Even low concentrations of silver can foil wastewater treatment


Research at Oregon State University has shed new light how an increasingly common consumer product component - silver nanoparticles - can potentially interfere with the treatment of wastewater. The findings suggest conventional toxicity testing methods for silver concentrations at treatment ...


Alloying materials of different structures offers new tool for controlling properties


New research into the largely unstudied area of heterostructural alloys could lead to greater materials control and in turn better semiconductors, advances in nanotechnology for pharmaceuticals and improved metallic glasses for industrial applications. Heterostructural alloys are blends of ...

New approach improves ability to predict metals' reactions with water


The wide reach of corrosion, a multitrillion-dollar global problem, may someday be narrowed considerably thanks to a new, better approach to predict how metals react with water. Researchers at Oregon State University and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new computational ...


New hydronium-ion battery presents opportunity for more sustainable energy storage


A new type of battery developed by scientists at Oregon State University shows promise for sustainable, high-power energy storage. It's the world's first battery to use only hydronium ions as the charge carrier. The new battery provides an additional option for researchers, particularly in the ...


Technique could lead to safer, more efficient uranium extraction


The separation of uranium, a key part of the nuclear fuel cycle, could potentially be done more safely and efficiently through a new technique developed by chemistry researchers at Oregon State University. The technique uses soap-like chemicals known as surfactants to extract uranium from an ...

Tooth fillings of the future may incorporate bioactive glass


A few years from now millions of people around the world might be walking around with an unusual kind of glass in their mouth, and using it every time they eat. Engineers at Oregon State University have made some promising findings about the ability of "bioactive" glass to help reduce the ability ...


Photonic 'sintering' may create new solar, electronics manufacturing technologies


Engineers at Oregon State University have made a fundamental breakthrough in understanding the physics of photonic "sintering," which could lead to many new advances in solar cells, flexible electronics, various types of sensors and other high-tech products printed onto something as simple as a ...
