New route to PHAs: naturally degradable bioplastics

Chemical catalysis for an existing class of biomaterials

25-Nov-2019

A tide of public momentum is swelling against the crisis of petroleum-based plastics, which are sitting in our landfills, floating in our oceans, and showing up in our air and even our food. Meanwhile, in a Colorado State University chemistry laboratory, polymer scientists are toiling toward what ...

A polymer that puts plastic on a better path toward recyclability

27-Apr-2018

Researchers have developed a family of synthetic polymers that can be repeatedly recycled, an important feat because current efforts to recycle plastic are so limited. Globally, the production of plastic has increased to the point where output is expected to exceed 500 million metric tons by ...

How biofuels from plant fibers could combat global warming

28-Feb-2018

Scientists, companies and government agencies are hard at work on decreasing greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. In recent years, biofuels produced from corn have emerged as a fuel source to power motor vehicles and, perhaps, airplanes. But corn is problematic as a biofuel source ...

Cleanup method for stubborn contaminants

17-Nov-2016

They're in stain-resistant carpet, paint, permanent markers, food packaging and firefighting foam. Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), a broad class of manufactured chemicals, touch every corner of the industrialized world. They're impervious to traditional remediation strategies, and when they're ...

Liquid-repellant tape adheres to any surface

24-Oct-2016

Arun Kota, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Colorado State University, has made a superomniphobic tape that, when adhered to any surface, gives the surface liquid-repelling properties. Superomniphobic surfaces are extremely repellent to all liquids, made possible by an air cushion ...

Hydraulic fracturing chemical spills on agricultural land need scrutiny

03-Jun-2016

Hydraulic fracturing, a widely used method for extracting oil and gas from otherwise impenetrable shale and rock formations, involves not only underground injections composed mostly of water, but also a mixture of chemical additives. These chemicals range from toxic biocides and surfactants, to ...

Beating the limits of the light microscope, one photon at a time

30-May-2016

The world's most advanced light microscopes allow us to see single molecules, proteins, viruses and other very small biological structures. But even the best microscopes have their limits. Colorado State University scientists are pushing the limits of a technique called super-resolution ...
