Novel gel-creation method could open applications in water filtration, other applications
Oil and water may not mix, but adding the right nanoparticles to the recipe can convert these two immiscible fluids into an exotic gel with uses ranging from batteries to water filters to tint-changing smart windows. A new approach to creating this unusual class of soft materials could carry them ...
Research creates process that advances the field of carbon utilization
In an effort to develop sustainable solutions to humanity's energy needs, many scientists are studying carbon capture and utilization -- the practice of using excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere or from point sources, instead of fossil fuels, to synthesize chemicals used to make everyday ...
Researchers make organic frameworks that could sift antibiotic residue out of water
An international team of researchers recently synthesized polyarylether-based covalent organic frameworks, the most stable crystalline porous material on record. The team, which includes the University of Delaware's Yushan Yan and Jilin University's Qianrong (Frank) Fang, a former postdoctoral ...
Novel two-step CO2 conversion technology
A team of researchers at the University of Delaware's Center for Catalytic Science and Technology (CCST) has discovered a novel two-step process to increase the efficiency of carbon dioxide (CO2) electrolysis, a chemical reaction driven by electrical currents that can aid in the production of ...
The chunk of metal sitting on a table in Joel Rosenthal's office at the University of Delaware looks like it should belong in a wizard's pocket. Shiny silver with shocks of pink and splashes of gold, it's called bismuth, and it's currently used to make products ranging from shotgun pellets to ...
As more carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere, the global ocean soaks up much of the excess, storing roughly 30 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions coming from human activities. In this sense, the ocean has acted as a buffer to slow down the greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere and, ...
The shampoo you washed your hair with this morning. The balloons for the party. Refrigerators and sunglasses, medicine and mosquito repellent, guitar strings and fishing lures. These -- and thousands of other products we use every day -- contain chemicals made from petroleum. But researchers at ...
A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has developed a technology that could make fuel cells cheaper and more durable, a breakthrough that could speed up the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are a green alternative to internal combustion engines ...
A pair of engineers at the University of Delaware has developed a process to form interwoven polymer networks more easily, quickly and sustainably than traditional methods allow. Their secret ingredient? Blue light. Abhishek Shete, graduate research assistant in materials science and engineering, ...
Molecular scale science may inform water purification methods, battery improvements
Methods to improve water purification or build better batteries are problems that have challenged scientists for decades. Advances have inched forward, but rising demand moves the finish line further and further away. At the same time, the chemical reactions that make these improvements possible ...
