Biocatalysts are a bridge to greener, more powerful chemistry

15-Nov-2017

New research from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute is building a bridge from nature's chemistry to greener, more efficient synthetic chemistry. Researchers in the lab of Alison Narayan analyzed biocatalysts evolved by nature for their effectiveness in a variety of synthetic ...

Google provides open source library for quantum chemistry

Platform-independent solution to integrate future developments

26-Oct-2017

Since physicists have been dealing with the theoretical description of molecules, the solving of quantum mechanical equations has been a major obstacle. This is supposed to be a thing of the past with the release of an open source based system. Google has introduced such a system to the public ...

The shape of melting in two dimensions

02-Feb-2017

Snow falls in winter and melts in spring, but what drives the phase change in between? Although melting is a familiar phenomenon encountered in everyday life, playing a part in many industrial and commercial processes, much remains to be discovered about this transformation at a fundamental ...

New metamaterial can switch from hard to soft - and back again

25-Jan-2017

When a material is made, you typically cannot change whether that material is hard or soft. But a group of University of Michigan researchers have developed a new way to design a "metamaterial" that allows the material to switch between being hard and soft without damaging or altering the ...

A more accurate sensor for lead paint

12-Sep-2016

A new molecular gel recipe developed at the University of Michigan is at the core of a prototype for a more accurate lead paint test. The test makes it easy to see whether a paint chip contains more than the regulated 5,000 parts per million of the poisonous metal that was banned from pigments in ...

Spray-on coating could ice-proof airplanes, power lines, windshields

15-Mar-2016

On your car windshield, ice is a nuisance. But on an airplane, a wind turbine, an oil rig or power line, it can be downright dangerous. And removing it with the methods that are available today--usually chemical melting agents or labor-intensive scrapers and hammers--is difficult and expensive ...

Carbon capture analyst: 'Coal should stay in the ground'

04-Dec-2015

Serious flaws have been found in a decade's worth of studies about the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize the climate. The findings, from the University of Michigan, are released as world leaders at COP21 attempt to negotiate the globe's first internationally binding ...

A new spin on spintronics

Michigan team tests radiation-resistant spintronic material, possibly enabling electronic devices that will work in harsh environments

19-Feb-2015

A team of researchers from the University of Michigan and Western Michigan University is exploring new materials that could yield higher computational speeds and lower power consumption, even in harsh environments.Most modern electronic circuitry relies on controlling electronic charge within a ...

A new way to make sheets of graphene

28-May-2014

Graphene's promise as a material for new kinds of electronic devices, among other uses, has led researchers around the world to study the material in search of new applications. But one of the biggest limitations to wider use of the strong, lightweight, highly conductive material has been the ...

Pinwheel 'living' crystals and the origin of life

26-Feb-2014

Simply making nanoparticles spin coaxes them to arrange themselves into what University of Michigan researchers call 'living rotating crystals' that could serve as a nanopump. They may also, incidentally, shed light on the origin of life itself. The researchers refer to the crystals as 'living' ...
