  • Janus graphene opens doors to sustainable sodium-ion batteries

    In the search for sustainable energy storage, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, present a new concept to fabricate high-performance electrode materials for sodium batteries. It is based on a novel type of graphene to store one of the world's most common and cheap metal ions – more

  • Water detected as a metal at BESSY II

    Under normal conditions, pure water is an almost perfect insulator. Water only develops metallic properties under extreme pressure, such as exists at most in the interior of large planets. Now, an international collaboration has used a completely different approach to produce metallic water and docu more

  • Inexpensive, non-toxic nanofluid could be a game-changer for oil recovery

    Researchers from the University of Houston have demonstrated that an inexpensive and non-toxic nanofluid can be used to efficiently recover even heavy oil with high viscosity from reservoirs. The nanofluid, made in a common household blender using commercially available sodium, allowed for recovery more
