Pointed tips on aluminum 'octopods' increase catalytic reactivity
Points matter when designing nanoparticles that drive important chemical reactions using the power of light. Researchers at Rice University's Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) have long known that a nanoparticle's shape affects how it interacts with light, and their latest study shows how shape ...
Pollutant-destroying properties surprise Rice engineer: ‘It’s not supposed to work’
Rice University chemical engineers found an efficient catalyst for destroying PFAS "forever" chemicals where they least expected. "It was the control," said Rice Professor Michael Wong, referring to the part of a scientific experiment where researchers don't expect surprises. The control group is ...
Researchers adapt 2D 'sandwich' for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy
A sandwich of molybdenum, sulfur and selenium turns out to be deliciously useful for detecting biomolecules. Tests at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering of a two-dimensional Janus compound showed it could be an effective and universal platform for improving the detection of ...
One nanotube could be great for electronics applications, but there's new evidence that two could be tops. Rice University engineers already knew that size matters when using single-walled carbon nanotubes for their electrical properties. But until now, nobody had studied how electrons act when ...
Now there's evidence that oil and water do mix. Sort of. Scientists at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering show that microscopic saltwater droplets emulsify crude oil when each has the right composition. Understanding how they combine is important to enhanced oil recovery. Rice chemical ...
Scientists shrink laser-induced graphene for flexible electronics
You don't need a big laser to make laser-induced graphene (LIG). Scientists at Rice University, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT Knoxville) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are using a very small visible beam to burn the foamy form of carbon into microscopic patterns. The labs ...
The process of developing better rechargeable batteries may be cloudy, but there's an alumina lining. A slim layer of the metal oxide applied to common cathodes by engineers at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering revealed new phenomena that could lead to batteries that are better geared ...
For years, a new synthesis method has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna) to unlock the secrets of "strange metals". Now a breakthrough has been achieved. Superconductors allow electrical current to flow without any resistance - but only below a certain critical temperature. Many materials have to ...
Scientists find overabundance of intentional defects can cause battery cathodes to fail
Intentional defects in batteries have given Rice University scientists a window into the hazards of pushing lithium-ion cells too far. New simulations by Rice materials scientist Ming Tang and graduate student Kaiqi Yang, detailed in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, shows too much stress in ...
A research collaboration between Rice University and the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University has found that old newspapers can be used as a low cost, eco-friendly material on which to grow single walled carbon nanotubes on a large scale. Carbon nanotubes are tiny ...
