One nanotube could be great for electronics applications, but there's new evidence that two could be tops. Rice University engineers already knew that size matters when using single-walled carbon nanotubes for their electrical properties. But until now, nobody had studied how electrons act when ...
Oxo-product business and HC Manvel manufacturing site to be sold to Aeicon Corporation
HCS Group, a leading international supplier of solutions for high-value hydrocarbon specialties, announced the signing of a definitive agreement to sell its US Oxo-product business to Aeicon Corporation Limited, an investment firm with offices in Houston, TX, USA. The transaction includes the ...
Discovery could mean new uses for the promising nanomaterials
Ten years after producing the first sample of the now widely studied family of nanomaterials, called MXenes, Drexel University researchers have discovered a different way to make the atom-thin material that presents a number of new opportunities for using it. The new discovery removes water from ...
Just 25 industry-standard fast charging cycles can ruin a car's batteries
Commercial fast-charging stations subject electric car batteries to high temperatures and high resistance that can cause them to crack, leak, and lose their storage capacity, write engineers at the University of California, Riverside in a new study published in Energy Storage. To remedy this, the ...
Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel and can be as much as 6 times lighter. These characteristics alone make it a popular material in manufacturing. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign recently uncovered more properties of graphene sheets that can benefit ...
Excess electrons could help break the strong chemical bonds in products that contaminate water supplies
Synthetic chemicals known as per- and polyfluoroalkyls, or PFAS, contain bonds between carbon and fluorine atoms considered the strongest in organic chemistry. Unfortunately, the widespread use of these nonbiodegradable products since the 1940s has contaminated many water supplies across ...
Triple-stranded molecule may help put chemistry's holy grail in reach
Enzymes are nature's powerhouses. Found in the cells of all animals, plants, and every other living organism, they accelerate the chemical reactions that trigger thousands of biological functions--from forming neurons to digesting food. They perform their jobs so selectively and so ...
Scientists have been interested in superconductors - materials that transmit electricity without losing energy - for a long time because of their potential for advancing sustainable energy production. However, major advances have been limited because most materials that conduct electricity have ...
Now there's evidence that oil and water do mix. Sort of. Scientists at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering show that microscopic saltwater droplets emulsify crude oil when each has the right composition. Understanding how they combine is important to enhanced oil recovery. Rice chemical ...
New ferroelectric material can be manipulated using light in previously impossible ways
If new and promising semiconductor materials are to make it into our phones, computers, and other increasingly capable electronics, researchers must obtain greater control over how those materials function. In an article published in Science Advances, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researchers ...
