Capturing nanoplastics in tap water with light

Electro-photonic tweezer captures and detects trace amount of nanoplastics through surface-enhanced Raman scattering


Nanoplastics are plastics that have been discarded from our daily lives and that enter ecosystems in the size scale below 1 micro-metter after their physical and chemical disintegration. Recent research has shown that the concentration of microplastics in the major rivers in South Korea is the ...

Development of stretchable and printable free-form lithium-ion batteries

Realization of stretchable, adhesive, and mechanically deformable batteries that effectively transfer ions


A Korean research team has developed a soft, mechanically deformable, and stretchable lithium battery which can be used in the development of wearable devices, and examined the battery’s feasibility by printing them on clothing surfaces. The research team, led by Dr. Jeong Gon Son from the Soft ...

Advance in water purification

Using radicalized NOX derivatives supported on metal oxides


NOX (X=1 or 2) emitted from stationery/mobile sources are conventionally deemed as notorious, anthropogenic precursors of ultrafine particulate matters (PM2.5) because NOX can undergo a series of SO2-assisted photochemical transformative stages to finally evolve PM2.5 functioning as an air ...

The new alchemy in carbon neutrality: turning water into ammonia with only renewable energy!

Producing ‘green ammonia’ with zero carbon emissions


The Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM), an institution under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Science and ICT, has developed an innovative process that uses renewable energy to produce ammonia at room temperature and normal pressure. This innovative technology is expected to ...

The dream artificial photosynthesis technology ventures from the laboratory

"We developed a meaningful artificial photosynthesis system that directly operates through sunlight in real solar environments by using commercialized silicon solar cells"


Korean researchers are striving to turn artificial photosynthesis technology into reality to achieve carbon neutrality or accomplish a net carbon emission value of 0. Artificial photosynthesis is a technology that mimics natural photosynthesis by using the received sunlight energy to convert ...

Making seawater drinkable in minutes

A new alternative seawater desalination membrane to produce drinking water


According to the World Health Organization, about 785 million people around the world lack a clean source of drinking water. Despite the vast amount of water on Earth, most of it is seawater and freshwater accounts for only about 2.5% of the total. One of the ways to provide clean drinking water ...

Semiconductor technology mitigates fire risk in electric vehicle batteries

Convergence of semiconductor physics and electrochemistry leads to effective inhibition of dendrite formation using semiconducting passivation layers


Despite rapid development of electric vehicles (EVs), the safety of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries remains a concern as they are as a fire and explosion risk. Among the various approaches to tackle this issue, Korean researchers have used semiconductor technology to improve the safety of ...

Biodiesel made from discarded cardboard boxes

Development of a microorganism that doubles the yield of biodiesel precursor production using genetic scissors and based on the principles of evolution


Automobile exhaust emitted by fossil-fuel-based vehicles, especially those operating on diesel, is known to be a major source of fine dust and greenhouse gases. Using biodiesel instead of diesel is an effective way of coping with climate change caused by greenhouse gases while reducing fine dust ...
