Extract from a common kitchen spice could be key to greener, more efficient fuel cells

Discovery brings replacing hydrogen as a fuel cell feedstock one step closer


Turmeric, a spice found in most kitchens, has an extract that could lead to safer, more efficient fuel cells. Researchers at theClemson Nanomaterials Institute (CNI)and their collaborators from theSri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL)in India discovered a novel way to combine ...


New material could boost batteries' power, help power plants


You're going to have to think very small to understand something that has the potential to be very big. A team of researchers, including Kyle Brinkman of Clemson University, developed a material that acts as a superhighway for ions. The material could make batteries more powerful, change how ...


Clemson carbon nanotube research part of $3 million award to enhance energy efficiency


Clemson University is part of a five-year $3 million Air Force Office of Scientific Research award, along with the University of Texas at Dallas and Yale University, to search for nanoscale materials that superconduct to allow for efficient flow of a current. Specifically, the team will explore ...


New angle on gecko research

Scientists discover trigger that deploys geckos' amazing grip


Geckos are very adept at climbing through difficult terrain using an intricate adhesive system. Until now it has not been known when and how they switch on their unique system of traction. Scientists at the University of Calgary and Clemson University in South Carolina have discovered that the ...


Clemson study develops pavement- and environment-friendly deicing chemicals


Studies by a Clemson University civil engineering researcher conclude that the deterioration of concrete pavements at airfields can be accelerated when acetate and formate salts of potassium and sodium are used for deicing and anti-icing. Based on technology invented by Clemson civil engineer ...


US Department of Energy funds Clemson, Savannah River National Laboratory hydrogen research


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded Clemson University researchers, in collaboration with DOE's Savannah River National Laboratory, $409,000 to develop a new polymer membrane that may enable the production of hydrogen using high-temperature heat, such as that from a nuclear ...


Silicon optical fiber made practical


Scientists at Clemson University for the first time have been able to make a practical optical fiber with a silicon core, according to a new paper published in the current issue of the Optical Society's open-access journal, Optics Express. Led by Professor John Ballato and including fiber pioneer ...


Clemson scientists put a (nano) spring in their step


Electronic devices get smaller and more complex every year. It turns out that fragility is the price for miniaturization, especially when it comes to small devices, such as cell phones, hitting the floor. Wouldn't it be great if they bounced instead of cracked when dropped? A team of Clemson ...


Fullerene size matters

How does the reactivity of metallofullerenes correlate with the size of the cage?


Luis Echegoyen and co-workers at Clemson University, US and Luna Innovations Inc., Danville, Virginia have uncovered the reactivity of the higher trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene cages (TNT EMF). Endohedral metallo fullerenes (EMF) are fullerenes that have metal atoms enclosed ...


Customized Y-shaped carbon nanotubes can compute


Researchers at UCSD and Clemson University have discovered that specially synthesized carbon nanotube structures exhibit electronic properties that are improved over conventional transistors used in computers. UCSD Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering professors Prabhakar Bandaru and Sungho Jin, ...
