Printed, flexible and rechargeable battery can power wearable sensors


Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics. The researchers made the ...


New types of structures for cage-like clathrates


Cage-like compounds called clathrates could be used for harvesting waste heat and turning it into electricity. UC Davis chemists just discovered a whole new class of clathrates, potentially opening new ways to make and apply these materials. A clathrate is basically a cage of atoms with another ...

Researchers use graphene templates to make new metal-oxide nanostructures


Researchers from Brown University have found a new method for making ultrathin metal-oxide sheets containing intricate wrinkle and crumple patterns. In a study the researchers show that the textured metal-oxide films have better performance when used as photocatalysts and as battery ...


World Bank Raises 2017 Oil Price Forecast

OPEC agreement to limit production seen sending prices higher


The World Bank is raising its 2017 forecast for crude oil prices to $55 per barrel from $53 per barrel as members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) prepare to limit production after a long period of unrestrained output. Energy prices, which include oil, natural gas ...
