An Elastic Puff of Air

Superflexible aerogels are highly efficient absorbents, thermal insulators, and pressure sensors

27-Jul-2018

Airy, Airier, Aerogel. Until now, brittleness has limited the practical application of these delicate solids, which consist almost entirely of air-filled pores. This may now change: Japanese researchers have now introduced extremely elastic aerogels that are easy to process and can be produced at ...

Oxidation of sulfides with perovskite catalyst

Barium ruthenate promises easy handling and high yields

17-Jul-2018

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a ruthenium-based perovskite catalyst that shows strong activity even at low temperatures (down to 313 K). The reusable catalyst does not require additives, meaning that it can prevent the formation of toxic by-products. The oxidation of ...

Why gold-palladium alloys are better than palladium for hydrogen storage

11-Jul-2018

Materials that absorb hydrogen are used for hydrogen storage and purification, thus serving as clean energy carriers. The best-known hydrogen absorber, palladium (Pd), can be improved by alloying with gold (Au). New research led by The University of Tokyo Institute of Industrial Science explains ...
