Simulations and experiments reveal unprecedented detail about water’s motion in salt water

Researchers captured extremely fast dynamics


In salt water solutions, water molecules rapidly move around salt ions at a scale of more than a trillion times a second, according to both experiments and simulations led by scientists at New York University and the Sorbonne. “There is more to salt solutions than meets the eye,” said Alexej ...

Self-healing materials for robotics made from ‘jelly’ and salt

materials can detect when they are damaged, take the necessary steps to temporarily heal themselves and then resume work


Researchers have developed self-healing, biodegradable, 3D-printed materials that could be used in the development of realistic artificial hands and other soft robotics applications. The low-cost jelly-like materials, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, can sense strain, ...

Worth their salt: Researchers report first case of hexagonal NaCl


Skoltech and MIPT scientists have predicted and then experimentally confirmed the existence of exotic hexagonal thin films of NaCl on a diamond surface. These films may be useful as gate dielectrics for field effect transistors in electric vehicles and telecommunication equipment. As graphene, ...

Building a better salt trap: Scientists synthesize a molecular 'cage' to trap chloride

New molecule designed at Indiana University could help reduce growing level of salt contaminants flowing into freshwater streams and lakes across the US


Indiana University researchers have created a powerful new molecule for the extraction of salt from liquid. The work has potential to help increase the amount of drinkable water on Earth. Built using chemical bonds previously regarded as too weak, the new molecule is about ten billion times ...

Common table salt may have been crucial for the origins of life


One of the most fundamental unexplained questions in modern science is how life began. Scientists generally believe that simple molecules present in early planetary environments were converted to more complex ones that could have helped jumpstart life by the input of energy from the environment. ...

Salt boosts creation of 2-D materials


A dash of salt can simplify the creation of two-dimensional materials, and thanks to Rice University scientists, the reason is becoming clear. Boris Yakobson, a Rice professor of materials science and nanoengineering and of chemistry, was the go-to expert when a group of labs in Singapore, China, ...


A crystal method

Unlocking another piece of the puzzle that is crystal growth


From Mother Nature to our must-have devices, we're surrounded by crystals. Those courtesy of the former, such as ice and snow, can form spontaneously and symmetrically. But the silicon-based or gallium nitride crystals found in LEDs and other electronics require a bit of coaxing to attain their ...


Small scale, big improvements

Molecular scale science may inform water purification methods, battery improvements


Methods to improve water purification or build better batteries are problems that have challenged scientists for decades. Advances have inched forward, but rising demand moves the finish line further and further away. At the same time, the chemical reactions that make these improvements possible ...

Textile dyeing without effluent

Reverse osmosis and ion exchange go hand in hand


Bleaching and dyeing textile fibers and fabrics without causing any environmental pollution through effluent may sound too good to be true. And yet “minimal liquid discharge” (MLD) and “zero liquid discharge” (ZLD) – i.e. the minimization or complete avoidance of liquid waste – are already a ...


New flow battery offers lower-cost energy storage


Energy storage system owners could see significant savings from a new flow battery technology that is projected to cost 60 percent less than today's standard flow batteries. The organic aqueous flow battery is expected to cost $180 per kilowatt-hour once the technology is fully developed. The ...
