Mechanism of oxidative unzipping of multiwall carbon nanotubes to graphene nanoribbons

13-Apr-2018

Graphene, a two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms, has attracted enormous interest from a broad base of the research community for more than one decade. Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), narrow strips of graphene, being quasi one-dimensional, possess complementary features relative to their ...

What plants can teach us about oil spill clean-up, microfluidics

22-Mar-2018

For years, scientists have been inspired by nature to innovate solutions to tricky problems, even oil spills -- manmade disasters with devastating environmental and economic consequences. A new USC study takes a cue from leaf structure to fabricate material that can separate oil and water, which ...

Toilet paper sensors

Tissue paper sensors show promise for health care, entertainment, robotics

16-Feb-2018

University of Washington engineers have turned tissue paper – similar to toilet tissue – into a new kind of wearable sensor that can detect a pulse, a blink of an eye and other human movement. The sensor is light, flexible and inexpensive, with potential applications in health care, entertainment ...

Mass production of new class of semiconductors closer to reality

13-Feb-2018

Two Waterloo chemists have made it easier for manufacturers to produce a new class of faster and cheaper semiconductors. The chemists have found a way to simultaneously control the orientation and select the size of single-walled carbon nanotubes deposited on a surface. That means the developers ...

Paving the way for a non-electric battery to store solar energy

21-Dec-2017

Materials chemists have been trying for years to make a new type of battery that can store solar or other light-sourced energy in chemical bonds rather than electrons, one that will release the energy on demand as heat instead of electricity - addressing the need for long-term, stable, efficient ...
