MIT researchers create new self-assembling photovoltaic technology that repairs itself


Plants are good at doing what scientists and engineers have been struggling to do for decades: converting sunlight into stored energy, and doing so reliably day after day, year after year. Now some MIT scientists have succeeded in mimicking a key aspect of that process. One of the problems with ...


Nanotubes pass acid test

Rice researchers' method untangles long tubes, clears hurdle toward armchair quantum wire


Rice University scientists have found the "ultimate" solvent for all kinds of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), a breakthrough that brings the creation of a highly conductive quantum nanowire ever closer. Nanotubes have the frustrating habit of bundling, making them less useful than when they're ...


DSM Performance Materials Award 2010 presented to Professor Han E.H. Meijer


Han E.H. Meijer, Professor of Polymer Technology and Scientific Director of the Research School Eindhoven Polymer Laboratories at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, has been awarded the DSM Performance Materials Award 2010 in recognition of his exceptional contributions to ...


Lehigh University professor receives Astellas Award for arsenic groundwater remediation efforts


Arup K. SenGupta, Ph.D., a professor of civil, environmental and chemical engineering at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., has been chosen to receive a 2009 Astellas USA Foundation Award. The award, administered by the American Chemical Society, is given to individuals who have made ...


Pitt-led researchers create nanoparticle coating to prevent freezing rain buildup

Inspired by water-resistant lotus leaves, the Pitt-developed solution repels freezing rain and provides the first evidence of anti-icing ability in superhydrophobic coatings


Preventing the havoc wrought when freezing rain collects on roads, power lines, and aircrafts could be only a few nanometers away. A University of Pittsburgh-led team demonstrates in the Nov. 3 edition of Langmuir a nanoparticle-based coating developed in the lab of Di Gao, a chemical and ...

24-carat gold 'snowflakes' improve graphene's electrical properties


In an effort to make graphene more useful in electronics applications, Kansas State University engineers made a golden discovery -- gold "snowflakes" on graphene. Vikas Berry is a K-State assistant professor of chemical engineering who works with graphene, a carbon material only a single atom ...


Sugar + weed killer = potential clean energy source

A spoonful of herbicide helps the sugar break down in a most delightful way.


Researchers at Brigham Young University have developed a fuel cell – basically a battery with a gas tank – that harvests electricity from glucose and other sugars known as carbohydrates. The human body's preferred energy source could someday power our gadgets, cars or homes. "Carbohydrates are ...


Queen's scientists discover eco-friendly wood dissolution


Scientists at Queen's University Belfast have discovered a new eco-friendly way of dissolving wood using ionic liquids that may help its transformation into popular products such as bio fuels, textiles, clothes and paper. Dr Héctor Rodríguez and Professor Robin Rogers from the University's ...


First high-resolution images of bone, tooth and shell formation


Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have for the first time made high-resolution images of the earliest stages of bone formation. They used the world's most advanced electron microscope to make three-dimensional images of the nano-particles that are at the heart of the ...


Biomass production - careful planning can bring many benefits


One way of supplying energy is to grow plant material and burn it. If managed well most of the carbon released by burning the material will be captured by the growing plants, and so have a low impact on overall levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Better still, the growing plants could be used ...
