Temperature can regulate wetting properties of sprayed latex surfaces
A Swedish-German research team has been using DESY’s X-ray source PETRA III to investigate how surface coatings can be made to attract or repel water using tailor-made latex nanoparticles. Being able to influence the wettability of surfaces during production is important in many applications, from t more
An 18-carat gold nugget made of plastic
ETH researchers have created an incredibly lightweight 18-carat gold, using a matrix of plastic in place of metallic alloy elements. Lovers of gold watches and heavy jewellery will be thrilled. The objects of their desire may someday become much lighter, but without losing any of their glitter. Esp more
A new type of sunscreen
Researchers from France have developed a new type of sunscreen. The sunscreen is made from latex that traps a UVB filter chemical within its structure. The team designed the sunscreen to protect wounded skin, which conventional sun creams are ineffective for. The sun-shielding films were able to blo more

Interactions between similar and dissimilar charged interfaces in the presence of multivalent anions
Direct force measurements involving amidine latex (AL) and sulfate latex (SL) particles in aqueous solutions containing multivalent ferrocyanide anions are presented. These measurements feature three different pairs of particles, namely SL–SL, AL–SL, and AL–AL. The force profiles are quantitatively more
Robust open cellular porous polymer monoliths made from cured colloidal gels of latex particles
The coagulation of oppositely charged latexes, prepared from the soap-free emulsion polymerisation of styrene using water as the reaction medium, resulted in the obtainment of colloidal gels that were porous in nature and held together by electrostatic interactions. Chemical crosslinking, involving more
Dandelions as a new source of natural rubber
More than 12,500 plants produce latex, a colorless to white milky sap that contains, among other things, natural rubber. However, this industrially indispensable raw material is found in only three plants in a quality required to produce high-performance rubber products such as car tires. more
