Electrode’s ‘hot edges’ convert CO₂ gas into fuels and chemicals

16-May-2019

A team of scientists has created a bowl-shaped electrode with 'hot edges' which can efficiently convert CO2 from gas into carbon based fuels and chemicals, helping combat the climate change threat posed by atmospheric carbon dioxide. The research team, from the University of Bath, Fudan ...

Secrets of fluorescent microalgae could lead to super-efficient solar cells

13-May-2019

Tiny light-emitting microalgae, found in the ocean, could hold the secret to the next generation of organic solar cells, according to new research carried out at the Universities of Birmingham and Utrecht. Microalgae are probably the oldest surviving living organisms on the planet. They have ...

Wonder material: Individual 2D phosphorene nanoribbons made for the first time

12-Apr-2019

Tiny, individual, flexible ribbons of crystalline phosphorus have been made by UCL researchers in a world first, and they could revolutionise electronics and fast-charging battery technology. Since the isolation of 2-dimensional phosphorene, which is the phosphorus equivalent of graphene, in ...

Scientists squeeze catalysts inside host materials like a ship into a bottle

27-Mar-2019

Scientists at Queen Mary University of London have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like when model ships are unfolded inside a bottle. When materials are confined like this on such a small scale, and without breaking the host, they behave ...

1 + 1 does not equal 2 for graphene-like 2D materials

13-Mar-2019

Physicists from the University of Sheffield have discovered that when two atomically thin graphene-like materials are placed on top of each other their properties change, and a material with novel hybrid properties emerges, paving the way for design of new materials and nano-devices. This happens ...

Fibers from old tires can improve fire resistance of concrete

21-Feb-2019

A new way of protecting concrete from fire damage using materials recycled from old tyres has been successfully tested by researchers at the University of Sheffield. The team used fibres extracted from the textile reinforcement commonly embedded into tyres to guarantee their performance. Adding ...

Shaking off fluorochemicals from outdoor and protective clothing

Most treated clothing over-engineered for consumer purposes

31-Jan-2019

Rain-repelling fluorochemicals used in waterproof clothing can and should be phased out as unnecessary and environmentally harmful, textile researchers argue. And yet they remain the only effective option for medics and emergency service personnel. New research demonstrates how waterproofs using ...
