Combining sunlight and wastewater nitrate to make the world’s No. 2 chemical

UIC engineers convert nitrates to ammonia in sustainable electrochemical reaction with high solar-to-fuel efficiency

10-Sep-2021

Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago have created a solar-powered electrochemical reaction that notonly uses wastewater tomake ammonia — the secondmost-producedchemical in the world — but also achieves a solar-to-fuel efficiency that is 10 times better thanany ...

Manipulating atoms to make better superconductors

05-Mar-2020

Scientists have been interested in superconductors - materials that transmit electricity without losing energy - for a long time because of their potential for advancing sustainable energy production. However, major advances have been limited because most materials that conduct electricity have ...

Materials could delay frost up to 300 times longer than existing anti-icing coatings

26-Mar-2019

Most techniques to prevent frost and ice formation on surfaces rely heavily on heating or liquid chemicals that need to be repeatedly reapplied because they easily wash away. Even advanced anti-icing materials have problems functioning under conditions of high humidity and subzero conditions, ...

Semiconductor dynamics may help improve energy efficiency

08-Sep-2017

Researchers examining the flow of electricity through semiconductors have uncovered another reason these materials seem to lose their ability to carry a charge as they become more densely "doped." Their results may help engineers design faster semiconductors in the future. Semiconductors are ...

Bubble-recoil could be used to cool microchips, even in space

08-Mar-2017

The bubbles that form on a heated surface create a tiny recoil when they leave it, like the kick from a gun firing blanks. Now researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, under funding from NASA, have shown how this miniscule force can be harnessed to mix liquid coolant around ...
