Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a new method for plastic waste to be converted into hydrogen based on pyrolysis, a high temperature chemical process. Unlike PET plastic bottles which can be recycled easily, plastic litter containing ...
New composite film brings down the heat index or ‘felt air temperature’ by about 40%
A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a novel super-hygroscopic material that enhances sweat evaporation within a personal protective suit, to create a cooling effect for better thermal comfort for users such as healthcare workers and other frontline ...
Full acquisition in 2026
The Biesterfeld Group, Hamburg, has established a joint venture by acquiring a majority stake in Singapore-based GME Chemicals. The closing was now completed. A complete takeover of the remaining shares will take place in five years, according to the contract. By acquiring a stake in GME ...
Efficient water and urea electrolysis with bimetallic yolk-shell nanoparticles
Electrolytic hydrogen production powered by renewable energy is seen as an environmentally friendly means to ameliorate global climate and energy problems. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a research team has now introduced a novel and inexpensive material for electrodes that may provide for ...
To enable the development of wearable devices that possess advanced ultraviolet (UV) detection functions, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have created a new type of light sensor that is both flexible and highly sensitive. While invisible to the human ...
Shells of tamarind, a tropical fruit consumed worldwide, are discarded during food production. As they are bulky, tamarind shells take up a considerable amount of space in landfills where they are disposed as agricultural waste. However, a team of international scientists led by Nanyang ...
Separation of Trace Acetylene from Ethylene in Ultramicroporous Metal–Organic Frameworks
Ethylene, a key feedstock in the chemical industry, often includes traces of acetylene contaminants, which need to be removed. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers describe a robust and regenerable porous metal–organic framework that captures acetylene with extraordinary efficiency and ...
Using orange peel to efficiently recover precious metals from battery waste
Scientists led by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a novel method of using fruit peel waste to extract and reuse precious metals from spent lithium-ion batteries in order to create new batteries. The team demonstrated their concept using orange peel, ...
Novel shadow-effect energy generator uses the contrast in illumination between the lit and shadowed areas
Shadows are often associated with darkness and uncertainty. Now, researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) are giving shadows a positive spin by demonstrating a way to harness this common but often overlooked optical effect to generate electricity. This novel concept opens up ...
Move away from inefficient trial-and-error developments to quantitatively design luminescent materials
There is an ongoing demand in biological research to accelerate the development of fluorescent probes based on the photo-induced electron transfer (PET) mechanism. By modulating PET formations, these probes significantly change fluorescence intensities, allowing a convenient route to monitor ...
