Researchers reveal a novel metal where electrons flow with fluid-like dynamics

"This novel liquid will flow inside the metal exactly in the same way as water flows in a pipe”

08-Sep-2021

A team of researchers from Boston College has created a new metallic specimen where the motion of electrons flows in the same way water flows in a pipe -- fundamentally changing from particle-like to fluid-like dynamics, the team reports in Nature Communications. Working with colleagues from the ...

Microplastics: A Trojan Horse for Metals

Study shows that microplastics can serve as a transport vehicle for metals in the environment

11-Aug-2021

The fact that microplastics can accumulate organic pollutants from the environment and transport them has been known for some time. What is new, however, is that metals can also be transported in this manner. In addition, the smaller the particles, the greater the metal accumulation on the ...

New technology will allow important metals to be made more efficiently

Patented technology will improve production of many electronic and computer components

11-Aug-2021

University of Minnesota Twin Cities College of Science and Engineering researchers have invented a cheaper, safer, and simpler technology that will allow a “stubborn” group of metals and metal oxides to be made into thin films used in many electronics, computer components, and other ...

A promising breakthrough: Nanocrystals made of amalgam

09-Aug-2021

Researchers at ETH have managed to produce nanocrystals made of two different metals using an amalgamation process whereby a liquid metal penetrates a solid one. This new and surprisingly intuitive technique makes it possible to produce a vast array of intermetallic nanocrystals with tailored ...

New 2D alloy combines five metals, breaks down CO2

It's first demonstrated use of a 2D, multi-metallic alloy

02-Jul-2021

A two-dimensional alloy material -- made from five metals as opposed to the traditional two -- has been developed by a collaboration between researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis and researchers at the College of Engineering at the University of ...

Recycled garnet sand as a source of scandium?

07-Jun-2021

Some call it the "oil of the future." This is because demand for scandium is growing, especially due to its potential as a material for lightweight construction of aircrafts and cars, but also for fuel cells. Concurrently, the supply of this critical raw material in Europe is not secure. ...

BASF expands global PGM refining capacity, further driving circular economy business

17-May-2021

BASF announced the expansion of its Seneca, South Carolina, USA, Platinum Group Metals (PGM) refining facility. The company will invest double-digit millions in capital improvements to increase refining capacity to recycle precious metals from spent catalysts such as automotive catalytic ...

Maternal exposure to chemicals linked to autistic-like behaviours in children

31-Mar-2021

A new study by Simon Fraser University's Faculty of Health Sciences researchers found correlations between increased expressions of autistic-like behaviours in pre-school aged children to gestational exposure to select environmental toxicants, including metals, pesticides, polychlorinated ...

Recycle high-tech waste biologically

Innovative biotechnological process extracts gallium from industrial wastewater

18-Mar-2021

Gallium is a rare metal, but it is widely used in the high-tech industry. This extreme contrast makes recycling indispensable. However, current recycling processes are costly and chemically polluted. Biotechnological approaches, therefore, rely on peptides, as they are able to bind metallic ...

How do good metals go bad?

New measurements have solved a mystery in solid state physics: How is it that certain metals do not seem to adhere to the valid rules?

16-Mar-2021

We all have a clear picture in mind when we think of metals: We think of solid, unbreakable objects that conduct electricity and exhibit a typical metallic sheen. The behaviour of classical metals, for example their electrical conductivity, can be explained with well-known, well-tested physical ...
