Researchers crack 50-year-old nuclear waste problem, make storage safer

18-Mar-2016

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have adapted a technology developed for solar energy in order to selectively remove one of the trickiest and most-difficult-to-remove elements in nuclear waste pools across the country, making the storage of nuclear waste safer and ...

Sandcastles inspire new nanoparticle binding technique

11-Aug-2015

If you want to form very flexible chains of nanoparticles in liquid in order to build tiny robots with flexible joints or make magnetically self-healing gels, you need to revert to childhood and think about sandcastles. Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North ...

Organic solar cells more efficient with molecules face-to-face

09-Apr-2014

New research from North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor. This finding may aid in the ...

Nonflammable lithium ion battery

12-Feb-2014

In studying a material that prevents marine life from sticking to the bottom of ships, researchers led by chemist Joseph DeSimone at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have identified a surprising replacement for the only inherently flammable component of today's lithium-ion ...

Sun’s energy during day for use at night

16-Jan-2014

Solar energy has long been used as a clean alternative to fossil fuels such as coal and oil, but it could only be harnessed during the day when the sun’s rays were strongest. Now researchers led by Tom Meyer at the Energy Frontier Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ...

Water-soluble catalyst converts carbon dioxide to promising green fuel

23-Jul-2013

Scientists in the United States have developed a water-soluble catalyst that can selectively reduce carbon dioxide to formate, a promising green fuel for fuel cells. Researchers describe the design of an iridium pincer catalyst that electrocatalytically reduces carbon dioxide to formate in water. ...

Researchers pinpoint how trees play role in smog production

29-Apr-2013

After years of scientific uncertainty and speculation, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill show exactly how trees help create one of society's predominant environmental and health concerns: air pollution. It has long been known that trees produce and emit isoprene, an ...

Switching Qubits with a Terahertz Source?

Rotational transitions induced in molecules on a chip could have important applications in quantum computing

07-Mar-2011

Scientists in Germany and the USA have been able to induce rotational transitions in molecules trapped at a close distance above a chip using a terahertz source. The new results, which are published in ChemPhysChem, could have interesting applications in quantum ...

New UNC experiments show very weak chlorine solutions can kill noroviruses

03-Jan-2006

Chlorine solutions much weaker than previously believed can still be used to kill more than 99 percent of noroviruses, the chief cause of outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness around the world, a new University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill study concludes. Researchers discovered for the ...
