Exotic, gigantic molecules fit inside each other like Russian nesting dolls

26-Jan-2015

University of Chicago scientists have experimentally observed for the first time a phenomenon in ultracold, three-atom molecules predicted by Russian theoretical physicsist Vitaly Efimov in 1970. In this quantum phenomenon, called geometric scaling, the triatomic molecules fit inside one another ...

Scientists 'bend' elastic waves with new metamaterials that could have commercial applications

26-Jan-2015

Sound waves passing through the air, objects that break a body of water and cause ripples, or shockwaves from earthquakes all are considered "elastic" waves. These waves travel at the surface or through a material without causing any permanent changes to the substance's makeup. Now, engineering ...

BASF to increase capacity for butanediol at its Geismar site

Global capacity to increase to 670,000 metric tons of butanediol per year

23-Jan-2015

BASF will increase its production capacities for the chemical intermediate 1,4-butanediol (BDO) by 10% at its site in Geismar/Louisiana as of 2016. The company will then have a global capacity of BDO of 670,000 metric tons per year. Additionally, BASF looks into further measures to strengthen and ...

New laser-patterning technique turns metals into supermaterials

Hierarchical nano- and microstructures transform sheets of platinum, titanium and brass into light absorbing, water repelling, self-cleaning superstars

22-Jan-2015

By zapping ordinary metals with femtosecond laser pulses researchers from the University of Rochester in New York have created extraordinary new surfaces that efficiently absorb light, repel water and clean themselves. The multifunctional materials could find use in durable, low maintenance solar ...
