analogs, cutting the level of noise transmission by 20-22 dB. The new foam reacts to sound waves not only of high but also of low frequencies, which can damage human health. A young scientist from the Far Ea more

  • 3-D printing breakthrough for lightweight syntactic foams could help submarines dive deeper

    A team of materials scientists at NYU Tandon School of Engineering have developed the first process to 3D print components of syntactic foam, extremely strong and lightweight composites used in vehicles, airplanes, and ships. Their breakthrough holds particular promise for submarines because it will more

  • A dream of foam

    Oktoberfest in Munich is an exciting cultural event, but it is also a source of inspiration for materials scientists and engineers. Not the beer itself, but rather the beer foam is a source of inspiration. A good head of foam -- generally measuring about 1.5 cm and containing an impressive 1,500,000 more

How to Get Rid of Beer Foam Fast

So say you pour a beer but it’s all foam. Do you wait? Try to drink through it? Grab a straw. Just kidding. There is a better way. Find something oily like a french fry or a slice of pizza. Even your oily nose will work in a pinch. Get a dab of grease on your finger and swirl it through the foam ... more

Scientific Analysis of Liquid Foams

Reproducible, precise and process-related measurements A particular strength of our DFA100 is the exceptional reproducibility of foam height measurements thanks to an accurately controlled foaming process with electronic gas flow or stirrer control. The optical sensor measures the quantity of foam p more

Pop science: Stanford engineers stop soap bubbles from swirling

The spinning rainbow surface of a soap bubble is more than mesmerizing – it’s a lesson in fluid mechanics. Better understanding of these hypnotic flows could bring improvements in many areas, from longer lasting beer foam to life-saving lung treatments. more

The Chemistry of Cocktail Foams

Ever wondered about the chemistry behind cocktails? If so, then this mini-series of graphics is for you! As part of the Pint of Science festival taking place in May, I’m running an event at La Raza in Cambridge (UK) looking at how chemistry can be used to make ‘molecular cocktails’. I’ve also create more

What Makes Shampoo Foam?

The third of the ‘Everyday Compounds’ series of infographics looks at sodium lauryl sulfate – a compound the majority of us encounter in our showers every day. What’s this chemical doing in your shampoo and toothpaste, why is it also found in engine degreasers, and why could it also potentially be u more

The chemistry of the World Cup

The 2018 World Cup kicked off! Here’s some of the chemistry you can look out for over the next month; polymers make up the ball and the shirts, and chemistry also has a part to play in the vanishing spray that referees will be using during the games. more

Rheology Masterclass 2 – The basics of viscoelasticity

Rheology is defined as the science of deformation and flow and in particular refers to materials that show viscoelastic or non-Newtonian behaviour when stressed. Such materials include suspensions, emulsions, polymer solutions and foams to name but a few. Part 2 of this two part webinar series focus
