New method enlists electricity for easier, cheaper, greener chemistry

22-Apr-2016

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found a new and better way to achieve a chemical reaction that is used widely in the pharmaceutical as well as flavor and fragrance industries. Traditional methods of "allylic oxidation" typically employ toxic and/or expensive reagents such ...

All powered up

22-Apr-2016

University of California, Irvine researchers have invented nanowire-based battery material that can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, moving us closer to a battery that would never require replacement. The breakthrough work could lead to commercial batteries with greatly lengthened ...

With simple process, engineers fabricate fastest flexible silicon transistor

22-Apr-2016

One secret to creating the world's fastest silicon-based flexible transistors: a very, very tiny knife. Working in collaboration with colleagues around the country, University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have pioneered a unique method that could allow manufacturers to easily and cheaply ...

Making electronics out of coal

21-Apr-2016

Jeffrey Grossman thinks we've been looking at coal all wrong. Instead of just setting it afire, thus ignoring the molecular complexity of this highly varied material, he says, we should be harnessing the real value of that diversity and complex chemistry. Coal could become the basis for solar ...

Chemistry consortium uses Titan supercomputer to understand actinides

21-Apr-2016

Radioactive materials have long been a part of American history--from the Manhattan Project to the development of nuclear power. The materials central to these innovations are actinides, or elements 89-103 on the periodic table that release large amounts of energy when atoms are split. That same ...

3-D printing for building densely populated electronic assemblies investigated

21-Apr-2016

As detector assemblies get smaller and denser -- packed with electronic components that all must be electrically connected to sense and read out signals -- it's becoming increasingly more challenging to design and manufacture these all-important instrument devices. A team of NASA technologists at ...

A new way to get electricity from magnetism

'Inverse spin Hall effect' works in several organic semiconductors

20-Apr-2016

By showing that a phenomenon dubbed the "inverse spin Hall effect" works in several organic semiconductors - including carbon-60 buckyballs - University of Utah physicists changed magnetic "spin current" into electric current. The efficiency of this new power conversion method isn't yet known, ...

New nanodevice shifts light's color at single-photon level

20-Apr-2016

Converting a single photon from one color, or frequency, to another is an essential tool in quantum communication, which harnesses the subtle correlations between the subatomic properties of photons (particles of light) to securely store and transmit information. Scientists at the National ...

WACKER Officially Opens New Production Site in the USA

20-Apr-2016

Wacker Chemie AG officially opened its new polysilicon production site in the US State of Tennessee. The new site is WACKER’s largest single investment ever, totaling some US$ 2.5 billion. WACKER began starting up individual plant sections at Charleston in December after a construction period of ...

New twists (and bends) in LCD research

20-Apr-2016

Liquid crystals, discovered more than 125 years ago, are at work behind the screens of TV and computer monitors, clocks, watches and most other electronics displays, and scientists are still discovering new twists--and bends--in their molecular makeup. Liquid crystals are an exotic state of ...
