  • GraphON: Conductive coatings and materials breakthrough

    Australia's national science agency, CSIRO, has created a breakthrough new form of graphitic material that's conductive, easy to apply and offers greater control over performance than graphene. GraphON can also be manufactured cheaper and easier, with more flexibility and less hazardous waste than c more

  • Tiny fibers create unseen plastic pollution

    While the polyester leisure suit was a 1970s mistake, polyester and other synthetic fibers like nylon are still around and are a major contributor to the microplastics load in the environment, according to a Penn State materials scientist, who suggests switching to biosynthetic fibers to solve this more

  • Lefty or righty molecules lend a hand to material structures

    As below, so above. That seems to be an operating principle for molecules that start with a basic chirality - or "handed-ness" -- and pass it on as they combine into larger structures. An international team that included Rice University materials scientist Edwin Thomas pried a new, fundamental detai 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

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

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

The Chemistry of a Football Shirt

With the new season of the Premier League kicking off this weekend, it seemed a good time to take a look at the chemicals that make up your average football shirt. Even if the start of a new football season isn’t the kind of event to fill you with excitement, it’s still intriguing from a chemistry p more

Good Dropping Point Practice

Technical products such as ointments, synthetic and natural resins, edible fats, greases, waxes, fatty polymers, bitumens, and tars have no defined melting point. They soften as the temperature rises and gradually melt down over a relatively large melting interval. The determination of the dropping

Good Titration Practice™ Polyols and Polymers

Polyols and resins are becoming more and more relevant in our lives. Not only used for making polymers, polyols see more use in construction materials, paints and bonding. Titration is commonly used to quantify key characteristics of polyols which vary as much as their intended use. Learn the best m

  • 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

  • Light-regulated production of biodegradable plastics

    Light is a powerful tool to manipulate a vast variety of chemical processes. The use of specific photo-chromic molecules allows chemists to perform reactions in a reversible fashion with a high spatio-temporal resolution. more
