Researchers discover new state of water molecule

26-Apr-2016

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states. Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling ...

Pulling water from thin air

26-Feb-2016

Organisms such as cacti and desert beetles can survive in arid environments because they've evolved mechanisms to collect water from thin air. The Namib desert beetle, for example, collects water droplets on the bumps of its shell while V-shaped cactus spines guide droplets to the plant's ...

A new form of frozen water?

Could it be the 18th known form of ice?

16-Feb-2016

Amid the season known for transforming Nebraska into an outdoor ice rink, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln-led research team has predicted a new molecular form of the slippery stuff that even Mother Nature has never borne. The proposed ice would be about 25 percent less dense than a record-low ...

Leaf-mimicking device harnesses light to purify water

08-Jan-2016

For years, scientists have been pursuing ways to imitate a leaf's photosynthetic power to make hydrogen fuel from water and sunlight. In a new twist, a team has come up with another kind of device that mimics two of a leaf's processes -- photosynthesis and transpiration -- to harness solar energy ...

Novel algorithm simulates water evaporation at the nanoscale

20-Oct-2015

We are all familiar with boiling a pot of water - flame from a stove heats the base of a metal pot, the metal transfers the heat to the water, and the temperature goes up and up until the water boils. Professor Shalabh Maroo and graduate student Sumith YD are looking closer - much closer. They ...

Scientists develop mesh that captures oil - but lets water through

Nano-coated mesh could clean oil spills for less than $1 per square foot

20-Apr-2015

The unassuming piece of stainless steel mesh in a lab at The Ohio State University doesn't look like a very big deal, but it could make a big difference for future environmental cleanups. Water passes through the mesh but oil doesn't, thanks to a nearly invisible oil-repelling coating on its ...

Not candy crush: The nature of candy sculpture

09-Feb-2015

A team of scientists has identified the complex process by which materials are shaped and ultimately dissolved by surrounding water currents. The study, conducted by researchers at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Florida State University, appears in the Journal of Fluid ...

Berkeley Lab study reveals molecular structure of water at gold electrodes

28-Oct-2014

When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding of a diverse set of phenomena from biology to materials science. When the solid surface is ...

Professors' super waterproof surfaces cause water to bounce like a ball

30-May-2014

In a basement lab on BYU's campus, mechanical engineering professor Julie Crockett analyzes water as it bounces like a ball and rolls down a ramp. This phenomenon occurs because Crockett and her colleague Dan Maynes have created a sloped channel that is super-hydrophobic. Engineers like Crockett ...

Novel technique enables air-stable water droplet networks

15-May-2014

A simple new technique to form interlocking beads of water in ambient conditions could prove valuable for applications in biological sensing, membrane research and harvesting water from fog. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a method to create ...
