  • Stiff fibres spun from slime

    Nature is an excellent teacher – even for material scientists. Researchers, including scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, have now observed a remarkable mechanism by which polymer materials are formed. In order to capture prey, velvet worms shoot out a sticky secretion more

  • AkzoNobel on way to doubling capacity at organic peroxides plant in China

    AkzoNobel's Specialty Chemicals business has entered the next phase of a major expansion at its organic peroxides facility in Ningbo, China, which will increase production capacity by more than 100% by the third quarter of 2018. The company's Ningbo site produces dicumyl peroxide (DCP), an organic p more

  • A radical solution comes from mixing tools

    For natural gas to be efficiently converted into useful industrial products requires the right catalytic process. Researchers from KAUST and the US combine state-of-the-art techniques for material characterization to demonstrate a unique reaction pathway that shows that molten catalysts based on sod more

New Polymers for Solar Power

As part of the 2015–2016 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Scott T. Milner RI ’16 discusses current trends in solar power, how solar cells work, and how polymer-based materials may offer an attractive alternative to silicon. more

World's first directly light powered walking device

Scientists have developed a polymer film with liquid crystals, that can undulate under the influence of light. They clamped a strip of this material in a rectangular frame, and it goes for a walk all on its own when illuminated. This research, performed by scientists of Eindhoven University of T ... more

Curvature from planar polymer sheets in response to light

Researchers at NC State have developed a way to create curvature from 2D sheets using only light.The advance builds on earlier work by the same research team, which focused on self-folding 3-D structures. The key advance here is that rather than having the plastic fold along sharp lines – into s ... more

The Chemistry of the World Cup Football

A number of chemical materials are used in the manufacture of the Brazuca, the World Cup football. The majority of these materials are polymers; these are very long molecules built up from many smaller component molecules. A simple, everyday example is polyethene, used to make some plastic bags. Dif more

A Guide to Common Household Plastics

Plastic is everywhere in our day to day lives – but, of course, ‘plastic’ is just a catch-all term for a range of different chemical substances. This graphic takes a look at some of the more common plastics we encounter on a regular basis, and examines their chemical structures. Below, we’ll also ta more

The Chemistry of the EURO 2016 Football

This year’s European Championships are now well under way in France, and there’s already been some great football on show. It might surprise you to learn that some chemistry has also been taking centre-stage! The EURO 2016 ball is a triumph of materials science, and in this post we take a look at so more

DMA Master Curves and the TTS principle

The frequency behavior of viscoelastic polymeric materials is essential and has been investigated intensively by Williams, Landel, and Ferry. The time-temperature superposition allows the extension of the experimentally accessible frequencies from about 4 decades, up to about 20 decades. Individual

  • Modular biofactories at the cellular level

    Despite his love for complex molecular architectures, this „dyed-in-the-wool“ bio-organic chemist has never embraced the conventional segregation of synthetic polymers and bio­logical macromolecules. All molecules are composed of atoms, after all. Why make an artificial distinction? Why not simply combine these domains together? more
