Spin-out company formed
Engineers have created intelligent 3D printers that can quickly detect and correct errors, even in previously unseen designs, or unfamiliar materials like ketchup and mayonnaise, by learning from the experiences of other machines. The engineers, from the University of Cambridge, developed a ...
Researchers from the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) have developed a new enzyme engineering platform to improve plastic degrading enzymes through directed evolution. To illustrate the utility of their platform, they have engineered an enzyme that can successfully degrade ...
Researchers identified synthetic polymers that induce biofilm formation in E. coli, a bacterium commonly used in biocatalysis
Birmingham scientists have revealed a new method to increase efficiency in biocatalysis, in a paper published in Materials Horizons. Biocatalysis uses enzymes, cells or microbes to catalyse chemical reactions, and is used in settings such as the food and chemical industries to make products that ...
Graphene scientists from The University of Manchester have created a novel ‘nano-petri dish’ using two-dimensional (2D) materials to create a new method of observing how atoms move in liquid Publishing in the journal, Nature,the team led by researchers based at the National Graphene Institute ...
Integrated Graphene has developed a unique process to produce a pure 3D Graphene Foam onto a range of substances at ambient room temperature
Integrated Graphene, a Scotland-based technology development and integration company, has announced plans to invest up to £8 million in scaling up its revolutionary 3D Graphene foam, Gii®, manufacturing process to meet surging global demand from the human diagnostics and energy markets. Founded ...
Graphene meets robots as automation is combined with advanced materials
Automated systems combined with new materials will combine as a “dream team” to start a revolution in advanced manufacturing, says a graphene pioneer. Automation and robotic systems are on the brink of transforming the way we all work and live says Dr Vivek Koncherry, who is based at The ...
Sustainable cellulose start-up Naturbeads is poised to scale up
Naturbeads, a company set up by University of Bath researchers that aims to replace plastic microbeads with sustainable alternatives, is set to scale up its work after receiving £1.3M (€1.5M) in a recent funding round. The investment from Italian Venture Capital fund Progress Tech Transfer, Eos ...
Unlocking possible new ways to make light act powerfully and drive chemical transformations
By trapping light into tiny gaps only a few atoms wide, a team from the NanoPhotonics Centre has magnified optical forces a thousand-fold, strong enough to force atoms into positions that drive chemical reactions more efficiently. “We found a new way to beef up the forces from light, enough to ...
High-speed synchrotron X-ray tomography ‘photograph’ the changing crystal structures in molten alloys as they cool
Scientists from the University of Birmingham have described how microscopic crystals grow and change shape in molten metals as they cool, in research that is breaking new ground in alloy research and paves the way for improving the tensile strength of alloys used in casting and welding. Their ...
Algae-powered computing: Scientists create reliable and renewable biological photovoltaic cell
Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year - and counting - using nothing but ambient light and water. Their system has potential as a reliable and renewable way to power small devices. The system, comparable in size to an AA ...
