Nanomembranes with pore molecules for efficient filtration

Method offers the promise of many possible applications across the chemical and pharmaceutical industries

05-Sep-2022

A team from Bielefeld University, Queen Mary University of London, Imperial College London (both United Kingdom) and Northwestern University in Evanston (USA) have produced a new breed of polymer nanomembranes with aligned supramolecular macrocycle molecules. These new nanomembranes demonstrate ...

Scientists create rechargeable swimming microrobots using oil and water

19-Jul-2021

By combining oil drops with water containing a detergent-like substance, the scientists found they could produce artificial swimmers that are able to swim independently and even harvest energy to recharge. The oil droplets use fluctuating temperature changes in their surrounding environment to ...

New material for longer-lasting fuel cells developed

New research suggests that graphene - made in a specific way - could be used to make more durable hydrogen fuel cells for cars

24-Jul-2020

In the study, published in the journal Nanoscale, scientists produced graphene via a special, scalable technique and used it to develop hydrogen fuel cell catalysts. The research team, involving scientists from Queen Mary University of London and University College London (UCL), showed that this ...

Fine-tuning thermoelectric materials for cheaper renewable energy

19-Dec-2019

Researchers from Queen Mary University of London have developed new thermoelectric materials, which could provide a low-cost option for converting heat energy into electricity. Materials known as halide perovskites have been proposed as affordable alternatives to existing thermoelectric ...

Croissant making inspires renewable energy solution

21-Oct-2019

The art of croissant making has inspired researchers from Queen Mary University of London to find a solution to a sustainable energy problem. Croissants are made by pressing and folding dough to create a layered pastry. The researchers applied this technique to a dielectric capacitor, which is a ...

Graphene is 3D as well as 2D

26-Sep-2019

Graphene is actually a 3D material as well as a 2D material, according to a new study from Queen Mary University of London. Realising that it is a 3D material is important for understanding its mechanical properties and for developing novel graphene-based devices. Often hailed as a 'wonder ...

Scientists squeeze catalysts inside host materials like a ship into a bottle

27-Mar-2019

Scientists at Queen Mary University of London have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like when model ships are unfolded inside a bottle. When materials are confined like this on such a small scale, and without breaking the host, they behave ...

Candy cane supercapacitor could enable fast charging of mobile phones

17-Aug-2017

Supercapacitors promise recharging of phones and other devices in seconds and minutes as opposed to hours for batteries. But current technologies are not usually flexible, have insufficient capacities, and for many their performance quickly degrades with charging cycles. Researchers at Queen Mary ...

Scientists move one step closer to creating an invisibility cloak

19-Jul-2016

Scientists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have made an object disappear by using a composite material with nano-size particles that can enhance specific properties on the object's surface. Researchers from QMUL's School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, worked with UK ...

Ph.D. student stumbles upon a new way for producing oldest chemical compounds

30-Oct-2015

A chemistry PhD student from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has found a simple way for the first time of producing two chemical compounds that were first discovered in late 19th century, entirely by accident. The discovery could have implications for fighting disease and growing crops, ...
