Novel use of iron-laced carbon nanofibers yields high-performance energy storage

11-Apr-2022

A new study by Chinese researchers demonstrates a novel approach to enhancing the storage performance of batteries and capacitors. The researchers developed a simple yet efficient way to produce a material with excellent performance for use in devices that rely on lithium-ion storage. They ...

Novel platform purifies oil-contaminated seawater

The approach has implications for improving water scarcity around the world, researchers say

28-Mar-2022

The United Nations’ most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reportpaints a bleak picture for the world’s water supply: Of the 7.8 billion people on Earth, about 4 billion do not have access to sufficiently clean water for at least a month every year. While several water ...

Novel synergistic single-atom catalyst approach breaks activity limitation of predecessors

While the developed synergistic catalyst does not erase the need for noble metals, it does reduce the amount needed for a better reaction

28-Mar-2022

The key to chemical reactions is in the name — there needs to be something that causes the chemicals to react to one another. Called a catalyst, this component induces or speeds up reactions in a controlled manner to produce a desired outcome. The catalysts used in several industries are often ...

Copper-silver-gold nanostructure gives carbon-capture-and-utilization a boost

“We thought if two metals were producing good results, then perhaps three metals would be even better”

18-Mar-2022

Chemists have developed a nano-scale structure that combines copper, gold and silver to work as a superior catalyst in a chemical reaction whose improved performance will be essential if carbon capture and utilization efforts are to succeed in helping to mitigate global warming. In the face of ...

"Golden fullerene": ligand-protected nanocluster made of 32 gold atoms

25-Mar-2019

Researchers have synthesized a tiny structure from 32 gold atoms. This nanocluster has a core of 12 gold atoms surrounded by a shell of 20 additional gold atoms. As the scientists report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the unusual stability of this cluster results from electronic interactions ...

Microtube with Built-In Pump

Rapid controlled transport of water droplets by sunlight-powered pump

19-Dec-2018

Driven by natural or artificial sunlight, a novel “microtube pump” transports water droplets over long distances. As reported by Chinese researchers in the Journal Angewandte Chemie, the pump consists of a tube whose properties can be changed asymmetrically through irradiation. This results in ...

Imperial and Tsinghua University launch seed fund for 'ambitious collaborations'

11-Dec-2017

The Tsinghua-Imperial Research and Innovation Fund, which brings together two of the world’s leading research universities, aims to kick-start innovative research projects and concepts that are showing signs of promise but are at an early stage in development and need funding to progress. The ...

Understanding breakups

31-Jan-2017

As interest and demand for nanotechnology continues to rise, so will the need for nanoscale printing and spraying, which relies on depositing tiny drops of liquid onto a surface. Now researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing have developed a new theory that describes how such a nanosized ...

Imitating synapses of the human brain could lead to smarter electronics

13-Nov-2015

Making a computer that learns and remembers like a human brain is a daunting challenge. The complex organ has 86 billion neurons and trillions of connections - or synapses - that can grow stronger or weaker over time. But now scientists report the development of a first-of-its-kind synthetic ...

Biomimetic bricks inspired by nacre

09-Apr-2013

Chinese chemists have developed a new nacre-like material which is stronger than natural nacre (mother of pearl). Nacre is a naturally occurring composite formed from calcium carbonate and biopolymers which create a brickwork structure. It is also nearly a thousand times stronger than any of its ...
