The new technique is particularly attractive for decentralized manufacturing operations
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a faster, less expensive technique for producing hindered amines – a class of chemicals used as building blocks in products ranging from pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals to detergents and organic light emitting diodes. “Hindered ...
It's relevant to everything from oil & gas to pharma manufacturing to food processing to chemical manufacturing
For the first time, researchers have been able capture images providing unprecedented details of how particles behave in a liquid suspension when the phenomenon known as shear thickening takes place. The work allows us to directly understand the processes behind shear thickening, which had ...
To make electricity, just squish it, twist it, or stretch it
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a soft, stretchable device that converts movement into electricity and works in both dry and wet environments. “Mechanical energy – such as the kinetic energy of wind, waves, body movement and vibrations from motors – is abundant,” says ...
The adsorption of ions from the electrolyte at an electrode surface is a ubiquitous process, of use for both existing and emerging electrochemical energy technologies. But what happens when these ions penetrate very small spaces? To address this question, researchers at NC State re-examined the ...
"Autonomous systems have tremendous potential for accelerating chemical R&D and manufacturing"
Having the right tool for the job makes the job a lot easier, less expensive and faster. Chemical engineering researchers have now developed a virtual laboratory that can be used to determine the artificial intelligence (AI) tools best suited for addressing various chemical synthesis challenges ...
Chemical engineering researchers have developed a new catalyst that significantly increases yield in styrene manufacturing, while simultaneously reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. "Styrene is a synthetic chemical that is used to make a variety of plastics, resins and other ...
Fully autonomous materials development and manufacturing
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University at Buffalo have developed a technology called "Artificial Chemist," which incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and an automated system for performing chemical reactions to accelerate R&D and manufacturing of commercially ...
Discovery could drastically reduce ethylene production costs
A research team led by North Carolina State University has engineered a new catalyst that can more efficiently convert ethane into ethylene, which is used in a variety of manufacturing processes. The discovery could be used in a conversion process to drastically reduce ethylene production costs ...
Inspired by the flashing colors of the neon tetra fish, researchers have developed a technique for changing the color of a material by manipulating the orientation of nanostructured columns in the material. "Neon tetras can control their brightly colored stripes by changing the angle of tiny ...
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique that takes advantage of gold nanoparticles to trigger the sequential unfolding of three-dimensional structures using different wavelengths of light. Specifically, the technique makes use of the fact that different ...
