Coatings

An appealing and promising exterior: coatings provide just that – and more, if they are more than mere disguise. They can improve the physical, electrical or chemical properties of surfaces. Formulators are constantly on the lookout for ways to optimise them, often using innovative analysis techniques, knowing that the outer values can matter as much as the inner values.

  • Porous silicon layers for more efficient lithium-ion batteries

    The Fraunhofer FEP has developed coating processes for industry for several years. Recently in the project PoSiBat, Fraunhofer FEP scientists were able to develop a non-toxic and efficient manufacturing process for porous silicon layers. The results of the recently completed project will be presente more

  • Color-changing artificial 'chameleon skin' powered by nanomachines

    Researchers have developed artificial 'chameleon skin' that changes colour when exposed to light and could be used in applications such as active camouflage and large-scale dynamic displays. The material, developed by researchers from the University of Cambridge, is made of tiny particles of gold co more

  • Nanocoating prevents greasy smears

    Not only are greasy fingerprints on shiny stainless steel surfaces unattractive, they also attack the surface in question. A new nanocoating being developed by Fraunhofer researchers will in the future prevent the annoying smudges that result from fingers touching stainless steel surfaces. The key t more

The Chemistry of an Electric Guitar

Electric guitars, on the face of it, might not seem to have much to do with chemistry. However, the materials that make them up are carefully chosen for their chemical properties, without which they simply wouldn’t function. In this graphic, we take a look at some of these materials, and their typic more
