Researchers create cheaper, high performing LED


A team of Florida State University materials researchers has developed a new type of light-emitting diode, or LED, using an organic-inorganic hybrid that could lead to cheaper, brighter and mass produced lights and displays in the future. Assistant Professor of Physics Hanwei Gao and Associate ...


Researchers create technology to produce lighter, long-lasting batteries from silicon


Substantially smaller and longer-lasting batteries for everything from portable electronic devices to electric cars could be come a reality thanks to an innovative technology developed by University of Waterloo researchers. Zhongwei Chen, a chemical engineering professor at Waterloo, and a team ...

Discovery about new battery overturns decades of false assumptions

Abundant potassium than rarer lithium used


New findings at Oregon State University have overturned a scientific dogma that stood for decades, by showing that potassium can work with graphite in a potassium-ion battery - a discovery that could pose a challenge and sustainable alternative to the widely-used lithium-ion battery. Lithium-ion ...


Designed defects in liquid crystals can guide construction of nanomaterials


Imperfections running through liquid crystals can be used as miniscule tubing, channeling molecules into specific positions to form new materials and nanoscale structures, according to engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The discovery could have applications in fields as diverse as ...

Discovery of a highly efficient catalyst eases way to hydrogen economy


Hydrogen is usually produced by separating water with electrical power. And although the water supply is essentially limitless, a major roadblock to a future "hydrogen economy" is the need for platinum or other expensive noble metals in the water-splitting devices.Noble metals resist oxidation ...

Researchers combine disciplines, computational programs to determine atomic structure


A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Indiana University combined two techniques to determine the structure of cyanostar, a new abiological molecule that captures unwanted negative ions in solutions. When Semin Lee, a chemist and Beckman Institute postdoctoral fellow at ...


Cages offer new direction in sustainable catalyst design


University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have developed a new approach to structuring the catalysts used in essential reactions in the chemical and energy fields. The advance offers a pathway for industries to wean themselves off of platinum, one of the scarcest metals in the earth's crust.In an ...


Dow Corning wins safety award at IChemE North America Awards


Leading chemical engineers have been recognised by IChemE at the Institution’s first North America Awards reception in Vancouver, Canada. Dow Corning clinched the IChemE North America Safety Award (sponsored by Chevron) and Nishit Doshi, a chemical engineer lifted the IChemE Young Chemical ...


USDA scientists use commercial enzyme to improve grain ethanol production


A commercial enzyme could reduce overall costs linked with producing ethanol from grain, and also reduce associated emissions of greenhouse gases, according to a study by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists and colleagues.The researchers found that the enzyme helps extract water from ...


H.B. Fuller Announces Leadership Change

Board Names Jim Owens as new CEO


H.B. Fuller Company, announced that the board of directors has appointed Jim Owens to succeed Michele Volpi as president and chief executive officer and director, effective immediately. Volpi will step down from the board of directors. Owens, H.B. Fuller's senior vice president, Americas, joined ...
