Solving the plastic shortage with a new chemical catalyst

New catalyst, which can make propylene from natural gas, is at least 10 times more efficient than current commercial catalysts

12-Jul-2021

In a year that has already battered manufacturing supply chains, yet another shortage is complicating manufacturers' and consumers' lives: plastics, and the food packaging, automotive components, clothing, medical and lab equipment and countless other items that rely on them. But a new chemical ...

Google provides open source library for quantum chemistry

Platform-independent solution to integrate future developments

26-Oct-2017

Since physicists have been dealing with the theoretical description of molecules, the solving of quantum mechanical equations has been a major obstacle. This is supposed to be a thing of the past with the release of an open source based system. Google has introduced such a system to the public ...

New metamaterial can switch from hard to soft - and back again

25-Jan-2017

When a material is made, you typically cannot change whether that material is hard or soft. But a group of University of Michigan researchers have developed a new way to design a "metamaterial" that allows the material to switch between being hard and soft without damaging or altering the ...

A more accurate sensor for lead paint

12-Sep-2016

A new molecular gel recipe developed at the University of Michigan is at the core of a prototype for a more accurate lead paint test. The test makes it easy to see whether a paint chip contains more than the regulated 5,000 parts per million of the poisonous metal that was banned from pigments in ...

Spray-on coating could ice-proof airplanes, power lines, windshields

15-Mar-2016

On your car windshield, ice is a nuisance. But on an airplane, a wind turbine, an oil rig or power line, it can be downright dangerous. And removing it with the methods that are available today--usually chemical melting agents or labor-intensive scrapers and hammers--is difficult and expensive ...
