A battery made of wood?


A sliver of wood coated with tin could make a tiny, long-lasting, efficient and environmentally friendly battery. But don’t try it at home yet – the components in the battery tested by scientists at the University of Maryland are a thousand times thinner than a piece of paper. Using sodium ...

Unzipped nanotubes unlock potential for batteries


Researchers at Rice University have come up with a new way to boost the efficiency of the ubiquitous lithium ion (LI) battery by employing ribbons of graphene that start as carbon nanotubes. Proof-of-concept anodes -- the part of the battery that stores lithium ions -- built with graphene ...


Copper, gold and tin for efficient chips


They are particularly small, durable and economical: LEDs have conquered the automotive industry; it is already possible today to recognize the make of a car by the design of the LED headlights. Whether in the interior, displays, infotainment system or brake lights, parking lights or fog lights – ...


Arkema finalizes the divestment of its Tin Stabilizer business to PMC Group


On October 1st 2012 Arkema finalized the divestment of its tin stabilizer business announced in July 2012 to PMC Group, specialized in the manufacture of performance chemicals and plastics. The divested business accounts for sales of around €180 M on three continents, and includes four production ...

Tin-100, a doubly magic nucleus


A few minutes after the Big Bang the universe contained no other elements than hydrogen and helium. Physicists of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), the Cluster of Excellence “Universe” and the Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research (GSI) have now succeeded in producing tin-100, a very ...


Microreactor speeds nanotech particle production by 500 times


Engineers at Oregon State University have discovered a new method to speed the production rate of nanoparticles by 500 times, an advance that could play an important role in making nanotechnology products more commercially practical. The approach uses an arrayed microchannel reactor and a ...


AkzoNobel fined following heat stabilizers investigation


AkzoNobel has confirmed that a fine of up to €40.6 million has been imposed by the European Commission following an investigation into price-fixing involving the company's former Tin Stabilizers (1987-2000) and Esbo/Esters (1991-2000) businesses. These businesses were divested in 2007. The ...

Getting to the roots of lethal hairs

Fine metal hairs, also called metal whiskers, on tin-plated copper cause short circuits in electronic components. An international team of researchers is finding out why they grow


A short circuit can be quite hairy: satellites have failed, a NASA computer centre was repeatedly paralysed and the US public heath authority recalled thousands of pacemakers - all because tin whiskers caused a short circuit in the electronic components of these devices. A team of scientists from ...


Novel chemistry for ethylene and tin


New work by chemists at UC Davis shows that ethylene, a gas that is important both as a hormone that controls fruit ripening and as a raw material in industrial chemistry, can bind reversibly to tin atoms. The research, published Sept. 25 in the journal Science, could have implications for ...


New material for nanoscale computer chips


Nanochemists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Nano-Science Center, Department of Chemistry at University of Copenhagen have developed nanoscale electric contacts out of organic and inorganic nanowires. In the contact they have crossed the wires like Mikado sticks and coupled several ...
