Phenyl addition made a poison useful for a chemical reaction in catalysis

20-Nov-2018

Scientists from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT), Japan, have discovered that a catalyst poison, which deactivates homogeneous catalysts, can be "reborn" as an efficient ligand by introduction of a substituent, in chemical reactions. This finding is of service to expand the ...

Printed 'coffee rings' avoided with nanofibers

Cellulose nanofibers can help particles in ink and printed electronics disperse evenly

12-May-2017

Drying is an important part of printing words and electronics. Particles suspended in liquid are applied to a surface and the liquid evaporates leaving the particles behind. Many times, the particles dry unevenly because of the so-called 'coffee ring effect'. Much like when spilled coffee dries ...
