Nanomaterials hold promise for producing hydrogen from water


Hydrogen holds promise as an inexpensive form of clean energy, but finding an efficient and affordable way to produce the fuel from water - a technique known as water-splitting - remains a key scientific challenge. A researcher from the University of Houston is working with a colleague in Taiwan ...


SONGWON begins large scale manufacture of functional monomers


Having started to develop functional monomers about two years ago, SONGWON has now begun bulk manufacture at its production site in Ulsan, South Korea. These monomers provide resins and polymers with special functions, one of the most important being improvement of the physical and chemical ...


Nanomaterials: What are the environmental and health risks?


From nanoscale silver to titanium dioxide for air purification, the use of nanomaterials of high commercial relevance proves to have clear benefits as it attracts investments, and raises concerns. 'Nano' sized materials (a nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre) could pose environmental and ...

Paints and varnishes based on potato starch

Metal coating based on renewable raw materials


If a surface has to be protected against corrosion, in 80 percent of all cases this takes place through coating it with paints or varnishes. When doing so, the proportion of bio-based, environmentally-friendly solutions is extremely small. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied ...
