Discovery means new class of materials and technologies
Australian researchers and their colleagues from Russia and China have shown that it is possible to study the magnetic properties of ultrathin materials directly, via a new microscopy technique that opens the door to the discovery of more two-dimensional (2D) magnetic materials, with all sorts of ...
Meeting growing demand for increased storage capacity
Demand for integrated energy storage devices is growing rapidly as people rely more and more on portable and wireless electronics, and the global need grows for clean energy sources such as solar and wind energies. This is creating an exponential need for advanced energy storage technologies - ...
Novel chip sensor quickly and continuously does all the work of a chemistry laboratory
A new microchip that enables continuous monitoring of pH and chlorine levels in swimming pools will vastly improve water safety and hygiene for more than 2.7 million Australians as new research shows it can deliver consistent and accurate pool chemistry for reliable pool management. Developed by ...
New technique does not require the typical metal catalysts or special raw materials to turn carbon into crystalline graphite
Curtin University researchers have unexpectedly discovered a new way to make crystalline graphite, an essential material used in the making of lithium ion batteries. Described in a research paper published in Nature's Communications Materials, the new technique does not require the typical metal ...
Powerful electrochemical process destroys water contaminants, such as pesticides
A team of engineers may be one step closer to cleaning up heavily contaminated industrial wastewater streams. Researchers from the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering developed an electrochemical oxidation process with the aim of cleaning up complex wastewater that contained a toxic ...
Making catalysts has been expensive and complicated – until now
Chemical engineers from UNSW Sydney have developed new technology that helps convert harmful carbon dioxide emissions into chemical building blocks to make useful industrial products like fuel and plastics. And if adopted on a large scale, the process could give the world breathing space as it ...
Largest spectral, color-tuning range from an atomically thin quantum system demonstrated
The researchers say their results, using an atomically thin material, hexagonal boron nitride, constitute a significant step forward in understanding light-matter interactions of quantum systems in 2D materials, and the journey towards scalable on-chip devices for quantum technologies. The study ...
Turn tropical fruits into super-capacitors
Imagine if we could use naturally-grown products, like plants and fruit, to store electricity that charges commonly used electronics like mobile phones, tablets, laptops or even electric cars? Researchers from the University of Sydney have done just that, and have developed a method that uses ...
After 90 years, scientists reveal the structure of benzene
One of the fundamental mysteries of chemistry has been solved by Australian scientists - and the result may have implications for future designs of solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes and other next gen technologies. Ever since the 1930s debate has raged inside chemistry circles concerning ...
Safe Potassium-Ion Batteries
Australian scientists have developed a nonflammable electrolyte for potassium and potassium-ion batteries, for applications in next-generation energy-storage systems beyond lithium technology. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists write that the novel electrolyte based on an organic ...
