New work from Carnegie's Ivan Naumov and Russell Hemley delves into the chemistry underlying some surprising recent observations about hydrogen, and reveals remarkable parallels between hydrogen and graphene under extreme pressures. Their work is the cover story in the December issue of Accounts ...
In the fight against global warming, carbon capture - chemically trapping carbon dioxide before it releases into the atmosphere - is gaining momentum, but standard methods are plagued by toxicity, corrosiveness and inefficiency. Using a bag of chemistry tricks, Cornell materials scientists have ...
Researchers from North Carolina State University and Qatar University have developed a new "high-entropy" metal alloy that has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than any other existing metal material. High-entropy alloys are materials that consist of five or more metals in approximately equal ...
Rice University lab discovers simple way to make material for energy storage, electronics
Researchers at Rice University have created flexible, patterned sheets of multilayer graphene from a cheap polymer by burning it with a computer-controlled laser. The process works in air at room temperature and eliminates the need for hot furnaces and controlled environments, and it makes ...
Reichhold Industries, Inc. announced that its US subsidiary, Reichhold, Inc. received approval from the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware of certain bidding procedures in connection with the sale of substantially all of its US assets. The approved bidding procedures ...
Glass is mysterious. It is a broad class of materials that extends well beyond the everyday window pane, but one thing that these disparate glasses seem to have in common is that they have nothing in common when it comes to their internal structures, especially in contrast with highly ordered and ...
Finding gives scientists a new group of materials to explore to unlock secrets of some materials' ability to carry current with no energy loss
A team of scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia Engineering, Columbia Physics and Kyoto University has discovered an unusual form of electronic order in a new family of unconventional superconductors. The finding, described in Nature ...
Acquisition expands Vertellus’ product offerings to pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and industrial sectors
Vertellus has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Sodium Borohydride (“SBH”) business, including associated assets, from the Dow Chemical Company. Vertellus is a portfolio company of Chicago-based private equity firm Wind Point Partners. Wind Point acquired Vertellus in partnership ...
University of Oregon microscope puts spotlight on the surface structure of quantum dots for designing new solar devices
A potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers. To increase light-harvesting efficiency of solar cells beyond silicon's limit of about 29 ...
