Simple green synthesis is a breath of fresh air

07-Nov-2017

Nanoparticles of controllable composition and size have great potential in electrical, optical and chemical devices, but they must be created in a safe and cost-effective way. Kazuhiro Takanabe and coworkers from KAUST now report a simple method for synthesizing metal-sulfide nanoparticles at low ...

A little tension yields enormous solar crystals

02-Oct-2017

In the race to replace silicon in low-cost solar cells, semiconductors known as metal halide perovskites are favored because they can be solution-processed into thin films with excellent photovoltaic efficiency. A collaboration between KAUST and Oxford University researchers has now uncovered a ...

MOFs provide a better way to remove water from gas

22-May-2017

The conventional view that metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) cannot be stable in water has been overturned by the development of an MOF that can selectively and effectively adsorb water to dry gas streams. "The achievement of energy efficient dehydration by our MOF is revolutionary," said Professor ...

Information storage with a nanoscale twist

30-Mar-2017

Swirling objects known as magnetic vortices and skyrmions can be miniaturized without sacrificing mobility, a KAUST-led international research team has found. These findings are relevant for future "race-track" memory technologies that feature massive densities of moveable magnetic bits. In ...

High-sensitivity cameras reveal the atomic structure of metal-organic frameworks

27-Feb-2017

Researchers at KAUST have developed a method for fine-scale imaging of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), three-dimensional structures made up of metal ions connected by organic ligands. MOFs are useful for gas storage and separation because they can be designed to have precise pore sizes of ...

Enabling direct carbon capture

28-Oct-2016

Carbon dioxide capture is a high-profile area of chemical research offering a direct approach to tackling the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide. This greenhouse gas is largely blamed for global warming and climate change. Professor Mohamed Eddaoudi, associate director of the University's ...
