Structure may reveal conditions needed for high-temperature superconductivity
When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy. This "magic-angle" transformation in bilayer graphene was observed ...
Brenntag announces the acquisition of ICL Packed Ltd., a subsidiary of Industrial Chemical Ltd. (ICL). Operating from England the acquired business is a specialist in the distribution of packaged chemicals for water treatment. Steven Terwindt, Member of the Management Board of Brenntag Group and ...
Materials like this could potentially be developed as thin coatings to de-ice car windows
As we move away from fossil fuels and shift to renewable energy to tackle climate change, the need for new ways to capture and store energy becomes increasingly important. Lancaster University researchers studying a crystalline material have discovered it has properties that allow it to capture ...
Researchers at the University of Liverpool and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology have made reported some exciting findings relating to metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), a class of porous materials, which could benefit a wide range of important gas separation ...
Scientists have broken the rules of enzyme engineering to unlock a new method for creating chemical reactions that could unlock a wide range of new applications - from creating new drugs to food production
In their paper published in Nature Catalysis, Professor Francesca Paradisi and Dr. Martina Contente of the University of Nottingham and the University of Bern show a new method to produce chemical molecules more efficiently through a new one step reaction in the enzyme. Professor Paradis is ...
A step towards photobiological green energy development under natural aerobic conditions
Scientists have built tiny droplet-based microbial factories that produce hydrogen, instead of oxygen, when exposed to daylight in air. The findings of the international research team based at the University of Bristol and Harbin Institute of Technology in China, are published in Nature ...
Researchers have developed environmentally friendly materials that could harvest enough energy from indoor light to power wireless smart devices
We are increasingly using more smart devices like smartphones, smart speakers, and wearable health and wellness sensors in our homes, offices, and public buildings. However, the batteries they use can deplete quickly and contain toxic and rare environmentally damaging chemicals, so researchers ...
Scientists have found a way to generate electricity from nylon, raising hopes that the clothes on our backs will become an important source of energy
Researchers have found a way to produce nylon fibres that are smart enough to produce electricity from simple body movement, paving the way for smart clothes that will monitor our health through miniaturised sensors and charge our devices without any external power source. This discovery - a ...
Reprogramming bacterial protein organelles as a nanoreactor for hydrogen production
Researchers at the University of Liverpool have unlocked new possibilities for the future development of sustainable, clean bioenergy. The study, published in Nature Communications, shows how bacterial protein 'cages' can be reprogrammed as nanoscale bioreactors for hydrogen production. The ...
Material could be used in smart textiles, medical devices and more
As anyone who has ever straightened their hair knows, water is the enemy. Hair painstakingly straightened by heat will bounce back into curls the minute it touches water. Why? Because hair has shape memory. Its material properties allow it to change shape in response to certain stimuli and return ...
