Carbon's new champion

Rice U. theorists calculate atom-thick carbyne chains may be strongest material ever

18-10-2013

Carbyne will be the strongest of a new class of microscopic materials if and when anyone can make it in bulk. If they do, they'll find carbyne nanorods or nanoropes have a host of remarkable and useful properties, as described in a new paper by Rice University theoretical physicist Boris Yakobson ...

Quartz crystal microbalances enable new microscale analytic technique

30-11-2010

A new chemical analysis technique developed by a research group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses the shifting ultrasonic pitch of a small quartz crystal to test the purity of only a few micrograms of material. Since it works with samples close to a thousand times ...

Sugar and slice make graphene real nice

Rice University lab finds table sugar, metallic sheets produce pristine graphene in one step

17-11-2010

Future computers may run a little sweeter, thanks to a refinement in the manufacture of graphene at Rice University. Rice researchers have learned to make pristine sheets of graphene, the one-atom-thick form of carbon, from plain table sugar and other carbon-based substances. They do so in a ...

Researchers find a stable way to store the sun's heat

Storing thermal energy in chemical could lead to advances in storage and portability

28-10-2010

Researchers at MIT have revealed exactly how a molecule called fulvalene diruthenium, which was discovered in 1996, works to store and release heat on demand. This understanding, reported in a paper published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, should make it possible to find similar chemicals ...

Smaller is better in the viscous zone

25-10-2010

Being the right size and existing in the limbo between a solid and a liquid state appear to be the secrets to improving the efficiency of chemical catalysts that can create better nanoparticles or more efficient energy sources. When matter is in this transitional state, a catalyst can achieve ...
