Research reveals mechanism for direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide

25-Jan-2016

From the polyurethane that makes our car seats to the paper made from bleached wood pulp, chlorine can be found in a variety of large-scale manufacturing processes. But while chlorine is good at activating the strong bonds of molecules, which allows manufacturers to synthesize the products we use ...

From nanocrystals to earthquakes, solid materials share similar failure characteristics

19-Nov-2015

Apparently, size doesn't always matter. An extensive study by an interdisciplinary research group suggests that the deformation properties of nanocrystals are not much different from those of the Earth's crust. "When solid materials such as nanocrystals, bulk metallic glasses, rocks, or granular ...

Catalyst combining reactivity and selectivity could speed drug development

19-Oct-2015

Chemists have long believed that inserting nitrogen into a carbon-hydrogen bond requires a trade-off between catalyst reactivity and selectivity. But a new manganese-based catalyst developed by University of Illinois chemists has given researchers both in one efficient, lower-cost ...

New research may enhance display & LED lighting technology

Large-area integration of quantum dots and photonic crystals produce brighter and more efficient light

11-Aug-2015

Recently, quantum dots (QDs) have moved from the research lab into commercial products. However, QDs are expensive to make so there's a push to improve their performance and efficiency, while lowering their fabrication costs. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have ...

'Nanocamera' takes pictures at distances smaller than light's own wavelength

How is it possible to record optically encoded information for distances smaller than the wavelength of light?

22-Jul-2014

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have demonstrated that an array of novel gold, pillar-bowtie nanoantennas (pBNAs) can be used like traditional photographic film to record light for distances that are much smaller than the wavelength of light (for example, distances ...

University of Illinois study advances limits for ultrafast nano-devices

15-Jul-2014

A recent study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provides new insights on the physical mechanisms governing the interplay of spin and heat at the nanoscale, and addresses the fundamental limits of ultrafast spintronic devices for data storage and information ...

Controlling thermal conductivities can improve energy storage

10-Jun-2014

Controlling the flow of heat through materials is important for many technologies. While materials with high and low thermal conductivities are available, materials with variable and reversible thermal conductivities are rare, and other than high pressure experiments, only small reversible ...
