In milliseconds from polluted to clear water

New discoveries in the field of nanoscience

19-May-2021

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces developed a membrane that is composed of a bundle of nanometer-sized tubes. They used it as a nanoreactor to convert water marked with methylene blue into clear water in milliseconds using sunlight as a driver. ‘Running reactions ...

Double-walled nanotubes have electro-optical advantages

01-Apr-2020

One nanotube could be great for electronics applications, but there's new evidence that two could be tops. Rice University engineers already knew that size matters when using single-walled carbon nanotubes for their electrical properties. But until now, nobody had studied how electrons act when ...

Energy Flow in the Nano Range

Two new spectroscopic methods

23-Oct-2019

It is crucial for photovoltaics and other technical applications, how efficiently energy spreads in a small volume. With new methods, the path of energy in the nanometer range can now be followed precisely. Plants and bacteria lead the way: They can capture the energy of sunlight with ...

Coming a step closer to the dream of nanotechnology

Simple synthesis of seeds for standardised carbon nanotubes

02-Sep-2019

Synthesising single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is one of the greatest challenges faced by materials science. They can be synthesised using precursor molecules, so-called seeds, which determine growth. However, this synthesis has not been well researched up to now. Researchers at FAU have now ...

Chemists produce simple fluorescent surfactants

Compounds show promise for use in medicine, manufacturing

07-Aug-2019

Laboratories use surfactants to separate things, and fluorescent dyes to see things. Rice University chemists have combined the two to simplify life for scientists everywhere. The Wiess School of Natural Sciences lab of chemist Angel Martí introduced a lineup of eight fluorescent surfactants in ...

Researchers discover semiconducting nanotubes that form spontaneously

10-Jul-2019

If scientists could find a way to control the process for making semiconductor components on a nanometric scale, they could give those components unique electronic and optical properties - opening the door to a host of useful applications. Researchers at the Laboratory of Microsystems, in EPFL's ...

Researchers examine 'living' nanomaterials for first time

New technology gives insight into how nanomaterials form and grow

01-Jul-2019

A new form of electron microscopy allows researchers to examine nanoscale tubular materials while they are "alive" and forming liquids -- a first in the field. Developed by a multidisciplinary team at Northwestern University and the University of Tennessee, the new technique, called variable ...

Odd reaction creates a stir in the lab

Using certain stir bars can create laboratory errors

02-Apr-2019

The stirrers that mix cream into your coffee probably don't make much difference to the drink. But in a chemistry lab, it turns out using the wrong stirrer can skew the science. Rice University scientists have determined that stir bars made of PTFE, more commonly known as Teflon, can introduce ...
