Heat-conducting polymer cools hot electronic devices at 200 degrees C

01-Apr-2014

Polymer materials are usually thermal insulators. But by harnessing an electropolymerization process to produce aligned arrays of polymer nanofibers, researchers have developed a thermal interface material able to conduct heat 20 times better than the original polymer. The modified material can ...

Solar-induced hybrid fuel cell produces electricity directly from biomass

20-Feb-2014

Although low temperature fuel cells powered by methanol or hydrogen have been well studied, existing low temperature fuel cell technologies cannot directly use biomass as a fuel because of the lack of an effective catalyst system for polymeric materials. Now, researchers at the Georgia Institute ...

Tiny bottles and melting corks

Temperature regulates a new delivery system for drugs and fragrances

23-Sep-2013

Microscopic, bottle-like structures with corks that melt at precisely-controlled temperatures could potentially release drugs inside the body or fragrances onto the skin, according to a recently published study. Typical drug delivery systems act more like sponges than bottles. For example, drugs ...
