  • Scientists offer designer 'big atoms' on demand

    In the not-so-distant future, researchers may be able to build atoms to your specifications with the click of a button. It's still the stuff of science fiction, but a team at the University of Colorado Boulder reports that it is getting closer when it comes to controlling and assembling particles ca more

  • Mussel research strenghtens graphene

    Researchers demonstrated the mussel-inspired reinforcement of graphene fibers for the improvement of different material properties. A research group under Professor Sang Ouk Kim applied polydopamine as an effective infiltrate binder to achieve high mechanical and electrical properties for graphene-b more

  • Efficient synthesis of multi-substituted anilines by domino rearrangement

    Anilines have been widely used in medicine, in particular in acetaminophen pain killers. They are also used in organic materials, such as liquid crystals and organic light-emitting diodes. The ability to efficiently synthesize a new class of aniline derivatives will enable further developments in me 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
