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 ...


The effects of hydrogen on growing carbon nanotubes


Carbon nanotubes -- long, hollow cylinders of carbon billionths of a meter in diameter -- have many potential uses in nanotechnology, optics, electronics, and many other fields. The exact properties of nanotubes depend on their structure, and scientists as yet have little control over that ...


Buckley Named General Manager of Dow Performance Materials and Elected President and CEO of ANGUS Chemical Company


John Buckley has been named global general manager of Performance Materials, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) and has been elected president and CEO of ANGUS Chemical Company (ANGUS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow. Buckley has worked for the company for 25 years, joining Dow ...


'Nanosprings' offer improved performance in biomedicine, electronics


Researchers at Oregon State University have reported the successful loading of biological molecules onto "nanosprings" – a type of nanostructure that has gained significant interest in recent years for its ability to maximize surface area in microreactors. The findings, announced in the journal ...
