Soaking up carbon dioxide and turning it into valuable products

Berkeley Lab researchers double down on a good thing by incorporating catalysts into crystalline sponges

31-Aug-2015

A molecular system for the capture and storage of carbon dioxide has been modified so that it now also holds great promise as a catalyst for converting captured carbon dioxide into valuable chemical products. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ...

These microscopic fish are 3-D-printed to do more than swim

27-Aug-2015

Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego used a 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically controlled. These proof-of-concept ...

Electrospray solves longstanding problem in Langmuir-Blodgett assembly

25-Aug-2015

In the 1930s, Irving Langmuir and Katharine Blodgett discovered that by spreading molecules with volatile organic solvents on the surface of water, they could create a one-molecule-thick film and use it as an anti-reflective coating for glass. Later named Langmuir-Blodgett assembly, this ...

Laser-burned graphene gains metallic powers

24-Aug-2015

Rice University chemists who developed a unique form of graphene have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles that turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications. Laser-induced graphene, created by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour last year, is a flexible ...

Shallow fracking raises questions for water, new Stanford research shows

23-Jul-2015

The United States now produces about as much crude oil as Saudi Arabia does, and enough natural gas to export in large quantities. That's thanks to hydraulic fracturing, a mining practice that involves a rock-cracking pressurized mix of water, sand and chemicals.Ongoing research by Stanford ...

Ethanol refining may release more of some pollutants than previously thought

07-May-2015

Ethanol fuel refineries could be releasing much larger amounts of some ozone-forming compounds into the atmosphere than current assessments suggest, according to a new study that found emissions of these chemicals at a major ethanol fuel refinery are many times higher than government ...

Industrial pump inspired by flapping bird wings

New ratcheting pump uses vibrations instead of traditional rotor to transport fluids

05-Feb-2015

Birds are unwitting masters of fluid dynamics - they manipulate airflow each time they flap their wings, pushing air in one direction and moving themselves in another. Two New York University researchers have taken inspiration from avian locomotion strategies and created a pump that moves fluid ...
