Professors receive $2.5 million to better convert water into clean hydrogen fuel using sunlight


Texas-Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have received about $2.5 million to identify new materials that will efficiently absorb sunlight and split water (H2O) into clean hydrogen fuel, which could power cars and be used to generate electricity. For the next three years, chemical ...

Lower-cost solar cells to be printed like newspaper, painted on rooftops


Solar cells could soon be produced more cheaply using nanoparticle "inks" that allow them to be printed like newspaper or painted onto the sides of buildings or rooftops to absorb electricity-producing sunlight. Brian Korgel, a University of Texas at Austin chemical engineer, is hoping to cut ...


Engineers develop method to disperse chemically modified graphene in organic solvents


A method for creating dispersed and chemically modified graphene sheets in a wide variety of organic solvents has been developed by a University of Texas at Austin engineering team led by Professor Rod Ruoff, opening the door to use graphene in a host of important materials and applications such ...


Nuclear fusion-fission hybrid could contribute to carbon-free energy future


Physicists at The University of Texas at Austin have designed a new system that, when fully developed, would use fusion to eliminate most of the transuranic waste produced by nuclear power plants. The invention could help combat global warming by making nuclear power cleaner and thus a more ...

Oxygen going for gold


Buddie Mullins and co-workers from the University of Texas, in the US, have performed the oxidative dehydrogenation of amines using heterogeneous gold catalysts with chemisorbed atomic oxygen on the gold surface. Mullins and his team show that gold covered with atomic oxygen, in the absence of ...


Dow Water Solutions launches joint development partnership with Virginia Tech and University of Texas at Austin

Multi-year joint development agreement will develop oxidation-resistant reverse osmosis membranes


Dow Water Solutions, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), has reached a multi-year joint development partnership with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) and University of Texas at Austin (UT). Under the agreement, Dow Water Solutions will collaborate ...


Chemical engineers discover new way to control particle motion potentially aiding micro- and nano-fluid systems


Chemical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered a new way to control the motion of fluid particles through tiny channels, potentially aiding the development of micro- and nano-scale technologies such as drug delivery devices, chemical and biological sensors, and components ...


Controlling most atoms now possible

Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin open up new avenues of research using atomic coilguns and lasers


Stopping and cooling most of the atoms of the periodic table is now possible using a pair of techniques developed by physicist Mark Raizen at The University of Texas at Austin. Raizen stopped atoms by passing a supersonic beam through an "atomic coilgun" and cooled them using "single-photon ...
