University of Illinois researchers create 1-step graphene patterning method

29-Apr-2016

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a one-step, facile method to pattern graphene by using stencil mask and oxygen plasma reactive-ion etching, and subsequent polymer-free direct transfer to flexible substrates. Graphene, a two-dimensional carbon ...

Biodiesel from sugarcane more economical than soybean

21-Mar-2016

America's oil consumption far exceeds that of every other country in the world. What's more, it's unsustainable. Therefore, in 2007, Congress mandated a move away from petroleum-based oils toward more renewable sources. Soybeans, an important dietary protein and the current primary source of ...

3-D micro X-ray images help answer questions about fried foods' internal structure

29-Feb-2016

What happens to food and its microstructure when it is fried is a complicated process, both scientifically and mathematically speaking. While consumers want a product that is crispy and tasty, food scientists seek to get a closer glimpse into what exactly is going on inside the food during frying ...

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 ...
