Old newspapers can be used to grow carbon nanotubes

27-Nov-2019

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 ...

Taming defects in nanoporous materials to put them to a good use

Fundamental aspects of defective materials that can be employed to capture CO2

10-Aug-2018

The word "defect" universally evokes some negative, undesirable feature, but researchers at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University have a different opinion: in the realm of nanoporous materials, defects can be put to a good use, if one knows how to tame them. Metal ...

Technique doubles conversion of CO2 to plastic component

24-May-2018

Fossil fuels have long been the precursor to plastic, but new research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and European collaborators could help send that era up in smoke - carbon dioxide, to be exact. Produced almost entirely from burning fossil fuels, carbon dioxide concentrations in the ...

Filter may be a match for fracking water

27-Sep-2017

A new filter produced by Rice University scientists has proven able to remove more than 90 percent of hydrocarbons, bacteria and particulates from contaminated water produced by hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations at shale oil and gas wells. The work by Rice chemist Andrew Barron and his ...
